The Pact: Can we ever really know our children at all?
The Pact is a book you may already have heard of. I think it is Jodi Picoult’s second most successful book. Personally, I don’t know why. I mean Jodi Picoult is my favourite author, because the way she writes she is able to make you feel like if you were in the characters their places and make you want to know the end of the story so badly. And thank god those are only stories. The subjects she writes about, awful!! But Things like these happen, daily.. :’( That’s what I actually love about Picoult’s books, she is able to make realize how awful these things are, how lucky we are, and make us think about it really hard..
But let’s get back to ‘The Pact’ itself. I think the idea is really good: Christopher Hart is charged of murdering Emilie Gold, his seventeen-year-old girlfriend. Did Chris really kill her? Chris’ attorney claims this is a lie, the defendant’s attorney claims this is what happened. What is the truth and what will the judge believe? But some things were just a little disappointing to me..
The book is written in the Present, and then the past, the present, the.. You get what I mean. And I liked the past, and the trial, but all the other part of the book, I found it quite boring.
And there were too many dirty scenes, I know Jodi Picoult writes a lot of these scenes but still.. too much is too much! :P
But, what I DID like about this book is the ending! It happens really often that I don’t like Jodi Picoult’s books endings but this one, Somehow I really did!
So all in all I gave this book: * * * *
