    • Let me start by saying, I love Jodi Picoult's novels. I've read 13 of them, most of which were thoroughly enjoyable (with only a couple of notable exceptions--Songs of the Humpback Whale for one). I'm always excited to see when she's written something new and can't wait for it to come into print. When I've read or listened to interviews she's given, I am always amazed that she writes all of her novels in about 9 months. For the most part, you would never be able to tell they are written so quick [...]


    • I was pretty disappointed with this book. To be honest though, I thought the same when I read the excerpt Jodi Picoult published months (maybe even a year) ago on her website. But I gave the book a chance because Ms Picoult is one of my favorite authors. I guess the main problem with the book is that, unlike her previous books, the characters in "Lone Wolf" are boring and stale. Jodi Picoult's books are known for their intricate plots and well-developed characters. Her story-lines are typically [...]


    • Whatever type of drama-family, medical, courtroom, even wild animal dramais book has them all, with Jodi Picoult's signature all over it.  It may be that her books has a certain mould, a template, but she gets published only once or twice a year so if you're like me who waits to read the latest, you can liken it to waiting for Christmas.There's always something new to learn in her books. In Lone Wolf, there was of course the wolf lessons, both about them and from them.  There were the briefs o [...]


    • Eh. Just Meh. Jodi, Jodi, Jodi I know you don't write just for me. But my heart is breaking a little bit.You used to be my favorite author. I bought your books, even in hardback, which is a rare thing for this frugal girl to do.Sight unseen, I'd buy them, because I just knew they would be good.About four books back or so, I began to feel they were becoming formulaic.The twists were predictable, the tearjerkers at the end became cheap and redundant.I hoped for more. I still believed.With these la [...]


    • This is one of those books where I started doubting if the whole wolf allegory would mess up the storytelling But it was an essential part of the whole reading experience. Amazing piece by Picoult. Full review coming soon!-------------Originally posted on my blog Guiltless ReadingJodi Picoult's powerful stories are not new to me. So when I saw that her latest novel Lone Wolf was up for grabs in , I didn't think twice. And so I was among the lucky ones who got an Advanced Reader Copy!My thoughts [...]



    • This was so captivating! You ask yourself so many questions about life, death, family, love, hate, and betrayal along with loyalty. I could not put this book down but had to for emotional stability lol. When I came back to it today, I read it nonstop until the end. I believe there are so many dynamics to family and relationships that we do not contemplate into faced with them head on because they make us uncomfortable and force us to ask questions about people we love and ourselves that we just [...]


    • 2.5 starsI am a big Jodi Picoult fan. Her books are easy to read quickly and involve family dynamics. She always seems to do a lot of research on a wide range of topics in order to bring controversial issues into her books to keep them a little more cerebral than other chic lit authors. However, the subject matter in this book was intangible for me. A guy who preferred living with the wolves than with his wife and two kids? It seemed far fetched and a unrealistic. First, why would a woman want t [...]


    • As soon as I heard about Jodi Picoult's latest novel, I just had to get my hands on a copy. When I did receive a copy from the publishers, I just couldn't wait to get started on it! Whilst I haven't read them all, I've read most of Jodi Picoult's novels and I've really enjoyed them, giving her a firm place in my favourite authors. I'll start by admitting that I was slightly wary of the 'wolf' aspect of this book. Whilst I love animals, I'm not usually keen on reading about them and I have had no [...]


    • Αυτό το βιβλίο συνδυάζει τις ανθρώπινες σχέσεις με μια αγέλη λύκων.Χρειάστηκα λίγο χρόνο μέχρι να καταλάβω την ιστορία και ειδικότερα την σύνδεση με τους λύκους αλλά εξελίχθηκε πολύ καλό.Ευτυχώς που το συνέχισα :P


    • I am a big fan of Jodi Picoult and have read most of her books. So I was pretty sure when I picked this one up I would enjoy it. And enjoy I did usual there are fascinating characters that she draws you into, revealing more of them bit by bit till you feel you know and maybe even understand them. That is one of the defining elements in all her writing. But in this book I got something extra and I think you will too. I learned a lot about wolves, and how they live, and how that pertains to how we [...]


