I know, I know. I know I said I was done with Jodi Picoult. But I was at my aunt and uncle’s last night, and I had The Charioteer but I am in London, I don’t have loads of books with me, and I didn’t want to use up The Charioteer because I love it so much. So I read The Tenth Circle, which my aunt and uncle had on their bookshelf. The issue: date rape. The court scenes: none – shocking, I know. However, there is a murder.
As Jodi Picoult’s books go, this is not one of her better ones. I thought it was silly. Must everyone in her books behave in this fashion all the time? I’m sorry, but you can’t just go around killing people. You just can’t. It is inappropriate behavior.
