    When I read this book a few years ago, I had already gotten through four other Jodi Picoult My Sister s Keeper, The Tenth Circle, Vanishing Acts, and The Plain Truth, in case anyone cares I feel that we had a good relationship Sure, after the first exciting fling things got predictable pretty fast gee, I wonder if this one will have dramatic courtroom scenes , but Jodi was still able to keep me hooked Then I read Nineteen Minutes, and decided it was time to call it off One big problem When I read this book a few years ago, I had already gotten through four other Jodi Picoult My Sister s Keeper, The Tenth Circle, Vanishing Acts, and The Plain Truth, in case anyone cares I feel that we had a good relationship Sure, after the first exciting fling things got predictable pretty fast gee, I wonder if this one will have dramatic courtroom scenes , but Jodi was still able to keep me hooked Then I read Nineteen Minutes, and decided it was time to call it off One big problem with the book is that I was expected to think or at least consider that a kid being bullied for years is an excuse to shoot up a high school, killing not only the cliche popular jerks but also several innocent bystanders No I m sorry, no It didn t help that the bullied kid in question was utterly unlikable, as was his tragic friend with the abusive jock asshole boyfriend every high school related convention and cliche i...

    This is what I have come to understand about Jodi Picoult She takes a controversial or emotionally charged topic School shootings Childhood leukemia Amish people Then she centers that topic around terribly cliched characters and cranks the schmaltz meter to 11 The novels alternate between characters points of view so quickly that Picoult rivals most TV news stations in offering endless shallow ten second bits of information Each little section, offered at a rate that would overwhelm even This is what I have come to understand about Jodi Picoult She takes a controversial or emotionally charged topic School shootings Childhood leukemia Amish people Then she centers that topic around terribly cliched characters and cranks the schmaltz meter to 11 The novels alternate between characters points of view so quickly that Picoult rivals most TV news stations in offering endless shallow ten second bits of information Each little section, offered at a rate that would overwhelm even the worst case of ADHD, ends with a cutesy phrase that is a thin attempt at instilling a flimsy motif Then, near the end of the book, there s a surprise twist that I can only guess is meant to titillate the unsuspecting reader in the midst of their mindless revelry of such crappy writing Of course, that little plot twist is so ridiculous, at least when offered at the rate that Picoult spews them up for the delig...
