I read a number of books each and every month. It's what I do. I write some short reviews for a newsletter we have at the hospital here in New Jersey, and let me tell you, there has not been a book that got as much buzz with us as Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra did. It was like reading Norma Rae or something, the way we all responded to the positivity! I haven't found anything like it since.

I think others may disagree, but I really do not believe I am going out on a limb by saying that I believe that Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra is easily the best book I've read in the last three years. I'm only into the third chapter, but already I see and feel an emotion in this writing that I haven't seen in a long time.

Re: Still Waiting For The Sun, I think that just like what real estate and business people tell you, everything always comes down to location, location, location. And this is very true in this novel. I don't think the characters ever could have dealt with their problems if they had never relocated to Eatonville. So it didn't matter if you were a hobo, or a pirate, or someone from New York or Pennsylvania. If there was an issue you were dealing with, and you were meant to be in Eatonville, or Seneca Hollow or St Helena's Island to solve it, you eventually would end up there. And together the combination created a magical story.

Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra is one of those books that stays with you long after you are done reading it. I began reading it with some trepidation, as this genre really never was of interest to me. But once I sat down and started reading it, I grew more and more engrossed with the marvelous characters, the amazing settings, and the superb storylines. There are not very many books out there like this one, and I am really glad I had the fortitude to take the chance with this one.

In publishing school, one of the first things they teach you is to never write or publish a book relating to the weather. Robert Segarra wrote the novel Still Waiting For The Sun and seems to break all the rules, because his book is not only rich in detail and not at all boring, but it is an amazing chronicle of Americana. Between the amazingly rich and quirky characters and the intricate and realistic storylines that all seem to find a home in the same place in North Carolina, this project is non-stop fascinating and inspiring. Any reader will not regret investing their time in absorbing this one.

Still Waiting For The Sun by author Robert Segarra turned my head around regarding this story genre. I had always thought it insipid and cumbersome, and sort of like a grown up fairytale style of writing, but the positivity I found within those pages changed my mind. I love these characters and I would revel in reading a sequel or other project by this same author.

I simply loved this book from beginning to end. Reading Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra was almost a spiritual experience - it just touched me on a deeper level, and that never happens for me with contemporary writers...

What a brilliant novel Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra has become. The themes and sub-story plots have become inspirational to everyone who has read this book and that is not an easy thing to do. It takes alot to move a mountain, and this author has done it with seeming ease.

Jane Whitley's character in Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra was for me like a modern day female Tom Sawyer, traveling down the east coast, looking for adventure and a new life, and finding more adventure than she bargained for, but in the end coming out the better for it. I just loved this book from begining to end.

There is something alluring about a country road, and the roads in Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra, leading deep into the lives of residents of the idyllic town of Eatonville was especially fun to travel. I highly recommend this very excellent novel.
