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…!)
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 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...
