Jodi Picoult is an excellent writer but I always hesitate to pick up her books because her subjects are so weighty yet timely. Lone Wolf is the same. It deals with euthanasia. Not a pretty subject, but one that will touch most people at some point. I liked the story. I liked how it was written from each character's point-of-view so you get a well-rounded view of Luke. I especially liked Luke's sections as he talks about wolves and their packs. I learned a lot.
The characters were well developed. I had strong feelings about some of them. I could understand Luke well. Cara, I just wanted to turn her over my knee and paddle her. She was so bratty. She was my least favorite character. I liked Edward. Yes, he had to grow up more but he did manage to create a life for himself and survive. I liked also the input of some of the peripheral characters. It was interesting to see what outsiders thought of Cara, Edward, and Luke.
This was a good book. It flowed well. It read quickly because I never got bogged down in one character's emotions because of the changing points-of-view. I read it in one day basically. I could not put it down.
