Re: Jodi Picoult

Most (if not all, from memory) of her books switch times and POVs. It's a technique that takes a little getting used to, but I for one really enjoy how Picoult does it. I don't like amny books that go from a-b, I like to be taken for a bit of a ride.

Again, most of her books start like that. Something dramatic happens right at the start, then it slows down, then it gets going right to the end. I really suggest you read the whole thing, it's a wonderful and very moving book IMO.
Also check out Nineteen Minutes and House Rules if you get the chance (the latter is a little slow but still great).
