This book had me pissed off almost the entire time....but that's the great thing about Picoult's writing. She pulls you into the story so much, that you feel what the characters feel. I could not put it down because I wanted so badly to see how everything would play out. A suspicion I had about a character early in the book was put to rest when nothing had come of it near the end, but then BAM!!! Right there it was in the very last sentence, and I was literally left with my jaw hanging to the floor. Great book!!

"Salem Falls" was hard to put down. The characters' experiences provide different viewpoints on similar topics, that is, false accusation of rape vs. reactions of rape victims. Presented in flashback form, characters are developed and their motivations become understood. Jodi Picoult is effective at adding to the layers of the story as well as in peeling back layers of the different characters' personalities. She is also good at making situations real, and attacking issues in our society today, and this novel is a great example of that...I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read.

This is the second book I've read by Jodi Picoult. It took me a few chapters to get into it, and I'm sure glad I didn't give up, as I usually do. It's an engrossing story and kept me reading well into the night.

Jodi Picoult writes about current social issues. In Salem Falls she addresses child molestation and the shadow that follows those who have been accused of child molestation. Really good book. Hard to put down because of the writing and subject.

Picoult is an excellent writer. She keeps the reader very involved. It was hard to put this one down, and there are surprises down to the very last paragraph.

How could one man be so likeable and have such a shitty life?? I, as another reviewer, was mad at man kind and those snot nose girls thru most of the book. But to put this book down is impossible, being mad is what spurs you on page after page. Before i knew it it was way past time for me to turn out the lighs, I had finished story, and i was in love with Jodi Picoult books. Such emotions this book will bring out! You will find yourself rooting for the looser and loving him.

As usual Jodi Picoult makes you think. Story about a man wrongly accused of raping a young girl & how it changes his life forever. Spends time in jail & then when he tries to move on with his life in a new town word spreads about his past. Will he again be sent to jail? Did he commit rape? You'll have to read to find out!

I couldn't get into this book. Picoult jumps around a LOT in her writing and I gave up after about 100 pages. Her style takes some getting used to and makes it difficult to latch onto the story. I don't think I'll try any of her other books either.

This book is what got me started reading Jodi Picoults novels. I enjoyed so much how she handles life topics. She makes you "feel" what the characters are feeling. You will be left with thoughts about her books long after you have finished reading them. This book is a page turner and would highly recommend this book along with all of her others for reading.

I couldn't finish this one. With Picoult, I feel that it's either a hit or miss and to me this one was a miss. I couldn't keep reading because the plot was too far fetched.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down. I've been reading all of Jodi Picoult's books and haven't found one yet that can compare to My Sister's Keeper - until this one! She has a way making you empathize with her characters. She even brought back some characters from The Pact. And I can say, she truly surprised me in the end with this one.

This is a definite read for all Picoult fans.

This was the first Jodi Picoult book I read, and I bought it new because she is so popular with other PBS members. I was not disappointed. Her style and the small towns shoe writes about remind me of The Gilmore Girls, but with more crime. The characters, while not all likable, are believable and she does a good job of at least making their behavior understandable under the circumstances.

I have heard some criticize Picoult for not being literary enough, but I don't think that criticism is warranted - she writes entertaining books that will make yuo think.... though perhaps not very hard.

I just finished this book and really liked it. I almost couldn't continue reading after the sexual assault charge was brought against Jack. I was so mad at the girls. But I'm glad I overcame it and finished the book. It is very engrossing. I was not surprised by the last few sentences. I had been suspicious from the beginning and just knew that was how it would play out. I strongly recommend this book.

A book that makes you think that no one has the right to jump to conclusions about a person's guilt or innocence especially in charges of rape. A good reminder of that fact.

In the beginning 1/3 section of the book, I began to think this was finally a Jodi Picoult book that I would not like. The beginning was not drawing me in. It took me awhile to get into it, but once I did WOW! I should have remembered from reading her other books that she never lets the reader down. As always she allows the reader to view different sides of the story, and feel for the various characters. As one reviewer before me stated, the last line of the novel confirmed my suspicions about one of the characters. Don't let the beginning of the book stop you from reading the rest; you, the reader, will want to finish, as the end will bring many surprises as Jodi Picoult's other books have done.

The past eighth months Jack was a prisoner convicted of statutory rape. He was offered a plea bargain and his only way to get over with it was accept the offer even if the accusations against him where a mere fiction of a young girls diary.

Trying to get his act together, get a life back he arrives in small town Salem Falls and gets a job as dishwasher in Addie Peabody's Do-Or-Diner. Dutifully he registers at the sheriffs office as a sexual offender.
His relationship with Addie soon intensifies bound through Jack's closeness and fear of being touched and Addie's mourning for her daughter who died years ago. When everything seems to be going it's way the town learns of Jack's former conviction there is no way they are willing to accept a person like him in their little, peaceful town.

Gillian Duncan as a close circle of friends, a coven. The girls are trying to witches, doing good for the people in their town when one of their spells actually works. They decide if their powers are such strong they also could do good for people who have been done wrong by others. Seeing Jack for the first time Gillian develops a crush on him and has to live with his rejection. Only she doesn't want to accept it.

So it happens that Jack after he got terribly beaten up, had a fallout with Addie, runs drunkenly through the woods when he disturbs one of the girls rituals.
The next day he's arrested for the rape of Gillian Duncan.

-

What disturbs me most was the fact that Jack is a character I am used to from my own child/teenage hood. A caring person, a teacher rarely seen these days and certainly bound to suspicion in the United States. It showed me again the differences in attitude between where I come from and where I live today. Being a male teacher and/or coach and being male in the U. S. seems to be just what it is these days: a hot seat I never would want to sit in. It is terrible to know what can be interpreted into a friendly slap on the back.

