Leaving Time: A Novel

Leaving Time: A Novel - Jodi Picoult, Abigail Revasch, Rebecca Lowman, Mark Deakins, Kathe Mazur I got to learn a lot about elephants with this book. They never forget and they care for their young and their dead . They probably have "theory of mind" and they wrestle with death (hey, they're just like us humans). I saw the elephants in the story as a character and mostly they just seemed to keep me interested in the story since they are so very interesting to learn about.

The story itself is mostly about unfinished business the characters have and how sometimes we define ourselves by the mistakes we have made in life, both the psychic and detective need to rediscover their authentic selves before they can actualize their potentialities.

With all that aside, I say this story mostly is a detective story (with some psychic twists) led by two flawed characters and a young girl in search of who she really is who all have unfinished business to take care of. For me, just an okay story but I would have been better served listening to a Dean Koonzt novel instead even if he doesn't teach me about elephants.
