Roy99,

My heart goes out to your sister. It is sad that she had to live with that for so long and then to keep it secret for even longer! I am glad that you were there for her. I am sure it was comforting for your sister to finally be able to share it with you.

I agree with everything you wrote about Jodi Picoult's novels...and I also wonder what is next. How many subjects can she research and then write such poignant novels about? :smileyhappy:Doug


Yes, Roy and Doug
 
It really surprises me when she writes a new book, what will she spring on us now!  So many surprises, and skips and turns, you can't know where she is going until the end. And she can tie up a novel the best I have ever seen. She doesnt leave any loose ends. I hope I am able to read hundreds  of them.  Happy reading. Linda(va)

It sounds like you had a wonderful trip! It would be great to have you as a goodreads friend. I go by "Doug Hobbs" on Goodreads. :smileyhappy:Doug

Linda,

What group are you in? Is it a private group? I moderate several groups and I am in quite a few other groups. Thankfully, the groups I moderate are slow moving - The groups are "Debbie Macomber's novels", "Nicholas Sparks novels", "Jasper Fforde and the Thursday Next series", "Lilian Jackson Bruan - the Cat Who novels", "Quirky Humor" (which I inherited when a couple of friends left Goodreads), and "In Defense of Food/Vegetarian/Vegan".

I really enjoy finding out what "Friends" are adding to the "read" or "to-read" lists. The downside is my own "to-read list" has expanded faster than I can read. :smileyhappy:Doug

Hey: Doug, how about sending me a message on this board and letting me know the name of the group you are in. Would love to share notes on Debbie MacComber and all the rest. So whichever you wish. Just send me a message and let me know. Looking forward to it.  Linda

Linda,

The Debbie Macomber group on Goodreads is called "Debbie Macomber's novels." The other groups I moderate are above, if any of the others interest you. The Debbie Macomber and Nicholas Sparks groups are the more active ones. Thank you :smileyhappy:Doug

Re: Jodi Picoult fans?

I just finished reading my first Jodi Picoult book and I am now officially hooked on her books now. I just finished reading "The Tenth Circle" boy was that a great book to read. At times did want to put it down. From the start I was hooked. She knows how to grab her audience from the start. A lot of mystery going on in the story. But three people who are really lost and don't know who they are and trying to find themselves. I just seen the movie also I prefer the book more did not really like the movie at all. Can't wait to read the book again.

I didnt realize that they had made a movie of 10th circle. I will have to see about watching it. Is it still at the theaters or is it a rental yet? All of her books would make great movies though. She does write so much mystery into each one of her novels.

Re: Jodi Picoult fans?

I too thoroughly enjoyed The Tenth Circle book.   The movie was okay, but not nearly as good as the book.  I thought they should have made more references to the comics & Dante's Inferno in order to bring the book to life.

 

kiakar, the movie was shown on the Lifetime tv channel.  You might want to check the Lifetime channel website to see when it will be shown again.  They have a tendency to show movies over frequently.   It will probably come out on DVD, but I haven't heard when.

Re: Jodi Picoult fans?

about 2 years ago, jodi picoult came to speak to my book group. her presentation was really excellent. she does an enormous amount of research for each of her books. has she ever participated on any of these boards?

Plain Truth is a good one. That was the first book I read that was by her. I also have Salem Falls, but I haven't read it yet. Started to, but didn't finish it.

 Also, if you like her, you might like Philippa Gregory. She wrote The Other Boeylyn Girl. 

Just a suggestion.

Yes, TWJ. Jodi Picoult has been on the barnes and noble clubs. I believe it was My Sister's keeper. We discussed 19 minutes with a moderator. That is the only time I can remember her being with Barnes and noble clubs.

Thanks Roy99. I do not watch movies as much as I read so sometimes I miss some I would like to see.

Re: Jodi Piccolo fans?

I just finished Keeping Faith, which I really enjoyed.  It's about a 7 year old girl that starts to have visions of God, can heal people, and has stigmata.  This book is really well written and is hard to put down.  This was the first Jodi Picoult book that I read and it made me an immediate fan of hers.

Re: Jodi Picoult fans?

I discovered Jodi Picoult last spring with The Pact, and I have quickly read most of her other books. My Sister's Keeper, Keeping Faith, Change of Heart and Plain Truth are my other favorites. I have to say that Mercy is the only one that I didn't really enjoy. It is the only one that took me more than a week to read; I couldn't put the others down. It looks like her next book will deal with abortion...the excerpt on her Web site is a good teaser!

I suggest your read Salem Falls next.  The boy's attorney from "The Pact" returns in "Salem Falls."  As usual, it's another good read from Jodi Piccoult.  :smileyhappy:
