The story drew me in claim away, but about slightly through, it started to lose me. In the beginning, I liked Superiority and Zoe. My nub broke for Zoe. Of course, Superiority turned into an out to lunch, but he was still a reasonably sympathetic out to lunch. Then, about slightly through the book - give or take - they both turned into whiney, unbearable goons. I started to root against both of them. The story itself also started out really well, then got to be a bit much. Some things seemed contrived. I liked the premise, but somewhere in the middle, the doing started to falter. Thankfully, Ms. Picoult was able to pull it out in the demise. I have to say, I was able to predict the completion, but only about 1 beep before it actually happened :). I did like the completion, and felt it redeemed the book a bit. I don't think any of Ms. Picoult's books can compare to My Sister's Keeper (at least, nil that I have recite so far). But this is a decent, quick recite for the beach or a long, rainy weekend.
