Product Description

Review

Praise for Jodi Picoult -- : 'Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it. -- Daily Mail 'Impossible to put down and stayed in my mind long after I had finished' -- Observer 'Superb, many-stranded, and grimly topical' -- The Times 'Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution ... A challenging and clever read' -- Sunday Express 20080413 'Dark, serious books that explore family relationships and scary moral dilemmas involving religion, crime and politics' -- Heat 20080419 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

As a Jodi Picoult fan, I found this book as per usual riveting. The "controversy" and the "conflict between family characters" although cliche now was still entertaining and had me reading.
The ending though was stupid. I actually rolled my eyes and threw the book down. Come on Jodi- we fans deserve a little more credit. Stop being so predictable and lame. I think I read my last Jodi Picoult book. I'm done.

Format: Paperback
I think that it is the first book that I read by this author. I found it very touching, sad, interesting, enlightening and informative...It tells the story of a family who has a child who is born with osteogenesis imperfecta (aka, brittle bone disease). When the little girl is about 6 years old, a law firm mentions to the parents that they could pursue a tort law suit and possibly get a huge malpractice settlement that could help them take care of their daughter's special needs. It deals with the concept of wrongful birth and brings up the ethical issues associated with abortion and ending a pregnancy when a fetus shows disabilities. This is a very well written book. And, even though the topic is serious and sad, the author manages to make it engaging by making the various characters talk directly to the little girl as if the reader was her. It's really interesting to see how the family members deal with the situation and with one another (and those that surround them). We see it from the point of view of the father, the mother, her sister (who feels ignored) and the OB-GYN who is also a family friend. It was really well put together and there is a very surprising twist at the end. It's a very thoughtful book, one which forces you to consider your own values and makes you reflect on your own relationships and lifestyle. I give it 5/5 stars (excellent).

Format: Paperback
I've come to expect a lot from Jodi Picoult, but this one let me down. The focus on the book wasn't on the illness, or whose life is worth living. The focus was on a choice that wasn't given to the mother (not whether she would have chosen to abort), and how the lawsuit was interpreted by her family.
Very interesting read, and brings up some interesting issues (but then avoids them). I hated the ending.

After hearing good things about her, I read my first Picoult book. She doesn't disappoint. I loved it! "Handle With Care" is written so you move through a great plot line from different, well developed POVs, so you really get to know the characters. And she grabs your attention and desire to read on right from the get go. I'd recommend this book to anyone.

Not her best work though she is a master at moral dilemmas and this had quite a twist to it. I get tired of the anger between the characters and the "poor me" aspect of looking after a handicapped child. I've not experienced that with people I know who sacrifice much for their children with grace and even joy.

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. The story of a family with a differently-abled daughter, I found the book very touching, very thought-provoking. It is the type of book which you read, finish, put down & then think about for a long time before you can begin to read another book. Well done!

Difficult to rate. Well written with engrossing characters as we have always come to expect from picoult. Yet once again, (as in my sisters keeper) the ending she chooses for her characters trivializes the entire book and renders it pointless. A one time read for me.

What in the heck just happened? As someone who has read the majority of Picoult's novels, I was very interested throughout the entire story. And then all of a sudden I turned the page and the book was finished? What?! I literally looked around, mouth agape.
