3.0 von 5 Sternen "Every mom is an action hero." 12. April 2011
Von E. Bukowsky - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Lisa Scottoline's "Save Me" is a domestic drama about a stay-at-home mom, Rose McKenna, who has a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Melly, from her first marriage, and a baby boy, John, from her second. Rose is unhappy about the teasing that Melly endures because of a prominent birthmark on her face. McKenna is determined to stop the bullying and, partly to keep an eye on her child, volunteers to be a "lunch mom" in school.

Unfortunately, a catastrophe in the cafeteria not only brings grief to innocent people but also makes Rose into a pariah. She is unfairly blamed for committing an unforgivable act, and must fend off pushy reporters and furious neighbors. Adding to her burdens is a painful secret from her past that she has never revealed to her husband, Leo.

The novel begins promisingly. Rose is sympathetic, compassionate, and a devoted wife and mother. She is infinitely patient and always seems to know how to make her kids happy. Scottoline points out that people who live in small communities may be close-knit and supportive. However, when tragedy strikes, they sometimes unjustly vent their anger on outsiders.

The characters in "Save Me" are thinly drawn, and the contrived and melodramatic story lacks nuance, realism, and substance. It is disappointing that, as the book progresses, Rose's activities become so outlandish. After uncovering a possible conspiracy, she drops her kids off with friends and starts behaving like Nancy Drew, sneaking around in disguise and pumping people for information. We have come to expect more from the talented Scottoline, who has written a number of compelling and suspenseful works of fiction.

1.0 von 5 Sternen please no 30. April 2011
Von McKennaea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have always loved Lisa Scottoline books. I picked this one up hardcover the moment I saw it. An overwhelming disappointment.
It starts out well, with an explosion in a school and a mother's choice. She makes the obvious but difficult compromise to save all of the children, and would have succeeded, but one child runs back into the building to retrieve an electronic toy and is badly injured. It's all downhill from there.
The plot is ridiculous and strains credibility. Although the husband and wife are supposed to be deeply in love with a good marriage, he seems very peripheral and uninvolved, except in his interactions with his stepdaughter. I got very bored reading about the adorable things baby John did, ad infinitum. Melly's birthmark was way overworked. The whole book was boring, and at the end, the main protagonists actions were stupid, as was the reaction to those actions, and everybody believed her story with no shred of proof. Well, except for the security guards actions toward another character, and why they would take her and tie her up at their first encounter is never explained. She tries to enter a company party, babbling about a murder that was written off years ago as an accident, and their reaction is to drag her off and tie her up? Were they in on this convoluted plot from the beginning. Did they call someone? The response was over the top and incriminating, which I guess is how the author had to tie up the loose ends of the slithery plot going nowhere.
Did Lisa Scottoline actually write this book? There were hints of her writing here and there, but I don't think she did.
Anyway, it was boring with a supremely unbelievable plot and this is my last Lisa Scottoline, at least to buy. Maybe she can redeem herself in another book, but I'm not going to pay for it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen RIDICULOUS! 11. Mai 2011
Von Renee Wadler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This seems to be my week to play the Grinch - After not commenting for months I have felt compelled to submit 2 negative reviews in one week. However, I must admit, "Save Me", makes the previous book I commented on seem a veritible prize winner.

"Save Me" is the most inane, childish, just plain boring book I have read in years. I forced myself to finish it - and even then I did some skipping. Does Scottoline really expect readers to be able to suspend disbelief to the point where they can accept a "Super Mom" who, figuratively, "leaps tall buildings" in one jump? The main character in this book does at least that.

She single-handedly overpowers a well over 6', 250 lb. (or more) Hit-Man,who is intent on killing her; she brings down Heads of large and respected corporations; and, the coup de gras, she brings down a US Senator and has him held for Murder, ALL BY HERSELF.

The stupidity is magnified, if possible, when she gets these people arrested and charged by the FBI and other law enforcement officials, without any REAL evidence! All this is done largely on the basis of what our "Super Mom" figured out MUST have happened.

This is becoming longer than I intended, and my only excuse is real anger and disappointment that an Author who I once enjoyed and respected, has sunk to these unimaginablely low depths.

Suffice it to say, Save Me reads like a comic book; it will bore most thinking Adults, and should have been marketed for Pre-Teens.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good but not her best 16. April 2011
Von Dr. Cathy Goodwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Scottoline is at her best when writing about her women lawyer heroines, especially Mary DiNunzio. This time she introduces a lawyer's wife who defines herself mostly as a mom. Scottoline's writing is good enough to elevate the book above most mysteries written today. Still, I felt a disconnect. Some of the one-liners (like the 12-minute attention span of a kid or a mom on a mission) seemed better suited to the lawyers like Mary and Judy. Rose's detective work also seems more in character with Mary and Judy than with this suburban mother. The lawyers are like Sex and the City characters - fun and just this side of believable.

Okay...now we get to wait a whole year for the next book. And I have to admit I hope we get back to the originals. I realize authors want to branch out but hey, I'm just a reader here.

1.0 von 5 Sternen What is this book about? 7. Mai 2011
Von Marlo C. Kirkpatrick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Is this a book about bullying? About unfair judgements? About past actions impacting the present? Or is it a Nancy Drew mystery? I don't know, and I don't think the author does, either. If I had not been trapped on an airplane, I would never have finished this book. The constant talk of how adorable Baby John is, the detailed description of letting a dog out before bedtime, the mundane chatter of a six-year-old going on and on and on about hamburgers, the completely unrealistic hatred directed toward a mother involved in a fire that injures a child, the laughably melodramatic statement that "All moms are superheroes," and finally, the utterly, utterly preposterous mystery all combine to make this a boring, completely unbelievable, and just plain bad read.
