Book Review of Mercy

Author: Jodi Picoult
Genre: Literature & Fiction

A swing and a miss from Picoult, whose novels I usually like.

This one was just too sappy for my taste, borrowing liberally from "The Bridges of Madison County" (which I really hated) and letting that co-plot vitiate what might have been a sensitive and thoughtful look at the subject of mercy-killing.
