I do not think this is Picoult's best book. I ALMOST stopped listening to it after the first couple of hours. What didn't I like? It spent way too much time at the beginning talking about what the mother was thinking about the terrible situation. But most of all, the main character, the mother, just wasn't very likeable to me. I really didn't like her, I didn't like how she reacted to things, she seemed selfish and at times her decisions didn't even make sense. Quite a few times I would think, "I can't believe you are acting like that." I also thought some of the situations were a bit too extreme and unbelievable. I did listen to the end just to find out what happened.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I can't say I hated it, it was entertaining and there were times I didn't want to stop listening, but it was far from My sister's keeper. I've enjoyed Picoult's books, although MSK and House rules were my favorites. It wasn't realistic court room drama, at times making me think "really?? I doubt day times soaps would be that misleading". That being said, if you like love triangles, parental struggles and trying to walk a mile in another woman's shoes, you won't be wasting a credit.
If you’ve listened to books by Jodi Picoult before, how does this one compare?
It really doesn't and I've read/listened to several.
Do you think Perfect Match needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
Go for My sister's keeper, House rules or even nineteen minutes before this one.
