"Ms. Picoult is a solid, lively storyteller." (The New York Times)
This is one of my least favorite Jodi Picoult novels. It's not bad, I just couldn't quite get into the story and it seemed a little dumb really. I didn't get why her father just didn't go to the police in the first place. Kinda made the rest of the story seem a bit pointless.
I like that there is a different voice per character in the book.
I am a native Arizonan and a little familiar with the jail system and how we pronounce the some words here. It's really annoying for me to hear Saguaro with a hard
I put this right up there with Jodi's other hits. She pulls you in with her characters and her story line and keeps you engaged until the end. I highly recommend this book if you like this author's style, it won't disappoint you.
I enjoyed listening to this book although during parts of the book I felt did not add to the story or was unsure what the purpose of it. For example, the discussion on how to make Meth. Overall, good story.
This Jodi book was better than a few of her others I've listened to. Good story, very realistic, likeable characters, and a few unexpected twists. Parts of the story seemed to be somewhat irrelevant/awkward/out of place, but overall, not bad. A calm, minimally-engaging listen, best enjoyed by someone who has had a long day and just wants to unwind without being very mentally stimulated.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was really well written with slight surprises all the way through. Well read too.
I've recently discovered Picoult and I this is my third book. I really enjoyed it and found myself looking forward to being in the car so I could listen to my book!
