reading other reviews for The Pact I only found one person, before I gave up, that had the same problem as me It got to the point that I wondered if I read the same book as everyone else because I don t know how anyone could have read this Gosh, I want to hate her for writing books like thisThroughout the whole book, I was thinking about what rating to give it, because there were parts that blew my mind and others that were just very slow, yet significant for the storyline I even caught myself thinking Ha, she forgot to mention that but then it happens on the last page The end of The Pact

reading other reviews especially the one in The New York Times helped me formulate my thoughts.Although The Pact touches on a variety of psychological issues, Jodi deals with themsuperficially and

anythingdevasting then the loss of your child, by whatever means Picoult s sequence of events was intersting the timeline moved back and forth so that the reader was able to get a sense of how close
