  1. I have read most of Jodi Picoult s books, and they are always entertaining and easy to read However, this one was definitely not my favorite, and I often found it a bit formulaic and poorly executed Maybe it s because I HAVE read so many of her books that I was looking for her signature twist at the ending which an astute reader will guess at halfway through the book, if not earlier , and her characters seem to act in certain ways that are not fitting Spoilers Follow SPOILERS BELOWThe book is ce [...]

  2. This book is a hard book to put down because the entire time you re seeking answers Why What actually happened What made it progress to this Things like that Things that people asked after Columbine, most recently after Virginia Tech, and after all the other school shootings Once again Jodi Picoult tackles a sensitive and controversial issue, in an amazingly strong and dignified manner that doesn t have you choosing sides.She did it to the reader in My Sister s Keeper, where the minute you began [...]

  3. Believe it or not, I have never actually read one of Jodi Piccoult s books before I m not really sure why, but I haven t This particular book has really stayed with me as I finished it, and I think Piccoult makes a few very important points observations.1 Sometimes the perpetrator of a heinous crime is the biggest victim of them all Reading the things that Peter went through sometimes brought me to tears I have never understood how people can treat others so badly, and the behavior of the bullie [...]

  4. 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 b [...]

  6. This is a powerful read After an act of violence is perpetuated at the local high school, those 19 minutes change a New Hampshire town forever The writing is riveting and poignant We are reading about the events leading up to the climax The history of the individuals involved Their mindset It s a lot to take in Especially because the good aren t all good and the bad aren t all bad I think as readers, it puts us in a unique and introspective position as we are not shown only the parts that are co [...]

  7. I can t stop loving this book, if you guys only have the chance to read this Sometimes I find her works destructing, annoying and a good sleeping pill for those people who suffer from insomnia I might be too judgmental but swear, you can take my words after reading her earlier works This time Picoult wanted to portray a community, a school, where innocent students were bullied by the jocks The reality of a typical American school environment for students who suffer to stand out in the crowd and [...]

  8. I tend to rate books by how much they make me think, how much they make me feel, and how much they draw me into their world With an almost obsessive interest in Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, Nineteen Minutes gets high marks from me The book starts with the scene of a school shooting where you feel a disgust for the kid doing the shooting and sorrow for the victims but as you glean settings from flashbacks you come to sympathize with everyone in the book as a victim, each experiencing loss of di [...]

  9. The only other Picoult book I read was My Sister s Keeper, and I enjoyed it quite a bit Nineteen Minutes is a favorite among most people, so I had this one slated to read whenever I wanted a quick summer read.For the last 100 or so pages, I could hardly put it down Her formula for keeping the reader engaged works very well.But I had some issues with this book that annoyed the hell out of me Firstly, I have never come across so many stupid and needless analogies Or are they similes WhateverHere a [...]

  10. 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 wor [...]

  11. Exceptionally written novel that shows us what s in the mind of a fictional school shooter, what led him to commit the crime, and how his actions affect the lives of his family and friends Picoult is a master at character development.

  14. Nineteen Minutes is Jodi Picoult s most recent novel, and I predict it will become her best seller to date It focuses on the events leading up to and following a high school shooting.Peter Houghton, picked on by school mates from the first day of kindergarten, enters Sterling High, and in nineteen minutes kills ten and wounds another nineteen students In typical fashion, Picoult shapes her story by providing various perspectives We are able to put the story together from Peter s perspective as w [...]

  15. Picoult writes books that are easy to read, yet usually compelling topics that are presented in a way that easily spark thought and discussion If you read enough of them I ve read 4 and picked up on this trend in the second book , you can see that they are forumulaic in plot design and pace This makes it easy to guess what the big twist at the end of her book will be For instance, I suspected very early that Josie shot Matt, really as soon as it was mentioned that he had two bullet wounds where [...]

