    1. Onvan : The Tutor - Nevisande : Peter Abrahams - ISBN : 345439414 - ISBN13 : 9780345439413 - Dar 359 Safhe - Saal e Chap : 2002


    2. Very limp domestic thriller, particularly so for one that starts with an erection, literally, first sentence and there it is. Notably clever and able Sherlock obsessed kid (by far the shining star of this production), a bunch of clueless adults and an oddly bland psychopath square off after a simple part time tutoring position gets expanded into something of a live aboard, blurring the boundaries of privacy and reason. Sort of a supermarket thriller. Very readable and quickly so, but doesn't hav [...]


    3. A while back (late 1980s/early 1990s) there was a spate of suspense movies I think of as "cuckoo in the nest" stories. The cuckoo, as most people know, is notorious for laying its eggs in the nests of unsuspecting birds, so that its huge, demanding chick crowds out the rightful fledglings and steals all their food and attention. In a similar fashion, these films -- Single White Female, The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, The Temp, Pacific Heights, etc. -- feature a hapless person or family who lets [...]


    4. Oh yeah off my massive Game of Thrones series and back in the library like I left something choosing random titles to fit my reading fancy and stumbled upon this one, I cant lie the two word title and the foreshadowing of evil and manipulation was too strong to resist and I picked this one up, but yawn it was not what I expected, have read something like it and better and really didn't care for it like I should (after a five star read books have a lot to live up to in my mind LOL) and this one w [...]


    5. This is a stunning read from Abrahams. When Scott and Linda Gardner hire Julian Sawyer to tutor their troubled teenage son Brandon, he seems like the answer to a prayer. Capable and brilliant, Julian connects with Brandon in a way neither of his parents can. He also effortlessly helps Linda to salvage a troubled business deal and gives Scott expert advice on his tennis game. Only eleven-year old Ruby—funny, curious, devoted to Sherlock Holmes—has doubts about the stranger in their midst who [...]


    6. I don't know why I picked this book up in the first place. I still remember how the book begins and it does not seem to be the type of genre I was normally interested in. Somehow the book drew me in and it did not take longer than a chapter or two before I was immersed in this novel. The story was mostly written in perspective of a 11 year-old girl, Ruby. She was such a lovable character and without her narration I would of rated this book about 3 stars. 3 because Peter Abrahams seem to have a w [...]


    7. My first mistake was thinking that since Peter Abrahams, a favorite young adult writer, wrote this book that it must be a young adult novel. It was anything but. It was a very dark story. I didn't enjoy it as much as I would have liked to and only kept reading it because of who wrote it. And okay, yes, I needed to see what happened to this poor trusting innocent family. And the other thing is that I love stories with smart little girls in it. In this case, the 11 year-old daughter, Ruby, who lov [...]


    8. I was interested in this book and was thoroughly enjoying it until it ended, and quite abruptly. The development of the ending left much to be desired. I think Abrahams could have easily written another hundred pages and given this book the ending it deserved. Though the reader was given explanation and closure all tied up with a nice, neat little bow, I felt the ending could have been so much better. Would've had a higher rating, but the ending killed it for me:/


    9. Anymore if a book can keep me looking forward to reading more then it ranks pretty high. This book kept me coming back. I'm not sure about the narrator who made Julian seen extremely unlikely to be believable in the role as new found family friend due to his cryptic and rather short answers to friendly dialogue. But you can buy into the family bringing Julian into the fold, so to speak, then the rest of the plot goes alongpretty well.


    10. Was partly entertaining, highly creepy, somewhat inexplicable, but the little girl! The little girl is the stupidest and the smartest character while also the most boring and the most interesting somehow. Plus she loves Sherlock Holmes so she's awesome.


    11. Mom and Dad hire an SAT tutor for their slacker son. Turns out he’s the tutor from hell. Abrahams is one of the best writers around.


    12.      "To the curious incident of the dog biting the psycho in the night-time."     "The dog did nothing but bite the psycho in the night-time."     "That was the curious dog biting incident," remarked Sherlock Holmes. Zippy you didn't deserve it Watson take care of the family


    13. I probably should not have read it as an 11 year old. After I did, I told our school librarian about language and scenes in the book, and it was removed.Very well-written, from what I remember, but I would recommend an older audience.



    14. Only gets 2 stars instead of 1 because the writing was good. The story though, not so good. And the ending terrible. Nothing explained and it felt empty. Disappointing.


    15. A slow burner that keeps building and doesn't disappoint, although doesn't quite make a slam-dunk.Very engaging and easy to read, but not simplistic.



    16. "Gas suddenly igniting in midair like liquid fire"SPOILERS!!!!!!!!The Family decides to hire a Tutor to help their son bring up his SAT scores so he can do better but the Tutor decides to befriend all the family especially their young daughter Ruby. The Tutor a very intelligent man seems normal at first and everyone thinks he's a nice guy but Ruby being a big Sherlock Holmes fan starts to analyze his every move and realizes that he is more than how everyone see's him. All of the sudden she's cau [...]


