Jodie Picoult

Postby ali76 » Thu May 01, 2008 8:17 pm

In the last 12-18 months, I've become almost obsessed with Jodie Picoult books. Some of them I find quite hard to read because they can be quite disturbing.

I've read The Pact, Salem Falls, My Sisters Keeper, The Tenth Circle (?), Perfect Match and now I'm reading Nineteen Minutes. I think out of all of them I liked My Sisters Keeper the most (can't wait for the movie), probably followed by The pact.

Just wondering if anyone else reads her books....and what's been your favourite?

OMG!!!! I loooove Jodie Picoult.

My faves would also be The Pact and My Sisters Keeper, I also liked Keeping Faith.

Have just read Nineteen Minutes, so true about the disturbing parts, and the endings always throw such a curve ball.

Yeah, Im really enjoying Nineteen minutes....I bought a Jane Green book to read next...something a little lighter!! I think Keeping Faith might be after that though!

What genre does she write in? With such rave reviews I might try and track down a few at my local library!

They generally start with a crime, then follow the family involved and the court case....they're brilliant - couldn't recommend her highly enough!

I have just literally finished THe Pact. It read right up until the last page and I just didnt want to put it down. Before that I had read her latest book A Change of Heart and that was FANTASTIC. I recommend these books to everyone.
Need to get motivated.

love jodi picoult books, i have read a fair few, once i have enjoyed include:
nineteen minutes
my sisters keeper
the pact
vanishing acts
keeping faith
The tenth circle
perfect match

Did anyone find they couldn't get into any of her books? I tried both plain truth and second glance several times and just couldn't get into them. The rest are brilliant though.

I'm actually struggling with Keeping Faith. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying it but normally I can't put her books down..??

I think I'll put it down to be under the weather...?!

I read My Sisters Keeper a few months ago and loved it! I want to read more of her books, can anyone suggest what to read of hers next? :)

I have read every single one of Jodi's books and cannot get enough of them. Some are quite depressing but she is absolutely brilliant. My Sister's Keeper and The Pact being faves.

The Pact by far and Nineteen Minutes. Everyone raves about my Sister's Keeper but it didn't click with me.

Yeah they are awesome! There have been a couple of her books that I haven't been able to 'get into' I guess. I did read 'Handle With Care' and I absolutely hated it! I thought the ending was incredibly stupid. In fact I was so put off that I have yet to read 'House Rules'.
