Vanishing Acts

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
March 2016
16 hours 18 minutes
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of modern classics such as My Sister’s Keeper and Small Great Things weaves a “richly textured and engaging” (The Boston Globe) tale that explores what happens when a young woman’s past—a past she didn’t even know she had—catches up to her just in time to threaten her future.

How do you recover the past when it was never yours to lose?

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her beloved father, 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…until a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret about herself that irrevocably changes her life.

With Vanishing Acts, Jodi Picoult explores how life might not always turn out the way we imagined; how the people we love and trust can suddenly change before our very eyes; how vanished memories can evolve into threat. Featuring characters that “resonate with authenticity” (People), Vanishing Acts masterfully explores a serious topic with understanding, insight, and compassion.

The book was okay. Not her best work. That being said, the narration was just plain bad. You got no sense of the emotion the author was trying to convey because the narration was either flat or sounded angry. When the author wrote something that was supposed to be banter it came across as blah and that made the story drag instead of flow.

Not my favorite Jodi Picoult book. I found it very predictable . I also found that the main character was a little annoying and was too "Damsel in distress" for my taste

Great story, but the narrators were a bit dull. Too many pauses.

Jodi Picoult is one of the greatest authors ever. I first read "the storyteller", (one of the best books I ever read!!!!) then I read "my sisters keeper" (I cried like a baby!!) and now I'm finished with this one. It's a great book, and If you are a Picoult fan then It's a must read. However it's not as good as "The storyteller".
