Songs of the Humpback Whale by Jodi Picoult

It has been a really long time since I have read a Jodi Picoult book and I have to say this one is among my favorites of her's even though it is most definitely the dirtiest.

I was actually really surprise by how many details Jodi wrote about in Songs of a Humpback Whale. details about mature adult things, that had me asking Mr. what the line was between this and actual, you know what...

But that aside, there are allot of emotions in this book and tons of them I could relate too. I am really glad though it was write from the perspective of like 5 different people (Oliver, Rebecca, Jane, Sam, Joley). You got to understand what each of them were thinking of how they came to the conclusion they did. I was extremely surprised by what happened. And at first I didn't think it was real until more than one person talked about it.

My favorite character was definitely Oliver, though at first I hated him and didn't like reading through his thoughts and I couldn't understand why he did the things he did. But the more you read into what he is thinking and saying, it makes sense and you see his train of thought. Makes you wonder how many guys think this way?

I liked that it felt allot like Oliver and Joley were more writing letters to Jane in their heads than actually talking. She was definitely the main thing on their minds. The only thing that felt unsolved was Joley's thoughts on Oliver, was he happy with the ending? Because you know what all the other characters think.

All in all a pretty damn good book. Happy Reading
