Book Review: Nineteen Minutes
Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
It was eerie to read this latest novel by Picoult, which features a school shooting, just days after the Virginia Tech tragedy.
Nonetheless, this is another stellar novel from Picoult, switching from past to present, character to character to rebuild what drove a young man to shoot his schoolmates, and the aftermath and trial that followed.
I know there is always a twist to Picoult's books, but I didn't quite see the one at the end of this novel, which is a nice surprise. As always, Picoult's writing is luminous and evocative, and her storytelling is wonderful as is unravels before your eyes. I tore through this novel in no time.
Highly, highly recommended from one of my favorite authors!
