    Before it was a 90s slasher movie, I Know What You Did Last Summer was actually a novel by Lois Duncan and believe it or not, a very good one Published in 1973 and revised by the author in 2010, I had superficial issues with her decision to rebrand everything from fashion to geopolitics to telephones for the Young Adult reader of today a decision that felt financial as opposed to creative but where it matters, the book generates a terrific amount of suspense and delivers a satisfying payoff without throwing graphic violence, sex or much foul language at the reader In this sense, it s like an Alfred Hitchcock thriller with teens than slasher fare.Set in the vicinity of Silver Spring, Maryland with its mountain roads, the story begins with high school graduate Julie James getting summer off to a promising start when an acceptance letter to Smith College, the alma mater of her widowed mother, arrives in the mail Mrs James has sensed a change in her redheaded cheerleader daughter over the last year, studying harder but having less fun, breaking up with a boy named Ray Bronson, who left town about a year ago and headed to California Julie almost ignores a second letter she s received, one with no return address on the envelope The message in big block printing ominously reads I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER.We next meet Barry Cox, freshman at the local college and a football hero ...

    Find all of my reviews at StarsWelcome to I decided to take a break from my usual selections And read listen to this oldie but goodie to celebrate my favorite time of year Spoiler Alert He s really going to murder her for being a basic white bitch After having a pretty meh time with Killing Mr Griffin during Banned Book Week, I set my expectations super low before starting this one Imagine my delight when I ended up really enjoying it The basic premise was the same group of drunken stumbly teenie boppers kill someone in a hit and run and then decide Little plot twist in the book version they didn t run over an adult instead it was a kid A year goes by when suddenly the teens start receiving notes That have them concerned their secret might get out Or worse I Know What You Did Last Summer stood the test of time surprisingly well While it has obviously been updated since its original release back in the 70s, a thorough job was done here making the modern day references effortless instead of standing out like a sore thumb It does date itself with antiquated remarks regarding things of a girly nature, but if you aren t o...

    Not the greatest film in the world and even worse of a book I Know What You Did Last Summer is so cheesy and predictable that it seems almost on purpose The characters are ridiculous caricatures of typical teens and they acted completely ridiculous at the best of times.

    Okay guys, I read this book when I was in fourth grade when the movie came out so my recollection will be a little bit foggy Just go with me on this, okay view spoiler Yes, I was 9 when I read this Can you believe that Accelerated Reader didn t even give a quiz for this back in...

    I read this novel in one sitting It wasn t the most enjoyable book I have read, but it wasn t unexciting either I would have probably enjoyed this novel way if I had read it when I was about 13 years old The concept and plot of the book grabbed my attention which is why I decided to read it Also, the length of the book was ideal, just in case if I didn t enjoy it I wouldn t have wasted too much time on it It was quite entertaining, but it lacked suspense for me At first I found it to be captivating, but during some chapters I felt like it was predictable I did however enjoy the main characters, I felt like they were well written and weren t confusing to keep up with The author didn t flood you with an excessive amount of characters in the novel so you could easily distinguish them from one another I felt like I was watching a horror movie as opposed to feeling as if I was in the characters shoes I also exp...

    3.5 stars As plenty of you, I know this movie since I think it is one of the most representatives from the 90 s and one of my favorites may I say, since it has an iconic cast and I found it fun and suspenseful as well Sadly, if you are looking to see the movie turning into a book you will be wrong As me and here are my thoughts Plot Development This book tells us the story of four teenagers who are involved in an accident, that ends up wrong since it turns for them to kill someone Months later, Julie receives a letter with I know what you did last summer written on it and by then, everything changes.Honestly, the plot is always there, you will found it in every chapter and each one of the character is tortured in different ways, so that causes the students to create changes in their way of seeing their lives The Development is a page turner, but I think it is very predictable since the middle of the book, at least for me, even though I read it till the end because I wanted to know what would happen Characters With four main characters two boys and two girls , it was amazing the fact that they had this oldie vibe and even when they are the clich personalities Good, Bad, Innocent, Sil...

    2.5 StarsI came across this book sometime last year at a library book sale I didn t know this was a book I watched the movie a long time ago and I ve watched it several times since then When I saw this at my local library I decided to get it because I actually really liked the movie and I assumed I would enjoy the book just as much if not Unfortunately that wasn t the case for this book.As I mentioned above I watched the movie long before I ever read the book so its possible that if I had done it the other way around I would have actually really enjoyed the book I was expecting this to be pretty similar to the movie but it was completely different.I can t really get into all the details of everything that s different without spoiling the whole book so this is going to be a hard one to review Most of the characters were so annoying Even though I watched the movie ...

    WARNING THIS WARNING CONTAINS A SPOILER THAT THIS BOOK WAS MADE INTO A MOVIE Hopefully you didn t just read that For those of you who were smart enough to skip that spoiler you can now read in confidence knowing that you will not be told that the book was made into a movie You will live in happy naivety thinking that the book is a self contained form of media in which this narrative lives Unfortunately, you will be wrong.Since I have neither read the book, nor seen the movie I can safely say that I am an objective critic when it comes to comparing the book to the movie At this point I rate them dead even Their titles are exactly the same and I have mild interest in finding out what occurred last summer in either format In the movie I will expect great special effects and bad acting In the book I...

    One is never to old to read the classic mystery I know what you did last summer which was also a movie not a very good one and spawned many a copy c at book with a similiar premise.I first read this as a kid I am a huge fan of Louis Duncan s work and this was one of her best novels The premise is simple A group of 4 teenagers, out late one night, partying it up, hit a boy on a bike and do not stop They make a pact to keep what happened a secret.One year later, Julie James one of the members of said pact, receives a letter in the mail All it says is I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER.This book was so damn good And I sort of wish the movie spin off had not happened as they took the original premise..and it WAS original back then..and turned it into a horror slasher movie which in my opinion is unforgivable given that the original book was so readable I would have liked to see the film follow the book.What is also great are the characterizations Duncan was always so good at that You feel you know everyone from Julie to h...

    I ve found that I love Lois Duncan s writing style, her stories, and her hidden layers, but this one fell a bit short It s ironic since out of the stories I ve read of hers, this is inferior, but it s the most popular because of the movie.The film, by the way, is much different We don t get a hand hook killer tracking down the teenagers Here it s a mini mystery The ending is rather simple and cheesy Backstory is depressing, you feel for the victim and the consequences I liked the main character and her personality shone through pretty well Since the pool of possibilities is narrow, the villain isn t a huge surprise I dug the twist about the flowers and it s false impressions, painting a potential hero as the ultimate enemy.Tension is present, although nothing heart pounding There s little gore and a lower body count than the movie As with the film, the sister o...
