The main idea of this book, is a woman who experiences the perfect fairy tale marriage which then turns for the worst. Troubles begin, and gets worse. The author's purpose for this book, is to grab the reader in and show situations that readers also deal with. I think this book is one hundred percent amazing. I think this is a book that everyone should read. It almost gives you a taste of the real life. Jodi Piccoult has always written "heart grabbers" and "tear jerkers" and this book has not failed to show her ability to do so. She details all her stories and shows exactly how it is. I love this book so much, because it keeps you wanting more. The more you read, the more things happen which keeps you turning the pages. The story is a about an anthropologist who suffers from amnesia. Throughout the books she uncovers who she was and how her life was before. She realizes she had lived through tons of hurt and uncovers even more pain. After uncovering her past, she escapes from the hurt and learns about the real world along the way.The most important things about this book are the characters. The people she uses in the book, are your every day, normal person. They're down to Earth, and someone you can almost relate to. They're not perfect, and that's what gives this book so much understanding. You get to see someone's life. You get to see the things that some people have to deal with, and most people hide. That's the reason for this book, and Jodi Piccoult does it very well. Looking at other books of hers, this is one of the best. It's different and exciting, and I believe by writing this book she reached a new goal. Her other books are always touching, and this one also in a new way. I think that this is a must read book. It's great for everyone, and I'm sure you'll love it. You get to see something you never may have before, or let it come close to home and make you realize it's close to your situation. Jodi Piccoult is an amazing author and this book shows her talent. Find time, and definitely read this book!

Normally I love Jodi Picoult's books and will buy anything written by her. This is one of her older books, and definitely not her best. Characters are one dimensional and the main female character is extremely weak. One small piece of the story about horses was laughably ridiculous--Jodi needs to do a little research or consult someone on subjects she is not familiar with. Would not reccommend this book unless you are desperate and have nothing else.

Like her other books Jodi Picoult has managed to captivate the reader in a thrilling plot which includes aspects of both a mystery and love story. Its a quick read, good for the beach, a rainy day, or just because.

Just purchased this book on my Nook, & cannot get past all the horrible typos! Feel like I'm reading something that was proof read by my 2 year old. Very distracting..

This book is amazing. The plot, the characters, the writing, everything was amazing. I could not put this book down for even a minute.

Jodie Picoult is one of the best writers of our time! She manages to take situations that the public would refuse to accept and makes us listen to everyone's perspectives. And at the end of each book, you can't put blame on anyone, because EVERYONE has something to do with it. This book, for me, is very touching. The main character reminds me of myself, I want to be an archeologist, and our personalities are also the same. Looking for people to save. So, due to that, I was able to connect with the character alot. I also like that you can't just jump to conclusions in the first few chapters, because Jodie Picoult makes sure that you are intruiged enough to keep on turning the pages. A five star book!

A novel about a young woman suffering from amnesia and fleeting memories of domestic violence, PICTURE PERFECT by Jodi Picoult can touch the soul of everyone who reads it. The marriage of famous actor Alex Rivers and renowned anthropologist Cassie Barrett seemed to be as perfect as a fairy tale at first, especially for Cassie, who'd lived her whole life far from heavenly, but as all fairy tales, this marriage had its dark secrets. As Cassie struggles to remember her life with the help of Will, a half-Indian half-white police officer fighting away the memories of his past, she uncovers more pain than she would've ever imagined could come from seemingly perfect Alex Rivers. Staying with Cassie through her amnesia, her memories, and her fight to escape, the reader feels Cassie's pain, the silent argument with herself over whether to stay with her true love and die or to leave and live. Cassie's life is so real to the reader that PICTURE PERFECT is impossible to set down until you've finished.

And drawn out for a very abrupt and ridiculous ending.

Jodi Picoult has done it again. With characters who have depth, imagery that you can reach out and touch and a heart that both cheers and berates the situation. The need she attributes to the characters sounds researched... like she has listened to both the battered and the battered. I cried, held my breath and prayed about the characters next steps, hoping for safety and salvation. It was hard to put down. As a warning.. if you or someone you know has been in this situation it may be very hard to read.

A little slow moving. Good story although at times sappy but loves that way. Would have like to know the outcome.
