So dark and unsettling, as Picoult novels always are, but a page turner that keeps you up ALL NIGHT. ( )
  SarahStir | Oct 23, 2022 |
Back when I was still working, Jodi Picoult was popular with our library patrons, so I figured I should give one of her books a try. I chose this one because one of the main characters -- the father -- was a comic book creator and I love omic books. So I bought the book and somehow never got around to reading it. Until now, a decde or so later.

The plot revolves around Daniel Stone, a comic book artist working on writing ann original comic based on Dante's levels of Hell, a subject his college professor wife teaches. A work-from-home parent, he has a strong bond with their 14-year-old daughter, Trixie. Life seems perfect until Trixie tells her father her older boyfriend raped her. From there, things spiral out of control

What once seemed perfect reveals itself to be full of lies and deceptions, all with consequences, from the aftermath of the rape accusation to Daniel's wife's infidelity. Slowly, Picoult peels back the layers until the truths are revealed. There are plot twists, some I figured out and some that surprised me, but this isn't a traditional mystery. It's more a look at a family that seems perfect until the family members are forced by circumstances to look more closely.

I could say more about the characters -- the blurb certainly does -- but the only other thing I'll mention is the comic book within the book, as Picoult got an artist to illustrate pages of Daniel's story of a man literally going to Hell to save his daughter, a knowing nod at life imitating art, fictional though both may be. That, and Picoult's easy prose that makes this a fast, compelling read. ( )

This is a review I wrote in 2007:

Essentially a story of a family that has become dysfunctional almost overnight. Without spoiling the plot, mum Laura, a university professor, hasn't been paying close attention to family life at home, dad Daniel has secrets from his past, and their daughter, 14-year-old Trixie comes home in the early hours of the morning and confesses to her dad that she's been raped.... more revelations follow.

For a Picoult novel, this one is particularly harrowing (given the subject). Although all her novels are deep and disturbing this one I have found the most difficult to read in terms of subject. However, she writes as well as ever and her style of writing makes the book a compulsive read. This one lacks the court room scene (her trademark) but it doesn't miss anything for this.

However, 3 stars because the book ends very abruptly. When I turned over the last page I was literally expecting another chapter and had to turn back to check I'd read the last paragraph right. In another way it's also quite far-fetched in its extremes, and didn't speak to me as well as some of her other novels such as "Plain Truth" and "Keeping Faith".

If you're new to Picoult, I'd start with a different novel. ( )

Like all her books, this one dealt with contemporary issues. Marriage on the rocks because one does not stay faithful, daughter given all the attention in the world still wants peer approval more than anything, teen behaviors that cross the line. The graphic novel part was OK but not my style and as a result did not add much to the story for me. I enjoyed the father with his past still haunting him, his behaviors understood when the Alaska way of living is more fully explained and actually being there by the end with the dogsled race. The mother did not win me with her actions or her reasons. ( )

Always, I can count on a different reaction when Iisten to a Jodi Picoult book! This is book that I am very glad that I listened to it rather than read it. I could not have read it because I am tetterimg on the possiblity of losing sight in my right eye. The other reason that I am extemely sensitive to violence and this will shock and surprise you with that when you do not want it.'

I did not like any of the characters until I was introduced near the end where a boy from the Inouit tribe is introducted.

The father, Dan had grown up as an outsider in the place of the Inouit and even though he did not fit in with them he absorbed their folktales, languages and values but he had a viotent side to him when after he had moved created some graphic stories. He never fit in with anywhere that he was.

His wife Lara made me want to get away from her, she had an affair with one of her students. Their daughter, Trixie was a very confused and to me disturbed person. Lara did feel some closeness, mostly when she was young but I did not feel warmth between her mother and herself. Themes of adultry, jealousy, inability to be authenic, underage s5drinking,drugs, rape and more were there, I got mad when I listened to it, developed rage over most of it until that last disc. Then I felt a wonderful calmness. I loved learning about the Inouit language and culture. Thinking over what the family was like, I would be very happy to live with Inouit instead but I would could never do that. Better to learn from them and make it apart of our life. ( )

This is how it feels when you realize your child is missing: The pit of your stomach freezes fast, while your legs go to jelly.

In the very earliest time,
when both people and animals lived on earth,
a person could become an animal if he wanted to and an animal could become a human being.
Sometimes they were people
and sometimes animals
and there was no difference.
All spoke the same language.
That was the time when words were like magic.
The human mind had mysterious powers.
A word spoken by chance
might have strange consequences.
It would suddenly come alive
and what people wanted to happen could happen--
all you had to do was say it.
Nobody could explain this:
That's the way it was.

- 'Magic Words', by Edward Field
Inspired by the Inuit
