  • "Typical Jodi Picoult plot, chik lit..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Ive read all of Picoults books. Some are better than others. This one is better than average. Sort of My Sisters Keeper meets Dances With Wolves.

    I dislike reviews that are, really, a synopsis of the plot but as the first reviewer I feel obligated to give a Non Spoiler brief of the story. Man with family becomes engrossed with wolves. Leaves family to fend for itself and devotes his early adulthood to research.
    Wife resents, divorces wolf man. Older gay son splits for 6 years and younger daughter resents this move, gets bratty, acts out. Dad has auto accident with daughter in car and has TBI. Son has authority to make life decisions about pulling dads plug. Daughter resents.

    As is typical for Picoult, each chapter is written from a different point of view, and the narrators vary in their ability. The dad, Luke, tells a good story. I didn't care for mom, Georgie, particularly. Cara and Edward, the children are pretty good.

    I wasn't bothered by the change in voice from chapter to chapter as I know that's Picoults style though others may find it difficult to deal with.

    It wasn't wonderful, but it was a thoughtfully written book about family situations none of us ever want to be a part of. Worth the credit but may appeal to women more than men.

    In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time.

    Story

    Ann Pachett, an author who is new to me, has written another wonderful, introspective novel which I found so enjoyable I dedicated a couple of days to listening instead of multi-tasking, which is my usual way of listening to audio books. I've only heard 2 of her novels-this and "Bel Canto" and, IMO, both are 5 star listen...I don't give out a lot of 5 stars because I think it takes a really unique book and reader combo to rate that high of a score.

    I've read some of the other reviews and, apparently, Pachett's writing does not apppeal to everyone. She is not an action oriented writer, instead she develops her characters fully and spends time weaving their inner thoughts, and dreams in the case of this story, with the plot. And, this plot is somewhat unusual in that one of the main protagonists is already dead and comes to the primary character in her dreams. It's a great interplay between living person and dream person. Additionally the personal relationships ae unusual. Still this story really pulled me in and kept me enthralled and I suspect I will be listening again to it soon.

    The story line is not complex, for anyone who has lost a loved one to unexpected death the feelings of the main protagonist will be familiar. The numb and vacant and feeling unwilling to get out are typical of a woman dealing with death of her husband. Pachett delves deeply into these feelings and those of husbands family, which she had never met until after husbands death. Additionally, the marriage is truly unique and requires the listener to understand that not all relationships are the same.

    I recommend the novel for those who don't need scary excitement in everything they read..this book is literature rather than a typical mass market book that gives thrills and chills. It does move slowly and is deeply involved in the thoughts and feelings of the family as they get to know each other.

    I did feel the ending abrupt-but so was the ending in "Bel Canto" so that might be part of Pachetts writing style.

    Story

    Dr. Jennifer White-Not Jenny and definitely not Jen as she eloquently says numerous times- is slowly losing her mind to dementia. This story, told entirely from the viewpoint of Jennifer White, with all her mental losses, is a wonderful but sad trek through the mind of a mother who cared more for her profession than her chidden.

    She finally must go live in a care home for the mentally deteriorating but has left a mystery behind her. Along with two adult children who never overcame the lack of mothers love they experienced and as a result have serious problems.

    This novel, narrated wonderfully by Jean Bahle-who really gives me the picture of haughty professor and superior surgeon in her reading-slowly moves through the downfall of Jennifer White and of her chidden, Mark and Fiona.

    Although the story does move slowly and was hard, at the start, to get in to I became more involved in it as time passed and towards the end I was completely enthralled by it. This isn't a book for someone looking for a lot of action in their plots but instead requires the listener to get to know Jennifer as her character is developed.

    As someone who is a peer of Dr Jennifer White, and who has had that missing car keys/forgotten appointment situation happen, I became very involved in the story as it progressed. This could happen to any of us as we age and it's not a pretty sight. LaPlante has taken this woman apart and put her fact together verbally for us to get to know. Do we like her? Trust her? And, finally, did she kill her friend as the police believe? Listen carefully to the details and see if you can figure out the end before you get there..I sure was surprised.

    "Oh please, not another abridged!!!"

    Overall

    Will you please stop featuring such appealing novels only available in abridged format? I am continually stumped as to why oh why anyone with a brain would even bother to read an abridged novel. Several times I have found on your site what promised to be a good read, but only available in the abridged version, and I have gone to the competition and rented the unabridged cassettes. Please stop the insanity!

    This was an amazing book. As a nurse I found the medical parts fascinating and the story was engrossing. The characters were well written and so REAL. The only negative on this book was the length. I did feel that it was a bit too long and could have had better editing, overall, however, it was absolutely one of the best books I have listened to in a long time!

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.
