Editorial Reviews

Ben Grabow
Hippies author offers first-person perspective On college life in Ohio during tumultuous times Peter Jedick’s novel, Hippies, is a first person account of life at Kent State University toward the end of the decade of love, written by a man who experienced it all...From the beginning, Hippies is a quick read—playful, innocent and funny, it moves at a pace that will keep the reader engaged. So it’s hard to believe that Jedick is working his way toward a monster e
Chris Newmarker
Hippies' brings the past alive with tale of the Vietnam War A senior at Kent State in 1970, he has done a great service in bringing not just Kent State but the entire 1960's to life...The great thing about "Hippies" is not that it describes a strange and distant world but that it shows a college campus much like our own where special circumstances lead to tragic events...That is why "Hippies" is such a good book for someone seeking to learn about the recent past.
Christopher Amott
Hippie Hippie Shaken Hippies is a disarming novel about peaceful, fun loving 1960s college kids who go to anti-war rallies the way that their parents went to pep rallies...Author Peter Jedick, who attended the school at the time when the National Guard triggered one of the greatest tragedies of the love generation, keeps you in suspense right up to Hippies’ final pages...Hippies is a rich and rewarding view of the lusts and wanderlusts of a soon-to-be lost generation.
Don Delco
'Hippies' tells familiar tale In his first-ever novel, author Peter Jedick has captured what it was like to be attending college and also practicing the hippie lifestyle during the turbulent late 60s...Throughout the book, Jedick describes vividly the thoughts and feelings of a college student and how they dealt with the situations that were presented to them...It makes for an entertaining yet very realistic feeling of how a college student lived during such a wild era.

    A great book.

    I loved this book. It gave me the hippie fiction fix that I needed. Matt and his friends are trying to finish college and avoid the draft, as they embark on adventures and join anti-war rallies and smoke pot. It was well written and visual and gave me an idea of what life was like for college students back in 69-70.
