What world does she live in??


I saw this book on the shelf of a frened who reads voraciously and picked it up. The story seems to be set in current times, dealing with coming out as homosexual later in life, and then the quest for a same sex couple to have a baby.

Where did the author get her research? From a cereal packet? The problems the couple face have zero depth and predictable as to be unbelieveable in today's world. My partner was treated to several loud exclamations during the book as in," Oh you have to be kidding," even guessing the next plot line before it happens.

Makes every lesbian I know cringe.

The song sung at the beginning of each chapter in a whiny minor key had me clawing the walls to get out.

Novelty over substance

I have a little bit of a problem with "and suddenly I was a lesbian/addict/bad person/out of love" type leaps within a story and this one has them all. I felt a little like Jodi Picoult plotted out key ( controversial ) issues she wants to mention, then joins the dots to make a story of XXX pages. This book is fine for travelling. Bits are very good, other parts are cliched - despite her attempts to address topical issues. Compared to some of her other books ( like My Sisters Keeper) it felt a bit literary-lazy. The novelty of including songs is very risky if you mis-judge your listeners tastes. The folksy, saccharine songs annoyed me - I fast forwarded through them.

Thought provoking and beautiful music too.

This book raises contentious issues whichever side of the so called 'divide' you are on whilst exposing much of the hypocrisy from the religious right who try and claim that every word in the bible is the word of god yet pick and choose when it suits them. Jodi Picoult has a knack for tackling difficult issues whilst showing, at the end of the day, love and mutual respect are all that matters even if there a still sections of the community who have to pay a very heavy price for that love.

The narration is shared between three characters and is unusual in having a musical element too, which I have to say works very well with this book. It is a great book and well narrated and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Don't be put off by the music!

I loved this book. The love story at it's heart was subtle, convincing & well drawn and I found the central characters resonated with me. As you expect with this author, the moral maze is thought provoking and not as clear cut as you might think. The main reason I have been provoked into writing a review is the overwhelming number of negative reviews about the music scattered throughout the book. These reviews put me off for some time before I finally purchased it. Personally, I enjoyed most of the musical interludes but I think it is important to point out that they are few and far between and easily skipped if they are not your bag. In short, if the only thing putting you off is the music then get over it and give it a shot!

Good story ruined by horrible music

What did you like best about Sing You Home? What did you like least?

The story and narration was great. However, listening to tinny guitar and singing totally ruined the experience

How could the performance have been better?

No music!
