I loved listening to Cynthia Nixon narrate this book. I found the book quite compelling and though the story was far fetched at times, there are real topics that need to be written about like bullying in a school setting. As a mother, I would be moved to do some of the things the main character had and needed to do. I gained a lot listening to this book. Thumbs up!
First of all, I rarely offer any feedback but often rely on it to purchase books. I have to tell anyone who is thinking of purchasing this book "Don't waste your money or time."
I expected the fast pace and likable characters I have grown accustomed to in Lisa Scottoline's novels. While the storyline was interesting, I never really cared much about any of the characters.
While the story has an interesting premise, it goes awry toward the middle and never gets back on track. The characters are unbelievable (too extreme), and it feels like the author struggled to come up with an ending. Cynthia Nixon does a very good job narrating- she is quite talented, but that wasn't enough to save this book for me.
A waste of one credit! I have read just about every book Scottoline has written and enjoyed each one. I could not bring myself to listen to this one anymore. The main character is unlike any other female character Scottoline writes about. This character is spineless, clueless and has no common sense. Back to the drawing board Lisa. Why is there no 1/2 star or minus star option?
I can usually listen to most anything during my daily commute and typically enjoy Lisa Scottoline's audiobooks. Not the case with Save Me.
First, the narrator's voice was a little grating on my nerves. Too weak and sweet. Next, the story line frustrated me to the point that I finally had to turn it off. As a parent myself, I had no respect for the main character AT ALL and found the whole story line completely useless. Maybe if I had kept on listening a while longer it would have gotten better. However, I just could not even force myself to go on.
I can't believe I wasted a full credit on this..sigh...
Wow. Only someone like Jodie Picoult could incorporate all three of these controversial topics into one novel and make it interesting and make you think about both sides. It kept taking different turns, and my interest was held.
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
As with all her books I loved it!! I was presently surprised with the narrator Cynthia nixon..she was amazing!
I love historical sagas, the longer , the better!
I have just finished the first book, and I thought it was great! I had never heard of L. Scottoline before, so I checked out her site. Looks like I have a lot to catch up on...
