I'm not a likely candidate to read a Jodi Picoult book I have to admit that I've always been a bit of a snob when it comes to the books that my Mom read.She was a big fan of mysteries, but nothing classic (no Christie or Doyle), very little new or challenging (no Steinhauer or Rankin), and practically nothing genuinely pulpy (no Leonard or Chandler) She always preferred the uberpopular stuff and was a massive fan of James Patterson (and his peers), having to go out and buy the books from his mysterymill in hardcover they day they were released.And that's where the snobbery comes in I tried a couple Patterson books early on, but his work is basically crap, so when my Mom discovered Jodi Picoult, adding Picoult to her list of favourite authors and telling me I should read her, I mocked my Mom's taste and avoided Picoult with an internal snicker But then my Mom died last month and my Dad asked me to go through her bookshelves and take anything I wanted And there was Jodi Picoult Now this probably wouldn't have been enough to make me grab a stack of my Mom's Jodi Picoult books, but two other moments pushed me over the edge First, I bought my Mom Jodi Picoult's Wonder Woman: Love Murder for Christmas I found it during a random book store browse and thought it would be a good way to introduce my Mom to graphic novels; second, I read a recent article by Stephen King that was talking about the merits of some of our most popular novelists, praising both Rowling and Picoult while damning Stephanie Meyer (raise a cheer!) and Patterson I am not a big fan of King's fiction, but I do enjoy his essays on popular culture and literature, so his opinions are close enough to mine to take as advice.So I added the Jodi Picoult books grudgingly to my haul and put Salem Falls a random selection straight onto my toread soon stack.I finished Salem Falls last night and I can say that I was completely surprised by how good it actually was and disappointed by how good it wasn't Picoult is a good writer She has serious chops She balances multiple characters with the speed and grace of an excellent screen writer (I'm not talking about screen hacks here), giving us vivid scenes that tell the tale quickly and move on to the next important scene with no meaningless lingering Her dialogue, though occasionally cliche, is believable and serves to make every character an individual And her use of flashback to tell us bits and pieces about her people is superb I was sold on Salem Falls by page ten, and she held my attention right to the end I didn't expect that Even with Stephen King's praise, I was ready to scoff at Picoult's work, but she really impressed me Until Salem Falls shifted from an interesting story about interesting people to a boring Law and Order style courtroom drama.And it didn't have to do that By the third act, Picoult gave up the creativity that was making Salem Falls a compelling read and took the conventional way out, which is a shame because the unconventional would have been so much better and realistic You see, Picoult gave us all the information we needed to know the ending (which was a good one) early in her novel A good reader, paying close attention, knows exactly what's going on The problem is that her characters, smart people all (and brilliant in some cases), have the same information and never see what's happening So we find ourselves waiting to see how the truth is going to come out and save Jack St Bride, how it's going to make the trial meaningless, how it's going to save people's spirits and the bodies of some young women, but we are let down because, apparently, the smart folks in Salem Falls aren't as brilliant as the folks reading about them.Usually I would be a fan of people not being saved because in real life,often than not, that is the case People aren't saved People go on in pain People live with abuse that doesn't end People hurt And when authors are brave enough to let that happen I am generally full of praise I would have been in this case too, had Picoult employed dramatic irony But she didn't There was no pertinent information we had that was withheld from the characters They had the same access to information that we did, and they were oblivious And I was left disappointed I wantedfrom Picoult, and she promisedin the first two acts only to fail us in the third; still, she did enough to win me as a fan (albeit it a mildly skeptical one) I will definitely read her again I just hope she doesn't continue to exceed my expectations only to dash my hopes There is only so much of that I can take. This is one of Jodi Picoult's best novels and one of my favourites Perception is reality in this chilling tale of how one man can be condemned not once, but twice It is a compelling and thoughtprovoking read The author deals with the controversial subject of the novel with perfection, providing plenty of unexpected twists and turns along the way The characters are appealing, believable and welldeveloped I fell in love with the characters of Addie and Jack Salem Falls is an incredibly wellwritten novel which will keep you gripped from beginning to end.A well deserved five stars! This is one of those long reads where you really get to know the characters It is set in Salem Falls, the quintessential American small town, a place where nothing much happens and where people move to because of its low crime rate It is a safe place to bring up a family.However, the residents are in for a shock with the arrival of Jack St Bride, a man with a past He is desperate to hide the fact that he has just been released from prison after having served eight months for a sexual assault – a crime he is adamant that he did not commit When local diner owner Addie Peabody gives him a job and a place to stay it seems that he is finally back on track, especially when he and Addie start to get friendly The story really starts when his secret is discovered and I don’t want to spoil the read for anyone else, but we are soon embroiled in a complex story of lies and betrayals.The storyline really kept my interest with all its twists and turns although it was a little predictable in parts When the twists came, they weren’t so much surprising as confirming the suspicions I already had about what was likely to happen In particular there is a huge surprise at the very end, but again I already had my suspicions about that anyway.It is a long read and there are times when the author tends to stray off the path a bit, particularly when she delves back into Jack’s life story Whilst these help to polarise your impressions of Jack and the man he has become, in all honesty they do not really add that much to the plot.On the whole though, it is a good read.
