Description

While it did certainly have a surprise ending, I kind of figured it out before the end. But seriously, a talking puddle? It was such weak symbolism it makes me a bit queasy that I have to teach this book to students.

Yet as the early summer sun warms the earth, something awakens inside of Nick and he slowly opens up to those around him, hoping to make sense of the terrible tragedy. But it is a force of nature that actually begins his healing: a voice calls to him, first as the cry of a frightened, lost soul, and by summer’s end as a source of comfort and inspiration.

The lamb is a common metaphor for Jesus Christ, who is also called "The Lamb of God" in John 1:29. In the first stanza, the speaker asks the lamb who his creator is; the answer lies at the end of the poem. This poem written in rhyming couplets, although the rhyme "lamb"/"name" is only approximate by modern standards. The first and last couplet in each stanza exhibit identical rhyme, as for example the first: "Little Lamb who made thee, Dost thou know who made thee". Here we find a physical description of the lamb, seen as a pure and gentle creature

"The End of Summer" is an awesome story, handling grief and loss realistically yet strangely...after all, how many people find solace and wisdom from puddles? Yet I could picture a lonely meadow where an injured soul could sort out their thoughts and receive "advice" from nature. Don't long walks often clear our minds and help us put life into a better perspective? This story is for someone who is trying to understand life and death, love and hate, gain and loss, or for someone who is just trying to reafirm or understand their spirituality. And what a powerful message for those who are intent on destroying all that is around us - "...everthing is part of the dance...do not break the beautiful rhythm of the universe..." Thank you John Lowry Lamb for your insight and images.

I first read this book as a child only a few years after my father died. It literally changed my life. Through a fictional story I was able to re-evaluate my grief and accept my father's death in a totally new way. I lent it out to anyone who lost someone close to them and naturally- I rarely received it back. I'm on my fourth or fifth edition and have read it several times through. As an adult going to work for Hospice, I can truly attest to the fact that as a child, learning about, embracing, and understanding sadness and loss of a loved one through any means necessary (in my case it was this book)is extremely important. My specific gratitude goes out to JLL as I have never been religious, and therefore lacked the ability to find "assurance or peace" through "God." This book helped me to realize at a young age that I didn't have to look towards anything other than the cycle of life and nature for comfort and understanding. This book is a wonderful resource for Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists, "spiritual...but not religious", Wiccan, "other" etc. parents whose children have lost someone close to them.
Of course, I must add that it does not, in any way, "bash God" either, so it is also an excellent read for believers as well!

A fascinating and poetic journey into the mind of a grieving boy and into his recovery. Lamb writes in clear, pared down, masterful prose, reminding me of Stephen Crane. The boy's father killed and his mother gravely injured in a car accident, in his anguish he discovers the healing power of nature, love, and Native American spiritual guidance, all of which lead him into the sustaining light of a hopeful future. Highly recommended for all ages.

This audio book really got to me. It started out slow, with Nick, the main character trying to sort out how to deal with the death of his father in a car crash, and hearing a variety of "voices,"as he seems to wander in and out of reality. I found myself wondering where this strange beginning was going, but very quickly I was caught up in Nick's predicament. Several things take place later in the story that will break your heart. It is masterfully told by an outstanding narrator and I found myself wiping tears from my eyes on several occassions, as the story came to a close. Although the two-tape audio book is an abridgement, it is very powerful. I also like the way animals are strangely "drawn" to Nick. A real keeper...don't miss it.

I am a reader for a french publisher. I read this book some years ago and I loved it, but it was not bought by my boss. I did regret it, and I have since look for it in vain. Now I am so pleased to find it on Internet. It's one of the most heart breaking story I ever read, and I wish to share my admiration with my sons and you ! Do read it if you like poetic and realistic story. I'd like very much to let the author know much I appreciate his book. I never forget it, trough I read so many books a year. Thank you M. Lowry Lamb
