The Boys of Summer summary ✓ 8 Hey agree to never speak of it againBut darkness returns to Wichita Falls twenty five years later and the boys now men are forced to reunite and confront the wounds from their past When their memories of that childhood summer refuse to align with reality the friends embark upon a search for truth that will threaten their lives and transform their understanding of each other and the world itself forever.

The Boys of Summer summary ✓ 8 T in a way he can’t uite grasp For Todd it's a struggle to separate fact from fiction as he battles lingering hallucinations from his long sleepThe new friends Todd makes in 1983 are fascinated with his experience and become mesmerized by his strange relationship with the world Together the five boys come of age during a dark fiery summer where they find first love betrayal and a secret so terrible t. I was attracted to this book because of the alleged similarities it shared to Stephen King s IT I was disappointed to discover that these similarities only existed in the premise Otherwise this is a far inferior novel The first part April 10 1979 and the last part July 4 1983 were interesting Perhaps if there was of a focus on the lives of Todd and his friends as children author Richard Cox might have a compelling novel Unfortunately the intervening pages deal with a very artificial story one that I feel as if I have read hundreds of times before All the characters are about as contrived as can be and the action unfolds in a predictable uninteresting fashion Even the sentences feel as though they were constructed by an author bot putting words together in the most arbitrary and bland way to get the point across And the author is so smug about his writing Ugh He has put in all these little meta moments nods to the fact that these characters were potentially aware of the fact that they existed in a novel I feel like he thought this was cute and maybe if it was used sparingly it would ve been a nice little inside joke between the characters and the reader Instead it s just a slap in the face I know I m reading a novel and I know this because the characters and the story never fully took me in All this to say that two stars might be a generous handout for this book
