Paleo Schnauzer ,

I read exactly 58 pages and stopped to write this review

I don’t think I’ve ever written a review for a book I haven’t finished except in those cases where the book was so abysmally horrid I couldn’t finish it.

But in the sample there was a sentence that grabbed my heartstrings - the character described himself as seeing chain stretching across the Atlantic. I’m a genealogy buff, focused solely on the ancestry of my people. I too have chains, multiple links, stretching back past the civil war, the war of 1812 and the war that freed America from the tyranny of England. It in was that single sentence that I realizes Jodi Picoult had again reached into the mind of a reader. It’s like she knows me, my history and the 10 generations of family that have survived on American soil.

Sadly the story dragged on and on until it reached a very unsatisfactory conclusion which lacked closure.

Mercy

I've read most of Jodi Picoult's books and this was so so. It just didn't seem to connect or really pick up. I thought the story line was great it just literally dragged and I'm sorry but the ending was like "what really" that's it. I felt like it needed to be tied up better at the end. It was almost like the author was alike I'm done!!

Her worst book ever.

It was like pulling teeth getting through this one. Love all of her books but I feel like I wasted 14.99 on this one.
