Save Me: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Lisa Scottoline

Narrated By: Cynthia Nixon

Date: April 2011

Duration: 11 hours 1 minutes


From the New York Times bestselling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice

Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly's school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who's been bullying her daughter. Her fears come true when the bullying begins, sending Melly to the bathroom in tears. Just as Rose is about to follow after her daughter, a massive explosion goes off in the kitchen, sending the room into chaos. Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to run to the bathroom to rescue her daughter or usher Amanda to safety. She believes she has accomplished both, only to discover that Amanda, for an unknown reason, ran back into the school once out of Rose's sight. In an instance, Rose goes from hero to villain as the small community blames Amanda's injuries on her. In the days that follow, Rose's life starts to fall to pieces, Amanda's mother decides to sue, her marriage is put to the test, and worse, when her daughter returns to school, the bullying only intensifies. Rose must take matters into her own hands and get down to the truth of what really happened that fateful day in order to save herself, her marriage and her family.

In the way that Look Again had readers questioning everything they thought they knew about family, Save Me will have readers wondering just how far they would go to save the ones they love. Lisa Scottoline is writing about real issues that resonate with real women, and the results are emotional, heartbreaking and honest.

    Sooooooo annoying on two levels. If I had to hear from the author one more time, "just a mom", I was going to slit my throat. It was the worst book I have listened to/read within the past year. To add more insult to injury, Cynthia Nixon made the child sound like a whiney, throaty adult when she was supposed to be an 8 year old child. Save yourself the agony and purchase another book.

    As usual, Lisa Scottoline delivers on an exciting and innovative story. I would have preferred another reader, as sometimes, the reader made the characters sound like they had speech impediments. Barbara Rosenblatt would have been a better choice. The book has so many twists and turns, a real "who done it". Kept my attention. Enjoyed it, although i wonder how a lawyer would have all that time to do the investigation.

    Lisa Scottoline does not disappoint readers in "Save Me." The book goes deep to the heart and has many layers. The best part is that you don't know where the next chapter will take you. The question of "Is Rose over-protective?" is a theme that runs through the book. What would you do? Have you been ever had a child who stood out from the crowd? Have you been the child who stood out in the crowd? Apart from the story itself, it was a thought-provoking book.

    Book was good but Melly was a whiner and arose was overprotective.

    If you love David Sedaris you will love hearing his performance at Carnegie Hall. Reading David's books is entertaining but HEARING him emphasize his points (the hand was RUBBER!)is hilarious. An added bonus is his interaction with his audience--his improvisation is as funny as the earlier material he read.
