      Thank heavens for the recognition of Peter Cameron as a major novelist. Has this taken over 20 years? This wonderful book, Leap Year, is a snapshot of the late 80's, most definitely rooted in that time. Books set in NY hold a special appeal -- with the limitless combination of personalities, how they intersect and ensnarl. The City acts not so much as a backdrop as a character. Each character is vibrantly brought to life, with snatches of laugh out loud humor. ("[She:] knew better than to fall a [...]

      I loved it! And the reason I gave it four stars is that it's hard to find a book that is funny and smart. The atmosphere of the time (the book takes place in 1988) is so well captured, that I laughed out loud in many places remembering that time period. It has a long list of featured characters, so you have to keep remembered who is who, and how they are related (in a Rube Goldberg sort of mixed-up way), but the fun is delicious, the plot fairly preposterous, but a really good break from dysfunc [...]

      Very readableThe book is well written. But at times I wondered where it was headed. There are some rather bizarre scenes, but eventually most of the loose ends are tied together.

    • Patrick Schultheis says:

      An easy read —- light, relatively insubstantial satire. Decent characters, decent plot, decent prose.

    • Lilibet says:

      Can't get enough of this writer's work. Enjoying every book I track down and read!

    • Holly says:

      1988 was a leap year - there were 366 days, and in Cameron's "Leap Year," everything was just a little strange. It's an election year (George W Bush vs Dukakis). The Soviet Union withdraws from Afghanistan. The internet is making strides. There are multiple plane crashes. This is the backdrop for Cameron's hilarious novel wherein a group of friends tries to find love, happiness, fulfillment, meaning in Manhattan.I was reminded of Amanda Filipacchi's excellent works, but this is a little more und [...]

      I seem to remember that this guy went to Hamilton C. maybe when it was Kirkland. Anyway, I read to book a long time ago but I remember the characters (sketchily) but I always remember the way they interacted. The writing (his writing in general) has always seemed to me honest, unironic and unadorned. Which I appreciate. After reading all the Dave Eggers, Michael Chabon, Jonathan Franzen, etc (vomit noise). Self-awareness and irony only go so far now. And that's not very far actually. Tell a stor [...]

    • DoctorM says:

      Darkly funny comedy-of-manners set in that odd era where the Eighties were yielding to whatever new set of social markers might be found in the Nineties. "Leap Year" can be a bit full of Manhattan in-jokes, but even when Cameron is aiming at obvious targets (the art world, disaffected yuppies, ferally-ambitious twentysomethings on both the UES and LES) he's witty and intelligentd has unexpected sympathy for his characters. Cameron is a writer who's worth your time. Start with "Leap Year" and exp [...]

      I really liked Peter Cameron's "Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You" so I decided to read another book by him. Though the characters in this novel were middle-aged(much older than me), I was able to relate to them and enjoying reading about their antics. This book has an interesting combination of relationships, love, dating, and murder.

    • Nicholas says:

      This is one of my all-time favorite novels. It's funny and sweet and, as ridiculous as this sounds, just makes me believe in the goodness of human beings. I think Peter Cameron is pretty wonderful. I have probably read it about 5 or 6 times. I return to it again and again. And the last 10 pages always make me cry, but in a good way.

    • Tina says:

      This book was slightly entertaining, in that I wondered how all of the characters' storylines would play out, but it felt a lot like a beach/ebook read to me. There wasn't much more than what was on the surface of this book.

    • Zéro Janvier says:

      Un roman plaisant à lire, dont l'action se déroule à la fin des années 80. J'ai souvent pensé aux Chroniques de San Francisco d'Armistead Maupin en le lisant : c'est un compliment !

    • Richard Jespers says:

      Cameron seems to toss this one off for fun like one of Maupin’s books. Seems superficial unlike his other work.

    • Thomas says:

      I loved Coral Glynn and really liked Andorra. Thought The Weekend was good. But this one was pretty underwhelming, dated, and amateurish.

    • Carla says:

      Totally charming, fast-paced and entertaining-- a natural writer.

    • Christine says:

      It's seldom I don't finish a bookI didn't finish this one.

    • Callie says:

      An interesting story with lots of strange, unexpected events. I enjoyed it.
