An interesting story, but not the author's best
Good, but not one of Picoult's best.
I have listened to a lot of Jodi Picoult's books and this is easily the most disappointing. It wouldn't put me off listening to more books by her though, as I know she can and does do better.
I'm going to try 'The Storyteller' next as it has excellent reviews.
She keeps the book evenly paced (her Scottish accent is very comical as it's so bad - you wouldn't get that in the book!)
This is not representative of Picoult's work so don't let it put you off her as an author if it's your first experience of her. The plot is confused, the two storylines don't mix well and it's hard to like or care about any of the characters. I did listen to the whole thing but was glad when it was finished. Usually I think about Picoult's books long after I've finished them, this one, I was happy to leave behind.
