This book gave me a good sampling of her many books. I went on to purchase several more of her books that I had not previously read. My spouse bought me this book for my new Nook. This gave me a chance to try out my new Nook and read many of JOdi's books. I had only read one before. I was caught by many and needed to go on and buy several to see how they ended! I recommend this!

I love her writing and the excerpt of Nineteen Minutes held my attention and then abruptly ended after several hundred pages!! The other excerpts are short samples of the book. Not sure what the advantage of having these would be. I got the book because it was free, so no complaints there!

I love her books when I finally decide to read them from my book shelf in my bedroom attic that I have for several years now.

Personally, I recommend anything that Jodi Picoult writes. I’ve read almost everything that she’s published. I still have four books left to read, but I just bought them and I’m reading them now. Next, I plan to start reading the books that she’s co-authored with her daughter Samantha van Leer. “The Jodi Picoult Reader's Companion: A Collection of Excerpts” is exactly what the title says. This book gives you a sampling of many of Jodi Picoult’s writings. If you’ve never read her work this will certainly arouse your curiosity and make you want more. If you’ve read some of her work, you’ll recall fond memories of what you’ve already read and get a look at her other works to help you choose which story you want to read next. If, like me, you’re a fan of all her work, this book is a pleasant trip down memory lane that will take you back to the stories that you loved so much.

Excerpts of 15 books by this author on various subjects of the human condition. The excerpt of Nineteen Minutes is 300 pages and provides a look at the bullying of a child from 1st grade to high school, and the ineptness and ignorance parents and surrounding adults exhibit to deal with the situation(s), and the final conclusion that is a 101 on How to End the Pain and Get Revenge by Massacre. The excerpts are well written and deal with the dark side of situations.
