The Last Book Party Reviews

  • Carol (Bookaria)
    Absolutely mesmerizing and engaging. I loved every page of this novel.This book made me yearn for a place I've never been to, and a time in the publishing industry I did not live (I was alive at the time, just not there, you know what I mean). It's emotional and easy to read, the pages flew by. I di...

    As a serious book lover with endless nostalgia for the 1980s, I completely lost myself in this beautiful book. It's a joy!...

    This was a very light and easy read for me and so nice to enjoy a book like this between so many thrillers and heavy dramas. Twenty five year old Eve Rosen wants to be a writer but lacks confidence, inspiration, and the hard work that can be necessary to write a book. She does work in a publishing h...

    I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars."But how could you live and have no story to tell?"This quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky is the epigraph to Karen Dukess' terrific debut novel, The Last Book Party , and it couldn't be more appropriate.

    As I was reading this book I continually had the feeling that “I’ve read this before, heard this before”. I think this would be a good beach read but there is nothing really fresh or new here. I don’t even think I would call it a coming of age book because the young woman is out ...
  • Book of Secrets°ღ
    3.5 Stars Loved that this novel was about books, writing, and publishing, set in the late 1980s. During a summer on Cape Cod, 25-year old Eve Rosen takes a job as research assistant to New Yorker writer Henry Grey. Eve's view of herself & her life's ambitions change when she becomes wrapped up in H...
  • Olivia (Stories For Coffee)
    Eve Rosen is a terrible person. What I thought would be a story celebrating a love for storytelling while showcasing the grittier side of publishing and what it takes to create stories turned out to be a terrible coming-of-age story full of garbage, selfish characters and a plot that left me bored a...
