"Nineteen Minutes" Jodi Picoult's Twist on Columbine



Jodi Picoult hardly ever fails to write a readable and thought-provoking novel.  This is certainly a novel of our times...recreating the Columbine killings from the perspective a couple of kids caught up in the catastrophic and momentary madness which could change their lives forever. 

You can't help enjoying this book from many different angles.  It's not a light-hearted novel, but it's one that will, as always, make you  wonder "What would I do...?"

Ms Picoult has a new novel coming out soon.  But, I want to direct you to Amazon.com, where you can find an inexpensive "short" of hers for about $2.  Anything written by Jodi is bound to please...so I bought it to fill in the waiting time!

New review coming soon!

On a secondary note:

I'm starting a new review day on Fridays.  The reviews will be up every 3rd Friday of the month.  The review section will be:

"Books from the Past"

I've decided there are far too many great books that I bought and haven't read.  And, there are far too many books in the library and on bookstore shelves that haven't been read.

So, I'm going to read one a month and give a review of the book for you. I hope you'll come and see me on the 3rd Friday of every month to read the reviews. And, I hope it stirs up some new interest in books we've missed that are fantastic reads!

Have a great weekend!  I'll be visiting your blogs and befriending new ones....

Anything Columbine always makes me a little edgy, my best friend used to go there and transfered to another school days before the shootings, so my mind always gets caught up in what could have been had her parents not decided to move on a random whim. The book does look interesting though, maybe I'll have to take a peek :)
