Susie posts on 8/29/2012 6:04:26 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra made for spectacular summer reading. I received it as a gift from a friend, and I took it along with me on vacation. Although I was unfamiliar with this author and his work, I was not disappointed one bit. I highly recommend this one to anyone looking for a good summer read, or anytime read for that matter.
Darlene posts on 8/29/2012 5:52:12 PM I thought the detail in Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra was pretty amazing as well. All the little ticks and mannerisms that I remember of the region came out in the locals and in the various subplots. It was hilarious and touching at the same time.
Reggie posts on 8/28/2012 6:14:13 PM Reading Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra was similar for me - it was like visiting with an old friend, or family member after many years apart. I am originally from the region, and this book is the first I have read that brought it all back for me. After college I migrated up north to NYC and really only returned home for reunions and funerals. My life is in NYC now, but a part of me still resides in the Carolinas...

Vanessa posts on 8/28/2012 6:01:14 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra reminded me of my first trip to North Carolina. It had been ages since I visited, but the memories all came flooding back as soon as I was halfway through the first chapter. All the scents and sounds of the region, the sleepy little towns, the semi-bustling cities, and the quirky and charming locals were right where they always were - close to me heart.
Letitia posts on 8/27/2012 6:17:07 PM The romamntic elements in Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra seemed so real and so tentative, the way they are in real life. We would like to think that life is like what we read in the traditional romance novels, but in truth, people are nervous and often will not share their feelings under ordinary circumstances...
Rosa posts on 8/27/2012 6:11:14 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra brought me back down those familiar country roads that I love so much. All an author, singer or songwriter needs to do is mention a country road and my thoughts immediately return to me childhood outside of the city...those were good times.
Constance posts on 8/25/2012 5:48:18 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra is a reminder for me of my life in NC so many years ago. I was born there, and so much of what this author writes is accurate about life there. It brought a tear to my eye when I first opened the pages and recognized the quirkiness of a place where I grew up...
Ofelia posts on 8/25/2012 5:39:08 PM It amazed me to find that this book somehow got through the sticky fingers of those in traditional publishing houses. Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra would easily have been one of those huge publishing successes had those in charge had some foresight. Maybe it worked out this way for the best. This was the book was never ruined by some editor with a heavy red pen.
Andrea posts on 8/24/2012 8:57:37 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra turned my life around. When I was at the depths of my own failures in my life, this book showed me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel like no other book or person of thing before it ever did. This book and its characters felt more real to me than anything I've ever experienced.
Lynette posts on 8/24/2012 8:53:19 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra was exactly the book I was waiting for when it came along. It helped me to see my own life in a different light, which help me solve alot of my own issues, and in this way, this book was more inspirational to me than anything else in my life has ever been.
