This book is for James Nelson DeMille, a new chapter in my life. The reason I’ve returned to America has to do with the former residents of this gatehouse, George and Ethel Allard, who had been old Stanhope family retainers. George, a good man, had died a decade ago, and his wife, Ethel, who is not so nice, is in hospice care and about to join her husband, unless George has already had a word with St. Peter, the ultimate gatekeeper.

The second book in the John Sutter series. Susan draws near to the house, then dismounts and tethers Zanzibar to a tree. She walks to the edge of a long marble reflecting pool set in a classical garden of mock Roman ruins. This book is for James Nelson DeMille, a new chapter in my life.

Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). The rub is how long it takes. The plot finally gets going in the last few chapters, and the loose ends left laying around get tied up. i have to say that times i really had to slog through this.

The main character, John Sutter, immediately incurs the readers dislike by being haughty and talking down to his audience. The second character, his ex-wife Susan, appears completely without intellect but with the single ability to offer sex to John. Two other characters are her parents who are overly stereotypical inherited rich jerks. It is difficult to find anything of value in a book when the main characters are so shallow. The plot is ordinary with an expected ending. If offered for free, find something else to read.

I am confused! Did Susan have an affair with Frank? Did she kill him? DeMille never tells the reader about these events - the writing is far too subtle.
Kidding. Of course. Sheesh - every other page references the affair and the killing. I am not about to start counting, but the references have to be in the hundreds. Where on Earth were the editors?
Mr. DeMille, I am crazy about your other books - The Gold Coast included - but this was just plain awful!

i read the first installment of the story, and decided to read the second one, but took the extra step of looking at online reviews and couldn't quite understand why readers weren't all over themselves for this book. Well, after reading it, I understand.

i have read most of DeMille's later books and liked them, then I saw the John Sutter series and started in. Even the first book of the series was really slow out of the gate, and I actually put it down for awhile while I read a few faster-paced novels. I picked it up again and finished it... which led me to the sequel, The Gate House.

Again, this one is really slow out of the gate, maybe even slower than book 1. DeMille spends a lot of time setting scenes and building his characters, so that when the action picks up, you know something about them... The rub is how long it takes.

The plot finally gets going in the last few chapters, and the loose ends left laying around get tied up. i have to say that times i really had to slog through this.

I will give the author some slack, as these were early novels, as he was finding his way through the craft of storytelling. the later books have much tighter plots and are more satisfying reads. I liked the Sutters, and wouldn't mind reading about their continued adventures. Apparently, two books is it for them.

Now I understand the other reviewer's ratings. A good story, but more like a rush hour traffic jam than a wide-open road..

I love to read Nelson DeMille books, and have read the entire series from cover to cover three times now. The Gate House starts on the right premise, then gets lost. It’s like the editor lost out when he said “Nelson, take the first 25 pages, add a story about Nissim (and wrap that one up), then finish with the last 25 pages. I give you 200 pages total - tops.” What we were left with was long, drawn out blah, blah, with the Gatehouse and Standhope Hall ignored. And a completely undeveloped plot about an Iranian with a target on his back.

The story is told in a linear timeline fashion from a single character's point of view; not the most complex plot and a bit boring if your taste in novels is the development of many elements that eventually intertwine. Also, the character's attitudes are expressed way too repetitively; I found myself thinking, "OK, I get it". The story is a follow-on to Demille's The Gold Coast. That's fine, but it seemed to depend too much on references to the previous story. I did read The Gold Coast so it was hard for me to judge how much of the current story would be lost if the former hadn't been read. This felt like DeMille was under the gun to publish a lot of pages and just phoned it in.

This is the first DeMille novel I've read. I'm half way through and am enjoying it. This isn't The Best Book Ever Written, but it's an easy read diversion.

The main character is funny & sarcastic. There's dark humor, so if you don't like it, or can't understand it, just pass. Some of the reviewers must be challenged because it's not that hard to follow. There are multi-syllabic words so beware. It's also got some bad words and a tiny bit of sex.

DeMille is one of the great writers I've had the pleasure to read. Having read all of the Corey books, went back and read the Sutters as well. While I'll admit "The Gold Coast" was a little more in depth on the history of the aristocracy and their lifestyle there, any downside to book 1 was more than offset by "The Gate House. Great characters, flow, and, of course, the humor that makes DeMille one of a kind. My only question is whether there will be at least one more Sutter, or for that matter, Corey book to look forward to.
I am a Nelson DeMille fan but I would still be critical of his work if I felt it warranted. That having been established, I really enjoyed The Gate House. It was an entertaining follow-up to Gold Coast and in many ways I would consider this book slightly superior to Gold Coast. The writing style is great. The book addressed betrayal, revenge, reconciliation, temptation, sex, death, and a rebirth of sorts. The story, as told by Attorney Sutter, was intriguing with its drama and humor. It was fun to read, I didn't expect the ending but certainly liked it. I would most assuredly recommend this book and to the folks who don't appreciate the wit or sarcasm of Messrs. Sutter and Corey, I recommend they try Tolstoy or some other high brow pursuit such as opera or quantum physics. As for me, the book was too short because I enjoyed it so much. Keep them coming Mr. DeMille and thank you for a most plesureable reading experience.
