The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult

Has anyone else read this? I just finished it...it was riveting. I am still processing it. 5 stars, and I would never have guessed at the twist which is revealed in the last 2 pages. Wow.

I'll have to try Jodi Picoult, I've looked at a couple of her books without being seriously tempted... but your comment has me intrigued. Love a good plot twist.

OK, here comes another serious reading addiction. I read "The Tenth Circle" and absolutely loved it, but then I've always been a fan of graphic novels. Now I've started "Vanishing Acts" and will probably make my way through the collection of Picoult at the local library. I really admire her commitment to research, and I think that's what made "The Tenth Circle" so riveting, the truth in the details. It's not that the style of writing is much different from standard paperback-novel-on-the-grocery-store-bookrack. In fact, some things really irritated me, like the use of "belch" and "belching" far too often; but even that didn't get in the way of the story and its authenticity.

Good to hear about her other works. I kind of want to see what else she's done, too. I agree that she does a great job researching.

I'm enjoying the story and the characters in "Vanishing Acts" but am not thrilled with the device of switching POV. She has four different characters telling the story from their point of view. That wouldn't be too awful in itself, but someone has decided to present each character's narration in a different style of font.... yuck!
