      Jodi, Jodi, Jodi. We need to talk. I like you, I really really do. I think you are a fun girl to fly with, and I like hanging out with you when no one else is around to make fun of me when they see us together. But I feel as though our relationship is going the way of Beatrice Sparks. I mean, we really hit it off with My Sister's Keeper. And that first meeting was soooooo gooooood. But this relationship has taken a serious nose dive. 10th Circle, wha? Are you on drugs? Did you have a lobotomy? W [...]

      You can see this review and many others@ readrantrockandroll/2018/Jodi Picoult has been a favorite author of mine since I was in high school. The very first book I read by her was Picture Perfect and I couldn’t wait to read more of her novels. Very few of Jodi Picoult’s stories haven’t captured me in some way. The Tenth Circle is probably one of the most poignant that I’ve read. As a parent, the book really made me question my morals and how far I’d be willing to go to protect my own c [...]

      So if one were to compare popular fiction with dining, you could probably say writers like Danielle Steele, John Grisham, Nora Roberts, etc are the McDonald's of writers. I would probably equate Jodi Picoult with Applebee's. Reading a Jodi Picoult novel is like casual dining. You pretty much know what you're going to get, and you don't expect anything life altering. But it's entertaining, it's atmospheric, and it certainly feels at least a bit more upscale.This novel is about a family: a mom, a [...]

      داستانی متناقض، اما آزار دهنده نیست. پس زمینه داستان مربوط به آلاسکا در ابتدا و بخش اعظمی از انتهای کتاب، جذاب بود. انتهاش هم با یه معما تموم میشه. در کل داستان جالبی بود، اما اونقدرا هم معماش سخت نبود و یه جورایی سوپرایزش در انتها اصلا سوپرایز نبود. روند داستان غیر خطی هستش و م [...]

      Although I had read quite a number of Jodi Picoult books, I was doubtful about this one because it included a lot of the material in comic-strip format and I do not like comics or graphic novels at all. I needn't have worried though, because the story reads just as well just sticking to the text. In fact, especially after the tedious writing and despicable characters of Mercy, I was really surprised by some good storytelling and quite well-rounded characterisations. The research Picoult had put [...]

      This one really fascinated me. I loved the aspect that brings to question does no really have to be said for it to be rape. Then you had the whole messed up family aspect as an undertone. Overall, the characters were mostly likeable but it is the debate of the themes of the book that really keep you grasping for the next page. On to my next Jodi Picoult book in my marathon: Harvesting the Heart

    7. Ashley on said:

      The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult is based on a fourteen-year-old girl, Trixie Stone, who is madly in love for the first time with an upper classman named Jason Underhill, who happens to be the star hockey player of the town and well known by everyone. Sadly though, Jason doesn’t love Trixie; he merely only likes her. Because of this fact, after he broke off their relationship, he was the only one to move on. Trixie became depressed, desperate, and determined. To relieve her emotional pain, she [...]

      We can't keep Jodi Picoult on the shelves in the bookstore where I work. I picked this one up just to see what all the fuss is about and before I knew what was happening I was a hundred pages into it. Picoult's great strength seems to lie in creating a suspenseful build-up as the reader waits for Devastating Tragedy to descend on her characters. Unfortunately, she doesn't seem to know what to do after that and covers up by adding one big 'dramatic' plot twist after another. It could have been sa [...]

    9. Sarah Watts on said:

      WHY do I read these books? They are poorly written. REALLY poorly written. Past the point of believability and, more importantly, enjoyability. The characters are completely one-dimensional and interchangable (I could have sworn I read this book befored then I remembered I very nearly had when I read Nineteen Minutes), and they do nothing but spew these incredibly cliched lines about love and loss and watching your children grow up, or some bullshit. Maybe it wouldn't be bullshit if a) I actuall [...]

    10. Jennifer on said:

      So I think I'm missing something in Jodi Picoult's writing. This is the third book I've ready by her (Pact, Sister's Keeper) and I must say that I've felt the same way about all three. I don't really like the characters. I find it hard to feel sympathetic or compassionate towards anyone in the stories. Not that this is a requirement, but I think liking someone or feeling sympathy or empathy for them, makes for good reading. I will give Picoult credit in that she keeps me hanging on. I haven't no [...]

