Book 17: Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult.
As mentioned in a previous post, it took me three whole weeks to read this book!
But… I have to say, I really don’t know how to feel about this book. I am an avid Picoult fan, I have an entire bookshelf dedicated to her, and I consider her to be my favourite author. Alas, change of heart… Did it disappoint? Yes. Did I like it? I think so. Am I confused? Uh huh!
The plot was unlike Picoult’s previous work, focusing on religion rather than law, miracles rather than morals. It took me a long time to get into it, there were such strong references to Green Mile that it was just unoriginal.
I finished the book (and I’m glad I did, the second half was much better than the first) but I am still just a bit confused.
A rather confounded 5/10
