内容紹介

Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult offers us an unforgettable novel about the fragility of life and the lengths we will go to protect it.

Every expectant parent will tell you that they don't want a perfect baby, just a healthy one. Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe would have asked for a healthy baby, too, if they'd been given the choice. Instead, their lives are made up of sleepless nights, mounting bills, the pitying stares of "luckier" parents, and maybe worst of all, the what-ifs. What if their child had been born healthy? But it's all worth it because Willow is, well, funny as it seems, perfect. She's smart as a whip, on her way to being as pretty as her mother, kind, brave, and for a five-year-old an unexpectedly deep source of wisdom. Willow is Willow, in sickness and in health.

Everything changes, though, after a series of events forces Charlotte and her husband to confront the most serious what-ifs of all. What if Charlotte should have known earlier of Willow's illness? What if things could have been different? What if their beloved Willow had never been born? To do Willow justice, Charlotte must ask herself these questions and one more. What constitutes a valuable life?

Emotionally riveting and profoundly moving, Handle with Care brings us into the heart of a family bound by an incredible burden, a desperate will to keep their ties from breaking, and, ultimately, a powerful capacity for love.

レビュー

Praise for Jodi Picoult -- : 'Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it. -- Daily Mail 'Impossible to put down and stayed in my mind long after I had finished' -- Observer 'Superb, many-stranded, and grimly topical' -- The Times 'Picoult has an uncanny knack of dreaming up moral dilemmas that you cannot ignore: you must know the resolution ... A challenging and clever read' -- Sunday Express 20080413 'Dark, serious books that explore family relationships and scary moral dilemmas involving religion, crime and politics' -- Heat 20080419 --このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。

著者の本を読むのはこれで三冊目であるが、いずれも難病を抱えた家族の物語で、切なく辛い話である。今回の話は「Osteogensis Imperfecta = 骨形成不全症」と呼ばれる難病にかかった娘の話で、過去に作者が発表した白血病患者の娘「My Sister’s Keeper」や、心臓障害のある娘の話「Change of Heart」と似たような構成で書かれてはいるが、前二作を読んだ人でも新たな衝撃を受けるような物語である。
作者は、発言力の弱い、社会的に少数派に属する不治の病に苦しむ人たちを選び出して、その代弁者たらんとしている、と私には思える。世の中の大多数がそうであるように、これを読むほとんどの人は健常者であり、家族にも障害者が居るという家庭も稀だろう。作者は常にそういう人たちに対して、世の中にはこういう人たちも居るのですよ、と訴え続けているのだと思う。
 次々と展開していく話に惹かれて読み進んでいったので、筋書きを述べることはこれから読む人に対して妨げになるから、唯一つだけ言っておく、「母親の子宮にまだ居る28週目に、この主人公は既に7箇所の骨折のあることが認められた。そして産まれてから6歳になるまでに五十数回の骨折を繰り返していたのである。」
 盛りだくさんの内容で473ページと分厚い読み物ではあったが、筆者の巧みな筋書きと登場人物たちの交

生まれながらの難病を持つ子供とその家族の物語。大ヒットした“My Sister's Keeper”と同じパターンです。

全てを犠牲にしてもWillowに尽くそうとするCharlotteと家族のギャップを縦糸に、親友でもある担当医Piperや生まれてすぐに養子に出されたMarinのエピソードを横糸として絡めて展開します。古今東西を問わず、我が子の幸せを願う母は強く、父親などはその足元にも及びませんね。後半の裁判はこれまでほどしつこくはなくさらっと進め、その代わり陪審員を選ぶ過程から見せるなど、工夫もされています。

(以下、ネタばれになります。)
主人公の家族だけが幸せになり親友Piperが余りに可哀想だなと思いつつ最終章に突入しました。初めて一人称の語り手としてWillowが登場したので「まさか・・・」と思いましたが、そのまさかでした。冷蔵庫の扉に張り付けられたまま現金化されなかった8百万ドルは結局のところ無駄になった訳で、にも関わらずPiperは街を離れ、ハッピーな人が誰一人いない全てが虚しく感じられる結末です。作者はよっぽどこの「パターン」が好きなのでしょうが、このラストは間違いなく賛否両論でしょう。“My Sister's Keeper”と同じでしょと言われれば、それまでですが。

5つ星のうち 3.0 Not as good as I thought it would be 2016/10/2
投稿者 The Novel Lady - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I probably would not have picked up this book on my own, but since it was the "required reading" for our local book club this month, I bought the paperback and started in. Around 10 pages into the book, I had to put it down. It was depressing. Very depressing. I later picked up the book again, forcing myself to give it another shot. Nope. I went from sad and depressed to angry and frustrated. Not the emotions I enjoy from a book. Since I could not force myself to pick the book up again, I bought the audio version of the book. Sometimes listening to a book while doing the laundry or driving to the bank allows me to get the story without getting too deeply "involved". I must say that the narrators for the Audible version of this book were outstanding, with different narrators for the different characters in the book.

