Deep End Of The Ocean Movie Tie In

by Jacquelyn Mitchard

New American Library | February 1, 1999 | Mass Market Paperbound

Deep End Of The Ocean Movie Tie In is rated 4.1111 out of 5 by 9.
"Watch your brother", says Beth Cappadora to her seven-year-old son, Vincent. She's checking in at her high school reunion in Chicago. Even with a hotel clerk who is, in Beth's estimation, slower than weight loss, it's not more than five minutes before she turns again and asks, "Where's Ben?" It's the moment every mother dreads. Three-year-old Ben is gone. And no one can find him. Despite a police search that will turn into a nation-wide obsession, Ben has vanished, seemingly without a trace. His disappearance will leave Beth frozen on a knife-edge of suppressed agony for nine years and drive a shattering wedge through her marriage to Pat - who, though he is a man of consummate kindness, can do nothing to bring his boy back. It will transform their other son, Vincent, into a delinquent who courts danger in an attempt to break the bell jar of silence that surrounds the whole Cappadora family. Then, just after the Cappadoras move back to Chicago to help start a family restaurant, something so unexpected happens, it changes everything that once seemed true or possible. And perhaps, only perhaps, it will give Beth what she thought was gone forever: a reason to live.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep End of the Ocean I thought that this book was very well written and worth the read. Jacquelyn wrote very well about the deep effects it can have on a family when a member goes missing. You share and feel loss, pain, fear, love, happiness, rewards, heartbreak, confusion, etc... All the emotions that each character goes through. I enjoyed this book and hope that you will as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible book.. This is the WORST book I have ever read. Poorly written, stupid plots and the characters were awful. Beth is the worst character I have ever read in literature. This book was a waste of my time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can never go back! "When you go out into the ocean," said Ben, "you cannot find the exact same way back to shore, because the footprints have been washed away." This is the basic theme of this heart-renching book: things can never be exactly as they were before. When Beth is reunited with her kidnapped son many years later, her struggle is magnified as she tries to get to know "Ben" as he was as a child. This mother soon realizes that she must get to know him as he is NOW, and that, once you go out to the ocean, they journey back is never the same.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok I found that this novel did not live up to its rave reviews. At times, the writing was confusing, and drawn out. Perhaps the novel would have impacted me more if I was a mother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Deep End of the Ocean Forget Stephen King and Dean Koontz, this is the most terrifying novel you will ever read. I think anyone who has told their children "wait here, I'll be right back" should read this book. It tells of a family torn apart by the disappearance of their youngest son. Mitchard focuses not just on the parents' grief but also on the devastating effect on the other children. Even their reunion ten years later is bittersweet, and you're never sure if this family is going to survive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frustrations A good suspense book but I was a little frustrated with it. The mother was annoying character who I wish would get a grip on life and the ending had no sense of closure. I was left longing for another chapter to complete the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very emotional I enjoyed reading this book and finished it in 2 days! By the middle of the book, I couldn't put it down! I highly recommend it! The emotions of the characters were very real. Especially in the very last chapter quoting, "I was the one...I was the one who let go of your hand." That just brought me to tears! (If you've read it, you'll understand!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Deep End of the Ocean Amazing. I could not put this book down, from start to finish. Very emotional - I had to stop reading it in public places because I was so often in tears. I didn't want it to end. Definitely worth reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! "The Deep end of the ocean" is an excellent, heart felt novel that comes highly recommended. When I first picked it up i did not know what I was in for, then i could not put it down. I finished the book in 2 days. This is one of the best books I have ever read.
