A nice read.,
This review is from: Salem Falls (Paperback)
I read this after thoroughly enjoying My Sister's Keeper. Salem Falls isn't as interesting as My Sister's Keeper, but it still gives characters the reader can engage with, a good plot, and a lovely evocation of a small town, with small-town concers. It has echoes of both Millar's The Crucible (evoking a witch hunt of a much more modern variety), and the novels of Anita Shreve with their gentle New England settings. Picoult again gives a story where the various points of view are irreconcilable but (partly at least) understandable. The novel doesn't hit as hard as My Sister's Keeper, but it is a satisfying read, well-written, and neatly crafted.
