I love Jodi Picoult's writing style and how she's not afraid to tackle the tough subjects but I don't always like the path she follows with her plots. And with Perfect Match I was disappointed with exactly that. I found it off putting that she would focus so much also on the unrequited romantic feelings of Patrick and on the incredibly selfish actions of Nina, the mother. I felt I would have enjoyed this book more had those in between chapter glimpses into Nathaniel had been more fleshed out in this book. It seemed as if this pivotal character's development was glossed over in order to focus on the mother's actions and how everything affected her, and not her husband or their son.
But, even given the issues I had this is still a well-written story that I found to be an entertaining page turner that I'd recommend reading.
