Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and Sad I thought the tone of this book, was along the lines of i have lost my father, but the wolves look out for him. I became enthralled with how we look at wolves. the life of a wolf, and his Alpha. For me this book brought back a life of not having a lot. But the love of your father and what he does for a living. I think this book is something magical. You saw life from the perspective of the daughter who lost, as well as the wolves who lost. Can't stop reading it!

Rated out of 5 by from I loved this book. It prompted me to buy Shaun Ellis's book The Man Who lived with Wolves" and brought me to a new understanding of those most elusive creatures (wolves) but it was also an interesting story too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing as always! Just like all Jodi Picoult's novels, they all test the strength of a family, between parents and siblings. This novel is just like that, battles between the brother/sister and mom/step dad. You see what the siblings go through, from hatred to respect for each other, how they slowly start to open up to each other after so many years. I really enjoyed this book, just like all her others. Check it out!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Threw it in the recycle bin today.... This book was a SAD attempt to give us something new. It was very formula Picoult. The ending was evident by the end of the first chapter. I am very disappointed - I am a loyal fan and have read all the books....this by far was the BIGGEST waste of time and money. BHAA!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Winner for Jodi Picoult Jodi Picoult has another winner here. This time she writes about a family's experience dealing with end-of-life issues. I don't think this is her best work, preferring My Sister's Keeper and House Rules, but she deals with the multiple issues in this book with her usual skill. I find that she always does her research when writing her novels and always deals with sensitive issues with such skill. You learn quite a bit about the behaviour of wolves in this books and how close to human behaviour they really are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Teffific Book! I couldn't put this book down! I can only imagine how much research Jodi Picoult needed to do in order to create a story involving brain injuries and wolf characteristics and habits - and sound plausible! I highly recommend this novel, whether you're a fan of Picoult's books or not. I think this is one of her best. My way of telling a good story is often whether I care deeply about the characters and what happens to them. Believe me, I did care. Enough to need a kleenex box. Caroline

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another good read Her books are becoming a bit "formula" but I can't seem to get enough of them. Brother and sister fight, in court as usual, over guardianship of their brain-damaged and comatose father. One wants to pull the plug, the other can't bear to let him go. I had a hard time putting this one down and would recommend it as a good read. The insight into wolf behavior is a bonus.
