  • Love Me
What happens if you find out that your father has kidnapped you and your mother is still alive? Can her father's one act erase all the years of love and trust that's embedded into a father-daughter relationship? This is the dilemma that Delia finds herself in.

The story is told from the points of view of Delia, her father, her fiance Eric, and her best friend Fitz. The premise is fascinating but unfortunately, the characters were not as finely etched. For one, I found the love triangle between Delia-Eric-and-Fitz infinitely tedious and a trifle unrealistic. Second, the resolution of the story (particularly a vital clue as to why her father kidnapped her) seemed a little too convenient. Third, the narration of the story (in first person points of view of so many characters) becomes trying after a point.

Not a bad read overall but I had expected something way better from Jodi Picoult.

Picot is a great novelist but not a fabulous one. She always leaves pretty obvious clues that "come out' more clearly at the end of the story. But her books are always great reads. Well done and complex enough and totally engaging to keep you not wanting to put the book down. They never disapoint.
  • Rleillin
I can't put her books down. Seriously! Picoult knows how to hook a reader and keep them turning pages. And her research and knowledge of her material is impressive. Hard life issues are her specialty. She is truly an amazing writer.

She brings her characters to life so vividly. I fell in love with her dad even though his actions are questionable. The love her father has for her is awesome. The friendship Delia has with Fitz and Eric is a great story, too. Picoult knows how to keep you guessing. I loved this story! On to the next...

This was an amazing book! It had so many twists and turns and an unexpected ending. Jodi Picoult is a great author and does an amazing job setting up the narrative and it really seems like she did her research about what she was writing about. I have read many of her novels, and I would recommend her novels to anyone.
  • Dorintrius
My least favorite Jodi Picoult book so far. I've loved everything she's written for the most part but this book left me hanging. I was waiting for something interesting to happen the whole time. The classic Picoult twist. But it never happened. This is just the story of a trial. Interesting, but I was expecting more.
  • Quinthy
I never really "got into" this book. Any time it seemed to be picking up and getting exciting, it'd immediately start to get boring again. The characters, with the exception of Andrew and Ruthann were irritating. I felt like a character who was desperate enough to kidnap, as Andrew was, deserved more depth. All of the Hopi Indian stories, though interesting, were completely unnecessary to the story and made it even more of an aggravating read. Same for the prison drama.

I'm bummed because I normally love Jodi Picoult's work and this sounded like a great story.
  • Tehn
Picoult always writes about fascinating people and develops complex plots which seem to be universal in their appeal. I don't care to write a synopsis of any book. I've read at least four of her books and rate none less than 4 stars. This is definitely worth your time is you enjoy characters who seem real and plots with clever twists
I will be thinking about this story for a long time. So many issues: legal, moral, personal, familial. These people felt very real to me, none of them perfect, all of them living their lives one day at a time. Their decisions affect others in a myriad of ways, some small, some overwhelming. As each character does the best they can at the time, the effects of their choices resonate through their their lives, and the lives of those they love. No good deed goes unpunished? Only time will tell.