    • Well I was always going to love this, being a book about wild animals and a man who struggles to find a balance between a life with them and a life with humans. There is no instinctive driver I can relate to more. Whilst the leading character, Luke Warren himself is 'absent' (in a coma after an accident), we hear his voice throughout the novel, and come to understand that the man who seemed to be the underlying cause of all that was broken in this family, is perhaps the one who has been teaching [...]


    • Os dois livros que já li de Jodi Picoult mostraram-me a capacidade que a autora tem em abordar temas polémicos, fazendo o leitor questionar-se sobre o que faria se se encontrasse na situação das personagens, enquanto transmite, de forma bastante conseguida, a existência de um limite ténue entre o que está certo e o que está errado. Lobo Solitário não é exceção: uma vez mais, estamos perante uma complexa trama em que um dos temas centrais é a eutanásia. Luke Warren é um homem com [...]


    • The first book I read by this author is Picture Perfect and I was very disappointed because I have heard so much about the author however I was not deterred hoping that another of her book will tell me much about her hence this book.This is an interesting family story and the subject matter is an uncommon one but the author managed to weave a family dilemma and how wolves and it's pack lives into a superb novel,This book made me to understand more about wolves and how organized they are includin [...]


    • mrs-margot/ This book brings us a reflection about the family and the commitment to it. How a secret can destroy a family and like so many other secrets can cause almost irreparable damage. Luke, a naturalist obsessed with wolves and lives mainly for them, after an accident with her daughter Cara, he is in a coma. He also has a son who cut ties six years ago and that caused his divorce. Edward, his son, is the only close relative of legal age and with the power of decision to turn off the machin [...]


    • Almost 5 years ago, I had to watch my mother deteriorate on life support for a month. This book was a painful but somehow therapeutic read. It hit me so close to home but what I liked the most about it is how genuine everything felt from the visits to the ICU, the meetings with the doctors, and the pain of the uncertainty of a parent's recovery. The daughter Cara is 17 years-old and I was 18 years-old when I had to go through something very similar with the parent I was closest to. The grief she [...]


    • I was very disappointed with Lone Wolf. Of the 5 or so characters we met, I felt only emotionally invested in two of them (Luke and Joe) and only minimally at best. In past novels by Jodi she has done such a good job at making you feel something for the characters that you are emotionally invested in their futures and the outcomes of their situations. This was not at all true with Lone Wolf. I felt very little for Edward, nothing for Cara, and Georgie was just kind of "there".I enjoyed reading a [...]


    • Dos livros mais recentes de Jodi Picoult, este foi aquele que sempre chamou mais a minha atenção. E mereceu-a!Primeiro, pela dinâmica entre lobos e humanos.Segundo, porque consegui identificar-me com Edward, Cara e Luke por três razões diferentes mas muito distintas.Terceiro, por todas as questões médicas e legais. Por último, acabou como deveria ter acabado, e nem precisava daquele epílogo um pouco “emprestado” do seu outro livro Em troca de um coração.Por essa altura, acho que t [...]


    • Mais uma vez a escritora não desilude com mais um livro onde um dilema nos faz ver os 2 lados da questão. Se no inicio podemos tomamos partido de um dos lados, ao longo do livro ficamos sempre balançados com os sentimentos e emoções descritos. E em jeito de bónus, ficamos a conhecer melhor a vida dos lobos, confesso que pouco ou nada sabia sobre estes animais, pelo menos menos com tanto pormenor


    • Lone Wolf has all the elements I would expect from Jodi Picoult, controversy, ethical conflict, and courtroom drama. Luke Warren is severely injured in a car accident and lies comatose in hospital. His estranged son returns from Thailand after a seven year absence to be at his father's bedside, to the disgust of his younger sister. Cara Warren is seventeen, too young to make medical decisions for her father and resents Edwards authority. When Edward makes the painful choice to discontinue life s [...]


