Jodi Picoult did a really good job creating a mystery that kept your attention. I was instantly intrigued by Jacob, the main character, because of his rituals and his special views of the world. It was nearly impossible to guess how the book would turn out, which was a good thing, because it kept me hanging on to see how the book would end. Only on the very last page did I find out the whole story. The entire book was full of surprises and red herrings. Even though the book did seem to drag on a little bit, the amount of detail was amazing and added to the many almost-cliffhangers.
