This book was so powerful. Jodi Picoult has the power to evoke so many feelings relating to her stories. Throughout reading this, I found myself angry, heart-broken and relieved at different moments. This book had me questioning what I would do in the same situation. It is amazing how accurate she is able to capture the human condition and how one event can create a domino effect into the rest of your life. A very good read. I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a book that will provoke you to question your own ethical dilemmas.
The pace of "Perfect Match" was good, and the narrative structure interesting and useful as a way to share the perspectives of the family members dealing with the great horror and sadness of the abuse. I found the characters believable and although many people wouldn't agree with Nina taking the law into her own hands, this is what made this such a good book. A little predictable in the beginning, but just when I thought I had it figured out, Picoult proved me wrong! The various surprises sprinkled throughout the book add to its depth and mystery.
I stopped reading very early on. The subject matter is just too much. I love Jodi Piccoult books and thought I would like this one as I have all the others, child sexual abuse stories are not stories to be read for leisure and I read for pleasure, this just could not be considered that. If you can handle this subject matter then I am sure you will like it.
This book deals with the emotional and ethical issues of child molestation and how one family dealt with this. What a great book. I recently found this author and plan to read each of her books.
One of my favorites from my favorite author. A story about one of every parent's nightmare, and of how tragedy can effect every other relationship. Couldn't put it down.
