Finally I'm reading this book (I have the iBooks version, but the cover image is the same), I love all Jodie Picoult's books . The storyline in this one is interesting and makes you think a lot about the issues in it. The characters are well thought out and presented and as always you can see Jodi's skill in writing and presenting a sensitive issue, and all the background work that's gone into this book is, as always, astonishing.

Ever since I watched this for the first time in 2000, I've loved it. Instantly loveable characters and a poignant plot that stays with you long after you've watched it and leaving you yearning to watch it again. Brilliant cast too- Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment are outstanding. It teaches you a thing or too about social realities in the USA and Trevor's (Haley Joel Osment) dedication to the task of helping others less fortunate than himself and his acceptance of his teacher, Mr Simone (Kevin Spacey) despite his facial disfigurement and his willingness to make people happy and help them really is so touching. He plays the part really well as he does in other films ("artificial intelligence" and "the Sixth Sense" to name a few), I can only thank my friend for introducing me to this film. It's a real tearjerker in some parts so best have the tissues to hand!

Great to finally read the sequel to "glass houses" (book #1). Just as good as the first book. A must-read for everyone who loved The Twilight Saga! Enjoyable for adults as well as teens due to the clever, exciting writing style Rachel Caine has.
A great debut novel. Intriguing, exciting and full of suspense the characters really come to life. A very relaxing read too. Made me desperate to pick up the next book in the series.

As a physically disabled person and a wheelchair user, I could really identify with this book. I was recommended it by a member of Canine Partners at a disability exhibition ( NAIDEX) earlier this year. My life has near parallels with Sally's except I have cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus and am registered blind. I went to the same uni as her husband and have been recommended the use of an assistance dog. I also love to travel. The book is beautifully and thoughtfully written and stays with you long after you've finished it. I think this book will bring hope to a lot of disabled people and shows that being disabled isn't necessarily a bad thing! I can't wait for a sequel!
