I must admit, I am a fan!
This is Book Number 2 I am reading of Jodi Picoult and I was putting down my knitting (If that doesn't say it all, I don't know what does!) to find time to read this book.
The author is very talented and writes her novels extremely well.
Her books are filled with suspense and keep the reader captivated and on their toes, for me that is the ideal reading material....
The only thing I would have to knock was the very end of the book, I know that isn't a very good sign (and I do hope it won't put you off reading it) but I just thought the end of the book was completely unexpected and I would've appreciated it more, had there been some subtle indications of the ending through the book which would have not lead the ending to be so utterly surprising and almost out of place, even though it was dealing with the topics touched upon throughout the book, it did leave me feeling a little disappointed.
Have you read this book?
What are your thoughts on the end, did I miss something?
I would love to hear from you all.
