Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult shares a powerful novel about the unbreakable bond between parent and child, the temptation to play God, and the dangerous repercussions.

Fourteen-year-old Trixie Stone is in love for the first time. She's also the light of her father Daniel's life - a straight-A student; a pretty, popular freshman in high school; a girl who's always seen her father as a hero. That is until her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence. Suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family - and herself - seems to be a lie. Could the boyfriend who once made Trixie wild with happiness have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a seemingly mild-mannered comic book artist with a secret tumultuous past he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back to protect his daughter.

With The Tenth Circle, Jodi Picoult offers her most powerful chronicle yet as she explores the unbreakable bond between parent and child and questions whether you can reinvent yourself in the course of a lifetime - or if your mistakes are carried forever.

disappointed

I have read many of this authors books but I really didn't enjoy this one, I felt like the ending was left in mid air and tge characters never really developed.

Worth the read!

I Love Jodi Picoult the most because of her unpredictability! This story was not one of my favorites, but did not disappoint in the predictability area! The narrator was annoying to listen to, especially when she changed her voice to the men in the story. Overall, worth reading or listening to!

Definitely not one of her best

I LOVE Jodi Picoult books and have gone through almost all of them. This was probably by far the most disappointing. I completed the whole book, out of devotion to the author, and also with the hopes that it might get better...but it didn't. The story wasn't as captivating as her stories usually are. The setting was dreary and without the usual jaw-dropping twists and turns her books normally have, ended up just making the whole plot depressing and boring. The twists that were present were not too surprising. I did enjoy the dynamic between father and daughter throughout the whole story. That and the amazing performance by the narrator were probably the only redeeming aspects of this book.

Her worst book

Well that was hours of wasted time. I used to love her novels, but this one really was not good. The ending was so predictable. And all it left me was hoping I never have to go to Alaska

People are never who you think.

Trixie was an egocentric brat with parents who adored her. It was weird that Trixie's mother took the blame for everything, whether true or not leaves the reader wondering...but I did not like that ending. This was not one of the best Jodi Picoult books I have listened to; but I did like all the Eskimo folklore culture that was shared. She made it sound so believable.
