    "it was ok"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    not really.

    you have to be in the right frame of mind for this.
    It has a lot of legal jargon, which was fine but it is a more serious book than i would normaly listen to.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jodi Picoult before, how does this one compare?

    very detailed, intelligently written.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    Could you see Lone Wolf being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    no

    "Worth a listen"

    Another great book from Jodie picoult, narrator was excellent. I loved the storyline and learning more about wolves. I find her books to be incredibly well researched and always learn from them as well as enjoying a gripping read.

    "Interesting as a nature documentary!"

    I found this full of chilches and really rather dull. However, as a documentary about wolf packs and the family structure I found it fascinating - assuming it is accurate! Maybe as a male reader I'm not the target audience as my wife enjoyed it more (though not one of her favourites) but the story was not at all gripping and upon hearing the epilogue I had to stop myself throwing the iPod out of the window - it's an unforgivable and ridiculous conclusion! The narrators are very good though.

    "Unconvincing and over-written"

    It's hard to believe that this book is by the same author as the engrossing "House Rules". Buried under an excess of details about the social interactions of wolf packs, that verged on the anthropomorphic, there is a story that explores a topical moral dilemma over what to do when a loved one is in a irreversible vegetative state. All the stuff about wolves is there to make laboured points about the similarities to human family life. The prose is stuffed with far too many embellishing similes I felt I would scream I heard yet another "as if" or "like" leaving nothing to the imagination. The readers are all good in their parts but the behaviour of the people they are depicting is at times unconvincing.

    Story
    "Save your time and money!"

    Let me start by saying, I used to love Jodi Picoult's novels. They are always well researched and until recently I have enjoyed listening to them. The last few books have been sentimentally predictable and unfortunately so is this one. The characters in Lone Wolf are stale and boring - none were truly developed. If you want to know about wolves, Shaun Ellis's book is a much better investment for your time and money.

    Story
    "What you have come to expect from Jodi Picoult"
    What made the experience of listening to Lone Wolf the most enjoyable?

    The expectedness of the story line


    What did you like best about this story?

    the intergration of wolf and human life


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The variation of voices for each character made it an even better listen.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I could I would
