Picoult teams up with her daughter

Between the LinesBetween the Lines by Jodi Picoult
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I’m a big fan of Jodi Picoult and also enjoy the theme of fairy tale based novels/films so I thought this book might be a winner. Fairy tale character trapped inside the book falls in love with the young female reader and together they try to help him get free.

Written in conjunction with her teenage daughter is how the book is marketed yet having read it I get the feeling it owed more to the daughter than Picoult as it read very much as though written by a very young author and lacked depth that an adult writer would bring. The story seems to introduce lots of themes but answer none and the ending was somewhat of an anti-climax leaving lots of unanswered questions.

I didn’t come away thinking this was a great read, an average one but not worth the current asking price – there are better books out there to spend £6.99 on.
