Love it, love it, love it! Almost finished reading it, but wish it would go on and on. If you have an interest in wolves, nature and deep spirituality, as well as wanting a great read, go for this book. It won't disappoint.

I read this book whilst on holiday and found it very easy to read and completed it in a couple of days. I have read the majority of Jodi Picoult's books and do feel that the formula is beginning to get a little overused but it still doesn't stop me buying them as soon as they come out!

I am in awe of this author and I've read so many books by Jodi Picoult but this is my favourite of all time and I don't think anything will knock it off the pedestal I have put it on.

I love wolves and they are so misunderstood with such a bad and unfair reputation, they are magnificent I would give everything I own to have an opportunity to be surrounded by them.

This isn't my favourite just because it's about wolves. The time and effort Jodi put into this book to research the wolf is just incredible. I do know a lot about them and I have read so many books about wolves that I could understand (and agree) with what she was writing about and enjoy the story to the fullest,
I loved the characters and found myself getting frustrated, angry and upset. Even though I wanted a different ending it ended as it should have PERFECTLY IN TUNE WITH WHAT A WOLF WOULD HAVE CHOSEN TO DO.

KARRIE.

Its rare that I read a Jodi Picoult book that I don't enjoy but when I heard of the storyline, I did wonder whether I would enjoy reading so much about wolves. However the amount of research that was necessitated made for interesting reading and having these chapters narrated by Luke and hearing his voice throughout the book added an extra dimension. The book follows the usual JP formula but its one that seems to work.

Luke's estranged son, Edward, flies home from Thailand upon hearing from his mother Georgie about the accident involving his father and sister, Cara. Luke lies in a coma and Cara requires surgery for her injuries. Cara blames Edward for breaking up the family by running away 6 years previously and thus causing the subsequent divorce between Luke and Georgie. Georgie has now remarried and has a new family whereas Luke's family is Cara and the wolves that he looks after. As the story progresses you learn more about Luke and eventually the reason why Edward left so quickly. The antagonism that Cara feels towards Edward leads to a courtroom battle as who will have the right to become Luke's medical representative - Edward believes that his father wouldn't want to live whilst Cara is determined to keep her father alive at any cost. Cara came across as being quite immature in her reasoning and towards the end, we learn the truth of a secret she is hiding that is hinted at throughout the book.

I enjoyed reading this, it was interesting and I became engrossed in the story. It seems to have received a varied response by way of review but to my mind JP just writes a story so well and they are a pleasure to read.

As a big Jodi Picoult fan I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I have read all of her other novels and enjoyed them (barring `Songs of The Humpback Whale' which I found to be a bit bland), so it was safe to say that I was anticipating an excellent read here.

Picoult definitely doesn't disappoint in this excellent story of a fractured family, hidden secrets and a horrific moral dilemma faced by an estranged brother and sister. I loved every word- the characterisation was excellent, settings believable and it really does make you think what you would do if you ever found yourself in a similar situation.

The book revolves around Cara and her father Luke, both injured in a car accident that unfortunately leaves Luke on a ventilator with a practically nil chance of waking- and even if he does, chances are he will be brain damaged. As Luke was a famous naturalist who has integrated himself into wild wolf packs, his estranged son questions whether his father would ever want to live such a different way of life. Cara meanwhile is determined to prove that any life at all, is at least worth living...

As the book unfolds, family secrets are brought to the fore which only adds further drama to the proceedings. Chapters are told from alternate characters perspectives which really adds a sense of tension to the story, as well as a degree of empathy and understanding as to what the family are going through.

A fascinatingly beautiful book, strong in metaphor and well-researched - I adore Jodi Picoult's work.

Luke, a father of two has always felt more at home under the stars with his beloved wolf packs. He has spent his life researching these misunderstood animals and feels an affinity with them that he just doesn't get with humans.

When Luke finds himself in a coma in a vegetative state - his children Cara & Richard have to make a decision. Is this the life he would have wanted for himself? No longer able to be near his precious wolves? But how can they choose to let him die?

A wonderful read. Heavy with the Wolf metaphor - read between the lines there and it's actually very clever.
