Reviews

Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it.
<i>Daily Mail</i>
Picoult has been incredibly successful in dissecting the pain that family members go through when faced with sensitive and emotive issues
<i>Daily Express</i>
Picoult, once again, grabs a razor-sharp issue and uses her brilliantly intricate pen to expose all the shades of grey with PERFECTION.
<i>Cosmopolitan</i>
Superb, many-stranded and grimly topical . . . Picoult binds together precarious alliances with sensitivity, giving depth to characters without losing pace. Inhabited by contradictory, flawed individuals, this intelligent novel draws suspense, moral complexity and a stunning final twist out of what initially seemed a monochrome situation
The Times
A horrifying, close to real-life read, this novel is incredibly thought-provoking
Sun
A gripping and chilling read, NINETEEN MINUTES is reminiscent of Arthur Miller's play The Crucible in the way it captures the claustrophobic atmosphere of small town America, where members of a community struggle to cope with their grief and shortcoming in a world they hardly recognize anymore
Daily Express
Slick, emotive and as readable as ever
