Rated 3 out of 5 by from I feel decieved My initial thoughts were that this was a fantastically written book, with such an original storyline. That is until I read the book "the man who lives with wolves". Then I though " isn't plagiarism illegal?", and "one day I'm going to take a little known book, tweak a few paragraphs, make it my own, and become a millionaire author". Well done Jodi, who'd of thought it could be that easy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lone Wolf This book was so good. As most of Jodi Picoult books are, they make you think and take real life situations based on fictional characters. Just another one to add to the "must read" list.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kept me interested I found the Luke chapters really repeated themselves far too much, we know that a wolf will do anything for the family, blah blah. It was still a good read and as always, Jodi does a good job of telling the story from different angles. I hesitated between 3-4 stars only because she has better books, but if it weren't a Jodi Picoult it may warranted a 4...I hold her to high standards she has created:) I pretty much know I will like anything of hers:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! An amazing look at the intricacies of human vs wolf family dynamics. An indepth conversation about the horrors a divided family faces with a question of mercy vs keeping a loved one alive for your own reasons. Well written, fast flowing, I couldn't put it down.
