This novel starts with an interesting premise: exactly who you are, and how your world is shaped by "who" you truly are. It is a story about Jonah, Loomis, Troy, Nora and how their lives are inexorably tied together. Each has a story to tell and you get to know each person well. It leaves you a bit melancholy when it's over; I'd say it's just an okay read.

Very interesting story - different than anything else I've read in a while. The book can be sad, heartbreaking, and hopeful. I recommend it.

I read this and kept waiting for some big revelation or plot twist, but truly nothing really happened. It was an interesting read and plays on the issues of choice, fate and circumstance, because of the adoptive situation in the book, but didn't really seem to "move" anywhere.

This book is very engaging - a real page turner. I found it to be a little disturbing and very sad, as some of the characters were just so damaged. I was interested in their fates until the very end.
