This is a sometimes sad, but always entertaining book on people who are "different" in anyway. I loved it. GinaK

Well, this was a strange book. A bit unbelievable in its entirety.. and the liberties that were taken with the feral child myth bordered on the ridiculous. The ending was not satisfactory. Overall, it was not a terrible book, it was entertaining and a fast read, but the characters' motivations fell flat and that spark of life was missing from them to make it a more enjoyable story.

Alice Hoffman is one of my favorite writers. This book lives up to Hoffman's previous sucesses. What I liked about Second Nature was the character development and relationship among the characters. The book does not have anything to do with witchcraft but the characters do have the ability to sense things about others, get a feeling about what will happen. Their insights are way beyond my own. The story concerns a man who was the sole survivor of a plane crash when he was a small child, raised among the wolves. Returned to society as an adult, his insights and discomforts as well as human feelings he cannot avoid are the focus of the story. I recommend this book to all who are looking for a good read.
