Nineteen Minutes
Nineteen Minutes | Jodi Picoult
Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and The Tenth Circle, 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 a school shooting. Josie Cormier, the 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. Nineteen Minutes asks what it means to be different in our society, who has the right to judge someone else, and whether anyone is ever really who they seem to be.

I don‘t tend to read Jodie Picoult but this sounds like a thought-provoking read about a school shooting.

Buechersuechtling This was my second Jodi Picoult. I was highly impressed. I like the way she describes mother-daughter-relationships. 😊 3w

JennyM @Cinfhen @trishb @Buechersuechtling I‘ve only read one of hers a long time ago. It wasn‘t for me so I‘ve never picked any others up. But this sounds pretty good. 3w
JenReadsAlot My favorite book by her 3w
JennyM @JenReadsAlot I‘m going to read it -I think it sounds great! 3w
Reggie I read this back in the day when we weren‘t overwhelmed by gun violence and it still had a shock factor. It was pretty good but I don‘t think I‘d read it now. 3w
JennyM @Reggie hummm, maybe I‘ve missed the time for it then. I think it would be a definite library borrow rather than buy 3w

This book started out okay-ish.. and then dragged on forever. Reading reviews I was promised a “big shocking twist” which was really the only thing that kept me listening to find out. In reality it was a big pointless twist. There were also a whole bunch of pointless side plots. What was the point of the dead brother and the dads “happiness calculations?” The number of details that got taken straight from Columbine also really bugged me. 🙄🙄🙄

The book started off slowly but really ended up capturing my attention. I am not a fan of courtroom dramas, but this book had so many sad truths that I got caught up in reading it. Glad I stepped out of my usual genres and read it.

I‘m not sure where to begin with this book. As a mom and as a teacher, it is making me think/worry/question many things. How do I make sure my kids aren‘t bullied? What do I tell them to do if they are? Why aren‘t schools better at addressing the issue? Do my students feel safe and accepted at our school? There are a number of issues in this book that our society doesn‘t spend nearly enough time discussing. 👇👇👇

AmberWB I know that this is a book that will stick with me for a long time. I also think it would be interesting to read for anyone who is reading or who has read 11mo
TheNextBook This is one of my favorites by Picoult. I gravitate more towards her court room dramas and I thought this one was done spectacularly! 11mo

Slow and tense until the last hundred pages, then the pace picks up with courtroom drama. This is a good story that made me wonder what it would be like to be the parent of a child that committed a horrific crime... I give a solid 3/5⭐️s. Thanks to @BurghBookAddict for sending this my way #mfbs

Another mass school shooting, more kids dead. What is it going to take? I'm going to say it, those prayers aren't working. We need to do more. We need people to stand up and be uncomfortable so that a change can be made. I know I will be, what about you? Are our kids worth it to you?
#EnoughIsEnough

Lovesbooks87 I feel the same way enough is enough! Something needs to be done and be done quick. No one should ever have to go to school and worry about not coming home! 2y
RaimeyGallant I'm not a nationalistic type of gal, but this is one of the things I appreciate about Canada, the lack of gun culture. The U.S. is so close, an hour's drive, but so surreal. 2y
Stellina Agreed @Lovesbooks87 It's becoming so common these days and that's terrifying! 2y
See All 6 Comments
Lovesbooks87 @Stellina yes it is! 2y
Stellina @RaimeyGallant That's one of the big arguments here, we do have lots of gun laws in place but it still seems so easy to access them at the same time. I feel for the younger generations having many school years ahead to have to worry about this. Thanks for your comment! 2y
RaimeyGallant @Stellina In Canada, we don't have a second amendment. It's a generalization, but there's a different attitude about guns. For one, we don't think it's our right to own one. 2y

I‘m having trouble putting this one down. I should know better than to browse the first few pages of a Jodi Picoult novel, because I ALWAYS get sucked in. It‘s like I forget every time what a compelling writer she is...I keep classing her as “light read, chick lit” in my mind and she is so much deeper than that. (Not that I don‘t love chick lit light reads; that writing is a talent all its own.)

Bklover I‘ve read this one twice. Loved it. 2y

“In #nineteen minutes, you can order a pizza and get it delivered. You can read a story to a child or have your oil changed. You can walk two miles. You can sew a hem. In nineteen minutes, you can stop the world; or you can just jump off it.” Although I enjoyed this book, its plot contains a high school shooting and can be a trigger topic for some. #novemberbythenumbers

Super delayed, but here is #awesomeautumnbooks #29! Jodi Picoult was my first "adult" author, and she is still one of my favorites. I started with THE PACT and NINETEEN MINUTES, and recently her newest SMALL, GREAT THINGS is my new favorite.

Hollie I loved Nineteen Minutes. 2y
Kaylamburson Me too! @hollie! I remember after reading The Pact though (I think I was in 9th grade), I sobbed for hours on my bed. My mother tried to ban me from ever reading Jodi Picoult again because she thought I was too depressed lol. I would still go to the library and get them anyway 😂😂 (edited) 2y

Pure logic: assuming reality was constant, expectation had to be greater than reality to create optimism. On the other hand, a pessimist was someone with expectations lower than reality, a fraction of diminishing returns. The human condition meant that this number approached zero without reaching it--you never really completely gave up hope; it might come flooding back at any provocation.
