In un villaggio in Alaska, Daniel Stone è l'unico bambino bianco tra la popolazione eschimese, e la sua vita è un inferno in quanto "diverso". Per reazione, Daniel ruba, beve, rapina, imbroglia, fa di tutto per uscire da un isolamento sociale e geografico. Ma Daniel coltiva anche il suo talento artistico e si innamora. Allora getta via tutta la sua rabbia e si reinventa come marito e padre modello. Quindici anni più tardi, è un affermato artista di fumetti, che conduce una vita felice con la moglie e una figlia, Trixie. Tutto va a meraviglia, finché Trixie non viene stuprata e Daniel piomba di nuovo, impotente e furioso, in un inferno dal quale deve risalire per salvare se stesso, la sua famiglia e il loro futuro.

Jodi, Jodi, Jodi. We need to talk. I like you, I really really do. I think you are a fun girl to fly with, and I like hanging out with you when no one else is around to make fun of me when they see us together. But I feel as though our relationship is going the way of Beatrice Sparks. I mean, we rea Leggi tutto
You can see this review and many others@ https://readrantrockandroll.com/2018/... Jodi Picoult has been a favorite author of mine since I was in high school. The very first book I read by her was Picture Perfect and I couldn’t wait to read more of her novels. Very few of Jodi Picoult’s stories haven’ Leggi tutto
So if one were to compare popular fiction with dining, you could probably say writers like Danielle Steele, John Grisham, Nora Roberts, etc are the McDonald's of writers. I would probably equate Jodi Picoult with Applebee's. Reading a Jodi Picoult novel is like casual dining. You pretty much know wh Leggi tutto
Although I had read quite a number of Jodi Picoult books, I was doubtful about this one because it included a lot of the material in comic-strip format and I do not like comics or graphic novels at all. I needn't have worried though, because the story reads just as well just sticking to the text. In Leggi tutto
This one really fascinated me. I loved the aspect that brings to question does no really have to be said for it to be rape. Then you had the whole messed up family aspect as an undertone. Overall, the characters were mostly likeable but it is the debate of the themes of the book that really keep you Leggi tutto
The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult is based on a fourteen-year-old girl, Trixie Stone, who is madly in love for the first time with an upper classman named Jason Underhill, who happens to be the star hockey player of the town and well known by everyone. Sadly though, Jason doesn’t love Trixie; he mere Leggi tutto
We can't keep Jodi Picoult on the shelves in the bookstore where I work. I picked this one up just to see what all the fuss is about and before I knew what was happening I was a hundred pages into it. Picoult's great strength seems to lie in creating a suspenseful build-up as the reader waits for De Leggi tutto
WHY do I read these books? They are poorly written. REALLY poorly written. Past the point of believability and, more importantly, enjoyability. The characters are completely one-dimensional and interchangable (I could have sworn I read this book before...and then I remembered I very nearly had when
"Women's fiction" and "chick-lit" are not my cup of tea, they are not interesting to me, but no reason why such books shouldn't be given the same consideration as any other genre. I try to avoid genre snobbery (though sometimes it bubbles up with regard to YA fiction and Paranormal Romances) and con Leggi tutto
So I think I'm missing something in Jodi Picoult's writing. This is the third book I've ready by her (Pact, Sister's Keeper) and I must say that I've felt the same way about all three. I don't really like the characters. I find it hard to feel sympathetic or compassionate towards anyone in the stori Leggi tutto
