あらすじ・解説

The best-selling author of My Sister's Keeper and The Tenth Circle, Jodi Picoult pens her most riveting book yet, with a startling and poignant story about the devastating aftermath of a small-town tragedy.

Sterling is an ordinary New Hampshire town where nothing ever happens - until the day its complacency is shattered by an act of violence. Josie Cormier, the teenage daughter of the judge sitting on the case, should be the state's best witness, but she can't remember what happened before her very own eyes - or can she? As the trial progresses, fault lines between the high school and the adult community begin to show, destroying the closest of friendships and families.

©2007 Jodi Picoult (P)2007 Simon & Schuster

Juvenile perspective

I like Jodi Picoult's writing, but this book seemed like a "young reader's" story of high school cruelties and first love. I thought some of the characters were one dimensional and found myself thinking "yea, yea, I get it." Will try more of her books, but didn't care for this one and did not finish.

Too Long and melodramatic !

Good profile of bullying leading to high school shooting with long emotional sections about being popular, parenting issues, and episodes of bulling. Just too long so that you lose sympathy with the topic and characters.

For a better book on the issue of adolescence and bullying and a better ending read Black Swan Green.

Could be better narrated

the story line got me hooked from the very start. i love how the book starts by building this character of a boy that ends up the way e did. However, my favorite part was the trail!
the only thing i didnt enjoy was the narration. it was kind monotonic and i found myself a bit bored with her sometimes. I wish it was more interactive with the intensity of the story.
overall, i would recommend it

Amazing

Any additional comments?

This is my favorite book of hers so far. The way the story was written in unbelievable. I love how she wrote in all the views of the people involved in the school shooting. I was so amazed by the twist that came later on towards the end. This is defiantly a good book for all families to read, as it covers a lot of important topics.

Great Characters, Great Story

Another wonderful Jodi Picoult book. This author has consistently written terrific novels exploring so many timely topics in such a creative and fascinating way.
In this, we enter into the minds of the students, adults and especially the parents involved in the horrific event perpetrated by the boy, Peter.
Picoult's writing might sometimes be a bit too flowery to suit most of the characters, but I was still swept along with this fascinating exploration of teenagers in this small town.
Carol Monda narrated it very well and used her deep throaty voice expertly for the male characters.
Picoult is really a masterful storyteller. #masterfulWriter #suspensful #ExcellentNarration #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Sad, but good story. I love how Jodi takes real controversial issues and educates us on both sides of the issue....All while entertaining us!

Too Long

Jodi Picoult never shies away from controversial topics and she is true to form in this book. We want to hate the gunman who murdered our children but understand his motives. We want to sympathize with Peter but given the chance he would have been as much as a bully. She lays bare all our weaknesses. There is no hero. My only complaint was the length. It could have been much shorter. I found she plowed the same ground at times. You never relax and sail through a Jodi Picoult novel.

Great insider view of the 'book' beyond the cover

We, as people, as so much more than our cover often portrays ...this book gives a wonderful 'inside the mind' view of the dynamics that make us each tick! While rather 'wordy', the extra words takes the reader to the depths of despair, the heights of hope, the helplessness of fear, and the peace of truth. It keeps you wanting to know more! I work at a High School, and this book provided me with yet another set of eyes and heart to view my students!

do you like similes and metaphors?

What would have made Nineteen Minutes better?

there are some beautiful similes and metaphors in this that book create some deep and thoughtful imagery in the mind of the reader. There are a lot though, and after a while of reading I began to anticipate them and this took me away from the story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jodi Picoult again?

no, probably not.

thought provoking

Worth your time to listen to this story. I nearly rejected the book early on as it was a bit slow and confusing initially setting the scene and introducing the characters. However, once set it had a thought provoking storyline.

Nineteen Minutes - Although subject matter not nice, good storytelling

Nineteen Minutes - Although subject matter not nice, good storytelling
Jodi does write book that give you an all perspective of the characters in the book.
Narration was OK sometimes I felt there could have been a bit more passion in her voice

A story that will stick with you

A well told tale that’s all too common now in America. The characters were memorable and there’s a twist in the end that we didn’t see coming. Picked it up because we will always listen to anything narrated by Carol Monda.

Listen to your dear ones.

The characters are very clear, their behaviour is very annoying. It's an important subject to be brought into the lime light
The goodies are the badies and the badies are the goodies
Why are people so cruel to one another.?
When life is hectic, no time to breathe, every one is on automatic timetable
Take a few moments, listen to your kids, partners, help them to tell you what is really disturbing them.
Help one another before it's too late.

Nineteen Minutes? I wish it had been

I was very disappointed by this. Previously I had listened to by Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult and, even though it wasn't perfect, I did enjoy it.
This book was far too long and some of the personal (family and romantic) scenes were cringe-worthy. The writing had little bite and I had to fast-forward some of the more dreary parts that held no interest for me.
I was determined to finish it, and I did, but I would think twice before buying another of her novels.

6* book

Incredible book beautifully written. Heartbreaking and so sad, devastatingly so.

And Carol Monda! Superb narration, neither the story nor narration usurping the other, another marriage made in audiobook heaven.

Absolutely brilliant. I loved this book and cannot recommend enough. Jodi Picoult gets people and brings characters alive. She shows every different point of view from each character’s prospective. Didn’t want this book to end. Read it. You won’t be disappointed.

The story line was one we hear repeatedly with regards to school yard bullying however the consequences for this town were extensive. The story to very drawn out however the twist at the end startling...

devastatingly good

Jodi Picoult has a brilliant way of writing that sucks you in and leaves you guessing until the end, with so many twists and unexpected turns that you cant help but be engaged. found myself wanting to hear more and struggled to stop listening at times when i had to work etc. the ending was poignant and beautiful.

Difficult subject

I really struggled with this title; I guess I’m really not into this type of story.
I was not able to finish this audiobook.
