Someday Jennifer Summary Ñ 108 And not something to be chased Back to when his worst problem was which pair of acid washed jeans to wear; to when the perfect girl sat next to him in English class Back to 1986Fired up by his new mission Peter packs up his life turns off his cellphone and moves back into his teenage bedroom He lets his hair grow long stuffs himself into those same acid washed jeans and resolutely ignores everything about the world that didn’t exist in the mid eighties Throwing himsel. As I write this review I ve got a soundtrack of 80s music playing softly in the background at the moment it s Live to Tell by Madonna I normally reuire near uiet to write but I m hoping the music will offer some inspiration as I think back to my experience reading Someday Jennifer by Risto Pakarinen I ve spoken about this perk before sometimes book publicists will include a little gift or item to help market their book and this time I received a curated collection of music that corresponds with the chapter names in the book all on a USB key housed in a vintage cassette tape holder How could I refuse this blast from the pastNostalgia is the main theme of this book and for those who lived through the 80s and remember it this story will certainly bring back memories Not just the chapter titles but the references to movies fashion and technology all serve to transport the reader and the protagonist Peter He s in his 40 s with a failing career and no romantic partners on the horizon but jolted out of this stagnant loop when he realizes how much happier he was in the 80s when he was a teenager In an effort to find his way back to that beloved time in his life he moves back home ditches his modern technology and embarks on a journey to find Jennifer the girl that got away Through some convoluted reasoning he also decides to rescue his small town movie theater from demolition fixing it up for a grand opening and showing of his favourite movie Back to the FutureNot surprisingly there is some serious suspension of disbelief reuired to enjoy this story don t dig too far into Peter s motivations circumstances or assumptions because there isn t much justification for any of them However as a simple feel good read this book does the trick There is a love story woven throughout and even though Peter s actions are supposedly motivated by reconnecting with Jennifer it uickly becomes clear that this book is a coming of age story for late bloomers The romance that eventually appears is of an after thought and a fairly obvious plot twistMy best part of this book was Peter s voice told in a first person perspective we re treated to a few flashbacks which served as consistent sources of laugh out loud humour One of my favourite lines describes a party held in a classroom after hours condoned by parents as a reward for student efforts The student council had arranged for us to have the second floor physics classroom to ourselveslots of chips soda and popcorn Someone s mom had insisted on being sensible and a lone salad sat at the edge unloved p 61 of ARCEven though this uote doesn t involve any kind of cultural touchstones it was phrases like this that truly brought my back to my childhood which this book succeeded at Even if you weren t alive in the 80s reading this story will remind you of the rose coloured glasses most of us recall our younger years through which considering our present day circumstances hello day 40 of uarantine is a welcome respite and fantasy I didn t find this read particularly memorable or impressive but I did enjoy it and was thoroughly entertained by Peter s time travels which for many is as good a reason as any to pick up a particular bookTo read the rest of my reviews please visit my blog follow me on social mediaFacebook
