Synopsis

Jodi Picoult's twelfth novel is permeated with themes from Dante's INFERNO. Daniel Stone, a successful graphic novelist, is working on a new book about a man not unlike himself who is able to morph into a bloodthirsty animal named Wildclaw when his anger is roused. Daniel's wife, Laura, is a professor at a local college, where she specializes in Dante. Their 14-year-old daughter Trixie has successfully entered the social scene, even dating the star of the high school hockey team. When Trixie is raped by her boyfriend and Laura's affair with a student is revealed, Daniel becomes gripped by his long-buried past as the tough white kid raised among Eskimos, and, in his rage and confusion, he finds it necessary to take action that will have far-reaching consequences for everyone he loves. Picoult's haunting tale, in which Wildclaw's story and Daniel's intertwine, is illustrated with art by the comic-book artist Dustin Weaver.

This book is a touching yet on the edge of your seat book, i have also read My Sisters Keeper and i defiantly recommend them both.

I couldn't get into the comic book sections and the attempt to visualize the characters journey through Dante's inferno. Good concept, didn't like how it played out in application. It was an interesting story, as alwyas with Jodi Piccoult, but one I am glad I rented rather than purchased. I wouldn't read it twice.

I have really enjoyed the books by Jodi Picoult that I have read so far and this was no exception. The cartoon drawings inside added a little flare to the story.
