Book - Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult

I got this book from the library in July, 2006 and had high hopes for it. I had already read one book by Picoult, “Plain Truth”, which I really enjoyed. Although I did like this one, I likee “Plain Truth” better. I think I liked the Amish aspect of Plain Truth more.

This book was very well written, a very good read, but I did get bogged down with a couple of the plotlines that were woven in. Where “Plain Truth” was about the Amish way of life, this book encompassed life in Arizona, including some about the Hopi Indian way of life. More so, it involved a character being in prison and I got very bogged down in her descriptions of prison life - the gangs, the tattoos, the hierarchy, the weapons they fashioned, how things work in a prison. I put the book down for several days when I got mired in that, and then was able to get through it and finish it. I was glad the book ended the way it did - it turned out how I wanted, and I always like that. I hate a book that ends badly.

Having said all that, I did enjoy the book and am glad I read it. I rate it a 6.5 out of 10 stars

My Score:

I thought "My Sister's Keeper" was better, but it was still a good book.
