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!
Typically Jodi Picoult's books end with a twist or a surprise. I am sad to say I had this figured out from early on.
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.
I like the use of different actors reading the different parts. Interesting story line.
Addicted to Audible!
I used to love Jodi's work but in the past few years I feel she has sacrIficed quallity for quantity. This book was interesting since I learned quite a bit about wolf packs.The moral dilemma and court case was typical of her books but at least this one had an original twist. After her last terrible book I had vowed to boycott her but in a weak moment I purchased this one. I was not disappointed - it wasn't her best but it did keep my interest.
I was hoping for more about wolves, less about humans. Clever underlying comparisons of humans and wolves at times. I was left wondering is the
No. I don't really want to send any friends into a state of depression
This book is ridiculous. Just plain silly. Take a pass. Read House Rules by same author. It is good.

This book went straight to the heart. The additional readers make it interesting and really help you to put yourself right there!
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.
I am a retired teacher who listens because she is vision impaired and can no longer read. I love history, a touch of fantasy, and mystery!
Two young adult siblings struggle with end of life decisions for their father. Normal family trauma. Normal legal battles. Some unusual characters.
