believe Could one of their own, one of the old gang, be a killer I want to start out by mentioning that I usually don t read books narrated by guys I don t really know why, but usually I just don t feel as connected to the novel That said, Black Rabbit Summer might be one of my favorite books It was absolutely stunning There was just something so ridiculously deep about it It might have been the narrator or Brooks himself, but this book simply shines It w Un Estate Torrida E Pete Ha Gi Passato Diverse Settimane Senza Fare Altro Che Ciondolare Per Casa Fino A Quando Una Telefonata Gli Cambia

twist of emotion, adventure and surprise I laughed, I cried, I changed for the better as a person I must have read and reread it a million times Whatever Amazingly, all my life until now my junior year this was the response to the oh so rarely asked question, What is your favorite book Then I discovered Black Rabbit Summer Now, sitting in the library on my own I tended to be rather curious about anything with a cover and a spine and words printed into yellowing pages I surf endlessly through the YA Section, looking for something to get my hands on At first, a book that caught my eye was Kissing the Rain, by the author Kevin Brooks I didn t hesitate to pick it up because a the title sounded awesome b the summary sounded awesomer and c the cover art was twice as awesome and told me this was to be a memorable kind of novel And a few shelves down I found another book by the same author, much thicker and with a rather somber and straightforward cover of four teenagers Summary looked okay The title sounded freaking epic So I shoved it under my arm because why not Okay, so I never ever will ever regret that I read this book because DAMN, did I ever enjoy it Since The Fa This book is a coming of age crime thriller for teenagers I m not a teenager, and I m not really a fan of thrillers This book isn t for me And yet, I thought it was awesome.The plot centres around of group of friends in their mid teens As with any decent thriller, there s sex, booze, drugs and missing people I ve often said that moral ambiguity is the key to any good story, and you ll find that in abundance here.This book might be marketed to teenagers, but the quality of the writing is very high, better than most thrillers I ve read that are aimed at adults It cleverly interweaves a genuinely thrilling mystery with neat social commentary and acutely observed humour centred around the teenager parent relationship The plot is of it s time it s only four years old, and many of the references are already dated but the themes are timeless rich versus poor, stereotypes versus reality, childhood versus adulthood.There s a brilliant thread of hallucinations and psychiatric disturbance that runs through this novel and there are key plot points to explain it I mention this only because it demonstrates that this book deals with complex con Kevin Brooks slow claps.Once again you have shoved me into a world of mystery, tugged at my fangirl feelings, played with my mind and as a result left me utterly scarred for life Okay, first of all, this book is so beautifully entwined together with mystery, grim themes, brilliant characters and not to mention those staggering plot twists It was going so well I thought I loved it I thought this book and I had a connection I thought wrong I was on the last chapter, devouring each page and as I turned that last page and my eyes swooped in that last sentence I just couldn t screams The ending is so sudden and empty that the magnificent feeling that was building up inside of me as I was reading, merely fell away lamely as I reached the last sentence AND JUST NO WHY cries It was going so well I just I mean I understand that perhaps Brooks wishes to leave the reader on a cliff hanger and let them use their imagination but after being on such an emotional journey with this book frankly, I was expecting something grander and well, mind blowing Don t get me wrong, I mean, I m not the type of girl who favours the and they lived happily ever after books I m not really the type to criticize books either I m a fan of many genres and I love all sorts of endings as long as the ending does justice to the rest of the book I just feel like the ending of Black Rabbit Summer, didn t.Despite this, I do generally love Kevin Brooks I love having my mind ripped to shreds, I thought I was going to like this book the first three hundred pages or so Sure, the narrator isn t exactly likeable, but he makes you want to keep reading in the hope of finding out what happens to his best friend Raymond The book makes you think this is what it s actually about However, it becomes much centered around all its little rabbit trails pun intended Stella, Eric and Campbell, Nic, etc Not only does the entire direction of the book shift, none of my questions are remotely answered What happens to Raymond Who kills his rabbit Is SERIOUSLY Perch questo romanzo non ha un seguito Dov il mio finale Kevin Brooks, ah Il libro mi veramente piaciuto ma pi le pagine e si assottigliavano pi mi rendevo conto che scoprire la fine di Raymond era impossibile e di fatti scopriamo che fine fanno TUTTI tranne Raymond, Raymond che il protagonista indiscusso di questa storia Il narratore Pete ma il protagonista Raymond, l unico personaggio di cui alla fine mi fregasse davvero qualcosa Mi bastava anche una sol Wow Just when I thought something good would come out from this book, it went straight from being average to zero Here s the thing, when you write about a certain character a large portion of it , you expect the reader to care about the particular character Well, for me at least I did I cared for Raymond The rest of the character Brooks could have written about them getting into a car accident and died And I still wouldn t give a crap about them Because I like the way Brooks describe Raymond as a friend, the only friend to Pete That was the main factor that kept me glued to the book The whole point of reading further was to find out WHAT REALLY HAPPEN TO RAYMOND But no, it went circling around between the cops and pete, back to the fortune teller, talking to a black rabbit, hearing whispering raymond, back to the fair, Pete s annoying desire of wanting to do nothing but stare at his bedroom ceiling i think i ve never been annoyed by a character as worst as pete The next thing I know the who What did I read
