David Grossman is successful in the publishing world, except he's not happy. Then he makes contact with Jill Black, a woman from his past - a past that's 40 years old. The "what ifs" start to germinate and their email relationship starts to take hold. Their entire relationship is based on Woodstock and what could have been.
I found Jill to be a nauseating "me, me, me" woman who I couldn't like at all. Grossman ... well, I wanted to shake him! DO something, SAY something, MAKE a decision! And I think that's why I didn't enjoy the book as well as other readers did.
The story is well told and the author most certainly can write. The book resonates because we all look back and wonder "what if" and the 60s references are a delight to those of us who lived through that time. But my less than stellar response is based on the characters. I just couldn't like them even though I wanted to.
While I understand the regret at not having been at Woodstock (I lived in NY at the time but was only 14 so obviously could not go, as it was over 200 miles away from where I lived)it simply is not worth writing a book about...
I thought MY mundane life was boring, but this book, if true, tells a much more boring life story than I have had...and I don't think my life story would be worth writing about or reading...
This book was boring, boring, boring...Although I got it for free, it was a waste of my time to read.
In these days of self publishing, I am used to reading free books that are not the greatest, but I never have run across one this boring...
It wasn't worth it for FREE and it SURE isn't worth $5.99
I could not give it five stars only because (as numerous other reviewers have pointed out) it left open too many story lines that were very important to the plot development. Without any resolution, one wonders why those story lines were even included, as they ultimately seem to be superfluous fill-in.

The plot was shallow, and the ending left you up in the air. It was an ending, obvious, to make you want to buy the sequel. It just didn't connect with my idea of a good read.Published 4 months ago by KAMO
