    The author became so caught up in her mission to spread the word about the plight of elephants that she forgot about the plight of readers who expect a good story The end was full of cheap tricks to finish it off so she could tell you about elephants If that's what I wanted to read I'd have chosen the National Geographic Some of the writing is brilliant lyrical heart stopping That only makes it worse when you get to the end and fe

    I've averaged my rating all things elephant related are 5 stars with the people stuff being 3 stars Picoult uses her trademark multiple points of view to good effect in this novel which has heart than some of her recent novels If you're not enthralled with elephants the way I am you probably won't feel the emotional attachment to this novel that I did beginning with the Alice's first section written by the scientist doing field re

For than a decade Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her mother Alice who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident Refusing to believe she was abandoned Jenna searc This newest Jodi Picoult left me a little dazed and confused Picoult used to be one of my sure bets for a great read and no one uite wrote like her This being said I m not really sure what direction Picoult has been going recently Leaving Time was such a mixture of characters stories and subplots that for me just didn t flow Maybe if I was an elephant fanatic I would of found it interesting To me it was like putting a nonfiction learning experience into the middle of a novel Throw in a young girl looking for her mother who disappeared when she was a child a psychic who has fallen from stardom and an ex cop who prefers a drinknot to mention a murder elephant stampede and dad in the mental institution Put them all together with the excerpts on elephants weave a story and the blow it out of the water with an unexpected ending I almost put this one down halfway through but skimmed through it and I will say I did like the ending as strange as it wasI wish Jodi Picoult would just go back to dealing with people and human interest stories and just write a good page turner again

review Leaving Time

Hes for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals A scientist who studied grief among elephants Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she lov I rarely read books about psychics ghosts and the like But this was Jodi Picoult so I was always going to make an exception as she is a favourite author As soon as this book arrived I put aside all others waiting here to read this One of the reasons I find her books interesting is she usually makes me think about an issue and look at it from than one position Even when I do not agree with her stance on some subjects and I sometimes don t at least she makes me stop and think and consider whether there is another way of looking at things That said I m not sure that is the case with this novel Yet it still got me in and I raced through it at breakneck speed as I usually do one of her novels She has a knack of capturing my attention and keeping it so I have no choice but to keep reading When I had to put it down I wanted to get back to it As so often happens Jodi Picoult went with multiple narrators This is one of the features she does extremely well I liked the use of different narrators between Serenity the psychic Virgil the detective Alice the mother who disappeared when Jenna was a small child and Jenna I wouldn t say I am a particular fan of elephants but I liked the information fed in along the way about elephants and their habits There are several touching moments mostly to do with the elephants As usual it is obvious Jodi Picoult has done a lot of research and so the story has that ring of authenticity about it but I think her characters are strongly portrayed There is also a murder to be solved during the course of the story My one uibble is the ending For me the ending didn t uite work but that could be a personal view Will I read the next book by Jodi Picoult Without a doubt because she is always gets me in and I never fail to enjoy her books
