Summary:

Jodi Picoult is a #1 New York Times bestselling author whose books have been adapted for both the small and silver screen. In Perfect Match, she spins a story of a mother who does the unthinkable to protect her child. Lines blur when assistant DA Nina Frost learns that her five-year-old son Nathaniel was sexually abused by a priest. She takes the law into her own hands, killing the man accused. But then details surface clearing the priest and putting Nina's future in jeopardy.

    I'm left feeling very conflicted about this book. The child abuse was terrible, but the parents reactions made me uncomfortable, especially the mom. With all her experience, I feel she jumped to conclusions too easily. I fully understand why she didn't want her son to ever go to court about his abuse. The treatment of victims is horrible, but of all the people who understand the need of being 100% sure before convicting and punishing a possible perp, this woman is no stay at home mom. Going to jail is nothing anyone wants to face, but it's better than losing your life for a crime you didn't commit! Bottom line, we all seem to be too quick to decide and act with too little information and this trend in America scares me!

    Jodi got me again. I always think I don’t want to read about the subject of her book, but I can’t stop after the first page. This narrator is really outstanding also – actually there were multiple narrators, all did a great job.

    This book is very well acted and draws on the heart strings. From someone who used to work in the criminal justice field it really is sad that someone would be willing to give up everything to save her son from having to relive something so terrible. As a parent, I dont know how we would act when something like this was done. I think anyone would want the same or more but acting on it is completely different then thinking it.

    Interesting twist on a relavent social problem . Shows how “Truth “ is so necessary ! Interesting take on the Justice system . Importance of truth in determining Guilt or Innocence beyond Reasonable Doubt !!

    This book held my attention and was very different than what I was expecting. The subject matter was quite troubling at times. The narration was very good with different points of view and voices.

    Piccoult’s books are so socially relevant that I find myself intrigued right away. The message and moral ramifications of the protagonists’ actions were ery subtle in this particular story, but present nonetheless.

    I was underwhelmed by this book and while I listened to the whole thing it was an endurance trial. I didn't like or connect with the mother. She was just TOO MUCH in everything she did. The apparent lack of feeling for the priest was appalling. As was her lack of feeling for the friend who was in love with her. I even found the cloyingly sweet child annoying! Overall, too many detailed descriptions of emotions, too many words and not enough substance.

  • Marissa S.

    The book was suspenseful at times. And the storyline was good. But I wasn’t a big fan of the main character. I’m not sure if it was the narrator or her. No. It was the main character. This is the first book I’ve read from this author. I do like her writing style so may give another of her books a try. Not good enough for 4 stars in my opinion.but worth the credit. Kept me entertained.

    Not very believable. Kinda drawn out.
