House Rules: A Novel by Jodi Picoult
 
Insightful, Informative, Interesting
Uninspiring

The book started out well but then spiraled into a long, convoluted, unconvincing story. Provoked an interesting discussion about mental illness. Two of our members LOVE Jodi Piccoult's books and everyone hated this book. It would have made a great short story instead of a 500+ page book. Apparently the author wrote this in a year while working on a script for something else and it shows. Could use some SERIOUS editing. A lot of pointless story lines that just went no where.

Fantastic closed-room mystery and produced a great conversation. Warning: there are some graphic portions.

Slow, Difficult, Romantic
Not For Everyone

This book was either loved or hated. The prose is beautiful but dense and the story can be viewed as either romantic or pathetic.

Beautiful Story

Beautiful story and such wonderful insight into other cultures. Everyone in the club adored it and it inspired a multifaceted discussion about religion, friendship and culture.
