I thought the idea for this story was intriguing. The portrayal of domestic abuse rang true and was subtly and sensitively told. I liked the legends even though it wasn't always clear why they were there. The use of music to clarify flashbacks was generally helpful to the listener even if the choice was a bit annoying and cloying at times.
However there were plot elements which I felt somehow didn't work and didn't add to the story except to its length. I listened to the abridged version only because there wasn't a full version and I usually like long novels but this novel felt as if it went on and on... and on...
Beautifully read and gripping story. Jodi Picoult yet again picks up on a contemporary topic and explores it - good looking wealthy and famous couple with everything to live for, yet behind closed doors he beats her. How does she behave when their lives are lived out in front of cameras and world-wide media? I loved this one!
