Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult ~ Fiction Book Review

wpb7.jpgThere’s no question that Jodi Picoult is a good writer. Some of her books that I’ve read have left me completely floored. This wasn’t one of them.

Don’t get me wrong – this was a good book. I just didn’t connect to it. I liked the supporting characters more than the main characters, and while the plot was well thought and enjoyable, it felt almost formula to me. As usual, it was obvious that Picoult did a lot of research for this book. Unfortunately, it seemed clumped together in data dumps throughout the novel. If I had to guess, I would say that her heart wasn’t in this one as much as some of her others.

I did enjoy this book, and if I found it a bit disappointing, it is probably because I have such high expectations when reading Picoult. Four stars.

  1. I LOVE JODI. I watched the movie of My Sister’s Keeper before reading the book. This would normally be a huge mistake as we all know but I had no spoilers so when I reached the last chapter it took all of my strength to pick myself up off the floor. Absolutely amazing.

    Me too!

    If you like reading reviews/thought on books please visit my blog at I would love to know what you think!


      1. Really? Have you a review of My Sister’s Keeper here? I must take a look, I feel like Picoult is a great vacation read! A bit of escapism, I may refrain from reading this one after your review haha
