Video of a group sexual act becomes a scandal. Different people involved tell the story.

This book was a real page turner and I couldn't wait to find out the whole story and yet, when I was done, I felt disappointed. I don't think the characters, including the headmaster, were developed enough. The ending seemed to fall flat for me. ( )

I tried grabbing Anita Shreve's book Rescue from my library, but it seems to be in, but not in :). So since I have never read anything by Anita I grabbed this one. It took about 2 "chapters" to get used to the person by person telling of the same story. It was very interesting and I was surprised how it ended but very impressed. Will be recommended this to anyone who asks for my input on a good read! :) ( )

Testimony. Anita Shreve. 2008. I have known about Shreve since I have been At a spiffy co-ed private prep school in Vermont, three star basketball players take a freshman girl age 14, to a dorm room for what becomes, an orgy. Two years later a researcher contacts all of the people involved and asks if she can interview them for a study on alcohol and the teenage boy. She interviews, the players, their parents, the headmaster, the girl, the girl friend of one of the players, a reporter, and others involved in the incident. Bit by bit we learn what happened and how lives were ruined by the thoughtless, stupid, dangerous actions of the boys. It is a fascinating story. The book reminds me of Jodi Piccoult’s novels where the plot is revealed slowly through the eyes of the characters. ( )

A wonderful, heartbreaking portrait. A little brief, but what is there is riveting. I certainly feel there was more story to explore- I would have liked to have heard from Noelle again. I would have liked to have heard more from Silas' uncle, the police officer. Perhaps to have seen J.Dot or Rob make appearances in other chapters so we could assess them from another angle.

Most of all, I would have liked Sienna to have been more rounded, less blatantly opportunistic and manipulative. It would have added a level of depth that knocks this parable out of the top tier.

I listened to the full cast audiobook, and give both the cast and the production high marks (thank you to the editor who decided to start each chapter with the name of the speaker). ( )

This is my second read for this author and I have to say, I am underwhelmed... after reading Rescue, I was looking forward to reading more by Anita Shreve but Testimony seemed to miss the mark.

A very enticing topic, I thought this book held a lot of promise. However, I found that the book lacked organization and that would be it's main downfall, in my opinion. It seemed to jump from year-to-year without mention of when it was and while this is normally not an issue, it was hard to figure out and I spend unnecessary time figuring it out. Also, the jumping from character to character, when added to the year-to-year jumping, was very confusing. Having so many characters involved, I almost needed a family tree/chart to keep track of who each person was and what their involvement in the story/crime was... very hard to track.

On a whole, the story was very good. I enjoyed the plot and I liked the twist that comes towards the end, regarding Silas and his family. It was very unexpected and definitely made me read that much harder to get to the bottom of the story.

Overall, I am glad that I have read this book and being at a 50% for the author, I will give her another try.
 
I would encourage every parent of a teenage girl to give her a copy of Testimony. Certainly, it contains several passages that are bleakly obscene. But it also offers girls the exact kind of story they want to read

It was a small cassette, not much bigger than the palm of his hand, and when Mike thought about the terrible license and risk exhibited on the tape, as well as its resultant destructive power, it was as though the two-by-three plastic package had been radioactive.
