Book Review: Perfect Match



Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult

As you all know, I'm a huge devotee of Picoult's novels, and have been working my way through the titles in the last couple of years. I found this one on audio and thought I would give it a whirl.

Nina is a prosecutor, specializing in children's sexual abuse cases. So what happens to her family, her profession and her sanity when her own son is molested?

This is a twisting, turning tale through the eyes of a mother as her family disintegrates and she makes decisions that could change their lives forever.

This was another Picoult masterpiece, though oddly, probably one of my least favorite, though that could have been due to the delivery. Next up, I'm going to read Salem Falls from the Picoult oeuvre.

Note: I listened to the audio version, narrated by Nancy Black. Black's narration was adequate, but I was distracted as hell when she kept slipping into an Australian dialect (her native tongue). She would be going along fine, and then bam, a Aussie accent. Weird.