    • Luke Warren finds it easier to live with wolves than with his own human family. His son, Edward, has resided in Thailand for the past five years after having a fight with his father, and his wife, Georgie, has divorced him. Now he only resides with his seventeen-year-old daughter, Cara. But after a devastating car accident leaves Luke comatose and Cara injured, Edward is forced to come back to the states and choose with Cara whether or not his father should be taken off life support. Edward and [...]


    • Accidents and family dynamics are like identical twins. A painful experience to one, brings forward similar pain in the other, and that is what happens in this book.Luke Warren transcends from human existence into 'wolfdom', leaving his real family behind. When he is involved in a serious accident with his daughter, Cara, and ends up in a vegetative state, the divided family's pot of secrets and hurts gets cooking. The two siblings have to make a decision but cannot agree on what would make thei [...]


    • Jodi Picoult has reached a new level with her new book, Lone Wolf. This book dragged me into a story, that I was uncertain about and before I knew it I was firmly engrossed. So much so that I continued to read through the tears, laughter, pain and heartache until the end of the book. Luke Warren, the main character, was a man who lived life within his own boundaries. To some that life excluded his human family. To others he was a man who was able to understand and be one with a pack of wolves. T [...]


    • A gripping yet touching story about the ethics of life and death. Hardened fans won't be disappointed and all readers will hopefully encouraged to consider their own views on mortality. When brilliant naturist Luke is horrifically injured in a car accident leaving him in a vegetative state, his family are left to make decisions for him, including the most serious of all - should he continue live artificially or should he die? Luke's two children, Edward and Cara, hold opposing views for what the [...]


    • A new Jodi Picoult novel. Let's go through the Jodi Picoult checklist, shall we?Family Drama? Check!Courtroom scenes? Check!Twist Ending? Check!Lots of angst? Check!Oddly named characters? Check!Told from different perspectives? Check!Social issue? Check!This book really wasn't great. I didn't care about the wolves, nor the family, and the last 100 pages made me just skip to the end, which wasn't impressive.


    • Where does Jodi Picoult comes up with these ideas? So we have a man who practically believes he's a wolf and his two children in a legal battle over his brain dead state. Very intriguing and held my interest the entire way through.


    • Lobo Solitário arrasta-nos para o meio de um sério drama familiar.Não é difícil deixarmo-nos encantar pelos relatos de Luke Warren (um naturalista e conservacionista que sempre sentiu uma ligação muito forte aos animais) sobre o comportamento dos lobos. No entanto, a sua dedicação a estes animais - que o levou a ser visto por uns como um génio e por outros como um louco - conduziu a uma negligência para com a própria família. O lar é apenas um local de passagem para Luke para tomar [...]


    • Much thanks for ’ friend Shomeret for telling me about this book. One thing we have in common is our love of wolves. I hadn’t known about this book and I wasn’t necessarily currently in the mood to read another book by this author, but I’m so glad I read this one.I love wolves so I was particularly interested in this book. I’m also interested in the right to die (which I’ve been engaged in conversation about at another one of my book reviews), quality of life, decisions about prolong [...]


    • I'm a fan of Picoult's earlier books; so I pre-ordered this one and was looking forward to reading it. However, wolves don't do it for me. I don't care about the different roles in a wolf pack. So about half-way through I started skipping all Luke's wolf-talk chapters and only read the closing paragraph as that summed up the point Jodi wanted to get across in that chapter. Doing that definitely made the book flow more and kept me interested. If I didn't do that, I am not sure I would have finish [...]


    • A história é centrada na personagem de Luke, um homem que teve um acidente e encontra-se em coma. Luke, adora a vida animal e viveu durante alguns anos com lobos num habitat selvagem deixando para trás Georgie a mulher, Cara e Edward, os dois filhos. Georgie refez a vida e casou-se com Joe, um advogado, e Edward afastou-se da família partindo para Tailândia. O ponto central do livro é a doação de orgãos e Edward sabendo que o pai queria ser doador de orgãos, vê-se no direito de deslig [...]
