In a book review published on Good Reads the reviewer said,
"Anton Myrer's beloved, bestselling novel of America's World War II generation is as powerful now as it was upon its publication. An immediate classic, it tells the story of five Harvard men, the women they loved — and the elegant car that came to symbolize their romantic youth. It is also the story of their coming-of-age in the dark days of World War II, and of their unshakable loyalty to a lost dream of Camelot, of grace and style, in the decades that followed. The Last Convertible is a gripping tribute to a way of living that immortalized the "Greatest Generation" ."When you read it, and you really should, you will find that you know these people. Crystabel is the girl everyone's husband loves. There is a beautiful blond self centered and selfish young man that Crystabel loved beyond reason. The narrator and "keeper of the flame" in the group, George Virdon, is the guy every girl would have been grateful to have married. He is solid, steady and deliberate. His wife, Nan, is frustrating and unpredictable. The convertible is the object that represents their youth, innocence and lifestyle during the coming of age time in their lives. Myrer tells the story that spans over 30 years in such a way that you will be swept away. It is available at Amazon, on Google Book and at Abe Books...just find it and read it. You won't regret the choice!
