Lone Wolf | [Jodi Picoult]

Lone Wolf

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.

Publisher's Summary

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. In many ways, Luke understands wolf dynamics better than those of his own family. His wife, Georgie, has left him, finally giving up on their lonely marriage. His son, Edward, twenty-four, fled six years ago, leaving behind a shattered relationship with his father. Edward understands that some things cannot be fixed, though memories of his domineering father still inflict pain. Then comes a frantic phone call: Luke has been gravely injured in a car accident with Edward’s younger sister, Cara. Suddenly everything changes: Edward must return home to face the father he walked out on at age eighteen. He and Cara have to decide their father’s fate together. Though there’s no easy answer, questions abound: What secrets have Edward and his sister kept from each other? What hidden motives inform their need to let their father die . . . or to try to keep him alive? What would Luke himself want? How can any family member make such a decision in the face of guilt, pain, or both? And most importantly, to what extent have they all forgotten what a wolf never forgets: that each member of a pack needs the others, and that sometimes survival means sacrifice?

    "Unexpected Moving Interesting"

    Wonderfull readers!
    Loved to be educated into the ways of these animals in such a way
    Also moving is the eternal controversial theme of euthanasia
    Resuming, this is a very good mixed story

    Story
    "Another great book from Jodi Picoult"
    If you could sum up Lone Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    family, caring, wolves


    What did you like best about this story?

    I especially liked the interaction of Dad with the wolves and how he integrated into the pack.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Can't make a difference, all Jodi Picoult's books are thought provoking.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Could have listened to this book in all one sitting, but unfortunately it was too long.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to Jodi's next book on Audible.

    Story
    "I thoroughly enjoyed this book"
    If you could sum up Lone Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    alot of depth


    What other book might you compare Lone Wolf to and why?

    I don't think I've ever read a book quite like this one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the ending, I did not think it was a predictable ending. There was an element of surprise for me. I thought the book was informative about wolves and their lifestyle, and I liked hearing the book from the vantage point of each character. That is something that I think Jodi does well in alot of her books, tell the story in the first person for each character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no, I enjoyed listening to it each day as I shoveled snow, about an hour each day.

    Story
    "Enjoyed it suprisingly!!!!"
    What did you love best about Lone Wolf?

    I enjoyed learning about Luke's character and what drove his love of wolves.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lone Wolf?

    Can't say without spoiling the book but there were a few shockers.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Luke's enthuasim as he talked about the wolves.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but I enjoyed reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book as a book club selection. I was not excited to read it after reading the reviews (which were all over the place). Once I got into the book, I really enjoyed the family dynamics and couldn't wait to learn the outcome of the book. Luke was a piece of work!!!!

    Story
    "Very interesting"

    The book switches from one person to another, each with a different narrator. I enjoyed that a lot. The story, especially the wolf facts, kept me interested. This is my second Jodi Picoult novel. Like the other one, it is family drama, a court room scene, and a secret being kept until the end.

    "Excellent"
    Would you listen to Lone Wolf again? Why?

    If Jodi Picoult wrote it I'll read it. Her books always contain an ethical / moral issue with no clear right and wrong in the story. Plus in this one you'll learn how wonderful and fascintating wolves are.

    Story
    "Another hit for Picoult!"
    If you could sum up Lone Wolf in three words, what would they be?

    Another story by Picoult that explores the ethical and moral issues
    families face when faced with a traumatic brain injury and brain death in a loved one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think Edward was my favorite character because he made some wrong decisions but in the end he matured and fought to make the right decision for the right reason.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the various narrators were excellent!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book was moving but the stories about the wolf pack and wolf behavior were fascinating.

    Story
    "Chick book??"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Must have been a chick book because I never got it. The man went on and on about how important the pack was but he seemed to care more about the pack he lived with for 6 months than his family/"pack" that he lived with for 15 years??? I'm sorry but I don't get it.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrators' performances were fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    confusion - see above
