Robert Segarra Message Board

Rhonda posts on 9/19/2012 5:59:02 PM One of the most charming and amazing books I have ever read is Still Waiting By The Sun by Robert Segarra. Right off the bat there was this remarkable sweet story luring me into to the mix with its innocence and humor. And along the way it managed to teach me a little bit about myself. We all struggle to find our way in this world. Sometimes we get a little help in the oddest of places if we look for them -
Yvette posts on 9/18/2012 5:59:41 PM Yes, Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra is indeed a very spiritual and inspirational book. It actually touches the reader on many layers. I also fell in love with this writers other works, such as the poetry. But this story stands alone as his "Stairway to Heaven" masterpiece - so far, anyway.
Nancy posts on 9/18/2012 5:55:02 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra is the best kept secret in publishing. I have been a huge fan of Robert Segarra ever since I first read his science fiction novel about the meteor hitting the earth. It is a total departure from this one which seems so grounded in spirituality and personal growth, but in truth, maybe the message is the same in both, Hope, but just presented in a different way...

Gladys posts on 9/17/2012 5:59:27 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra has to be one of the best books that I have read in a decade. For far too long I have been settling on what is out there, and it is clear that the major publishers are not in tune with what readers want by way of content, because they are not publishing anything that we want to read. I see tons of vampire novels and werewolf romances - for kids - and I do not see kids buying them. All kids today want to do is play computer games and do weird things on social media. Nobody is reading today anymore. That's the problem with the publishing industry in this country....
Elena posts on 9/17/2012 5:48:55 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra should be required reading in universities and colleges, and perhaps even in high schools. The same way that I read Willa Cather's books, and Carson McCullers' novels, this book, with its richness of characterization and excellent and thought provoking plotlines should be mandatory. We don't really have any contemporary writers on any lists in America at present, and I think it's a shame. It's probably because we do not have very many good writers today, but we do have a few. They are out there. We just have to look harder today.

Julia posts on 9/16/2012 4:42:27 PM Believe it or not, I totally expected to not like this novel when it was first given to me. I had never heard of the author and was not familiar with his work. But once I started reading Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra and decided to give the book a chance, I more than pleasantly surprised. I think this is a remarkable book. It is unlike anything I have ever read. I really don't even know how to categorize it, except to say that it is excellent!
Nanda posts on 9/16/2012 3:42:51 PM The quality of Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra, from the standpoint of the writing and the characterization is peerless in my opinion among the latest generation of young writers. I don't go in for vampire stories or werewolf romances, and those who write mainstream lit seem to be writing for themselves. This book was a breath of extremely fresh air!
Anita posts on 9/15/2012 5:36:33 PM Forget about 50 Shades Of Lonely, I love Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra, and unlike the lopsided novel for single older women, Still Waiting For The Sun is a happy, uplifting book for all ages, and all genders.
Kathryn posts on 9/15/2012 5:25:40 PM Still Waiting For The Sun by Robert Segarra was for me a return to my life as a child in the area. It was as if I were watching all the grownups doing their thing all over again, but this time on paper, instead of reality. All of the little subtle nuances were there - enough to bring back all the things I knew of the region!
