I bought this book based on the cover and the title. If you know me, and you probably don't so I'll just have to tell you anyway, you know I love books from the greatest decade of all time, the eighties. This was no exception. Actually, it was. It was pretty bad. I won't lie. BUT IT'S CALLED DEAR BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN. My friend Chelsea decided to write a letter from Bruce Springsteen to the main character, and it was great and funny and I wish it had been in the novel, but it wasn't. So the book is [...]
Read more of my reviews at : babysittinginsweetvalleysThe only reason I originally picked this up was because of the title (I'm a huge Bruce fan in case you didn't already know) it was an added bonus that the plot line was also pretty appealing and that it just so happened to be YA from the 80's. I squealed even more when I realised it was entirely written in letter format - which is one of the best formats I think. What I ended up with was a surprise But certainly a pleasant one at that. It had [...]
Dear Bruce Springsteen, by Kevin Major, is a poignant look at the average teenage boy's life in Middle America in the mid 1980's.Terry keeps a journal of letters he wrote to the Boss, a certain Mr. Bruce Springsteen. Terry's dad left his family about six months prior to the story. He now lives with his little sister [who put pictures of the Boss up next to the glittery Duran Duran:], and his mother, who works as a nurse to bring in some income. Terry gets along with his mother until one day she [...]
This one sits at a solid 3.5 stars for me. To begin with, I thought, 'Well, we've all written letters to our favourite celebrity'. Hell, IknowI wrote to Bryan Adams when I was fourteen (extra half-point for the mention in the last three pages, btw). Then we veered into something that started reading like a bit of weird erotomania - how the protagonist knows more about Bruce than anyone else; the sad ramblings of a desperate teenager whose life is falling apart. Still, I kept an open mind. I love [...]
This is one of those odd books from my childhood that I still think about on occasion. While I don't remember it as being the best book ever, I do remember the main character's journey toward becoming a good person. I remember how the letters to the Boss worked as a journal for the boy, giving him someone to share his inner self with. One of the other reviews already mentions that the boy never gets a letter from Bruce. To be honest, that's OK. The Bruce he was writing to was a figment of his im [...]
Despite some obvious similarities to Dear Mr. Henshaw with the letter/diary format and the same story about a boy struggling to make sense of his parent's divorce by writing to a famous celebrity, this was a surprisingly well-written story. I've never been a huge fan of Springsteen but he's a good literary choice as the main character's inspiration and I found myself rooting for this young man who loves music and is just starting to notice girls. Since it was published in 1987, the story is clea [...]
Más bien un 2.5.Una novela que recuerdo leí después de muchos años de serme regalada y la verdad es que me sorprendió ( me la imaginaba peor). Básicamente trata la época difícil de un adolescente que tiene que enfrentarse a nuevos cambios en su vida ( cambio de escuela, primer amor, divorcio de sus padres). El famoso músico es la excusa para explicarnos sus pensamientos y problemas, a través de su correspondencia con éste.Narrado de manera sencilla, concisa y realista, un libro efecti [...]
