    "At first I felt like book was a bit derivative of some classics that shall go nameless but the more I thought about it the more interesting and unique I found this one. It's not a mystery its more of a journey and looking at it like that really made it work perfectly for me."

    "Jodi Picoult is very good at bringing together a wide cast of characters, which in itself makes for interesting reading. She treats her readers as adults as she tackles adult themes, but the writing is sharp and well-researched, so the result is as engaging as one would want. This one does get a bit dark, but then, so does real-life, and the writer's deft touch never makes things more unsettling than they need to be, and she never stoops to cheap tricks. This book finds the author at the peak of her powers. "

    "Story is okay if you can follow it. There's a lot of switching back and forth between perspectives and a non-linear plot. It has promise but could've used a little more refinement before publishing I think. I would give it a C+."

    "I must admit that I was rather unfamiliar with the author, despite her fame. The premise itself is intriguing, I will give it that. I found myself interested in it while I was reading, but not really fully immersed like I have been with other books of the genre. I'd go ahead and say to check this out if you are a fan of the author only."
