Absolutely love Jodi. Can not put her books down once I start. This particular one contains some adult scenes; teenage drugs and sex; be advised. Otherwise, great story - as always.

I enjoyed the first 3/4 of this book. I sympathized with the main character even though I had a hard time resolving the 14 year old character the author created with the 14 year old girls I actually know. I also really enjoyed the convention of incorporating graphic novel components into a traditional novel. However, I felt the last 1/4 of the book was forced and rambled a bit in order to force a conflict resolution that fit with the tenth circle of hell concept of the book. Plus the author gave us enough clues to know who-dunnit 100 pages before the book ended with no ending plot twists to prove us wrong.

After hearing a lot about Jodi Picoult, I decided to give one of her books a try. "The Tenth Circle" was the first one that I had the opportunity to read, and I have to say that I was slightly disappointed, after all the good things I had heard about her. I thought the book started out excellent - characters and themes that the average person could relate to. However, there were parts of the story that I found just too hard to believe and too unrealistic for me to relate to. I understand that this is a work of fiction, but the second half of the story just seemed so out of place and like a completely different story than the first half of the book. I thought the transition between the two was very awkward. Overall, I still thought the book was a decent read, and I will give some other Jodi Picoult books a try in the future.

Certainly not my favorite Picoult book. I found the graphic novel dark and hard to read and the ending very easy to see coming. Regardless, the characters were very likable and I had a hard time stopping once I started reading.

Another good book by Jodi Picoult. Certainly a mix of mystique and proven test of loyalty and love. The only thing in the book disappointing to me was the mixture of comics. I'm not sure if it was done to entice the male reader, but I found it disruptive.
