Last Summer Free download Á 108 Rory Buchanan has it all looks talent charisma an all around good guy he's the centre of every party and a loving father and husband Then one summer's afternoon tragedy strikes and those who are closest to him struggle to come to terms with their loss Friendships are strained marriages falter and loyalties are tested in a gripping and brilliantly crafted novel of loss grief and desireTold. Review for the Australian Women Writers Challenge 2012Rory is a larger then life character and prominent figure in his circle of friends Whether it s organising special eventstraining for the cricket club or get togethers and parties for his friends he was the key to keeping this tight nit group together But Rory sudden death put a strain on the remaining friendship and marriages and with some it has prompted them re evaluate their own livesThis is the first book I ve read of Kylie Ladd and I think she did a marvellous job in capturing the emotional struggle of 9 individuals and how they cope with grief from losing a loved one It s a fascinating insight on the different ways we mourn someone and how we look at life going forward some were silent and withdrawn some were angry and others took it upon themselves to make some life changing experience without either consulting or considering their partners I noticed since Rory s death that most of them kept their grief to themselves and rarely spoken openly to each other or their spouses about how they are feeling It s really hard on marriages and friendships when you re shut down or excluded like this and I can see the real importance of communication in these situationsThis is also a story of ordinary people with ordinary lives and how they juggle work children family life and marriage They are real and believable situations and as a reader will find many situations in the book part of your everyday life However I felt the ending left a lot of issues unresolved and there were too characters and story lines which seemed a bit too busy for me But generally it was a pleasant and uick read

Since reading Kylie Ladd s debut novel After the Fall I ve been anxiously awaiting her next release When I finally got my hands on Last Summer I was ecstatic and relieved when from the first line I knew it wasn t going to be a decision I regrettedThey were making love when Rory died p1With the sudden death of Rory Buchanan his devastated family and closest friends are faced with the uncomfortable truth of their mortality and themselves Their grief creates fractures in their relationships as they reassess their priorities and struggle to deal with their loss Unflinchingly honest Last Summer has a deceptively spare style that is nevertheless loaded with subtext This novel is not only about death but life and how we go on living despite a tragic loss It is a universal theme a common human experience that we all confront at some time and this novel will make you thinkLast Summer unfolds from the perspective of nine characters each of whom have been affected in different ways by the tragedy One of the things I find most impressive about Ladd s writing is that her characters live within the pages of her novel They eat shower bicker make love go to work arrange childcare these ordinary events contrasting the tedium of living against their complex emotional lives It is often said that no two people react to an event in the same way yet we many of us consider that there is a right and wrong way particularly where grieving is concerned Last Summer perfectly illustrates the individuality of response to crisis and forces the reader to examine their own attitudeLadd s background in psychology no doubt assists her in creating well rounded authentic characters who are both familiar and extraordinary The ordinary group of middle class suburbanites in Last Summer are as emotionally complicated as any individual you knowOne of the reasons that this novel resonates so strongly with me is because there are some eerie parallels to my own experiences The death of a friend from an aggressive cancer barely 2 months after her diagnosis in my late twenties had a similar impact to that which Ladd writes about on our group of friends In the aftermath of her passing a couple split another nearly destroyed her marriage by having an affair three of the eight women in our circle changed careers we had all worked together at the time two couples moved away The loss changed us all as we were forced to confront our mortality and examine our life choicesEntertaining and compelling Last Summer is the best contemporary fiction novel I have read all year with it s insightful examination of life and death in the Australian suburbs I m already greedy for Kylie Ladd s next book
