Too much information about Egyptian tombs. Picoult could not seem to get across her purpose in this writing. I lost interest quickly.
I have read or listened to every book Jodi Picoult has ever written. I really wanted to like this one but really had a hard time getting through it. Way too much detail about Egyptology when it could have been quite a bit more simple. I really wanted to like it but had trouble following it all the way through. It took me forever to finish this one, while I can usually read one of hers in about two days.
I have read every one of Jodi’s books and I was not a fan of this one. It felt more like a text book and it was hard to get through. It could have been much shorter. I did not connect with any of the characters and character development was pointless and not very exciting. I’m sad to leave a bad review on a Jodi book but she is still my favorite writer!
Didn’t like the book. I enjoyed the Boston part.
Ive enjoyed many kid her books previously .. but ame as a few others... too much technical info. No flow to this story fir a long time. Back and forth between times is fine but wasn’t done particularly well this time, in my opinion
As a fan of Jodi Picoult I looked forward to this book - but found it very difficult to get through as there was far too much information about Egyptian archeology. It could have been a textbook on the subject. Because it was an audiobook, it wasn’t possible to skip over the pages and pages of extraneous information to get to the underlying story, which on its own would have been very entertaining.
Fifteen hours of dribble. Not a novel. An endless editorial that rambles until it final reaches a cookie cutter conclusion. Flat characters, poorly constructed, pointless dialogue with every character having the same voice, using the same trite adages. Reading a telephone book backwards would be a better use of time.
It was a bit slow in parts maybe a little bit too much Egyptology references. ( too detailed) .
Great book overall but beware of the amount of information and topics your brain will have to juggle throughout the book. It comes together in the end... but it left me wanting a more precise ending
I love Jodi Picoult as an author so I was shocked that this book was so busy with to much Egyption detail that bored me senseless. I ONLY finished the book Because I am not a quitter.
More than I ever wanted to know about Egyptology. I got a little lost in the flow of the story. The ending is ridiculous, but I think she chooses Brian.
