    It was OK

    I love any book written by Jodi Piccoult. She says she reads everything that Alice Hoffman writes, so I wanted to see what was go great about this author. I selected this book to read because it looked interesting. The premise of the story is good, and it kept me engaged. The idea that a man was raised by wolves and then is entered back into society was compelling. I loved the main character because he saw man in society with no filter. As a result, he saw things in a very honest way. However, I was not very pleased with the end and had hoped for something more.

    What happened?

    I feel alittle cheated because I never found out what happened to Stephen or did it say and I missed it? I was really into the book and then I seen only a few pages left, what happened to the characters after Stephen left. And what happened to Stephen? Did he ever come back? Will there be another book?

    not great

    This was my first Alice Hoffman novel, and it will probably be my last. I didn't get attached to any of the characters, all the relationships were based on lust, the plot was way too unrealistic to be feasible (how could he be completely normal within such a short span of time), and at the end I was just like, 'that's it?' I really didn't enjoy it very much. But I seem to be the only one, so maybe it's just Hoffman's style that I don't like.

    A great story that weaves its characters together

    Such a moving story, with great character development and a plot that made me stay up really late at night to see what happens next.

    heart-wrenching

    I read this book during air travel and was so moved I couldn't control my tears in public.It remains one of the most stirring novels I have experienced. Not light-hearted but definitly a treat.
