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
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

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.

I just love the Shiloh Trilogy! It is so heartwarming and sensitive. Also I love how the people of WB are represented since a lot of people think we are ignorant and stupid. The dad's explanation of being vegetarian and wearing leather was truly a stroke of genius. It gives children a deeper level of reading than they realize, how to treat others even if they are unlikable, don't spread rumors, and above all how to treat animals. The book is a children's classic and to me it is obvious why. It h ...more
Marty's parents think so -- even Judd Travers, whose history of drinking and violence keeps Marty from completely trusting that his beloved dog, Shiloh, will always be safe from Judd.
"Some people just seem to attract trouble," Marty's Ma says, and Judd attracts the sort of trouble that makes it hard to believe he's really changed. First, the police find the body of a man who'd fought with Judd. Then, a vicious attack forces Judd to kill one of his d

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.
the final and last book of the shiloh trilogy. the three books and the thre movies is the best and the best story line ever. one of my favorites and will be on my shelf also.
Unlike so many trilogies-this final story really goes somewhere and gives a marvelous ending to the story of Marty,Shiloh and Judd.
I REALLY liked this book. It showed that true friends never abandon each other. I liked that the boy was loyal to the dog.

This is a good ending to the Shiloh Trilogy. The main character, Marty sure has a bunch of courage.
i read this one with isabel in 5th grade becuase we were reading and writing partners.
I liked the Shiloh books. They kept my attention and always had something going on.

This is one of the best books i read so far. This book made me cry a couple of times
More touching than two novel before (Shiloh and Shiloh Season). I like the ending.

Kylie and I read this book together this summer. We finished the Shiloh series. It was another great book and we recommend it to readers who care about animals but not too much. Some of the animals get mistreated in this book but it has a great ending. The mean character and the main character, Marty, and the dog all hug at the end. Marty was always kind to Judd and then Judd became kind to the dog. Earlier in the book, Shiloh saved his life. So, Judd decided to give back. This is one of our fav ...more

Can't wait to read this book!!
VERY good ending to the series.
This book was also really good!
Great ending to the triligy
The movie is pretty good too.
A very strong 4 star rating! The third part of the Shiloh trilogy, this book follows the story of Marty, his dog Shiloh, and Shiloh's former owner Judd into deeper waters. Judd is recovering from his broken leg and his heart seems to be healing as well. People are mistrustful of him still, though, especially when a man goes missing and is then discovered dead--a man Judd was seen to be arguing with soon before his death. Judd does some good turns for his neighbors, though, and his true colors ar ...more
This book was stuffed like a pot roast with good writing!

First off, what a great trilogy, wonderful story, lovable characters and a plot so sweet you can taste the honey.

Many people are animal lovers and this is certainly a book series I would recommend.

From the plot twists to the scary climaxes I was actually getting nervous for the safety of these characters, and in the final scenes where all hope just as well could have been lost, it crazy all the feelings and thoughts that swim around.

Marty's family continues to try to be friendly toward Judd, even inviting him over for Thanksgiving even though the townspeople have decided they'd rather Judd left town. When a man is missing and then found murdered, everyone (except Marty) is convinced Judd is guilty. When people find that someone has been breaking into their homes everyone blames Judd, except Marty. (In the end it turns out that two escape convicts are responsible, Marty and his friend David find their hideout and report it t ...more
