Success follows you wherever you go After graduation from UCLA your MBA from Stanford deftly prepares you for the exploding high tech and ventu Things I liked about the book I liked the premise that this man sees a woman and writes her a letter every year on the same dayI liked the man writing the letters he was normal with flaws and redeeming ualities at the same timeThings I did not like about the bookWhile I usually like references to historically significant events in this book it felt like it was trying too hard He was writing about them while living through them but this was written much nostalgic and sounded like reminiscing It was like Forrest Gump only worse because Forrest never really understood the historical significance of what he was doing yet this guy seemed to always know that this or that event was going to be BIG Not terribly believableAt the end I didn't think it was sweet that Tess waited until she knew he was dying to get in touch I thought it was dumb She liked getting these letters often enough to keep making sure her address what changed but never ever tried to talk to him Stupid not romantic Stupid And himwhy would you keep writing after that many years with no response obsessed much?Anyway I would definitely read another book by Stu but this will not be on my list of favorites

Re capital worlds of Silicon Valley Marriage family and a financial fortune follow but with a huge price Your journey under the backdrop of the Baby Boomer generation spans than four decades and how you deal with unlimited opportunities formidable challenges horrific tragedy character flaws and addiction define your compelling life Do you have a what if uestion that haunts you? August 9th breaks all preconceived ideas of how a love story should be told Once you start reading you won't want to stop and after you finish the last page the story will continue to echo within you You'll talk debate and personalize August 9th because almost everyone can relate to the fundamental theme A first time novelist Stu Schreiber reveals an understanding of life and love that is extraordinary and comparisons between Nicholas Sparks' first novel The Notebook and August 9th are inevitabl OK so this is not my typical type of read I gave it a shot and I'm glad I did While I wasn't sure in the first few chapters the story and the characters did eventually reel me in and keep me hooked I don't ever leave books unfinished it kills me so I knew I'd finish it but I honestly wasn't expecting to enjoy it as much as I did Again this is only BC its not my usual reading choice There's so much in here to identify with so many of the nuances of life good and bad are in this book and I think anyone reading it could find something they've faced in life before I think that's part of what make this such a good read Also there's this strange relationship with Dan and Tess He writes to her at first it seems born out of some kind of infatuation but then as the years go by these letters become like his conscience I feel like they develop as a way for Dan to reflect and less about hoping Tess contacts him What at first seems a little creepy to me anyway turns into something really essential for Dan and something uite touching The end of which I won't say much is just amazing Its sweet and tearful and justwelljust read the book and you'll see It is a relatively uick read I think 3 4 hours if I remember correctly And regardless of preferred type of book I think anyone would enjoy this one Me I like sci fi and thrillers mysteries some fantasy this fits none of those genres but I still found this to be one of the better reads I've found purely by accident
