I enjoyed this book maybe because I am the age of the characters. We really don't get to know them all very well, just superficially, but isn't that how we know many of the people from high school? Each of these attend their 40th class reunion with ideas of who or what they are going to accomplish. Of course, that never happens but many of our favorite characters do end up on their way to a happy ending. ( )

not my favorite Berg novel. The characters were either boring, unfeeling & self-centered, or not there enough to save the novel for me. All the other novels by this author resonated with me, and stayed with me for days. Now, I was forced to leave the novel unfinished, as I could not stand the childish, self-centered way one of the min characters is acting, which is too much like someone I actually know. If my own experiences have tainted my reading of this book, I am sorry... but from the other reviews, I don't think that's the case.
I can understand where a woman would be, mentally and physically, when her last big reunion comes along. I just couldn't go to mine, as I has been recuperating from almost dying from sepsis. My old BFF went, and took pics though, and it was nice.. but not the same as being there. Who knows, maybe I just don't want any other reunions to be ruined by the flavor of this one? IDK.

~2/3rds done, and may not finish it. sorry Berg... I tried. ( )

I enjoy her insights and sense of humor and would have rated it higher except for some crassness. ( )

2.5 I'm a Berg fan but this was a disappointment. The character's actions and dialogue were juvenile and didn't ring true. ( )

The Last Time I Saw You by Elizabeth Berg
Audio narrated by the author

Realistic and sometimes sentimental portrait of a group of adults returning to their hometown for their 40th--and last--class reunion. Interesting and insightful look at how we tend to revert back to who we were "back then" when we regroup with old friends, and how no matter our age, we can still easily relate to our inner teenager with our different struggles, insecurities, humiliations, disappointments, dreams, and moments of success.

I really liked this story and the reminder that we all have our challenges to face--even those who seemingly have always had it all. The class beauty may have always felt lonely; the football star has always been successful with the ladies but struggles with finding true connections with people and finds out too late when he loses what is most important to him; and the reminder that as we age, there is the great equalizer of battling health crises. Those who were considered outcasts seem to end up the happiest because they have learned how to appreciate the simple things, focus on what is really important to them, and let the rest go. ( )

High school, those are your prime suffering years.
You don't get better suffering than that.

Dorothy Shauman Ledbetter Shauman is standing in front of the bathroom mirror in her black half-slip and black push-up bra, auditioning a look. Her fortieth high school reunion, the last one, is one week away, and she’s trying to decide whether or not to draw a beauty mark above her lip for the occasion. It wouldn’t be entirely false; she does have a mole there, but it’s faint, hard to see. She just wants to enhance what already exists, nothing wrong with that; it’s de rigueur if you’re a woman, and it’s becoming more common in men, too. Wrong as that is. Dorothy would never have anything to do with a man who wore makeup or dyed his hair or carried a purse or wore support hose or cried or did any of those womanly things men are appropriating as though it’s their god-given right. No. She prefers an all-American, red-blooded male who is not a jerk. They’re hard to find, but she holds out hope that she will have some sort of meaningful relationship with one before she’s six feet under.
