Change of Heart
Can we save ourselves, or do we rely on others to do it? Is what we believe always the truth?
One moment June Nealon was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, sh...more
And while Jodi uses a basic formula, her novels are anything but simple or predictable. The other novels I've read have covered stem cell research, teenage date rape, and school shootings.
What makes me such a fan of Jodi's novels is that rather than use an om...more
"In the space between yes and no, there's a lifetime. It's the difference between the path you walk and one you leave behind; it's the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are;"
"When you're different, sometimes you don't see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the one person who doesn't."
"I imagine the touch of someone...more

Right away I had problems with Change of Heart. Can a person who is currently serving time in prison even be an organ donor? Somehow, the environment they live in makes me think that they cannot due to being exposed to so many blood-borne diseases and questionable behaviors...more
The story is beautifully crafted, and Jodi Picault has an amazing way of weaving different lives together to describe the moments in which they intersect. It also got me thinking about forgive...more

Would you give up your vengeance against someone you hate if it meant saving someone you love? Would you want your dreams to come true if it meant granting your enemy's dying wish?
One moment June Nelson was happily looking forward to years full of laughter and adventure with her family, and the next, she was staring into a future that was as empty as her heart. Now her life is a waiting game. Waiting for time to heal her wounds, waiting for justice. In short, waiting for a miracle to...more
But it appears that Piccoult has gone the way of mega popular writers that bang out books once a year for the sake of, well, banging out books once a year. The formula she always uses (and t...more
I'm up and down with Jodi Picoult and this latest novel certainly reminded me why I sometimes can't stand her writing. It's very stereotypical (almost offensively so).

The characters were very one sided and if she was trying to make a point about religion, the death penalty...more

Contudo, Shay, o assassino, tem apenas um único desejo antes de morrer: doar o seu coração a Claire (irmã de Elizabeth) que precisa urgentemente de um transplante de coração.
Será June capaz de por de...more
This book was fine and fun, but I don't think I'd recommend this to anyone as a starting point for Jodi Picoult. It's not one...more
