Don’t waste your money on a book with a hot topic issue as the actual storyline is confusing and lacks resolution.
I usually love Jodi Picoults books but I struggled with this one. I hated how it kept going chronologically in reverse and found myself groaning each time it went back an hour. I did appreciate the differing viewpoints on abortion which were thoughtful but the ending felt abrupt and unfinished, after so much back story I felt like the reader deserved a real ending and something more. Just not my favorite.
I was excited to read this book. Then I started reading it and it went backwards. I was lost and discombobulated by the layout. If I had to do it over again I would have read the book backwards.
This book sucked. I used to enjoy Jody Picoult books but they have really gone down hill. Won’t be buying any more. The book starts at almost the end and goes back in time then ends at the end but doesn’t tell how it end s for all parties involved.
Jodi Picoult is the only author I know that is willing to take on a subject that makes people uncomfortable and still deliver a great story! Her stories always make you think about the "what ifs" in life.
I usually love JP novels. I hated this one. Normally she writes objectively about a topic presenting both sides equally but not this time. Writing in reverse chronological order with a quick, unorganized ending that seems thrown together makes me very unhappy. No resolution for most of the characters just a mess. I want back the hours of my life I wasted reading this book.
Absolutely fantastic read!
