“Save the cheerleader, save the world” are the defining words of Heroes, the phenomenal series that has transformed television drama. They are also the cryptic marching orders for the show’s cross section of ordinary individuals united by an extraordinary bond. Each possesses a superhuman ability, and together they must prevent the course of history from taking a terrifying turn. Now, in this original novel based on the TV phenomenon, in a thrilling story that will captivate even those who haven’t seen the show, one of these unexpected saviors steps center stage on a deeply personal quest that will test the limits of his gift, the depth of his love, and the ultimate strength of his will. Hiro Nakamura possesses the remarkable power to control time. And like his uniquely blessed comrades, he’s on a mission for the good of humankind. But another challenge awaits him: saving the love of his life from an unspeakable death. Charlene “Charlie” Andrews is the big-hearted, small-town beauty whose sunny smile and sweet soul knocked the shy Hiro head over heels. But when Charlie’s young life is snuffed out by a grisly serial killer, their budding romance is brutally cut short. Or is it? Thanks to his astounding newfound skill, Hiro has the means to do what no tragedy-stricken lover in history ever could–turn back time. And no matter how raw his abilities, or how many twists of circumstance conspire to foil him, he vows to deliver Charlie from the evil poised to claim her. He will be her hero. But what possible consequences might changing the past visit upon the future? How could saving one cherished life affect millions of others? And what ultimate choice will Hiro make when the power of fate rests in his hands?… (mer)

For my review please visit my blog: Martin's View: Saving Charlie. ( )
  Martin_Maenza | Apr 14, 2017 |
At least this as an interesting approach to a TV tie-in novel; instead of more exciting adventures with the characters from the series it’s a character piece based on it, a romance with superpowers. That choice is the best thing about the book though. What this story could have been is a tragic, doomed romance which, knowing the ending, breaks your heart. What it ends up being is a quick shallow sprint through what should have been a tender relationship. Hiro’s reduced from the lovable onscreen geek to a sketch of a geek, a pop culture obsessed virgin who can’t talk to a girl. And Charlie is a caricature of a smalltown girl. There’s no depth or impact to the tragedies of her life, they’re just things that have happened to her, from the death of her parents to her own death. The moments that should have sung, moments like Hiro using his powers for romantic purposes and a late reciprocation by her just occur with no visible impact. There’s no attempt to play up the culture clash between Texas and Tokyo never a moment where you can marvel at how strange it really is. And this is all wrapped in perfunctory prose which often seems to struggling to his a page count. Perhaps if this had been an episode the actors could have lifted it – the material’s certainly there for them to play the audience’s heartstrings like a violin – but what’s here feels better material for the screen than the page.

My daughter gave me this as a gift because we've been watching Heroes together. It's a good example of its type - novelizations of TV shows, movies, etc. I've read novelizations in several lines (Star Trek, Star Wars, Spiderman, etc.) and know they can run the gamut from insipid to inspiring. This one is closer to the latter. If you have good writers, they can take mass media characters and give them a depth beyond the flat 2-D of visual media and breadth beyond the ability of a 60 - 120 minutes of story telling. A bad writer (and I've read a bunch!) think the title will draw the readers and they don't have to put any creativity into the character development or plot. Bad editors will accept this dreck and thus give novelizations a bad name.

Wallington does a good job of fleshing out the story of one of Heroes' most endearing characters (Hiro) and one of it's most poignant story lines. Can Hiro save the life of a pretty West Texas waitress with the power to remember anything that's happened to her or she's read or saw? Will the evil Sylar succeed in murdering her and stealing her power? Wallington crafts a tender love story in the shadow of this possible horrible fate. It's not Shakespeare, but it's fun. ( )

I think I waited too long to read this book, as the Heroes new episodes travelled back to Midland and worked to "Fix" Hiro's past. I won't elaborate more to save this from spoiling things.

This book touches a lot of information within Hiro, fills in gaps in the character that might not be obvious in the show. Books of this nature always are welcome in my shelves as I like to get to know characters well. From the general reading standpoint, this book was a fun romp thorugh the missing time of Hiro's journey to save the cheerleader. I think my biggest gripe was how they tried to work scenes from the show into the book to ground it properly into the show. They didn't feel like they flowed smoothly with the rest of the writing.

From a writer's standpoint, the book maintained a steady plot throughout, its subplots closely tied to the plot. It stuck closely with the one point of view, though drifted as most writers do when a character views another's actions. As I read, I remembered a professor of English Literature telling my class that a repeated phrase always frames important information within the book, and this book seemed to show a falacy within that concept, though I might be wrong.

Enjoyed the book, would only recommend it to Die Hard Heroes/Hiro Nakamura fans. ( )

This was a fun, light quick read. Not world changing but for fans of the early Heroes it is a chance to spend some time with Hiro and Charlie that we missed. We know how it starts, we know how it ends, this book imagines the middle. I enjoyed it for what it was. If you like Hiro, you'll love him here. ( )
