I want to say thank you to Seth for this precious gift. It's life altering.
I'm not going to make the comment of "this book isn't for everyone" because I believe that to be far from the truth. If you have a beating heart and a pair of eyes, READ IT. We are all here on this earth and it's up to us how we spend that time. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from this experience. THIS is what reading is (or should be) about. THIS is the experience I wish I could have every time, but I am grateful to have had it this time around. It's what hopes and dreams are made of. I have an overwhelming sense of gratefulness and for the first time in a long time, I feel like I am going to be OKAY. My heart and my soul have been captured and wrapped up in a cloak of comfort, and it's the greatest feeling. This story is the definition of love, brilliance, and true beauty.
Dear Seth King,
Thank you. For this book. For writing boldly and without reservation. For your bravery in doing something different and heartbreaking and hopeful and powerful. For sharing this piece of yourself and your story with us.
Thank you for giving me Summer. And Cooper. For keeping them true to who they were- a bit broken but in the most beautiful way. For giving them joy and purpose despite the pain. For letting them love- fears, faults and all. For giving them a love that transcended time and life and even death.
Thank you for using your words for good. They moved me to tears more than I want to admit. They changed me. They broke me down and healed something in me that I didn't even know was broken. Thank you for making me look up and smile (which for someone in NYC is a big feat). For making me want to be a better version of myself, the best version of myself. There is no thank you big enough for that.
Please, I am begging you as a reader, a lover of the written word to pick up this book. It's message is one everybody needs to experience and feel. I am writing this review with tears in my eyes (happy, heartfelt tears). Invincible Summer will give you more than one OMG moment and hopefully, like it did for me, it will bring some peace to your soul. I could rattle on and on and on but I won't. Seth King delivered a winner or epic proportions. This book is, hands down, one of the best I have ever read. Just read it and bask in the beautiful, wonderful power of love.
I felt like I was taken on a journey through Seth King's mind on how he views the world. All the things he thinks should happen, he explains through Summer. Unfortunately, it came across very preachy at times (like the fact that he doesn't like hipsters who write in coffee shops. he mentions it 3 times). Other times, it was just all over the place. I chalked that up to where the story was being told from (you'll have to read it to understand).
You know that person that is always shoving down your throat a particular idea? That was this novel, to me. There were a lot of great lines, but when put together it felt slightly forced. I can't say that I wish there was more substance, because there was a lot to digest in 'Invincible Summer'. I just wish it felt more genuine.
I do need to say that I loved 'The Summer Remains'. That novel is one that will stay with me for a long time. My daughter found my paperback and asked if she could read it. Although, I feel she may be too young right now, in a few years I'll pass that paperback on to her.
Honestly? I'm in the minority, if you read the reviews. If you loved The Summer Remains, I'd say to give Invincible Summer a chance.
I thought that I was prepared for this book. I thought I knew the journey we were about to embark on. We would check in with Cooper and his broken heart and then follow him as he mends it. A simple, beautiful love story. Boy was I wrong! Don't misunderstand me - you still check in on Cooper in all his beautiful brokenness, you still get a love story - but the journey there is unlike anything you have read before.
Seth King's story, his words and thoughts blew me out of the water. Where TSR touched me in a way no other book has and likely ever will because of my similarities to Summer, Invincible Summer struck a whole different chord. As the book deals with lessons on life, death and ultimately love I couldn't help but think about how those lessons apply to my own life. As I have had more than a couple close calls with death and fight each and every day to survive - life and love is something I hold as very precious to me. But it has always been more of an abstract concept in my head and not one I tend to verbalize too often.Read more ›
