Vanishing Acts – Jodi Picoult

Mar 24

This book is by Jodi Picoult.  It is a pretty fair story about a woman, Delia, who finds out one day that her whole identity is a lie.  When she was very young, her dad kidnapped her and changed their identities.  This would obviously throw anyone into a tailspin.  The author changes the perspective with each chapter…each one being told through the eyes of the different characters (Delia, her fiance, her best friend, her dad, her mom).  I thought this worked most of the time.  Sometimes the author would overlap versions of the same story…oh hey Ms. Picoult, I gleaned that from the last chapter.  I figured out the two big “twists” about halfway through the story.  I would recommend this as an easy read over a long weekend at the beach.
