The Deep End of the Ocean by Jacquelyn Mitchard

The Deep End of the Ocean (Oprah's Book Club) The Deep End of the Ocean by Jacquelyn Mitchard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I usually enjoy reading about characters whose author makes me think, "Oh, yeah, I know what he/she means. I have felt the same way." I like to read about characters who think about their motives and examine their lives. Given those parameters, it is surprising that I enjoyed this book. I did like the book, but I was very puzzled by the main character's approach to motherhood. I was troubled to some degree by the author's shallow dealing with motivations and relationships. I think that what kept me reading was the fact that the book dealt with the issue of how identity is defined in lives. While I don't necessarily agree with conclusions Mitchard reached, I did enjoy the debate.
