Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can't recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it.
What happens when you learn you are not who you thought you were? When the people you've loved and trusted suddenly change before your eyes? When getting your deepest wish means giving up what you've always taken for granted? Vanishing Acts explores how life as we know it might not turn out the way we imagined; how doing the right thing could mean doing the wrong thing; and how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat.

"Hated all the characters."
This was one of the worst books I've ever read. Kept reading hoping the ending would be good. Nope.
I had trouble finishing this book and must say I was disappointed. Other Jodi Picoult books, I've enjoyed. This one seemed to drag on and on and was implausible in places. It could have been an interesting story, but somehow became very boring. The narration was too slow and pretty average, across the board. Sorry...this one didn't do it for me
Love the story and the narrators did an excellent job. Jodi Picoult never disappoints her audience.
As with all of her books this was simply breath taking. Difficult and easy at the same time.
Dragged a little for me. Pretty predictable. Well read and overall good book but did take many Segway.
"Love Jodi Picoult"
As always Jodi Picoult keeps you guessing until the very end. This book skated the fine line of right and wrong.
The only thing that bothered me was the pronouncing of some words. I live in Arizona and quite a few of the things they pronounced were wrong. I had to focus to overlook it.
"Dragged at times"
Storyline was good but Dragged at times. Too much detail at times. Didn't enjoy the detailed description of life in jail for Andrew and ultimately towards the end of that section had to fast forward though it. Narration was not the best quality performance- there were many times could hear several narrators take a breath or swallow.
"Just okay story"
The story was somewhat of a letdown for me after seeing the other reviews. It was predictable and boring. The readers/narrators did a good job, but still it fell flat.
This was a great book. I'm growing to love Jodi Picoult. I will be purchasing more by this author.
"Too many voices"
Plot was strong but it lacked flow by switching characters and was written first person. Disappointed as I love the author's work. I don't know if it felt so disjointed because it was an audio book.
Beautifully written and challenging your personal morals & choices at every turn... completely compelling & I found sympathy with every key character. I feel that I know these characters on a personal level because of the cleverness of the author.
"another great story"
don't think there are many of J P booksI've not listened to and haven't enjoyed. in fact I have enjoyed each and every one
audio books are expensive so the longer the book the better for me
value for money !
some of Ms picoults books can be uncomfortable, but this one was engaging & fascinating
