Necessary Lies

Our book club really enjoyed this book. The eugenics program was something we didn't know took place in the USA. It was hard to remember this was fiction, until the end.... felt the ending was a little too pretty for such a tough topic. Our actual rating was 4.3 out of 5.

Dark, Graphic
Not what we expected

We were expecting a light, summer read. The description of the book & the actual story are 180 degrees apart. Very dark, lots of drugs, rough language, and depressing. While it sounds like we hated it, the story actually did take a positive turn at the end, thus the "3" for our rating. Do you ever really know your friends?

Our club agreed that while the characters are broken, unlikable people, the book was an easy read. We all had different ideas on who the killer truly was there were so many small details in the book that would throw us a curve. While we found the main character pathetic in that she just kept making the same mistakes over & over we did enjoy the book. And it generated great discussion which is the best book club book qualification as far as our book club goes.

Easy read, hard to put down

Good things come in small packages. This little book hits a home run. Lots of story lines going on that all tie to the main story. The character development is excellent. A story set in the 70's regarding, race, murder, lies, & cover-ups and how that impacts Ora's life forever.

Get ready to talk

This book by far generated the most discussion at our book club. It is perfect for book clubs! Race is such a hot topic these days. Jodi Picoult does what she does best and makes you think about things from another perspective.

How do we not know about Irene?

We found this book hard to read, because if the graphic descriptions of life in the Warsaw ghetto. However, we need to know what happened so all of us were glad we read it. To think that Irene story went untold for so many years is appalling. We need to celebrate heroes and she truly is one. The girls who researched her story should also be celebrated.

Right fighter

Mrs. Richardson was a right fighter and she didn’t care how many lives she messed up as long as she was right.
