Small great things kept me listening every moment I could I listen to many books but this title stands out above all.
It’s challenging very disturbing and uplifting I highly recommend it
Being a fan of her style of writing I may be a little biased. I enjoyed the book even though the accusation thrown against the main character was a bit far fetched and incredulous.
Putting that aside, there was a lot in this book that helped me understand the racial currents and prejudice that continues to exist in our societies. This can be easily translated to other nations with religious or racial discrimination.
I thought the female characters were engaging and their narrative was what held me in the book. The acharacter of Turk, the skinhead supremacist was a bit drawn out and did not quite ring true. I found my mind drifting away at those points. I guess, it was somehow important to show the intensity of the hate that these people can harbour for whatever reason. I still thought that it took too long to depict it in the book. The remarkable turnaround was somehow too good to be true.
Overall, quite a good read. Definitely wakes you up to full appreciation of the racial tensions and motivation behind people's actions and reactions.
The narrators were excellent.
Jodie Picoult has done it again. This book is amazing, thought provoking and challenging. Recommended.
This was an important story well told. As an open minded person who was raised to love and respect everyone iI was surprised by my reaction to this book. We can have underlying prejudices due to ignorance of the truth. I happy to say this book made me rethink some ideas I had about what it is like to be the subject of prejudice. I know nothing but I am willing to learn.
