The only thing I could not get my head around here was Emily's depression. I found the fact that she begged Chris to help her commit suicide selfish - regardless of their relationship. I just couldn't grasp the fact that Chris would put Emily before anything yet Emily evidently wasn't willing to bear Chris in mind with the whole 'suicide' idea.
Despite that - a fantastic, compelling read.
What starts off as a childhood friendship between neighbours Chris Harte and Emily Gold develops into a mature teen romance, but maybe not as idyllic as it seems. There is a deep mutual love between them, but some other more complex and complicated emotions on both their parts.
The story develops in dual time-line, through the history of the Harte and Gold families and in their present, in which Emily is dead and Chris is a suspect. The legal side is both accurate and gripping, and the story pulled me in. I stayed up till silly-o’clock to finish the last section because I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended.
I didn't want this to end and would love an epilogue of ten years time, just to stop me wondering.
I can safely say that I will recommend Picoult to anyone that will listen to me.
The story line kept me wanting to come back for more. The way it was written - then and now made the story come to life even more. Once I got to the main chunk of the story I couldn't put it down! I wanted to know what was going to happen to Chris.
I'm a sucker for a love story and this was like nothing I had read before. For me it felt more real - looking into the issues people go through in life, how this effects us and how we turn to that one person for help. The twist (I wont spoil it) was brilliant - I sort of expected it, as it was one of the 'what could have happened' ideas on my list but I was still surprised.
I fell in love with the characters pretty much straight away. For me, if I don't like the characters or cannot connect, I cannot get into the book.
This is my first review, so its not the most in depth - however if you want a story that you cannot put down then this is the book for you.
