Picoult says in the beginning that she had not heard of Shaun Ellis, The Man Who Lives with Wolves, before she conceived the character of Luke the man who lived with wolves. But later, she met Ellis, and consulted closely with him about his work with the wolves. I read The Man who Lives with Wolves and I really enjoyed it, in fact it was so memorable that I gave copies to friends as gifts. So here I am reading Lone Wolf and I feel like I am reading the wolf man's story all over again. I liked the story better as told by Ellis himself.

Then there is the problem with the rest of the story, told in first person by the member's of Luke's family as he lies in a coma. The family members, who I don't care anything about, tell their own stories in such a boring way I wonder why I should stick with the book.

I stopped reading the book once, then picked it up and tried again, but I finally said, to myself, "let the poor man die already." I am not up for reading 200 more pages about this family.
