Many readers enjoyed Landay's fresh writing style:
Defending Jacob is much better than the typical thriller - there are no generic or stock story lines (Susan R). I was pleasantly surprised to find it well-written, smart, and riveting. Defending Jacob touches on the idea of nurture vs. nature, making the reader question if it is possible to escape genetics (Alexandra S). Though it is not difficult to follow the plot or remember the characters... it is definitely not simple. Landay is very careful to ensure continuity in his story. The plot is unusually interesting... the story is clearly articulated and quite unique (Susan R).
And the majority of people found the novel positively thrilling:
