Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 2/15/2014

    " The first novel I've read by her & I was completely engulfed by it from start to finish! Couldn't put it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 2/10/2014

    " I wanted to read a Jodi Picoult book, because of all of the hype about My Sister's Keeper. Since I am not generally a fan of sad books though, I thought that I would try her book, Second Glance, instead. This book was a ghost, mystery, love story. It was very multi-layered and to be honest, I probably need to read it again to catch everything I missed, but it did keep my attention. During the book, it dealt with some heavy issues, such as depression,suicide and death, but overall it was a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 + Dragonfly+ | 2/8/2014

    " One of the best books I have read by this author. As usual some parts where weird but still loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 2/1/2014

    " What an eyeopener into American white supremacy in the 1920s and 30s. I find some of her books irritating but this one held my interest right to the end. In saying that, it hadn't grabbed me by the first 50 pages, and I nearly put it down, but decided to give it a few more pages. I'm glad I did. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Broken Zebra | 1/23/2014

    " I am now hooked on this author and must consume Picoult's other novels. This was such an engaging, fast-paced, well developed, and fun story. The various points of views made it refreshing and it was a interesting to learn about ghosts, Native American traits, and eugenics. Even her sex scenes were done tastefully, and felt realistic versus just being there for the sake of it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 1/21/2014

    " This is the second Picoult book I have put down. (haha and it's called second glance...nevermind). There were too many characters to follow. I had to keep looking back at previous chapters to see who was who. If you could sit all day and just read it straight through it would be easy haha Bummer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanne Gordey | 1/18/2014

    " This is the kind of book that I could easily put down - when I had more than 15 minutes to read, i did enjoy it, but it was a struggle when i didn't have much time to devote to it. Great book if you're stuck in an airport, or on a plane... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Tudor | 1/15/2014

    " This is my favorite Jodi Picoult so far. I loved it until the very last minute when it just went a smidge too far, even for a ghost story. But I really loved the rest of the story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sasha | 1/14/2014

    " Not too bad. After reading nearly all her books, there's definitely a formula but I still enjoyed this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patti | 1/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was off the wall, but that's what I like. It is a ghost story, but not scary, with a past history that is compelling. It is also a mystery. The characters are believable, warm and real. One can feel a deep empathy with them. Great book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/25/2013

    " My least favorite of her books. I didn't even finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 12/24/2013

    " Second Glance took me longer to get into than most Jodi Picoult books do, but I think it had a better ending than the others that I have read. Worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 12/10/2013

    " It reminds me of an Alice Hoffman novel, kind of mystical maybe. "

    " This was a great book. I have read several of her books, but this one was different. It had a lot of twist and turns. It took a long time for the book to end, but everything was resolved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindasueanne | 4/3/2013

    " Wow!! Best book I have ever read. Amazing!! The beginning is a bit difficult because there are so many characters happening, but after a bit it all comes together and it's well worth it. How she could weave this story, just amazes me! "

    " Not usually one for 'ghost' books, but neither is my dad who recommended this one to me. sometimes i thought that part was a but much, but i liked the characters and the 'twist ending' - although i had figured out many of the surprise connections earlier on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DuctTapeDiva | 5/2/2011

    " I rather liked this book, it was hard to but down once I got started reading it. Interesting storyline that really pulls you in and makes you wonder. The characters seem so real that you do care about what becomes of them forgetting that they are a work of fiction. "
