I've read this novel at least 3 times, and i still find it to be amazing! Something touched me with this novel, and i think if you give it a try it can really reallly make an impact on you. It's about finding life, and living it, and falling love!
I Ended up getting this book from the apps store for $19.99. I really enjoy listening, but prices have got to come down.

The novel is good, and I am a big fan of Picoult. However, unlike the other audiobooks I have heard in the past, this one has one reader that takes the joy out of listening to an audiobook. The lady who is reading for Rebecca appears to be a poetry-reader instead of prose reader. She pauses between sentences like one would pause for a comma instead of a period. She sing-songs sentences as if they were all some disjointed part of a defunct poem. As one of the MAIN characters in the book, this was very annoying and disappointing. And... extremely distracting.
