Book Review: "Lone Wolf" by Jodi Picoult
Picoult is known for writing novels that examine moral dilemmas and tug at your heartstrings. This is no exception. Here we look at both sides of the euthanasia debate, and throw in some other emotional battles and family dynamics as well. Even as one who already knows where my heart lies on this issues, Picoult allows appreciation for the other side of the argument. Entangled with the present situation, we also get to see snippets from Luke's life as told from his part of view. These were interesting, but probably my least liked part of it all. It also didn't help that these pages were made to look rustic around the edges, which I found creepy and thought it looked like mold. Ew. All told, this book is classic Picoult, and if you've read her before then you know exactly what to expect. While I did not enjoy this as much as some others, it certainly will make you think and will provoke great discussion for book clubs.
