Professional reviews

"Jodi Picoult's debut novel (1992)--a story of love, self-discovery, family crises, and trauma--is told from five points of view, a technique that makes it ideally suited to the audiobook format. While character identification at the start of each chapter is helpful in the print version, it becomes unnecessary in the audio as the ensemble voices are clearly distinguishable and the presenters quickly establish discernible identities. With each chapter there are not only shifts in viewpoint, but scene changes and flashbacks are also frequent. Here the skillful performances by the cast are most effective in allowing the listener to follow the action smoothly and maintain a connection with the characters. This first novel is enjoyable in its own right and should be particularly satisfying for Picoult fans. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
