    "Ridiculous plot but still a fun read"

    Picoult is such a good storyteller and her format of psychological/sociological study plus legal/courtroom drama is something I always enjoy. But this one was more formulaic than most, and the ending didn't make sense and one must totally suspend belief to even get through the story. Ridiculous fluff but still fun listening.

    "Not her best"

    Very slow story, not one of her better books.

    Story
    "Chapters"

    I don't like the way the chapters are divided. If you set the timer to stop when the chapter was done, it was often mid sentence. This was annoying. It's a great story but stopping in the middle of a sentence was irritating.

    "Biased perspective on spirituality"

    I've read nearly all of this authors books. I have enjoyed them all. However...This one bothered me.
    I. Im a spiritual person. I believe in God. But I am not religious. They are not connected, in my belief system. The Bible is a human creation. Its tied to religion. God doesn't belong to a religion. He communicates with us in ways we understand. So, if he were to speak to a 7 year old girl, one who had never been to church or seen a bible, why would he use Bible verses?
    2. This theme is a repeat of Change of Heart. Another of her books.

    "This one took me years to finish"

    This book just doesn't fall in line with a typical Jodi Picoult book for me. I've read or listened to every one of hers and I was determined to finish this one. I began reading it in print twice and didn't get very far. It's just painfully slow at first. And the main character Mariah is the weakest, whiniest character I've encountered in recent memory. As far as the narrators..eh..they were ok. Far from the worst but also not the best. One of them puts in not section pauses at all. I was constantly lost with the sudden shifts. Overall-just ok.

    "Keeps you wondering..."

    This was my first time reading Jodi Picoult, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I loved the way I could tell who was talking by the sound of the voice. Kept me wondering about the outcome. I liked how Mirah finds love, in the mist of all the pain. I also loved the support of her mother. Great book!

    Story
    "didn't enjoy the quality of the audio"

    there are two narrators who each have different ideas of the characters persona, which is very frustrating. i wish it was kept to one narrator. the chapters end/start in an inconsistent manner, which you would think is a minor detail, but was actually disruptive to the rhythm of the reading. story was OK/good, but performance was lacking.

    "Interesting but did need more research on Jesus."

    This book had some strange concepts. It had some happy moments but was mostly about her struggles.

    Story
    "Recorded poorly"

    The story is Picoult's usual fascinating plot, though the ending wasn't my favorite. The narrators were wonderful But the technology was miserable. One could hear when the narrator swallowed, sipped water, etc. That was very distracting. I think it should be re-recorded with a different technologist.
