I will no longer automatically choose a book from Jodi Picoult. The characters were uninteresting and predictable. I found the whole book tiresome and the narrator's attempt to duplicate a Jewish accent fell far short of the mark. Boring!
The Power of the Dog is a hard-hitting novel that successfully blends a wide variety of characters and locations into a comprehensive story of the drug trade. It moves quickly and despite its length is not tiresome. The violence in Central America, the drug trade, the earthquake in Mexico and other parts of the storyline read like yesterdays newspaper stories adding credibility to an already believeable novel.
