I Know What You Did Last Summer | [Lois Duncan]

I Know What You Did Last Summer

They didn't mean it. They didn't mean to hit the boy. There was a party, and it was an accident... that wasn't who they were. They were pre-law, a football player, bound for New York. No one could know, so Barry, Julie, Helen, and Ray swore one another to secrecy. But now, a year later, someone knows. Julie receives a haunting, anonymous threat: "I know what you did last summer." The dark lie is unearthed, and before the four friends know it they need to outsmart a killer... or they will be the next to die.

    "A Quick But Engrossing Listen"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Entertainment value of this book is high. Also, I've heard the movie referenced for years & wondered what the buzz was about. It's not a book to change your life, but I kept listening every chance I had because it does draw you in.


    Would you recommend I Know What You Did Last Summer to your friends? Why or why not?

    I'd recommend it, especially to young people, which I'm sure is the target audiience. But even this 62-year-old grandma enjoyed it.


    Have you listened to any of Dennis Holland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first performance of Dennis Holland I have listened to. He had a good voice and presentation for this type of fiction.


    Was I Know What You Did Last Summer worth the listening time?

    Worth the listening time for me. Not so deep or complex that you can't be doing something else while listening. I enjoyed it.

    "Super Short, but entertaining"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have made it longer, and a little more suspenseful.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasnt a bad listen at all. There just could have been a lot more to it. I think I expected something a little longer and suspenseful because of the movie. Still, as usual, the book was better.

    Story
    "Great Class Novel"
    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The film didn't do this book justice. It (the book) is so much better. I have to remind my students that you can't start the book thinking about the movie, because it is so different. This gets the class engaged to what is in store.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book for struggling readers. It keeps them on the edge of their seats the entire time. My class has read it every year and even the ones who have to read it again are excited to find the clues they missed the first time.

    "Awesome Listen"
    If you could sum up I Know What You Did Last Summer in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, Exciting, Enjoyable


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Julie because she seemed like an honest good person that got mixed up in something terrible. She was strong and confident and deeply effected by the murder and you could always tell she wanted to do the right thing.


    Have you listened to any of Dennis Holland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first audio book and I followed along great with Dennis Holland and will be sure to find more of his readings.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I know what you did last summer.


    Any additional comments?

    What is the book about?
    Barry, Julie, Ray, and Helen are all driving around having fun as normal teenagers when the unthinkable happens to them. They make a pact to never tell anyone what they did and what they saw. A year has passed and now Julie is receiving odd messages. Messages that clearly shows someone knows their secret. The group of friends teams up to try and find out who knows what really happened.
    What did I think of the book?
    It's summer and I wanted to read a quick book that I had read before. Although the book isn't as thrilling and scary as I usually like my books to be it's a fun quick mystery that I've read over and over again just for fun. It's a classic in my bookshelf.

    "Awful is too good a word....."

    Downloaded this for a light beach listen. Horrible. Awful. Rotten. Stupid. I can go on. Nothing like the movie, other than the names. No one even dies.....though my ears bled.

    "I'm glad it wasn't a long book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I wasn't ever caught up in the "suspense" and never really connected to the characters. I thought it was sort of boring.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lois Duncan? Why or why not?

    Maybe


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dennis Holland?

    Probably not. There are so many other narrators that are so much better


    Was I Know What You Did Last Summer worth the listening time?

    Not really.

    "First grade level!"

    I bought this book because it was advertised as a "sleeper". I could not get past the 2nd chapter with putting this in archive! It was awful.