      A minha opinião em vídeo: youtu/RlF_N7E6mpIMais uma grande, grande história da Jodi Picoult.Prendeu-me do inicio ao fim. A única parte de que gostei menos, foi a do Alasca resto, adorei tudo!

    12. David on said:

      "Women's fiction" and "chick-lit" are not my cup of tea, they are not interesting to me, but no reason why such books shouldn't be given the same consideration as any other genre. I try to avoid genre snobbery (though sometimes it bubbles up with regard to YA fiction and Paranormal Romances) and considering my own tastes range from the highbrow to the very lowbrow, I am not one to cast stones.Or if I am going to cast stones, I want to know what I am throwing them at. I mean, a lot of people thin [...]

    13. Lain on said:

      I'm always up for a good psychological thriller, and Picoult certainly knows how to pick her topics. Memory regression, teen mass murder sprees, suicide pacts - you name it, and she's right there. Though this book approaches the topic from an oblique angle, The Tenth Circle is, at its core, a story about family and the strength of those familial bonds. By tracing what happens to the Stone family after their daughter, Trixie, claims she has been raped by her ex-boyfriend, we investigate what love [...]

    14. Lidia on said:

      Sorprendida, así me he quedado. Porque la novela se inicia de una manera y de pronto da un giro y parece que hablamos de otra cosa, aunque todo queda perfectamente ensamblado al final.Me gusta mucho cómo construye sus protagonistas, las emociones a su alrededor y que se arriesgue a tocar temas delicados.Quizá la protagonista debiera ser Trixie, pero para mí la estrella es su padre, Daniel. Me ha fascinado el personaje.No quiero contar nada más, porque creo que hay que leerla con los menores [...]

    15. Vasia on said:

      Honestly i hated this one. I hated the whole family who were the main characters. I hated them from the first time they appeared until the end of the book. A lot of the stuff that happened didn't make much sense to me, like how did the father just know that his daughter would run off to alaska? anyway, that's just my opinion but, i hated it.

    16. Sarah on said:

      I borrowed "The Tenth Circle" from a friend, and I wanted to like it. Really, I did. And despite the fact that the plot had way too much going on, it might have been okay. But the protaginist-Trixie-ruined even that for me.*spoilers ahead*As a fourteen year old girl-the same age as Trixie-I think I'm being fair in saying she was one of the most unrealistic characters i've ever read. In fact, all the teenagers in the book seemed unrealistic. I've never heard of anybody playing "rainbow" or "daisy [...]

    17. Rose Ann on said:

      First, the storyline is not what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be more about the rape case (judicially), and the family making it through that.Second, I found this a tough topic, being that I have a daughter entering 9th grade. The first 2/3 of this book, I couldnt put down.I thought for sure that Jason commited suicide. It made sense that he would commmit suicide, being that she tested positive for the drug. Then I wonderedw what? How can the story continue?he's dead. [...]

    18. Aoibhínn on said:

      While this book may not be one of Jodi Picoult's best novels, it is nonetheless a very enthralling read. The novel gives you both the point of view from the victim and the accused. It really keeps you guessing as to exactly who is telling the truth! The tale has many completely unexpected twists in the plot that will keep you captivated. Empathetic characters, with a gripping plot, full of twists and turns, that will keep you guessing right up until the end. Fours stars!

      Obiteljska tragedija koja će šokirati roditelje!“Moguće je da čudo nije nešto što se dogodi, već nešto što se ne dogodi.”Veliki sam fan Jodi Picoult još od čitanja njene knjige “Čuvarica sestre svoje” prema kojoj je snimljen istoimeni film. Autorica piše divne knjige s naglaskom na realističnoj fikciji, obiteljskoj drami te tragičnim situacijama s kojima se ljudi ne rijetko susreću.“Ponekad nam se želje ostvare. A ponekad je to najgore što nam se može dogoditi.”Tri [...]

      Lidia me picó con esta lectura cuando no sabía muy bien qué leer y la verdad es que ha acertado de pleno.El libro, dentro de que está escrito para enganchar (con las cosas que eso conlleva), está bien montado y bien narrado, algo que no siempre sucede.Un comienzo que te mete poco a poco (por lo que he leído por ahí, para algunos demasiado poco a poco), para mi lo adecuado. Y después un desarrollo que me ha gustado y llamado la atención.¿Lo mejor? Daniel, el padre de la protagonista. Un [...]

