    • I have read and enjoyed most of Mark Allan gunnells books. This one is a quit disturbing coming of age novella told in flashback form. Other than just being a good story this novella also shows that Mark is growing as a writer, maybe it is just because it is a much darker more serious story than most but the writing seemed better.


    • Touching, harrowing, and real, this trip down memory lane or up nightmare alley, is well worth making. Gunnells captures childhood and all its anxieties with grace and crafts a spellbinding story that is as heartrending as it is terrifying. Highly recommended.


    • Beginning in the summer of 1983, The Summer of Winters tells the story of an unlikely individual whom many can identify with. At only eleven, Mike Gunthrie exists in a state where life is better left in fantasy than to the arduous wasteland of reality. Ridiculed by his peers, he has no friends. Most of his time is spent in his backyard, playing games or making others up. He reads when he’s inside. His mother works constantly after being abandoned by their father. They eat leftovers religiously [...]


    • The Summer of Winters ist eine Coming-of-Age Geschichte und eine Kriminalerzählung. Der Schriftsteller Mike Guthrie kehrt mit seinem Freund zum Klassentreffen in die Kleinstadt, in der er aufgewachsen ist, zurück. Beim Besuch seines früheren Zuhauses werden Erinnerungen wach, die er jahrelang in sich begraben hatte und über die er bisher nie mit jemandem gesprochen hat.1983 ist Mike Guthrie elf Jahre alt, trägt eine Brille mit dicken Gläsern und hat keine Freunde.

    • Readers of this blog will know that I am a very enthusiastic fan of Mark Allan Gunnells. Ever since he came out with Asylum, his awesomely original take on the zombie apocalypse, I have been addicted to this man's writing. I know that anytime I open a Mark Allan Gunnells book that I am in for a great story with memorable characters and powerful storytelling. And The Summer of Winters is no exception.Told in flashback, it is the story of Mike Guthrie during the summer of 1983. He is eleven, a scr [...]


    • I've read most of Mark's work and liked them all. However, this book shows his maturity as a writer. This is the best of what he's written in the last few years. The only reservations I have is a couple of typos and I felt the ending was rushed, for me. The story was very good but I did see the end coming, and maybe that's what he intended.This review is not to take away from the work. I wholly recommend anyone wanting to read a 'coming of age' story, pick this one up. I can hardly wait for his [...]


    • I started this book earlier this afternoon and devoured It! This was my first time reading Mark A. Gunnells, but certainly not my last. I really enjoyed this coming-of-age tale, with one small quibblee "whodunit" of the mystery was revealed too soon.Greg


    • I'm gonna make this short and sweet. If you love coming of age tales purchase this book now! I always compare books like this to Boy's Life and The Body. Summer of Winters makes the grade 100%. Nostalgic,thrilling and heartbreaking, as you can tell I loved it.


    • This was a great read - very entertaining and succinctly told murder mystery and coming of age story all in one. Well-developed and likeable characters. I am looking forward to reading more from Mark Allan Gunnells.
