Superb, many-stranded and grimly topical . . . Picoult binds together precarious alliances with sensitivity, giving depth to characters without losing pace. Inhabited by contradictory, flawed individuals, this intelligent novel draws suspense, moral complexity and a stunning final twist out of what initially seemed a monochrome situation (The Times)
A horrifying, close to real-life read, this novel is incredibly thought-provoking (Sun)
A gripping and chilling read, NINETEEN MINUTES is reminiscent of Arthur Miller's play The Crucible in the way it captures the claustrophobic atmosphere of small town America, where members of a community struggle to cope with their grief and shortcoming in a world they hardly recognize anymore (Daily Express)
Slick, emotive and as readable as ever (Daily Mail)
Jodi Picoult explores the issues of bullying and teenage school shootings in this riveting, thought-provoking and compelling number one bestseller.See all Product description

One of my favourite Jodi Picoult books ever written.
One beautiful march morning, a student enters his high school and starts shooting. He kills 10 and leaves their small town reeling. But look a little deeper - you'll be page turning like there's no tomorrow.
This was stunning. A tome of almost 600 pages - every one of them complete gold.
I cannot understand why they would change such an ending in the film but I am glad I did read the book. This is my first book by Jodi Picoult and I thoroughly enjoyed it and have now downloaded "The Pact" by her which I've started and already can't put down.
This is a great book with a lot of moral issues and gives you a lot of food for thought. You won't be disappointed.
If you've read a Picoult novel before, you'll be on familiar ground in terms of structure; there is the usual crime and then twists and turns until the trial at the end. There are some subtle changes though, this time we are taken back and forth in time so we can better understand what turned Peter Houghton, a high school misfit, into a murderer. It's a credit to the writing that she manages to make us feel sympathy for a character that has done something so incomprehensible.
Also in the mix are a couple of familiar characters, Jordan Mcafee (the defence lawyer from 'Salem Fallls' and 'The Pact') and Patrick Ducharme, the POlice Officer (from 'Perfect Match'.) I won't give too much away, but I'm glad that Patrick has a happy ending.
I'm really glad I read this book. If you've been disillusioned with Picoult's writing of late, you'll welcome this return to form.