    21. Hope on said:

      I recently read The Tenth Circle by Jodi Picoult. On the surface the Stone family seems normal and perfect, but as the story continues their relationship falls apart. Daniel works at home as a comic book artist to be a stay at home dad for Trixie, while his wife Laura is a full time college professor. Daniel and Laura seem to put their daughter Trixie before everything else in life until the one time she actually needs her parents they aren’t by her side like she needs them to be. When the wo [...]

    22. Samantha on said:

      This book is pure popcorn; the sort of thing you read not for the writing or the social impact, but because the story is like a soap opera you can't quite quit. Granted, I thought her vignettes about family life were compelling and well-written, and touched upon the feelings a family unit generates; and her descriptions of the father-daughter, mother-daughter, mother-father dynamic were really nice but the over all book wasn't really literature. A good weekend read. The interspersion of comic bo [...]

      joy is my new book supplier, so i'm not-so-slowly working my way through her jodi picoult collection far this was my favorite of the three picoult books i've read. firstly, i really liked the comic book theme and the references to Dante's Inferno throughout the book. starting every chapter with a snippit of the Daniel's comic book was a great way to move the story along, through his eyes and mindough i have to admit, i figured out the ending about half way through the novelpicoult's books are a [...]

    24. Lila on said:

      I wasn't overly fond of this book, and am surpised at all of the raving reviews. I am wondering if I missed something along the way? I found that she overworked Dante's Inferno and the little bits of graphic novel merely restated what the reader already knew. I know that the author was trying to show how the lines could bnlur on the typically black-and-white issue of rape, but i felt that she was more biased towards Trixie. In the end we find out that Trixie did nothing to stop Jason, and that f [...]

      When you read the Acknowledgements at the front of the book, you know The Tenth Circle covers a lot of territory: rape, teenagers, Dante, comic book superheroes, Alaska. Don’t say she didn’t say to you right off, “This was a massive undertaking…” No kidding, Jodi! She doesn’t do easy topics.Who has ever had a boyfriend who played hockey? I mean, I grew up near Detroit so I knew about Gordy Howe, the star. But there was no hockey as a high school sport. The story is in Maine so things [...]

    26. Karen on said:

      There’s a surprise at the end of this book that I wish I had known about before I started reading. The Tenth Circle is a metaphorical journey through Dante's Inferno, told through the eyes of a small Maine family whose hidden demons haunt every aspect of their seemingly peaceful existence. Woven throughout the novel are a series of dramatic illustrations that pay homage to the family's patriarch, comic book artist Daniel Stone, and add a unique twist to this gripping story. Trixie Stone is an [...]

    27. Lisa on said:

      First, what I like about The Tenth Circle: Like the only other Jodi Picoult book I've read (My Sister's Keeper), I think the author does a really good job of picking interesting subject matter, and presents it in a compelling way. (As the mother of both a son and two daughters, I found the subject of this particular book to be thought-provoking. Was the 14-year-old protagonist raped, or not?) Picoult does an outstanding job of showing the flaws of her characters, and I think it's the highest com [...]

    28. Diane Chamberlain on said:

      Not my favorite of Picoult's books, although I admire her attempt to try something different by the inclusion of the comic (which I skipped over. Sorry). As a writer myself, I'm well aware that not every book can be five-star worthy, and it certainly won't stop me from reading more of Picoult's work.

    29. Ettore1207 on said:

      Della Picoult avevo apprezzato Le case degli altri. Questo, invece mi è apparso prevedibile, poco interessante, con personaggi bidimensionali e per i quali non ho sentito nessun feeling. Il finale in Alaska è artificioso e sbrodolato. Sono intransigente, lo so, ma non posso tacervi la mia irritazione quando trovo cose del genere: giubbotto North Face, coltello X-Acto, cereali Life, lavatrice Kenmore, tazza Dixie, trucco Sephora, confezione di Pixi Stix, latte di cocco Thai, ecc Ci sono anche i [...]

    30. Sarah Swann on said:

      Really good! Jodi always takes a tough topic, in this case it is rape, a case of he-said-she-said, and turns it to keep you guessing of what is actually happening. The whole time, twists and turns kept me second guessing everything. The only thing I didn't enjoy was a section about Alaska. It was strange and didn't make much sense to the story. That's why I knocked off a star. But I always enjoy Jodi and this was no different!
