Publisher's Summary

The Hartes and the Golds have been neighbors for 18 years and are very close. So when Chris and Emily's friendship reaches the next level, nobody is surprised. Then one night, the hospital calls. Seventeen-year-old Emily is dead - shot in the head by a gun Chris took from his father's cabinet. One bullet remains in the chamber, and Chris tells of his suicide pact with Emily. But the police have questions, and soon Chris is on trial for murder.

    "Waste of Time!"

    Wanted to give up half way through the story, but decided to hang in there, hoping it would eventually get better. Sadly though, it never really did. This book definitely does not measure up to The Storyteller nor to My Sister's Keeper. There is no character development, and the plot is hard to believe. Also, I kept waiting for a twist of some sort, but that too never happened. Important choices made by the central characters were never adequately explained. As for the narration, wish that someone else, probably younger sounding than George Guidall, had instead performed the story, because his voice truly did not fit the parts, especially those of Christopher and Emily. Going to return this audiobook now, and get back my credit.

    "Love this author's work"

    It is a little slow in parts, but it is worth the read. I enjoyed getting to know the characters.

    "Excellent!!!"

    I don't quite understand how a story could make me so cry so much and I was still sad when it finished. Ms Picoult expresses her characters' feelings so realistically. The narration from Mr Guidall is once again superb!

    I highly recommend this story but be prepared to cry. 😉

    "Sad"

    Very sad story but I enjoyed the performance. I did feel a connection to the characters and that's important to me.

    "Not the usual"

    Once again Jodi Picoult has kept me engaged to the last word. It as the excellent plot and not knowing the truth until the very end. However, for me, there was entirely too much sex!! Not usual for Picoult. Waaay too much.

    Jodi Picoult is my favorite author. Just when you think you have picked a side she opens your eyes and heart to the other side.

    "Non-spoiler alert"

    I can't really spoil this book for readers of this review because I listened to the bitter end and still don't have a clue.

    Like others, this book follows a formula, but I keep reading Ms Picoult's books because I enjoy her writing. Unlike other of her books, this one leaves us hanging. Why did Emily feel so dirty? What was the big secret she couldn't share with Chris? Why was it so bad that she felt like giving up her life? And why did the jury make the decision it did? LOOSE ENDS
