A whole credit, really?????

Because I love this author I immediately bought the next two books for a credit each. It was not until the first book ended so abruptly that I realized the books were only 2 hours long. The book was only an introduction of charters. Audible, shame on YOU!

Waste of credit!

I’m a big fan of Elin but this is a worthless book. Very disappointed. No purpose and dings her name. Going to return.

So short

I was not paying attention and didn’t realize this is was a very short story, that left me unhappy with the outcome of one of the characters and A lot is left up in the air. I would end your story with ‘69 and not read this one. I was happier with the ending of the first book and left kind of let down with the ending of ‘79.

I feel ripped off.

This hardly ties up the story of all these characters. It feels opportunistic and not at all typical of this author. Half of the book is a reiteration of Summer of ‘69 and I’m left wanting the ending. There’s no ending, just a continuation. No finality and a bad taste in my mouth is what I’m left with, sadly, and wanted more from Elin. I expected more.

Catching up with the family

In THE SUMMER OF ‘79, a short story, the family from Elin Hilderbrand’s THE SUMMER OF ‘69, Gathers on Nantucket for matriarch Exalta’s funeral. Youngest Jessie in law school rides with older sister Kirby, a writer for Cosmopolitan magazine. Recently divorced Blair and her twins looks for love in old familiar faces while Tiger and his wife hope to conceive a baby. Their mother Kate wonders who she is now that her formidable mother has died.

While THE SUMMER OF ‘79 was enjoyable, I have the same criticisms I had with THE SUMMER OF ‘69. Hilderbrand throws in cultural references, tv shows and songs from the 1970s, including a few slang words from back in the day, which felt more like Hilderbrand’s fond memories than integral parts of the story. What makes most of Hilderbrand’s books special is their timelessness. I recently reread two books from a decade ago that could have happened yesterday or fifty years ago. Making THE SUMMER OF ‘79 specific to that year didn’t feel as organic as they felt manufactured to fit a scenario.

Readers who enjoyed THE SUMMER OF ‘69 will enjoy THE SUMMER OF ‘79.

An utter waste of a credit

Why the author felt she had to write this 2 hour follow up to her book Summer of '69 is well and truly beyond me. I loved the first book - I am the right age to appreciate it - but there was no need to add anything further. This "novella" is a complete an utter waste of a credit and I would not recommend it even if you loved The Summer of '69.
