N iconic cast and I found it fun and suspenseful
As Well Sadly If You Are Looking To See The well Sadly if you are looking to see the turning into a book you will be wrong As me and here are my thoughtsPlotDevelopment 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 changesHonestly 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 happenCharacters With four main characters two boys and two irls it was amazing the fact that they had this oldie vibe and even when they are the clich personalities Good Bad Innocent Silly Handsome Pretty etc I found it interesting and I think this can be passed on because of the time it was written As for the secondary characters all of them play an important role Parents changing situations and Friends creating Virgin Widow gossipsGenre This is a YA Mystery which plays veryood with it I recommend it for the people who wants to Wife in Exchange get introduced in thisenre and love the old vibes It is not scary at all and if you love cheesy movies or books this one would be your choiceEnding As I said previously was predictable since the middle of the book for me but for certain reasons I enjoyed how it ends not because it was the best ending but because of the resolution and conclusion of ideas that were presented at the beginning Could be an open ending but based on the time that was written it is an ending that could be totally inferredWriting I read the second version of the book which was re written so there is no other to say that you will be reading a classic writing with new fashion vocabularyAs an extra I loved the reader uestions and the A with the author because my doubts about the film were solvedFavorite Character HelenFavorite uote If you can t run away Julie said Chokingly What can you doFace up to it 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 The Eternal Ice (Magic: The Gathering: Ice Age Cycle, goodie to celebrate my favorite time of year Spoiler Alert He s reallyoing to murder her for being a basic white bitchAfter 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 Night And Day 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 yearoes by when suddenly the teens start receiving notes That have them concerned their secret might Tennessee Takedown / Ravens Hollow 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 antiuated remarks regarding things of airly nature but if you aren t of the easily offended variety you can simply laugh it off as talk of the olde days of yore Although I did see the whodunit from about a football field away there was a little something extra that I wasn t really looking for that ended up being a pretty decent bonus Fairly PG references to underage drinking and smoking pot that wouldn t pass the test with some parents for youngsters to read this Halloween season Not the reatest 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 It wasn t until recently that I found out that one of my favourite movies of the late 90 s was actually based on a book but what is surprising is how different they both feelI d not realised that I was in fact reading an updated version of the story with talk of cell phones and CDs it felt very much of that time period It wasn t until mentions of the Ira war that I d finally realised that changes had been made OopsThis book is clearly being aimed at people like me who have come to it because of the film it was suspenseful that the slasher flick and I uite enjoyed it for thatThe main plot of teens covering up a hit and run indecent is still the main part of the

Lois Duncan Ü 6 SummaryR year of high school for Julie and then hopefully college The idea of an unwed pregnancy or a very young marriage was not easy for her to acceptIn the 2010 revision of I Know What You Did Last Summer Lois Duncan made a number of superficial changes to her 1973 text A few are hard to spot like a blue pantsuit changing to blue pants and a blouse Vietnam and an antiwar demonstration are changed to Ira and an indiscriminate campus demonstration A noticeable change is the juggling act Duncan has to do with mobile phones which could have solved her mystery in half an hour if characters were easily able to contact each other or authorities in an emergency In the inferior revised edition all manner of dead batteries dropped signals or landlines still strangely in use are offered to keep the plot Life Changing Smiles goingThere are reasons why a novel written in the 1970s or 80s should not be revised for the Information Age even a novel that on the surface seems to be little than a Young Adult thriller The world has changed so much in forty years that relabeling is not sufficient to pass Duncan s story off as one that could take place today The catalyst of I Know What You Did Last Summer is a boy on a bicycle being struck by a hit and run driver at ten o clock at night plausible and effective in 1973 but today when all bicycles have reflectors and all children are cocooned in safetyear not to mention uarded by anxious parents who rarely let their children out of sight this scenario feels like a stretchThis sort of reboot feels like a financial ambit than one made to improve uality of the book and I Know What You Did Last Summer is compelling enough not to need it Duncan does a wonderfully subtle job of Only a Whisper generating tension with characters who ve committed an irrevocable crime and are wrapped so tight withuilt that the slightest tug might force them to snap This is a thriller where I was able to feel empathy not only with the protagonists but their tormentor who unlike the boogeyman in the derivative 1997 slasher film and its seuels inflicts psychic violence as opposed to mostly physical The reveal in his identity also altered for the movies is novel as wellDuncan who allows her teenagers some illegal substances but lets the reader imagine how much sex they ve experimented with should be respected for writing a terrifying book without racking up dead bodies More sinister and imaginative is how Duncan keeps the teenagers alive In addition to the uilt that s been building over a year each character is dragged into their own level of hell A sports hero view spoilermay not walk again hide spoiler Girls like her are a dime a dozen and I happen to have a pocket full of dimes Lois Duncan I Know What You Did Last SummerOne is never to old to read the classic mystery I know what you did last summer which was also a movie not a very ood one and spawned many a copy c at book with a similiar premiseI 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 fan of Louis Duncan s work and this was one of her best novels The is simple A roup of 4
