Rating 45 Saving Toby was an incredibly amazing read After weeks searching for a decent book I was starting to lose hope that talent had long since been lost until I found Saving Toby—it gave me faith that there were still authors in the literary world who are gifted and uniue Suzanne McKenna Link is a very talented writer she's a true author and deserves a whole lot recognition It kind of frustrates me that authors who write poor uality books that are written atrociously ones that have no uniue plot are bland and predictable and have mediocre characters are recognized and praised than authentic and original writers like Suzanne McKenna Link I don't know why people gravitate towards the former it's completely beyond me but I certainly do not follow that crowd Suzanne is incredible she has a very special way with words that so easily evoke emotions out of you that you wouldn't normally feel especially not from fiction And not only are her words special but so is Suzanne herself—the whole way through Saving Toby you could just feel and see how much time and effort Suzanne puts into her writing; soul and heart Her writing was so meticulous but came across as effortless at the same time Her dedication shone though every sentence and I was both impressed and moved by her commitment and devotion to her characters and the story I liked Saving Toby right from the beginning and I honestly had no idea which way the plot was going to go; usually it's uite obvious but not with this book; I knew I was in for an unexpected story and once I started I didn't want to stop reading I actually didn't even want the book to ever end but I knew that naturally it had toand I was very restless as I was drawn closer and closer towards the ending of the bookThe characters throughout Saving Toby were very well developed; after several chapters they had already started to feel like real people to me I kind of felt privileged to be reading and following Claudia and Toby on their journey through life They learnt so much about life about themselves about each otheryou could feel their growth through the book especially with Toby And Julia was a beautiful character she was a huge part of Claudia and Toby and their life together and apart I also loved Mr Chiatmetti despite his strong hold on Claudia; he was seriously protective of his daughter and at times I was frustrated with his decisions and his closed minded opinions but I also understood him—his daughter came first and I think he was just scared to lose herlose his baby girl to the big world to independence where Claudia would go off and find a life of her ownThe side characters such as April Dario Abe and even Ray and Dev were all widely different characters and the characterisation was superb Each character had a role separate personalities and views and Suzanne pulled each one off exceptionally wellI will be honest and say that I liked Toby than Claudia Claudia started off as uite naive but I had understood it and even related to that side of her Along with that she was strong willed independent intelligent and had a natural way with helping people However she was also a little selfish at times and a little too focused on being independent that it kind of clouded everything else in her life She pushed Toby away a lot especially when he needed her the most Part of that I had understood her drive and fight to pursue her dreams but it wasn't very balanced—everything for a while was all about her and her need to move and work towards a career that she kind of put everyone and everything else on the backburner It was just a little bit too much and not always fair to the people in her life By half way through the book and towards the end some of her choices and her reasoning's where a little frustrating and sometimes her point of view became a little repetitive andboring She was a bit uptight at times and I just wanted her to loosen up a bit to relax to not be so serious Also even though I understood her not forgiving Toby so easilyuickly for the things he had done and said Claudia took it to a new extreme; she couldn't seem to ever let it go and held it against Toby even two years later She was always telling Toby that she never believed she was too good for him or that she was better than him however her actions spoke very differently She was a pro at avoiding and dragging things on longer than necessary I felt sorry for Toby like she was leading him on making him suffer than he needed to than he deserved In a way I felt Toby was better off without Claudia but in the end you just can't ignore their undeniable chemistry Toby was short tempered had an anger simmering under the surface at all times and he was defensive and sometimes a little too reactive But I loved him because deep down he had a beautiful soul He was incredibly hilarious whenever there was a moment I laughed during the story it was always because of him I loved his journey than Claudia's; his growth was obvious intense admirable and he eventually became well deserved of everything good in life I was on his side even when he did or said something uestionable—the thing with Toby is he eventually realised his mistakes and he made the effort to fix them His attraction to Claudia was intense when reading from his point of view Toby is your typical male in the sense of sexuality and he was uite arrogant with what he could do withfor Claudia in that aspect; he was definitely confident in that regard and even though