This is the final book to the Shiloh trilogy. I have been listening to it in my car. I found it to be very exciting. I would recommend listening to this book on cassette or CD, rather than reading it. The background music heightened the suspense and the reader was excellent. He enhanced the story. I found myself holding my breath a number of times, as I listened. I could see using this book in a classroom as a read aloud, especially listening to it on tape or CD. That alone could be a lesson in ...more

I think that Saving Shiloh was a very good book. I also think that it is a very good conclusion to the Shiloh trilogy. I thought that in some parts were funny and some were serious. for example one part that was funny was when Marty"s friend called him and said their was a dead man in the water.

Marty Preston wonders why it is that despite Judd Traver's attempts to redeem himself everyone is still so willing to think the worst of him. Marty's friend David is sure that Judd will be named as the murderer of a man who has been missing. Others are sure that Judd is behind a series of burglaries in the area. But Marty's parents and, with some trepidation, Marty himself persist in their attempts to be good neighbors and to give Judd a second chance. Now that Marty has Shiloh, maybe he

This story is about a boy named Marty and it all started at Thanks Giving and his worst enemy Judd Travers is coming over and no one wants him to come, but the parents have to be polite since he hurt himself in a car crash a few months ago. So all the children are whining and saying why does he have to come. So on the day he was coming no one was happy or cheerful they were focused on what they were doing because they don't want him to complain about the food. After a few days have past Marty i ...more

I gave this book a four star because there was as much as intense as the first one. I think that Judd was a big impact on this book without him it wouldn't of been a good of a book. Because Judd pretty much keep the whole series going on and had the eager it building up inside me. I thought this book was a good and clear book and I thought that the characters were even better than the book itself. I thought that Phyllis Reynolds Naylor is a great author and I think she should keep on continuing ...more

This is the third book to the Shiloh series.

This book was amazing it warmed my heart when Judd went into the water to save Shiloh. I also loved when Marty and David found all the stolen things and found tracks of the escaped robbers. I learned that you should never chain dogs because they will grow mean and tough and when you go up to them they will growl and try to scare you off because they are trapped to a chain and have no chance of fighting if needed.

This sadly is most likely the final book

I read Saving Shiloh; it's realistic fiction. I thought this book was good. It was interesting and it was good to learn about the series. I like that it showed detail and how it teaches a lesson of to believe peopple can change over time. It was a great story. I think Shiloh even though he's a dog is the most interesing character. He has a large story about his life and he is an amazing dog that even humans can learn from.

This book is the squeal to Shiloh. This book is very good. I love it. There is a cliff hanger at the end of every chapter. After I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend.

This is a good ending to the Shiloh Trilogy. The main character, Marty sure has a bunch of courage.
Unlike so many trilogies-this final story really goes somewhere and gives a marvelous ending to the story of Marty,Shiloh and Judd.

“pretending that Shiloh’s a bear, tryin’ to get in. The more they squeal, the more Shiloh wiggles about, tryin’ to get his nose under the edge of the sheet, tail going ninety miles an hour. If that dog had wings, he’d fly, except his propeller would be on the wrong end.” 0 likes
“It’s hard to sleep that night. Our sofa’s got more lumps than bean soup, and every time I turn over, I pull out the blanket from the bottom. I get up about two in the morning and stand at the window. Moon’s almost full, and the snow sparkles like diamonds. I’m not lookin’ for moonlight or snowlight, though—only Shiloh. We keep the shed door open on nights like this so he can go in there and sleep if he comes back late. But I know my dog; he’d make at least one detour up on the porch first to see if somebody was awake to let him in. Not a fresh paw print anywhere. I’m thinking of the hunters we heard up in our woods. Deer season’s over now, but there’s possum and coon to hunt; rabbit and groundhog, too. What if a hunter took it in his head to steal Shiloh? You ride along and see notices posted on trees about a dog missing, and most of the time” 0 likes
