“The book is pretty nice. I enjoyed the fact that the author didn't try to make the Middle Ages look sweet in anyway, but I didn't like the fact that I couldn't identify with any of the characters, which I think is always nice in a book. Even so it is a nice story and a completely new look into Romeo and Juliet.”Fê Merege wrote this review Thursday, April 5, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Saving Juliet was a pretty cute novel.
It is about Mimi and her journey with her handsome yet egoistic Co-star Troy to the world of Romeo and Juliet. They are both the stars of the play version of Shakespeare's masterpiece and learn more about love, history, tragedy, life, themselves and so much more when they travel back in time.
The concept was pretty cool; I really like the idea of time travel. the main character, Mimi, was a pretty good main character and I disliked the way her mom treated her. So I sympathized with Mimi. It was funny at times and that sort of mellowed it down. This novel was pretty fluffy. It's something you should read more for entertainment. The writing style is pretty laid-back so it lacked some depth that I wished was there. Overall, it was a pretty enjoyable novel. :)”

“Saving Juliet, Suzanne Selfors, 242 pages
1. Which characters or characters did you most enjoy? Why?
I really enjoyed Mimi and Troy. Mimi has a ton of problems in her life. Her mom wants her to be a actress like the rest or her family but she really wants to be a doctor. She keeps telling her mother that she doesn't want to be an actress but her mom won't listen. Troy is the Justin Bieber of this book. He is super popular and has everything or so you think. As the story progresses you find out the deep dark secrets of Troy that you would never would have expected to happen.
2. Was the setting important to the text? Why?
The setting was very important because you can't have a book called "Life in the 15 and 16 Century". That would just confuse the reader an the author. You can't have the life of a girl in the 20th century and travel back in time. Or you can't have the play in a candyshop either. You have the make sure that the settings follow the text or the other way around.
3. Who told the story in the text you jsut read? Was the narrator a character in the story an omnicient narrator? How did the narrator affect you reading the story?
Mimi the main character to the story. I liked it because she would give you her perspective and not just some one viewing the scene. I really liked it because she did a little epilogue at the end that kinda sumed up the loose strings at the end of the book. She did't leave you with a cliffhanger and no next book which was great.
4. What confused you or surprised you in the text?
I was surprised that Troy Summers wasn't Troys real name and that Mimi's mom actutally let her got he med school and that Troy and Mimi both liked each other. I also liked how that Romeo and Juliet didn't have to die and got to go and to there thing and not have to worry about Juliet's mother or anyother perosn after them.
This was an amazing book and I hope that many other people get a chance to read it. ”
