Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is an incredible author who takes the stories we see in todays papers and gives you a different perspective – a twist to our point of view where at times you find yourself rooting for the one you never thought you would side with. I for one, find her books to be fascinating and look forward to whatever she is going to think of next.

Our book club reviewed this book last night and we had a great discussion over this book. While the book spurred mixed feelings – we all agree that Jodi Picoult is an amazing writer and can really put a twist on current issues that make the reader view things differently as well.

Our discussion led to memories of what it was like to not fit in at school – moments when we were were insecure in our social standing no matter where we landed on the popularity scale. We were also able to discuss the current school issues and hear stories from members from one whose son was actually on a school hit list by an angry child, to another whose son hates school and how to help him through it.

The overall review went well and the book received an average rating with mixed votes turned in from 2 – 4 points out of 5.

  1. Ok….can’t believe I am commenting on the book club blog after just making fun of you and all your book clubs. – I was just in Canada and one of the guys had this book…actually he and his wife were reading it at the same time and took it with for four days in Canada….she called him on the way and let him have it…haha. So, he finishes the book and I picked it up to see what it is about…..I had to give it back to him today and I am now in it 200 pages…..for stupid….guess I have to go out and buy it!!!
