I like Joe - his head and heart are in the right place, and who doesn't need to have a lawyer in the family?
The ensemble narration underscored the personal and intersecting perspectives and individual motivations.
Luke, of course was the most memorable character for me. I can picture him with blood on his face, and imagine what he must have looked like as he emerged from the Canadian forest after 2 years in the wild.
For Jodi Picoult fans, this book doesn't disappoint. No preaching, but a very interesting observation into wolf pack behavior and end of life decisions; likely two things you never thought you'd say in the same sentence. The process of contradiction, compromise and truth telling (something most families will have to face at some point) was heart wrenching at times. Awesome story - I enjoyed every minute!
I had just a little trouble keeping track of the charactors as the narrative switched from one's thoughts to the others, but throughly enjoyed the book.
This book is ridiculous. Just plain silly. Take a pass. Read House Rules by same author. It is good.
Save your credit or your money because this one is not worth it. I have never been so bored with an audio book. This just goes on and on and gets nowhere. Separate narrator for each character doesn't help this at all. Each one tells their story but none of them are very interesting and they just go on and on until you want to get out the spork and finish it. I jumped the gun and used my credit for this book because I have listened to other Jodi Picoult books and liked them.
What a waste. Can a person die of boredom? I have to go check my pulse.
Not sure what genre this is. Is there a just plan bad genre.
None of the narrators seem to hit the right note for their characters.
maybe will decide when I finish
only heard part
only heard part
only heard part so far good
I must say, I didn't like the last book (Sing You Home) and started this one with some trepidation. No worries; JP is back as before. Her plots always have so many thoughtful elements -- very gestalt -- and with that one exception have always been a satisfying story. I have to say that I really didn't have much interest in wolves before listening to this book, but now they fascinate me. The way that JP wove wolf packs, families, misfits, reconciliation, alienation and end of life issues was truly wonderful. Enjoy!
