Summary

After a party gone wrong and in desperate need of money for the fall semester of college, 20-year-old Nora Robertson needs to escape her hometown. She accepts a summer-long live-in tutoring job for a handsome man and his little sister at a secluded home deep in the mountains. There is no running water. No electricity. No Internet or cell service. When her tutoring job ends, she's hit with a brutal turn of events...she's not permitted to leave.

After months in captivity, she makes a harrowing escape with her student that ends in a car accident on a desolate road. When Nora comes to, her student is missing. In a desperate attempt to find the girl, Nora will have to recount her time held captive. The good and the bad. Can Nora and the authorities work together to find the man who took her? Will they rescue the girl Nora tried to save?

Loved!!

This audiobook is fantastic. You definitely need to be able to concentrate while listening because there are so many different characters and facets that wrap you in this world of the tutor and the man holding her captive that the newspapers have deemed the tutor. It is a psychological twisted romance that has so many lefts and rights that it kept me glued to my earphones. The character development was outstanding. The narrators did a fantastic job of selling the content and the emotion. I love love loved this Audio.

This book gave me Stockholm syndrome

This book. I think I have Stockholm Syndrome just from reading it. I feel like K Larsen should be offering a support group and therapy for her readers. No, really.

The Tutor is written in the POV's of all those who are part of the story. From Holden, the abductor and psycho to Lotte, the little girl who was caught up in all of the mess... everyone gets their POV chapters. I thought at first that it would be distracting but it really wasn't. I thoroughly enjoyed knowing what was going on with all these key characters in this twisted, mixed up story.

I really respect an author that writes something so in depth and something so clearly researched. The writing was on point and the characters, plot and scene were so intricately described. My mind was able to, so vividly, picture the cabin and the mountain and the town and the house and everything. The characters were resolute in their descriptions, their choices were all so uniquely defined to what the author had plotted out. Not only was it a well written book but it was so engrossing.

Emotional

Hard to wrap my mind around this one. So many conflicting emotions
during the entire story. It gets better as it goes along. Being happy and sad about the ending. Just kind of shocked at how it ended. I don’t know how I wanted it to end exactly but it goes back to conflicting emotions again...

Good story but

If you are looking for a romantic Stockholm syndrome book, this is not it. More of a thriller than romance.
The story definitely kept my interest but wasn't exactly what I was expecting.

Never considered Stockholm Syndrome romantic...

Frankly I’m considering returning this audio book. The only reason I finished it is because I had to know whether or not “The Tutor” was taught a harsh lesson in the end. I’ll just say that the violence, abuse and subsequent mind control suffered by the main character was far too much for me to understand how it could be romanticized— even by someone as young as her. This is also the first time that the narrator actually took away from the story for me. I had a difficult time separating some of the female characters, there were obvious stumbles and pauses- just one more reason for a refund.
