Praise for Summer of '69:―-
"Hilderbrand's characters are utterly convincing and immediately draw us into their problems, from petty to grave...To use the parlance of the period, a highly relevant retrospective."

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I also did not appreciate the lengthy and not necessary to the plot fake Kavanaugh hearing virtue signalling portion of the book.
Men who behave the way they do in this book should not have their weaknesses shown as sympathetic, but just pathetic.
I just am not sure what this book was trying to show about relationships.
Please don't waste your money.
Maybe my expectations were too high?
So, only four stars. In the book, in one October, a tragic thing happens. Many pages later, Mallory implies that it happened just after Christmas. Confused, I double back, re-read, and confirm: the story does say it happened in October. Then, many more pages (and months) later, Mallory says that "this will be my first Christmas without..." .But it wasn't, because according to the story, the tragedy occurred in October, and it's now August. She had already had one Christmas "without".
It's a little thing, but I absolutely cannot stand stupid mistakes like this in a book. First, I've paid decent money for it. Two, the author, proofreader(s), editor, etc have been paid handsomely to do their jobs. Three, I would imagine many others have read the book before going to press. How does no one catch these mistakes? Four, it literally was so confusing that I thought I missed some important part of the story, so ill turning back and flipping around the pages, making myself nuts trying to figure out where I'm at in these "28 summers".
I will reiterate: this book is amazing, probably one of the best I've read. Also, I understand everyone is human, and humans makes mistakes. But there should be more than enough people involved in the making of a book to catch mistakes that interrupt the flow of a story. If they don't catch mistakes, they're not doing their job.
The politics that enter into the plot are unbearable to me: It seems all too plausible that the very wealthy Bayer Burkhart "dabbles in politics" but his admission "I pull the puppet strings" on p.145 just put me on notice that yes, at some point he will. I don't like dark money in real life politics -- I most emphatically don't want it in my summer fiction.

Mallory's brother Cooper provides a well drawn foil for her enduring 28 year relationship with Jake - he is married four or five times within those three decades.
I did find it odd that the mean girl characters - Ursula and Leland - were allowed to thrive while poor Linc is left without his mother or grandparents at the age of 18.
I liked the 'what we are talking about' sections at the start of each paragraph - although strangely Trump's name is absent, perhaps a conscious decision.
Looking forward to Erin's second novel of 2020, where she tackles the impact of a hurricane on the Caribbean island of St John.
