I had been fan of Jodi Picoult since 2008, when a friend of mine told me about her and I decided to check it out. So far I enjoyed most of her novels; there was couple books that I didn’t enjoy as much as others but most of her books kept my attention, my interest. Lone Wolf was one of those books, keeping my attention from beginning to end. Each page was filled with action; unexpected twists which made me want more, made me curious what’s going to happen next, how it all will end.

Six years ago, at age 18 Edward Warren left the family after a fight with his father, Luke. Now, Edward been living in Thailand, teaching, till he gets a frantatic phone call from his mother, telling his that his father and sister, Cara been in accident. Edward finds himself on the next plane out; to see the family he hasn’t seen in years. Once there, he finds his father Comatose and his sister injured.

Once it looks like his father is not going to improve, a decision must be made. While Cara wants to wait for a miracle, sure that one will come soon; Edward wants to termite life support and donates his father’s organs. When Cara finds out what Edward wants to do, she’s sure that he is doing out of hate for his father. How far is Cara willing to go, to stop Edward?

 In my opinion, Lone Wolf was one of the most emotional novels that Jodi wrote. From the first page, from moment I heard Luke’s fate the first time, I had a feeling that this was going to be emotional read. I always enjoyed books about family relationships and Jodi always done a great job with those. Lone Wolf wasn’t any different and hearing from each character’s point of view, their thoughts, and their feelings worked very well for this novel, I felt as I could relate to each of characters even if I didn’t know what they were going through.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy Wolf aspect of the book, but that ended up being one of my favorite parts of the book, when wolf’s behaviors were described. Jodi did an amazing job with descriptions, I learned much more about wolves then I knew before I read the book. I especially enjoyed reading about Luke’s time with the wolves, way he lived with them and way they had accepted him as one of the pack. I was sure in beginning when he thought about doing it, that he would end up getting killed. Yet, I still wasn’t happy with him for leaving his family; I think if that ever happened in my family, I wouldn’t be too happy.

The intense relationship between the family, especially Cara and Edward was what made it more thrilling to read. I felt for Cara, yet I found myself agreeing with Edward too, especially after hearing the news of Luke’s condition. I actually found myself for Edward to win the case, to be able to decide his father’s fate. I loved the fact that this book consisted of mostly family relationship. This book made me cry few times, and I found myself angry at certain characters. I found myself rooting for Luke, to pull through. Jodi had found a way to bring story to life once again, I can’t wait till her next novel, and I always look forward to her novels each year.