Jodi Picoult is an extremely talented writer, and this book was a #1 New York Times Bestseller, but somehow it missed the mark for me. This is a story about a family's struggle after their newborn baby girl is born with a genetic birth defect known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). This is a condition where the child's bones are brittle, so brittle that they break with the slightest impact from a fall, bumping into a table, or even a hug. Mounting medical bills and the need for special equipment cause financial problems and Charlotte, the mother, ends up filing a "wrongful birth" lawsuit against her obstetrician (who happens to be her best friend) for not discovering this condition and giving Charlotte and her husband Sean the option to abort the fetus. Religious aspects (Charlotte and Sean are catholic) and moral decisions tear this family apart. The ending was predictable.

I'm sure there are many who do not agree with my rating of this book. But I need to be honest with my humble opinion.

5つ星のうち 4.0 One of Jodi Picoult's best works 2015/3/7
投稿者 Pink Amy - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Grade: A-

Six-year-old Willow has osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), brittle bone disease. She's broken over 50 bones, sometimes just by sneezing. Charlotte, her overprotective mother, is always at her side. Her father, Sean, works overtime to buy Willow's medical supplies and her mounting expenses. Troubled twelve-year-old Amelia, rounds out the family. Charlotte decides to sue her obgyn and best friend Piper for not noticing the OI in an earlier, essentially saying she would have aborted her beloved Willow, all of their lives are thrown into irreparable turmoil.

Amelia and the adult characters were richly layered with nuanced traits that probably make some readers love them, and others want to strangle them. Instead of finding Charlotte sympathetic, I saw her as myopic, overprotective to Willow, neglectful to Amelia, selfish, stubborn, and a lousy friend and partner. I liked the other characters and felt most sympathetic to Amelia and Piper. Willow seemed flat, the sick girl with a great attitude who everyone loved. All of the characters, except for Willow, were believable.

Veteran novelist Jodi Picoult told the story in second person "you", who was Willow. Charlotte, Sean, Piper, Amelia, Maris (the attorney) all had sections with their first person POVs. Even Willow had a chapter at the end. Picoult did a great job staying in the "you" POV, though the first person voices all sounded the same. And there was an added bonus; Charlotte, a pastry chef, had recipes of the treats she baked weaved in through the chapters. There's also a twist I hadn't anticipated.

The story was very engaging and evenly paced. I finished reading in a day, although the book has over 400 pages. I loved the moral/ethical dilemma, it made me think about how I would feel in each person's shoes, even Charlotte, who I disliked.

Readers who enjoy women's fiction, stories of family, friendship or medical dramas will be drawn to HANDLE WITH CARE. It's one of Picoult's best works.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Handle With Care-Another story that gives us something to really think about. 2015/8/10
投稿者 Laurie Dreher - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Handle With Care-very interesting; and informative. Another story that gives us something to really think about. The author is clever, entertaining, and unpredictable. I enjoyed this book very much.
She goes into the aspects of what its like to raise a child with special needs and to fight for that child no matter what the cost. The characters were well developed as each chapter was written in the first person from the perspective of that character. The viewpoints on the various plot angles were examined from their perspectives.
The story draws the reader in emotionally and psychologically as it examines various relationships and how they go through changes-good and bad as the reader is taken through a legal battle brought on by the mother of a child born with a severe bone disease. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good, well written story and learn a few things along the way.

5つ星のうち 3.0 her heroines decide the best way to deal with the tragedies life throws their ... 2015/4/13
投稿者 julie wilson - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Jodie Picoult has created a formula for writing her novels that has obviously worked very well for her. In the face of opposition, damage to relationships, and in some cases logic, her heroines decide the best way to deal with the tragedies life throws their way and relentlessly follow this decision to an often bitter outcome. Charlotte, in Handle with Care, is no exception to this formula when she chooses to file a wrongful birth malpractice suit in order to insure the financial future of her daughter, Willow, who was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a brittle bone disease that causes countless fractures. The stickers are the suit is against her best friend and no one else in her life supports her decision.

Picolt does a good job of drawing the reader into Charlotte's personal dilemma. What would we do if our daughter, whom we loved and treasured, had needs that strapped the family financially and made her future care problematic. Would we have aborted the fetus if we had known in advance? Would we sue our best friend because she didn't correctly read the signs on the first sonogram? Would we risk our daughter feeling that we wouldn't have wanted her if we had known? With such fodder for discussion it is no wonder that Jodi Picoult's novels are such book club favorites.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Impressive piece of writing that shows the author's knowledge and dedication to this book. 2015/4/12
投稿者 carla - (Amazon.com)

I don't know where to start and how to express that I can't say enough good about this book. While I was reading it I started to get upset that I knew it would soon be over and I began researching which other books by the author I wanted to buy first because I wanted to have one ready to read next. There was a lot going on throughout the book, but not too much to keep up with just enough to keep me anticipating what was next. I thought many times about how much research had to go into writing this book because the author was obviously extremely knowledgeable about many topics and behind the scenes workings and details of disease processes and several careers. There is one thing that could be a positive or negative and that was how she told the story from the perspective of the characters. Several times I had to flip a few pages back to remind myself who she was talking about, but it was nice at times to know what each person was thinking. Loved it!
