Jodi Picoult never disappoints.....her storylines are timely and thought-provoking. I usually go into her books with a set opinion on the topic, and always end up either changing my mind or at least admitting that life in rarely black and white. I love the way she tackles her subjects and characters. From Page 1, I am involved and I care. In my opinion, she is one of our best current authors. I am in the process of reading ALL of her books.

This is the second of Jodi Picoult's books that I had to force myself through. (The Tenth Circle being the first) Most of her books are wonderful stories that you can't put down because you come to love the characters and feel as if you know them. Mercy, however, was a completely different story. The book is supposed to be about Maggie and Jamie, but instead over half of the book is dedicated to Cam's philandering with Mia...I wanted to slap Cam and Mia and tell them to get it together. I also wanted to slap Allie for being so naive. The concept of a mercy killing should have made for a great novel, but I think Picoult's ambitions got in her way with this book. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time on this one...
