This review is from: Larger Than Life (Kindle Edition)
I am a HUGE Jodi Picoult fan, I can't wait for her next book, Leaving Time, and I was really excited when I read that there was Larger Than Life, a short story prequel to Leaving Time.
In Larger Than Life we follow naturalist, Alice Metcalf, (although not the main character in Leaving Time, she is a key one) as she works in Botswana, where she comes across an elephant calf that has survived the massacre of her herd by poachers. Alice’s decision on what to do with the calf could jeopardise her whole career.
The story feels incredibly well researched and I learnt a lot about elephants, even in this short story. It feels like a Picoult book and she sticks to her fantastic style of writing, as well as making the story thought provoking and funny with amazing characters. I can’t wait for Leaving Time to be released and I was really pleased to see that my Kindle download of Larger Than Life also included the first chapter of Leaving Time.