However, the book keeps a few surprises that aren't mentioned in the books description but as you read they just seem normal, fitting into the plot.
Although I think the ending fell out quite flat without much surprises at that point, it is entertaining from the beginning to the end.

I don't know if it is because this is the first Picoult book i read or not, but i have loved this one the most. I have enjoyed all of them, they are all good, but this one stands out above the others for me. It is so close to truth. I can see this story line of a student telling lies about a teacher actually happening. It is well written and i turned pages non stop until i reached the ending. Then sat and fumed at the injustice of the whole concept, then realized i truely enjoyed this plot. I was hooked on Picoult novels from then on. Since i have already traded this i think i will reorder and have it sent to my BFF.

From the back cover: "Jack St.Bride was once a beloved teacher at a private girls' school-until a student's crush sparked a powder keg of accusation and robbed him of his career and reputation. After a devastatingly public ordeal that left him with an eight-month jail sentence and no job, Jack resolves to pick up the pieces of his life. He takes a job washing dishes at Addie Peabody's diner in the quiet New England village of Salem Falls and slowly starts to form a relationship with her.
But a quartet of teenage girls harbours dark secrets-and they maliciously target Jack with a shattering allegation. Now, at the centre of a modern-day witch hunt, Jack is forced once again to proclaim his innocence: to a town searching for answers, to a justice system where truth becomes a slippery concept written in shades of grey, and to the woman who has come to love him."

Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult

Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Audio Book

All Jack St. Bride wanted to do was find somewhere quiet to start his life over; somewhere people wouldn't know who he was or what baggage he brought with him. Unfortunately for him, a small town is not the place to do this. In a small town people come together to protect their own from outsiders at ANY cost.

Gillian Duncan has everything a teenage girl could want â her father is the wealthiest man in town, she is pretty, and has a bunch of girlfriends. She is also carrying around some heavy secrets, such asâ¦she's a witch. One night when her and her friends are celebrating a pagan ceremony things get very out of control. When the dust settles Jack St. Bride is accused of felonious sexual assault on Gillian Duncan â the second time in a year he has been accused of this type of crime! Jack adamantly denies this charge, as he had with the previous one, but no one believes him. How will he ever get out of this situation? How many times does lightning strike the same place?

I had started reading this book in hardcopy about two years ago, but I didn't get very far â for reasons that I can't remember now. Once I started listening to the audio book I quickly fell into the story. The story jumps back and forth in time between Jack's youth, his first charge of sexual assault, and the present (the second charge). It was relatively easy to follow these time shifts because Jack's life is so radically different. One of my favorite characters was Jack's lawyer, Jordan McAfee. His perception of Jack from when he first comes to town, to representing him as his lawyer and flip flopping as to whether he believes him or not mirrored many of my own thoughts. If you have read The Pact, another Picoult book, you might recognize him as the defense attorney for Chris.

The ending will absolutely blow you away! A traditional Picoult book with that hook ending that you never see coming, but once you read it, you recognize all the signs that were pointing there all along. Amazing!

4.5 out of 5 stars!

I am in love with the Crucible,the Salem Witch Trials and, perfectly, Jodi Picoult. The book was nearly impossible to put down. I finished it in three days and it was 434 pages! I was so excited that I had actually guessed the ending of the book, which is definitely hard to do with Picoult's books.

Everyone knows, by now, that you will be pissed of the entire book yet, in the end, you are satisfied. I absolutely adored it. She had me just as mad the entire book as i was with the end of My Sister's Keeper. I don't even know which one i liked better.

This book by Picoult is a twist on the Salem Witch trials. It involves four young teenage girls who are involved with wicca, and are just learning to navigate in the world of adults; and when they don't get what they want from the new stranger in town they aim to show him what 'witches' in todays age can be capable of doing to someone. Jack has been accused of one false crime and after moving to Salem Falls, falling for the local waitress, and starting the threads of a new life he finds himself involved in a new scandal that might send him to jail for the rest of his natural life if he cannot convince the local populace or perhaps a jury to believe in his innocence.

Salem Falls explores the darker side of sexuality and lies that happen everyday in the lives of teenagers, adults and people around the world; have you ever wished someone ill and then heard they were in a car wreck and wondered just for a moment if your thought could have had some link to it? This book explores the possibilites of magic and how they are still active even in today's society. Salem Falls, opens your mind to looking closer and listening more to the people around you. People and events may not always be what they seem. The book was a pretty quick read; the characters were flatter for me than other Picoult novels but the storyline kept me reading. It was the plot of the book that I enjoyed more than anything. I would recommend it but I have other books by this author I've enjoyed more.

Picoult updates "The Crucible" with this tale of a man wrongly accused of a sex crime and the responses from the small community to which he has moved. Picoult creates lots of characters to move around on this stage and again includes an ending twist (but probably not the one you thought was coming).

This is a pedestrian plot with unremarkable characters and a predictable outcome. I didn't particularly like or dislike any of the characters and I found the plot lacked believable substance. I should have foreseen it when a recently-released prisoner was picked up by a cab driver and taken to an idyllic location where he immediately melded into the landscape. This book is nothing special from a special author.

Salem Falls most closely resembles a modern day witchhunt. Jack is released from prison after serving time for a crime he didn't commit. The false accusation and conviction destroyed his life and teaching career. Trying to start over, Jack moves to Salem Falls.

This _Crucible_ knock-off is probably my least favorite of her books. Probably because it is the most unbelievable. I mean how could someone be convicted once for a crime he did not commit and then nearly be convicted of the same crime again? It's just ridiculous.

I guess it's nice that Jordan McAfee is back in it - that's one of the redeeming facets. It also follows her same courtroom formula.
