This book is ok. It's not spectacular, but it's not boring. It reads fast and is a good story with a nice twist at the end. You won't be blown away, but you will enjoy this book.

I was starting to lose interest in Baldacci's predicatble novels until this one came along. Loved the characters and the plot line. Might be his best since Absolute Power.

It takes reading about one-third of this book to really get into the story, but then it takes off. This legal-political thriller has some interesting plot twists, but sometimes too much detailed description that really draws things out in the beginning. The reader's patience is eventually rewarded as Baldacci spins an entertaining tale of suspense.

Spoilers follow . . . what a terrible novel! The plot is amateurish at best while the character development leaves much to be desired. First of all, the near-rape scene is understandable considering the reasoning Baldacci provided for Lee's anger; however, this doesn't dismiss the twisted turn the plot suddenly takes as Faith and Lee consummate their love the very next day. Unless these characters originate from mental institutions the entire story is highly unbelievable. Faith escapes death multiple times somehow -- including one instance where a pistol is conveniently moved in front of her to deflect a high powered rifle shot. What else is there to say? The plot comes to a sputtering end as Faith is left emaciated as she and Lee drive off into the sunset with Reynolds tailing them. With a plot worse than Joe Millionaire, I wouldn't even recommend this novel to my former 9th grade english teacher whom I despise.

I came accross Saving Faith by accident, and enjoyed the read. The plot twists kept the book interesting, as did the focus on Washington detail. The real weakness is the love story between Faith and Lee. How blue eyes, one night of sex and a near rape can constitute true love I don't know.

Saving Faith kept me on the edge of my seat, a very difficult book to put down. Baldacci set a good base for the story, then gradually brought it to the heights. I enjoyed it immensely!

This book would have been excellent if it didn't take so long to take off. At 500 pages in length, I started to actually enjoy reading it around page 275. The characters get confusing in the beginning but they start to thin out as the book progresses. The book had a movie script plot but was still enjoyable!

This novel takes a few chapters to get into. But it is well worth it. The main character is good and it gets really action-packed at the end. A really good read. Recommended

I normally love Baldacci but this was not his normal work or quality. I trudged through it, and only the last 25 pages or so were worth it. Definitely would not recommend.

I like David Baldacci, but for some reason this one really didn't capture my attenion too much. The title says exactly what it means.

I read this book when it first came out and saved it to read again. I just reread it and don't know why I wanted to. This time around, I found it to be redundant and rather boring.

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite David Baldacci once again brings readers a thriller; Saving Faith is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats, quickly turning pages to see what will happen next. In this tale, Faith Lockhart is depicted as an intelligent and beautiful woman; the assistant to a lobbyist. She is ready to blow the whistle on some things and the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Robert Thornhill, cannot allow that to happen. Just as the assassin takes aim, private investigator Lee Adams comes to the rescue. Thus begins the long and dangerous trek, taking readers from Maryland to North Carolina and back to Washington. The couple end up on the run from the police, FBI and the CIA. Saving Faith by David Baldacci is a very good read. I would not rate it as his best book, but it is an exciting read. Baldacci is at his best when he is bringing his readers tales dealing with the government. Saving Faith has a very complex plot and it is very difficult to summarize it. This is not a short tale at 476 pages. There is the inevitable romance between Lee and Faith. This tale drags in several places and the plot fell on too much background. While this may not be Baldacci at his best, it is still a good read with a peek inside the workings of the FBI and CIA. This is a review of the audio format read by Michael Kramer.

Some paragraphs turn up in huge type - distracting but not the author's fault. I like the characters.

It was a very interesting book. My original copy was lost so I resorted to getting it online. It was well worth getting it too!
