I have not read any of Jodi Picoult's books before, and I am anxious to read tomorrows chapter. The prologue hooked me.

Gotta Love Jodi

February 19 2007, 12:39 PM 

I just love this author. All her books are on my must read list. I have been reading her newer stuff and haven't gotten around to the older books. Jodi writes books faster than I can read them. I'm enjoying this read and will have to find time to fit it in this summer between book club selections. I hate when life gets in the way of reading.

You can't go wrong with Jodi

This is one of my faves by her. I read them all and am a devoted fan. Happy to see you are featuring one of her books. I look forward to each of her releases - Nineteen Steps is on its way.

Been hooked....

on Jodi since "The Pact". I've missed a couple of her most recent ones but am really enjoying this one. I am a little confused about whether Paige was dreaming she left her husband/child or if she really indeed did leave them so I know I will be getting this book to read the whole story(!)

I also love Jodi Picoult. I experienced all sorts of complex emotions when I read the first excerpt of this story - when I usually have questions and more logical thinking that help me absorb the beginning of a novel. This one is already a must read for me. PS Hi BettyF

I have not read any of Jodi Picoult's books either, but this one is very interesting. I hope to read more of her books.

Great Read

If you want a great one by Jodi, read "My Sister's Keeper". This one really packs a punch. I have enjoyed all her books. She picks a subject, often controversial and really explores it and all the emotions belonging to the topic. Some real thought provoking stuff!

I really liked the last Picoult book we had in the book clubs last year. "Disappearing acts" I think it was. I love the style and rhythm she writes with. Good flow and interesting plot. This book sounds equally interesting. I see a pattern forming here: mothers and their insecurities in their life roles... I am interesting in seeing how this one plays out.

Remembrances..

February 20 2007, 3:10 PM 

The author's words bring to mind and heart the images of those first months of birth when I was mesmerized by my son; when his very breath took my own away...
And yet I can stand beside the young girl whose Mother left her with only memories of that which was - or could have been.
I am delighted to read this - and to read the sharings of others.

I too, Like Jodi Picoult

The first book of Picoult's I read was "Vanishing Acts," which I read as a Dear Reader selection. I went on to read "Plain Truth," which I also enjoyed. Thank you for introducing me to this author.

Harvesting the Heart

February 21 2007, 4:23 PM 

I don't remember reading her previous book in the club, but I am really enjoying this one. It hits very close to home. My mother-in-law was abandoned by her mother as a child. They were reunited about 40 years later. My mother-in-law abandoned my husband and his siblings when he was 2. They reunited in his late teens. My sister-in-law is going through a really hard time right now and we are concerned about her leaving because she talks about it all the time. I'm really starting to wonder if I should put this one off until another time. I keep crying at my desk at work!
