An infuriating waste of a credit

I usually enjoy Jodi Picoult, but I can't finish this one. It's tedious. The author goes round and round the issue of abortion until I want to scream--enough already! I'm not even tempted to fast-forward to see who gets out alive and who doesn't--it's that annoying.

An infuriatingly foolish tale told by a weak, stupid woman. The story line lacks credibility--no one could be that much of an idiot. The only saving grace is the narrator.

Meh

Great story line, which kept me interested, but I almost wondered if the author was being paid by the word, as there was much repetition and pontification throughout. Not for anyone with a weak stomach, as there are several violent scenes, which contain graphic details.

There were so many concurrent stories that I never tired of this book, despite its length. Well written and well narrated.

Returned before finishing

Narration was great, but the plot was slow moving, and the story line was just depressing.

Predictable

After enjoying many Dismas Hardy novels, I found this one to be tiresome and predictable. Time for Dismas to retire.
