Jodi Picoult's - Second Glance (1 Viewer)


Fallen Angel

Just heard about Jodi Picoult's book 'Second Glance' which asks the question 'Do will love across time? Or in spite of it?

I am interested in the love across time fragment. And have heard the book is pretty groundbreaking. AS yet I haven't had a chance to get a copy but was interested to know if anyone here has read it and what they thought of it.

And is this question answered within the book? And how is it groundbreaking?

I haven't read that book of hers in particular, but have read her 'My Sisters Keeper'. If the rest of her books are anything to go by - a very engaging plot, but too many characters and the ending was shit.

Of course I have, what sort of question is that? If I never read a book that I liked, I wouldn't read, and therefore wouldn't be writing. All favourites:

- The Series of Unfortunate Events
- Most novels by Francesca Lia Block
- Walking Naked (Alyssa Brugmann)
- The Virgin Suicides (Jeffrey Eugenides)
- Anastasia (Colin Falconer)
- The Bridget Jones books
- The Bride Stripped Bare (Nikki Gemmell)
- Stars (Louise Lawrence)
- novels by Melina Marchetta
- most novels by John Marsden
- Queen Kat, Carmel and St Jude Get A Life (Maureen McCarthy)
- Little Children (Tom Perrotta)
- One True Thing (Anna Quindlen)
- Sybil (Flora Rheta Schreiber)
- Spare Parts (Sally Rogers-Davidson)
- Flesh Tones (M.J. Rose)
- And What About Anna? (Jan Simoen)
- Hospital (Polly Toynbee)
- I for Isobel series (Amy Witting)
and the one I'm currently reading, The Summer Garden (Paullina Simons), I'm enjoying.

I don't read in one set genre, and most books that I've listed I've never seen a thread for, so why otherwise would I mention it? Does this answer your question?
