The Last Summer - of You & Me
Author: Ann Brashares
In the town of Waterby on Fire Island, the rhythms and rituals of summer are sacrosanct: the ceremonial arrivals and departures by ferry; yacht club dinners with terrible food and breathtaking views; the virtual decree against shoes; and the generational parade of sandy, suntanned kids, running, swimming, squealing, and coming of age on the beac...  more »

I have to be honest, I loved the Traveling Pants movie and was very excited when this book came was painfully difficult to read. SO boring, I only kept reading it to se if SOMETHING....ANYTHING would happen. It was a huge dissapointment for me, but maybe my reading tastes are very different............Her style of writing is unique to say the least, but not for me.........sorry all you fans!

I had a hard time getting into this one and at the first I had a hard time discerning when she changed from the present to the past and back again. After the first few chapters I did begin to enjoy the book and although it was somewhat predictable it was a very good story. I enjoyed the setting, the descriptions made you feel like you could actually see the places from the book. Certainly worth the read.

I had high hope for this book. I loved Brashares' Sisterhood series and was excited when she came out with a book for adults. The book was a disappointment, I read it over a span of a weekend and was happy when I got to the last page. The characters are supposed to be in their early 20s but they feel so much younger - they acted more immature than her teen characters in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. It seemed that Brashares wanted to try to write something deep and meaningful, but it just was one hyperbolic paragraph after the other.

This is a wonderful book about how childhood feelings affect our adult life and relationships...paired with a beach feel like you are there with them. Her writing may not be for everyone, but this book was a pleasant surprise.

Having read and enjoyed the Traveling Pants series, I was eager to read the first adult book by
Brashares. While I enjoyed the underlying story quite a bit, it seemed a bit choppy at times.

BORING! Forced myself to finish it and basically skimmed the last third of it. Not even sure why I finished it, but I wanted to make sure at least it ended up the way I thought it should. Didn't seem to be a real storyline, "story" was about sisters, Riley and Alice, and their relationship with Paul; Riley's storyline - and that whole situation was handled very strangely - and then the relationship (or not) of Alice and Paul, and that got pretty weird too. Very disappointing and a waste of time.
