Publisher's Summary

To the outside world, they seem to have it all. Cassie Barrett, a renowned anthropologist, and Alex Rivers, one of Hollywood's hottest actors, met on the set of a motion picture in Africa. They shared childhood tales, toasted the future, and declared their love in a fairy-tale wedding. But when they return to California, something alters the picture of their perfect marriage. A frightening pattern is taking shape - a cycle of hurt, denial, and promises, thinly veiled by glamour.

Torn between fear and something that resembles love, Cassie wrestles with questions she never dreamed she would face: How can she leave? Then again, how can she stay?

    Story
    "Disappointed ending"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I like the book and would recommend it to someone (and in fact did).


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I did not feel like the stories between the 3 main characters fully developed.


    Was Picture Perfect worth the listening time?

    I was so disappointed by the ending. The other books by her that I have read have had suspenseful and eventful endings. But this one just ended. Because of this, I do not think it was worth the listen.

    Story
    "Not my favorite"

    I have been a fan of Jodi Picoult for quite some time. This book, though, I have to say was not a favorite. I think the narrators did a great job, but the story was kind of choppy. Usually her characters are so well developed, but they are lacking in this book. It's okay, but not fulfilling.

    "Story was everywhere."

    Had a hard time keeping up the with stories going back and forth. I would have like to have more of Cassie and Will romance. No I wouldn't recommend thus book.

    Story
    "So so so boring"

    I had heard that this was a great author and so I read her recent book" small great things" and it was really good so I tried to read a few more. I hated the depressing book about elephants so I thought I would try one more and I could not even make it a quarter way through this book because it was so incredibly dull. Zzzzzzzzzzz

    Story
    "Looking for a Jodi Picoult novel? Skip this one!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone not looking for well-crafted characters and a can't stop reading story typical of this author.


    Has Picture Perfect turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I've enjoyed all of Jodi Picoult's books, except this one.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was just OK.


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

    Disappointment. The characters, in particular, were very disappointing. Cassie and Alex, specifically, were awful. Their relationship was silly and unbelievable.

    Story
    "Not what I expected- in a good sense"

    I have read a few of Jodi Picoult's novels before, but this story kept me on the edge of my seat. I liked that it went back and forth a few times between the male and female narrators.

    "Not a typical Jodi Picoult"

    I liked the story but it was a bit predictable and long. I think the ending was a bit disappointing as well.

    Story
    "I cannot believe this book was written by Jodi P"
    What would have made Picture Perfect better?

    It was terrible from the start. I have loved all of her other books this not so much! I couldn't wait for it to be over.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure, something with more substance I hope.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Neither helped or hindered.