    17. If you have read my previous reviews on Peter Abrahams your probably wondering why I ever bothered reading another one of his books. Well, I'll tell you this, I'm glad I did. The Tutor was a very interesting novel. I enjoyed all of the characters in it and found them to be believable. The Tutor himself, is my favorite, but the little girl, Ruby is a very close second. The story is about a typical family with a typical teenage son. They want him to get into the best university possible but he doe [...]


    18. Ένας άγνωστος άντρας μπαίνει στη ζωή μιας οικογένειας για να παραδώσει ιδιαίτερα μαθήματα στον γιο για τις εξετάσεις στο SAT. Ο πατέρας παίζει στο χρηματιστήριο, η μητέρα κρατάει ένα μυστικό, ο γιος μπλέκει με ναρκωτικά κι η κόρη μαθαίνει τοξοβολία και διαβάζει μανιωδώς Σέρ [...]


    19. Peter Abrahams, why do you do this to me? This book is so good, and yet so flawed. First off, it is the first Peter Abrahams book I've ever read that had no particular surprise in the ending (yes, that was in itself a surprise). I read a good deal and am somewhat hard to surprise, but still, one of the things I really liked about Abrahams was that he was able to pull the rug out from under me at least once a book and he didn't do it here. Secondly, his plots are really unbelievable. This has alw [...]


    20. After a rather frenetic beginning where the story bounced between characters like the little metal spheres in a pinball machine, it eventually settled down into a good suspense story. The tale centers around one family and the tutor they hire to help their son bring up his SAT scores. Scott, the father, makes a good living, but would like to provide his family with even more. Linda, the mother, is focused on her career. Brandon, their son, is no longer doing well in school and is hanging out wit [...]


    21. This is a very dark, and disturbing story. I will say it's well written, very suspenseful, although I found the post resolution wrap up to be a bit too much deus ex machina.I decided to read The Tutor because it sounded very much like a precursor to Abrahams' Echo Falls series, which I love. And I suppose it is, but the Echo Falls series is YA and this novel is most assuredly not. This family is flawed, almost beyond redemption, while the Echo Falls family is flawed but with positive qualities, [...]


    22. Doing the Adult challenge in the Summer Reading Program at the MPL. Dustin picked me a scratch off card and it said the genre of "thriller." I don't read thrillers. I picked this one. Wow, okay. I read it. Next. It wasn't bad, and didn't haunt me. I'm sure it was a great book, but I didn't absolutely love it and won't highly recommend it. I've never read Peter Abrams before, so ere, that's what the program is for. getting me to read something new. I did. I didn't actually love the one about the [...]


    23. This is one of those novels that you have difficulty figuring wout what genre it is. At times it's funny and then suddenly tragic. It reads like a Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys mystery and then morphs into a "serious novel." This lack of consisstency is what throws it off. The beginning and ending were excellent, but floundered a lot in the middle due to the fact that the author seemed to be having difficulty figuring out what kind of novel he should be writing.This could have been a five star novel, bu [...]


    24. I literally just put this book down. I decided to give it three stars because i didn't really like any character they were all kind of annoying and i didn't feel like any of them was particularly focused on. You got the essence of their character and really no more. I did think the book had a good plot and was definitely creepy. For the last 100 pages i couldn't put it down i had to know the end result. Definitely a light read and a good yet predictable thriller. I'd like to read another Abraham [...]


    25. Entertaining but a little, ok a lot, heavy-handed and obvious with symbolism. Strawberry jam anyone, or does that represent blood and guts and death? There were more appearances of that damn jam than there was actual carnage in this murder-suspense thriller. I thought the ending was completely predictable because the foreshadowing was so obvious. If you like to read books that let you figure out the ending, give it a go.


    26. I checked out three books at the library, this one I was least excited to read. However, the slow and ensnaring spiral into chaos was perfectly done, and it was as if I couldn't look away from a murder. The unique personalities of each family member and character were astounding, and the intelligence of young Ruby made the story come to life. With an amazing climax and twists you don't see coming, I would most highly recommend this book.


    27. This was one of the creepiest books I have ever read, but it was so addicting! I basically sat down with it and didn't move until I was done with it. Thw way it was written kept you ahead of the family enough so you were always worried for them, and the villian, Julian, besides being creepy/scary actually wasn't that horrible in a wierd twisted way.


    28. I picked this up because I've been reading too much of one genre lately, I had a coupon, and this was on the "staff picks" shelf at my local paperback store. What a waste of time. Predictability is not a good quality for a thriller. Am I sorry I wasted the time? Yes. Am I glad it was free? Also yes. Did I hate it? No. Will I read anything else by this author? Also no. 1.5 stars.
