Grim and addicting

This is an interesting and addicting read. There are many characters to follow which keeps the story moving well and thickens the plot. The authors deals with many taboos that society tends to ignore. It was hard to put down. All in all a great read!

Dont read!

This was one of the worst books i have ever read. The book was choppy, it had so many stories going on at once i could not keep track of them, and none of stories were interesting until the very end of the book. It was raunchy and for no good reason. I can breez through...

It was raunchy and for no good reason. I can breez through books , but this was so bad that i didnt want to read it. There was so much pointless filler in this book it could have just been a short story. Dont read it... wasted hours of my life.

    I was bored out of my mind...

    ...and yet I slogged through it because I hate quitting on a book. I was especially disappointed in how each story line seemed separate from the whole; it seemed to me that the author closed her eyes, crossed her fingers, and tossed a bunch of people into the mix and hoped they'd stick together cohesively. She was successful sometimes, but there are just too many voices in this book. It's too bad...I think the idea was solid and this could have been a fabulous read.

    Disappointing

    I had high expectations after the phenomenal "The Doctor's Wife", which was an outstanding read. Unfortunatly "Somebody Else's Daughter" began quite interesting though, but after 80 pages I lost interest completely and quit the book. Discriptions of rich New England people's lifes were absolutely nothing for me and I was no longer interested to know the outcome of the story. I am really sorry for the money I wasted on this boring book.

    Huge Disappointment

    I am sorry to say I was less than impressed with this story, it had such a good base line and so much potential, but I felt the story drag on and on, with only the ending being remotely exciting. It was as if she was outlining all of the characters before telling the story. All of her characters were very interesting and real, and I did enjoy them, but as a whole the story was disappointing.

    Teen parents

    Two teenage heroin addicts give birth to a baby girl. The mother tells the boy they have to put the baby up for adoption so she doesn¿t grow up poor. They do. The mother dies after handing the child over to the adopted mother. The father, years later, gets his life together and becomes a teacher in his child¿s school. The school¿s principle is a rapist and he and his wife kill his victims. This was not a page-turner for me.
