Reviews - What do our customers think?
A laugh-out-loud tearjerker  Sep 25, 2009
I don't know when I've fallen in love with a book like I did with Last Days of Summer. Touching, poignant, moving, and at the same time hysterically funny. I borrowed a copy from the library to read it for my book club, but will be purchasing a copy for my personal book collection so my husband and son (when he's a bit older) can read it. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Should be on Every High School Reading List  May 26, 2009
In an age when celebrities get paid millions of dollars and letters between people are little blips of internet jargon, this book brings back all the love of the 1940s for those men who made life a bit more interesting. It is a great read, a good laugh, and a lesson in the love of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
A book you can read again and again  Feb 23, 2009
I read this book several years ago and was completely enchanted by it, despite that a novel dealing with baseball and World War II didn't sound like my cup of teen. I loved the characters and was moved from laughter to tears in the space of a few pages.

I read it again a few months ago and found it every bit as good as the first time I read it.
I'm heartbroken  Aug 13, 2008
My introduction to Steve Kluger was with "Almost Like Being In Love." The format threw me for a bit, but, once used to the manner in which the author was to tell his story, I went on to enjoy this delightful story. Next came this book..."Last Days of Summer." I found the author's website and wrote him an e-mail; I was about thirty pages short of the book's end at that moment. I sent another e-mail after finishing the book, heartbroken by the story's ending, yet having thoroughly been moved by spending time with such wonderfully fleshed-out characters. Read the, I'd go so far as to say, "Read anything by Steve Kluger." He's a great storyteller...combining both humor and pathos expertly.
Good, breezy read  Jul 27, 2008
What's the difference between a Young Adult (YA) and a regular ol' adult novel? In this case, only a few words and phrases. Otherwise, this book contains all of the standard YA elements.

The wisecracking loner main character? Check. (Though he becomes less of a loner as the story progresses.) The dysfunctional but eccentrically entertaining family? Check. The unlikely good influence with issues of his own? Check? The Tragic Moment? Check. Only a sprinkling of f-bombs and other salty language keeps "The Last Days of Summer" off high school library shelves everywhere. It's like something Avi would write, only earthier.

This is not to say that it's a poor or childish book. Far from it. The notes & letters format, the imminently likeable characters, and the breezy plot pull you in quickly, making it hard to put it down. Nothing really happens that you didn't expect would happen, yet the ride in so enjoyable that you won't mind.

One thing that really annoyed me was that all of the letters, notes, and whatever used to create the book are written in the same sardonically streetwise style. The two main characters writing similarly is understandable, since their similarity is what brings them together. But Wilke-supporting conservative schoolteachers and busy US Army commanders writing report card comments and internal memos in the same style as witty young Joey Margolis? It's a stretch.

But that's a minor quibble. Overall, I enjoyed this book a lot and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind just a little coarseness about the edges.
