    "LOVED it"

    I'm a huge fan of Jodi Picault and was NOT disappointed with this. I thought the full cast narration was wonderful as well. This author keeps you constantly thinking and wondering who's side you're on. I loved it!

    "THOUGHT PROVOKING"

    AS USUAL JODI GETS YOU THINKING AND ASKING YOURSELF WHAT WOULD I DO.. THERE WAS TOO MUCH DETAILED AND SOMETIMES BORING DISCUSSION ON THE RELIGIOUS ISSUES HOWEVER I REALLY ENJOYED THE BOOK. DEFINITELY NOT MY FAVORITE THAT WOULD BE MY SISTERS KEEPER.

    "Absolutely thought provoking"

    Another wonderful and thought provoking book. Jodi, you've made me a life long reader of your books. You tackle a variety of issues in such a way, that I find myself questioning my own feelings about social issues. Thank you for that, it's good to not get stuck in a box.

    Thanks again,
    Maryola

    "Change of Heart"

    I am a big fan of Jodi Picoult and EVERY book she has written and I have read was a learning experience. Lots of research done here on Religion (Nosticism, Judism, and Catholicism)and inmates rights on deathrow in New Hampshire. Not her best but courtroom drama suprise ending! My favorite book of Jodi's is "Plain Truth" her first one. Out of all I have read, I give this a 4.

    "Enjoyed it!"

    Contemporary issues, vulnerable characters, avoidance of stereotypes, intriguing story, and good readers. I recommend it! I usually avoid "full cast" reads, but this was exceptionally well done. This was my first Picoult novel, and I look forward to reading or listening to more.

    "Another Great Picoult Novel"

    I really liked this Jodi Picoult novel. I have never read The Green Mile, so I don't know if the plot being too similar is true, but it was a great read. All of Picoult's novels, including this one, show that there is never a black and white opinion on anything important, in this case the death penalty.

    "typical Jodi - good"

    The book was typical Jodi Picoult and as usual she delivered her story well. It was a bit long and drawn out toward the end but definitely worth reading.

    "Worth the time"

    Jodi never fails to hook me into her books. This one is a good listen and gets you thinking about what you would do as a mom facing the same choice. I enjoyed that side of the story more than the 'Is he Him?' part. But- I did enjoy the book and recommend it.
