Reading: Nineteen Minutes

0804 book: Nineteen Minutes

More from my holiday reading pile.

I've read other Jodi Picoult books, although I don't devour them as must-reads. This one is simultaneously interesting and repellent, given its topic of a school shooting. But she plays with such things in ways that explore them through a multitude of threads, and I'm prepared to take the journey with her.

This book is also in my bedside pile. Am reading "The Tenth Circle" at the moment and find your comment "similarly interesting and repellent" definitely applies to this and most of her stories.

Yes, Lynda, they're page turners and very engrossing, but leave you feeling kinda uneasy, somehow, don't they?
