I read this as a proof as part of my job and it's been a long time since I found a book I couldn't put down. Now in my 30's it can be tough reviewing books for teenagers but this was terrific. Gritty, modern and fast paced I was reading this in my lunch hour, before bed, on days off just to find out what happened next! Deals with murder, drugs, drink and sexual themes so definately a teenage read. Terrific stuff.

Pete is a 16-year-old boy, who has received a phone call from his old friend, Nicole. Pete gets invited to a fairground, with his old gang, twins Nicole and Eric, Pauly and Raymond. That night all secrets start to unvail, when local celebrities and close friends go missing, and the only person he can turn to is a concrete rabbit, and a fortune teller. Death isn't too far away. And with Wes Cambell, the neigh-bourhood thug around, Pete can never be too safe at home.

I got this book recently from the local library in town. I had never heard of the author before or the book. So i started reading it the same day, and it took me around 4hours all together to finish it, i simply couldn't put it down!
The way Kevin Brooks tells the story is so moving, and he makes sure every single intricate detail is included. I thought Pete's story was amazingly wrote, and thats coming from a 13 year old girl! Kevin Brooks could possibly be my new favourite author, and i would recommend this to any person with taste in books!

A friend lent this book to my 15-year old daughter to encourage her reading. I ended up reading it myself and am not impressed. The story that evolves only because a 16-year old boy who doesn't seem to sleep or eat for prolonged periods of time just keeps defying his policeman Dad and getting himself in some very dangerous situations is quite unbelievable. I only finished to see what happened and the ending was disappointing.

I have to confess, that the main reason I bought Black Rabbit Summer was its cover. But once I'd studied the cover and read the text on the back of the book I bought it.
A few weeks after as I was looking around in my book shelf, I found Black Rabbit Summer and started reading it.
Already after three or four pages I found myself totally engrossed in the story, which had not unfolded at all yet, but which was the start of a story that would be absorbed in for next while.

The book tells the story of Pete Boland and his friend Raymond. One summer night the two of them join an old group of friends to the fair ground.
Affected by drugs, alcohol and memories Pete ends up walking away from the fair ground alone. Without Raymond.
The night has been a horrible experience for Pete, who has been running around all night, searching for his friend. But Pete hasn't had the worst experience by far that night, as the famous girl Stella Ross has disappeared too.
However the police have an idea to where she is in contrast to Raymond as they have found Stella's cloths down by the river. Stella's blood strained clothes.
Now Raymond is the prime suspects, but Pete is sure that he could never have done anything to Stella or anyone else and is determined to find Raymond and Stella and find out the truth.

I thought this book was totally unputdownable. While I read it I was always either reading or when that wasn't possible, thinking about it. Even when I finished it the story still went round and round in my head for quiet some time.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, the plot was gripping and intriguing. I read it in two days and it was one of those books that you just can't put down. However, I found the ending quite disappointing. It felt rushed, and although I wasn't expecting a happy ending, many things weren't resolved, including one of the major plot lines of the book.
Overall, it was a good read, and I will be reading more novels by Kevin Brooks. I would recommend the book, despite the frustrating ending.

this book is just like the title- swelteringly fast, provoking burning intensity, and dark in a sort of crazy way. but the one thing i would reprimand it for? just like summer, this too ended too soon, and left me swimming around for answers that Kevin brooks simply hadn't provided. all in all, a wonderful book though, twisting and turning and keeping you locked in it's grasp long after you finish it.

This book is THE best book I have ever read. It keeps you gripped and on the edge of your seat all the way through. The ending has an unexpected twist, and it is a bit gruesome in parts! Overall, the book is fantastic for anyone aged 12+!!

Despite the fact i did get utterly hooked on this book, the ending was a real disapointment - i just didn't understand it, Brooks had created so many weird and thrilling twists but he never tied up the ends. It was almost like he had said, 'And i woke up and it was all a dream!'
