It's completely different from the film that was made about it. There's not really a 'killer' in this book, it's more of a stalker who just watches and sends notes. It's not even that suspenseful. There's better scary books out there, like Trick or Treat by Jackson Sharp is one I'm reading right now that's quite creepy. But this book just didn't have the same effect as the movie. I don't say this much but the movie was better than the book haha. I'd give it a miss if I was you. (less)

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 ...more

Welcome 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 enjo

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)

So the plot of this story centers on Julie James (view spoiler)

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.

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 more 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 ...more

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 l

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
Four kids drive home after a high-school-party, everyone - including the driver - a bit intoxicated and tipsy. Then happens what always happens in such situations: an accident on a dark road. They knocked over a young boy, riding with his bicycle. For fear of the police they don't administer first aid but instead do a hit-and-run.

One year later - they've almost forgotten the incident - they're reminded of it via mysterious letters. Someone outside of their circle seems to know their dark secret.

Wow. I remember loving this book as a 7th grader. Oh, how my tastes have changed. It was so bad. Nothing happens: boring, boring, boring! The only interesting part is what everyone already knows about the story.

I loved this guilty pleasure read. I thought it was different from the movie,but then again I couldn't really remember the movie. I think I was just in the mood for some mystery and silly suspense.
