"Brilliant - but for home not travel…"
This is my first Jodie Picoult novel and I asked for it as a present as I had read a sample which I got for free on my kindle. That's the trouble with samples you want to see what happens next! The book alternates between viewpoints so you have to pay attention but it is not as confusing as some in this respect. It is well written and the characters are interesting with many facets to them, there is description - especially of the overseas bit - but just about the right amount. The book gradually unfolds the story and the ending is not what you would expect (at least not what I had guessed at). I was kept interested throughout and it has made me want to read more of her books. The reason I have put this for at home is that I have the hardback copy so it would be a bit impractical to carry around.
