Book Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo . . . Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, their lives will change forever.

One of the most anticipated books] of the year--and rightfully so. . . . It's a must-read.--Parade

Malibu: August 1983. It's the day of Nina Riva's annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over--especially as the offspring of the legendary singer Mick Riva.

The only person not looking forward to the party of the year is Nina herself, who never wanted to be the center of attention, and who has also just been very publicly abandoned by her pro tennis player husband. Oh, and maybe Hud--because it is long past time for him to confess something to the brother from whom he's been inseparable since birth.

Jay, on the other hand, is counting the minutes until nightfall, when the girl he can't stop thinking about promised she'll be there.

And Kit has a couple Read More chevron_right

   Malibu Raising
Although the book was an easy read I felt the first part of the book took too long for character development and the back story. Part 2 the story really developed and I found it very interesting.
I just finished a book that I got from the library and I am not sure what to say. Daisy Jones and the six was written by the person I was almost finished with. The writing is scattershot, jumping from character to character and introducing new ones with beachy names every other page. I am still hungry after reading the whole thing. I don't know what I just read or what motivated the characters to act the way they did.
   1st Part Phenomenal, 2nd Part…. Anticlimactic
The book was a story of family, grief, and making it through the fire. The first part of the book was so amazing that I cried until the early hours of the morning. The best parts of the book were the love story and the creation of a family. In the second part of the book, I didn't feel the same as I did in the first part, but I kept waiting to feel the same. It is a good read and I would recommend it. It would have made me feel the same.
   Hard to Review
I wanted to love this book and had high expectations after reading it. I did not. Parts were dragged and I found them cringeworthy. I wanted to love her journey, but she made dumb decisions. Especially giving the big party. I think Ms. Reid is an excellent writer and that you may love this book more than I do. I am looking forward to what she has in store.
   A Delicious Summer Read
This is a beach read, but it is also a beach read with depth. This is one of Ms. Reid's best. She understands human nature and writes about relationships that are beautiful. This book offers a glimpse of a largely unseen world peopled with the total chaos surrounding those who populate Hollywood, but also explores family ties - families both born and made. An excellent work that is worth consuming in a single sitting.
   Another Beautiful Story from TJR
TJR knows how to tell a beautiful story. It can be love or family. When the new characters were introduced, I didn't like it. It was difficult to keep them straight but in the end it helped the story. I chose 4 stars because of that. I didn't like the imagery of the party at first, but I see why they needed to paint it. I am looking forward to seeing what comes next for TJR.
   2nd half needs to be rewritten, 1st half was great!
The story in the first half of the book was written by 1 person. The second half of the book was full of unnecessary details. The author didn't know how to finish the story, so he just wrapped it up with a happy ending.
I don't want to insult someone with different taste but I just don't understand all the positive reviews for this one. The characters felt like actors rather than real people and it felt like a made-for-TV movie. Even though I liked some parts, I just couldn't wait for it to end.
   Buy a better Beach Read
Predictable plot, one-dimensional characters saved by a twist. The book was rated the most over-rated.
   Higher expectations for this book
A friend of mine recommended the book and she wanted it to continue. I didn't have the same feelings. I was prepared for the end. I liked the book, but I didn't like it. The characters in this book are a lot going on. Hated the destruction of the house. I don't like when people destroy things.
