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?

    Would you listen to Lone Wolf again? Why?

    I like the use of different actors reading the different parts. Interesting story line.

    "Better than her last book"

    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.

    What did you like best about Lone Wolf? What did you like least?

    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


    Would you recommend Lone Wolf to your friends? Why or why not?

    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.

    "Wolves Ruined it for me!"

    I am now and always will be a fan of Jodi Picoult's. I have read almost all her books. Jodi definitely uses a formula. There is usually a moral dilemma, a trial and a lesson to learn. Even if I can predict the outcome, I always gain something from her books. Lone Wolf didn't let me down that way.

    However, this was not one of my favorites. I resented all the "education" about wolves. I don't care about wolves and I don't want to read or hear about them. I appreciated what she was doing, but I wanted to fast forward through the wolf lessons. Please stick to people, Jodi!

    "Borrring!"
    What would have made Lone Wolf better?

    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.


    Has Lone Wolf turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not sure what genre this is. Is there a just plan bad genre.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    None of the narrators seem to hit the right note for their characters.

    "beautifully woven story"

    I am always blown away by Jodi Picoult's books, and this was no exception. The way the wolf facts are tied in to the story is gorgeous and artful, as is the way she plays with the darker sides of human nature while still grating lovable characters.

    My one big complaint is that I was very disappointed with the narrator for Georgie. Much of her narration (especially dialogue, and even more specifically male dialogue) was very over done to the point of being comical while trying to express very serious things. The other narrators did excellent jobs, however, and the book was overall easy to listen to.

    "Not up to par"

    I expected so much more from this author. I have read countless books of hers and this one was the first that just didn't do it for me.
