Donna posts on 8/23/2012 5:53:14 PM I loved reading about Ruby and her struggles and ultimate success in Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra. I thought her sub-plot was a great contrast to Jane and her efforts to change her own life. Both came at the reader from different vantage points, but both were equally fascinating and inspiring.
Janet R posts on 8/22/2012 6:49:06 PM The first few times that I read Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra I was spellbound. It took subsequent readings for me to realize what it was that I was reading. It turned out that this novel is probably a turning point in my own development as a reader. I have become more discerning in my tastes, and I never want to go back to reading schlock ever again.
Esmeralda posts on 8/22/2012 6:44:52 PM I loved Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra from the moment I opened up the book and began reading. I fell in love with the characters and the locales from day one. I would be hard pressed to choose a favorite chapter, though Jane is far and away my favorite character.

Allegra posts on 8/21/2012 6:05:55 PM Since reading Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra, I have not come across a book nearly as exciting and interesting as this one. I had never read one as interesting as it beforehand either. I guess the only way I can guarantee a book of equal quality on any level would be for this author write a sequel to this story. Hope he does. Soon!
Rashida posts on 8/21/2012 5:53:27 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra is one of those books that once you pick it up, you are sore pressed to put it down again. The characters and the storylines compell the reader to keep right on reading through to the end - and I guess that is what all good books must do.
Pamela posts on 8/20/2012 6:33:09 PM My favorite scene out of Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra had to be the encounter between the pirates and the woman walking her dog. His reaction to her letting her dog relieve himself just anywhere was classic. I've never read anything like that in literature before.
Jenny posts on 8/20/2012 3:38:55 PM Loved the part in Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra when Jane returned to her room to find it over-run by tree frogs. Did anyone else see the amazing humor in that? A city girl like her having an encounter with the local wildlife was really funny to me. Being a city girl, I got freaked out, too.
Kate posts on 8/19/2012 5:34:16 PM Jane Whitely had to be one of the strongest women in literature in a similar predicament since Cross Creek by Rawlings. That was what endeared Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra to me. The author creates memorable female characters - which is something I look for in stories that I enjoy most.
Annie posts on 8/19/2012 5:30:59 PM I loved Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra. I loved the odd characters and the amazingly rich storylines. I especially loved the culture clash that occurred between the newcomers and the oldtimers, and the unwelcome yuppies. There was always a lot of humor in those....and those are the chapters I remember fondest!
Rebecca posts on 8/19/2012 5:07:33 PM I can't help but keep a positive thought each time I think back to the first time I read Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra. The book literally changed my outlook on my own life, and for that I am eternally grateful.
