I struggled with this book. I understand the premise of this book, but at the same time, I just couldn't see myself in the position that the main character found himself him. Yes, I was moved during reading parts of this book, but at the same time I felt vaguely unsatisfied with it. I just didn't buy into the main characters reasons for what he did. They didn't seem believable to me. So, I would hesitatingly recommend this book.

Haunting....Jodi Picoult is genius at writing about the deepest and darkest emotions. Don't be fooled by the title, this is not some fluffy love story.

The second of Picoult's books that I read, the first being the excellent My Sister's Keeper. She does a great job portraying families in crisis, and also making the court cases convincing, so you wonder whose side is really right. The characters were well-drawn, though there were some predictable elements, and I do wish there had been some more flashbacks to Emily and Chris' youth. Overall, though, a wonderful book.

I would suggest "The Pact: A Love Story" to anyone who enjoys a mystery & love story intertwined...Ms. Picoult really captured the love between two people and developed the characters in the book so that I felt as if I knew them personally.

This was the first of Jodi Picoult's book I read, and it won't be the last. From the beginning I was hooked on her writing style and ended up ordering and placing all of her books on my wish list.

The Pact is a beautifully haunting story about true love and what one will do for love. It kept me guessing till the very end, a real page turner. The ending isn't quite the way I would have wanted however, maybe she will have a sequel. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. I really, really loved it!

This story had so much. Characters you could relate to, relationships you could see change, a horrible situation, and a tragedy that was very real in today's world. Jodi Picoult is a one-of-a-kind author who has a true gift for portraying emotions that leaves you thinking long after the last page.
