I actually *read* this book, despite the fact that for some reason the above title is listed as an MP3 type thing.
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). Let's be serious Jodi, you are just not meant to write about life on 'death row' in prison in a serious manner. The characters were very one sided and if she was trying to make a point about religion, the death penalty, organ donation, the messiah, murder, (anything really), it fell very flat. I thought this book was very disappointing. Picoult is best when she takes on adolescent issues. She'sgood at writing from the point of view of a 16 year old.
