I ABSOLUTELY love this book. It is the kind of book that I will pick up every now and then to read again.
It sounds as though it might be a fluffy read, considering it is told from the family dogs perspective, but it is deep and thought provoking.
This is not a book meant only for dog lovers, its for everyone. I strongly recommend!

I loved most of this book...there were a few chapters I could have done without that just dragged on. There is a lot of history about Iowa in this book, which is fine, I just didn't anticipate it to have as much history as it did.

I love this book. I laughed (out loud most of the time) and cried quite a few times.

My very first "chick lit" book, I loved it. I read the first four chapters before I bought it because I wasn't sure about it, but after reading a bit I knew it would be worthwhile.

I thought this book was very good but I think it would have been better for me if I had not heard so many people rave about it. My expectations are always too high when people do that.

Great book!
Realistic but not completely predictable.
I enjoyed this even more than My Sisters Keeper, probably because there was a lot of hype building up my sisters keeper.
Nineteen minutes reminds you how awful high school can be, no matter what your social status is.

This was my first Jodi Picoult book.
I thought it was excellent. It was also very eye opening into the world of teenagers, even if though that is not the main concept of the book.
I have read My Sisters Keeper and Nineteen Minutes and I would rank this up there with those. (Or maybe thats just my bias since this was my first Picoult book)
