I absolutely loved this. I remember getting goose bumps when I was reaching the end of the story and had figured out what was happening. Tense, full of suspense, I first read this in my mid teens, when I was still waiting for life to happen. The characters all seemed so cool and I would have loved to have been a part of their crowd before the accident. Midnight picnics, teenage romance, cars, beer and smoking pot, it all seemed so exciting and daring. Pretty tame compared to how my latter teenage years turned out! I downloaded the Kindle version recently and although I enjoyed reading it again, I was very disappointed to discover that it had been updated. In my opinion, this never works, the book was written in the seventies and should have been left there. Any reader should be able to appreciate that it was written a long time ago and be able to adjust to that time period for the duration of the book. The film adaptation was quite simply dire and only loosely based on the original story. This story should still appeal to teenagers today and is well worth a read.

The movie did not do the book justice. The movie is a ridiculous piece of **** which does not in any way follow the correct storyline. The killer is different and is a character that makes more sense in the book. Not only is his anger justified but you feel his agony and he is not a faceless killer as in the movie. The characters are not shallow or hastily written about as in the movie. It has no stupid or pointless sequels. Do yourself a favor and do not see the movie, read the book.

I'd heard of the film from 1997 before but had no idea prior to reading the book that it was an adaptation. For someone normally not into young adult fiction, I didn't know what to expect. Unfortunately I'd already guessed who was behind the note "I know what you did last summer" by roughly half way into the book. It's not very difficult when you realise there aren't very many characters besides the 4 main people! I found it quite irksome that the secret they shared was bound by a "pact" that could not be broken. Seriously? You suspect your life is in danger and you care about a pact that you constantly refer to like it is sacred somehow?

It's written in a very easy to read style with many short chapters and several with teasers for the next chapter, but nothing was thrilling about this book. I think the only point I felt any thrill was an "escape" scene. The ending sentences were a little cheesy for me - as though the author had no idea how to completely end the book. One-dimensional, quick read with no thrills. (I watched the film too which was very loosely based on the book. Cannot recommend it either unless you feel like watching some of the most popular stars of the 90s gathered together…!)

Having read this years before the film was released, I can assure anyone thinking of buying it, you won't be disappointed. Where the film relies heavily on shredding the four central characters to piles of gore, the book steadily builds on suspense, while developing the characters past high school level and cheerleading.

Almost everyone knows the general plot - four kids have an accident and choose to cover it up. But there is no mad slasher returned from the dead here, just a tragic loss, and the aftermath of their actions.

This is a far superior story, and one that I have chosen to read many times over. As with all the other novels by Lois Duncan, this stands the test of time. The physcological thrillers seemed to be a popular genre during the70s, and this is a fine example. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for something ELSE. Once you have started with this, I would also try The Eyes of Karen Connors, Stranger with My Face, Gallows Hill, Down a Dark Hall , and Summer of Fear. Again, I do not think you will be disappointed

I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER WAS AN AWESOME THRILLER! I LIKED THE BOOK BETTER THEN THE MOVIE BUT THE MOVIE IS STILL GOOD. I LIKED READING HOW JULIE, BARRY, HELEN, AND RAY WERE DEALING WITH THEIR LIVES AFTER THE HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT A YEAR AGO. I LIKED ALL OF THESE CHARACTERS AND I FELT FOR THEM. AND THE KILLER WAS A BIG SHOCK! SO IF YOU WANT TO READ A VERY SUSPENSEFUL THRILLER THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU!

I don't know about you guys, but when I think of I Know What You Did Last Summer I immediately think of (my hero) Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr in one of the best 90s slasher films produced. I think hook man, murder, and thrills and chills. I've never once thought of reading the book, which is a shame as it's actually quite good. Its age always put me off, seeing as it was first published in the 70s; bad I know, and I apologise. I need to read older books - it's a work in progress!

I Know What You Did Last Summer the book is a clever thriller, creepy in parts and not half as gory as the film of the same name. In fact, the two share very little in the way of similarities, aside from a general plotline and character names. I was actually really surprised by how different the book is, though I did enjoy it. It wasn't quite as scary as I thought it would be and I wasn't on tenterhooks while reading, though I did get a strong feeling of unease as Julie and Co. unraveled the sinister mystery.

This edition has been revised for a modern audience but, if I'm honest, that's not the impression I got. It still seemed quite old-fashioned, even though references to cell phones and scanners had been dropped into the text. For me they seemed out of place, but I can see why readers of 2011 will benefit from a more modern take on technology. It made the whole thing more believable somehow, which added to the all important realism factor.

I'd be interested in reading Lois Duncan's other books that are getting a re-release this month, as YA thrillers seem to be getting more attention these days. They're a refreshing departure from paranormal romance and dystopian futures, and I hope we'll see a lot more over the next couple of years. There's nothing like scaring yourself silly while you're reading in the house on your own. Oh, wait...