  16. This is an amazing story from one of my favorite authors The subject matter is really hard to deal with, especially if you have teenagers or have ever been ridiculed at school She handles it superbly and puts us right into the action Feeling the anguish, the anger and the hurt Showing us how true it is that there is always two or sides to every story We are forced to grapple with what is just and right How far our culture will go to be accepted and what a huge impact a teenagers social status h [...]

  17. This was my first Piccoult novel I really liked it Reflecting on this has made me think I need to re visit some of her writing This I look forward to Sometimes I need a reminder.

  18. This was the first Jodi Picoult novel I ve picked up, despite having her recommended by several of my friends for various novels I have to admit the plot summary was intriguing enough to pique my interest I grew up in a world where school shootings hadn t happened yet Columbine happened when I was a senior in high school, just a couple months short of graduation I remember the shift in collective conciousness at the time, how that one terrible event affected us all After all, it could ve been an [...]

  19. I really feel this book well haunt me It left a strong impression on my heart I loved the writing style which gave me a window into all sides of the story from parents of the students, victims, lawyers, judge, shooter, shooter s parents and so on Was a mystery that made me continue to figure out what all went down I would recommend this to anyone, it opened my eyes If my kids were older teens I d like them to read this as well Bullying is a huge problem and this was an extreme case Kids never sh [...]

  20. My introduction to Jodi Picoult was through the book My Sister s Keeper, which was one of the best books that I read last year Not so much for her writing, but for the subject matter and the way she crafted the book to have every side of a controversial topic be addressed from a first person perspective by many characters I quickly picked up several of her novels after I wept like a baby reading my Sister s Keeper Every time I was disappointed But I keep trying I picked up the audio of her late [...]

  21. Is there a shelf for a book I have to stop reading because I can t stand something about it In this case, that the writer is a machine that swallows magazines whole and spews out a topic of the month.

  22. Well, I ve gone all over GR saying negative things about Jodi Picoult which leaves me blushing when I write I really, really liked Nineteen Minutes I held out as long as I could while reading it I admit, I am compelled to read books about school shootings, such as Columbine by Dave Cullen and We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver And so, despite my repeatedly dissing Jodi Picoult, of course I had to read 19 Minutes And I have a number of complaints the ripped from the headlines hook Pico [...]

  23. Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence Josie Cormier, the daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state s best witness, but she can t remember what happened before her very own eyes or can she As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show destroying the closest of friendships and families Jodi Picoult has a talent for making you fee [...]

  24. A review can t do this book justice, but I feel I must say something It s been a long time since I finished a novel feeling so emotionally drained and, yet, so rewarded Reading this perhaps Picoult s most infamous novel is an experience unlike any other Do yourself a favor and check it out, now My favorite read of 2017 so far.

  25. I ve read quite a lot of Picoult now I started on a high note My Sister s Keeper, which apart from the cop out ending, was a really fantastic read I mostly enjoyed her books with the exception of Salem Falls which failed to ring any bells for me at all, but this book, Nineteen Minutes was tedious It started off ok, but one major character turned out to be a red herring and just another woman in need of a f and her opposite number, who looked like she was going to be an uber earth mother, was a m [...]

  26. As the victim of bullying while growing up, I found this book especially intriguing In my lowest moments, what lengths would I have gone to in order to make it stop I was anxiously looking forward to seeing how the author would resolve this question However, just as in her other book I read, My Sister s Keeper, she copped out in the end and chose not to resolve the issue at all Everyone praises the author for being brave enough to tackle these issues and yet, at the last moment, she chickens out [...]

  27. This novel is an absolutely compelling and brilliant read The tragic premise of a school shooting by a lonely nerdy boy, Peter, who has been bullied constantly since he started school for being different and until one day after years of torment and abuse, he finally snaps and takes a backpack full of guns to school and he kills ten people Jodi Picoult skilfully explores the events leading up to and following the shooting from all angles, and she does it so subtly that before you know it, you are [...]
