Book Review: House Rules by Jodi Picoult - Reviewed by Lis (28 Jun 2011)
This is a beautiful and terrifying book about a special young man and his family, faced with a situation that looks like the outcome can be nothing but extremely negative. It takes the perspective of different people involved in the story and wonderfully educates us in the world of autism/aspergers.
From my studies into Aspergers I was extremely amazed at how well Jodi Picoult can teach any reader about this syndrome and the authentic way she explained it. It can also be used as a tool to explain to highschool students the perspective of another student with aspergers and is so insightful.
The middle part of this huge read does seem to draw out the story a little but by persisting it catches you and you can not put it down for at least the last quarter.
This book has been written in the Jodi Picoult recipe, which takes a hot topic and fleshing it out to bring us a story that is educational and entertaining as well as a twist which makes us questions what we would do if placed in the same moral dilema. I find that it is well researched and topical, and her knowledge is sound and she will bring knowledge and understanding to many readers.