it wasn't my favourite trait of his it was still interesting to witness I felt a lot of emotions when inside his head than when I was in Claudia's Even though there was often an intensity and an aggressiveness to him there was also something really warm and secure about him—comfortable For the right things he was strong and compassionate and when he was finally on the discovery and transformation of who he was without all the baggage of his past and his mistakes as he started making something of himself it was impossible not to be proud of his character I loved him at the beginning of the story but that love constantly grew never faltering and by the end of the book he had officially became one of my favourite characters not just from Saving Toby but out of every book I've read Toby was pretty incredible I would have been beyond satisfied even if the whole book was just in his point of viewSuzanne McKenna Link has a strong talent with adding realism to her work 98% of this book the characterisation the events the emotions the thoughts from the characters the genre the suspense was realistic There was a believability to her writing style she made most things in the book feel natural and real I will say that at some points I did find a couple of scenes uestionable; I remember one of them was when Claudia's father let her go out when Dev an evil sadistic asshole who was out for blood and Claudia was no doubt one of his targets was still on the loose Mr Chiatmetti despite being a cop and a strict and over protective Dad seemed all too uick to agree to let Claudia leave when there was a high chance of her being in danger; it was like he thought because the police were already patrolling and on the look out for Dev that Claudia would be safe Not very good cop logic or Dad logic to me Which in turn didn't feel realistic to me There were also just a couple of short scenes spread out in the book that could have been revised and re written in a realistic way however even in saying that there was realism than not I've read some reviews from people who took away points because they were worried that the discriminationracist crimeviolence could possibly be the authors own views I personally think that's ridiculous Characterisation and world building are two of Suzanne's best traits in writing and in the real world there is hate and there is crime and there are people who are racist and cruel and discriminating and to make Saving Toby realistic she had to show that in her book She added to her book what happens in everyday life; it may not be pretty it may be sickening and hard to read but unfortunately things in life aren't always perfect or good—there are bad people in this world and I actually loved that she was brave enough to add some of that to her book The readers don't have to like or agree with those parts of the book but at least appreciate the realism of it that it's necessary to add to the book as part of the plot A lot of the bad things in Saving Toby actually ended up changing Toby's life for the better—made him realise things and turn his life around I definitely didn't like the racism or the cruelty however I'm mature enough to understand that it was necessary for the eventual direction of the storyline Adding to the realism I loved that Saving Toby was not fast paced Some people would probably think it's too slow too dragged out but I actually believed that it was the perfect most natural pace for both the plot and the characters Sure there were a couple of moments where not a whole lot was happening but that's like in life—sometimes things come to a standstill for a short time sometimes things in life aren't always entertaining sometimes things are just slow Again it was realistic There was a good balance of suspense Reading and watching and feeling Claudia and Toby experience all the ups and downs trials and tribulations loss and love pain and happiness both as individuals and together was amazing I caught myself smiling a lot Several times my heart and stomach were doing all kinds of funny things There were even moments when I had tears in my eyes I was completely immersed into this story both emotionally and mentally and I never wanted to step out of Toby and Claudia's lives Saving Toby was a character driven book and I loved that the characters were prominent than the actual drama going on around them; the characters were front and centre there wasn't a mix up or a back and forthness with drama development and character development like a tug of war of which was important—you knew what was important about this book right from the get go and it was consistent all throughout I love coming of age stories when done right and Suzanne McKenna Link done it right I loved how it was emphasised how different Toby and Claudia were from each other and the genuine and legitimate struggles and triumphs in their relationship I adored the sweetness and the roughness the angst and the calmness This book was believable frustrating adorable intense unexpected and beautiful I absolutely cannot wait for the second book Keeping Claudia and only hope both Toby and Claudia's growth continues to happen To be honest I have a lot of expectations for book two after reading Saving Toby and I can't wait to see what Suzanne has in store for these characters I won't be forgetting Saving Toby anytime soon— it's one of those books where it makes you think and feel so much that you couldn't forget it even if you wanted to
