    Jodi Picoult fans?

    Any fans of Jodi Picoult on here? I absolutely love her books and her writing style.

    What is everyone's favourite book of hers?

    I love My Sister's Keeper - it was the first book I read by Jodi Picoult and I still love it. But I also love Nineteen Minutes. Think she writes about really gripping, interesting subjects and her books really make you think.

    I have about 4 of her books, and ive of not read them yet.. when i go back upstairs i'll make a not of the titles.

    one if them is my sisters keeper,i got this way before there was talk of the film, ive seen the film and i wasnt that impressed with it..im sure the book is different though as they change so much in movies and sometimes you cant get into the characters as much.

    Plain Truth - I love that one too. Such an interesting idea and setting for that storyline.

    I definitely think the book of My Sister's Keeper is better than the film. I did like the film but they changed quite a bit of the storyline. The book is worth a read

    I love her books!!!

    My favourite one so far is Nineteen Minutes! That one came to work with me every day (back in the days when I had an hour for lunch) and I couldnt put it down...was gutted when I finished it!

    My Sisters Keeper was good too...Ive got almost all of her books (on last check think there is only 6 I havent read!) Just started Salem Falls last night.

    Tenth Circle was also made into a film and was on channel 5 earlier on this week (think it was Wednesday!)

    I really like Jodi picoult's books. The first one I read was the pact and then nineteen minutes which is a really good read.

    Ive quite a few of her books, enjoyed every one except second glance which I struggled to get into.

    At the moment I'm reading Sing You Home, I'm about halfway through & really enjoying it.

    Any other fans out there? Anyone read Lone Wolf, her new book, yet?

    The first book I read was My Sister's Keeper (recommended by my biology teacher when we studied genetics), since then I've read almost all of her books. I haven't read Harvesting the Heart, or her two newest books. I quite enjoyed House Rules, her portrayal of Asperger Syndrome was more accurate than most books and films manage. I think my favourites would be Handle with Care, Songs of the Humpback Whale, and Plain Truth.

    I love Jodi Picoult, she tackles really interesting ethical dilemmas in her books and she does it so well!! Aside from My Sisters Keeper, I really liked Perfect Match. Will have to read a few others of hers soon!

    She has a new book out that's like a fantasy young adult romance. Co-written with her daughter. I quite like the sound of it, sounds very fairy tale like.

    My sister's keeper is on channel 4 tonight. Be warned, you will need a full box of tissues because I cried through the whole film. And I don't cry at films as a rule.

    The ending of the film is different from the book. I found the film more of a tear jerker than the book. I've read quite a lot of her books but there's a few I haven't read yet. Ive enjoyed all of the except second glance which I didn't enjoy at all and gave up on.
