Preposterous melodrama

by nmua on Aug 2, 2008

Maybe it's the audio CD narrator alternating between sickly sweet mooniness, to out-of-place scorn, to stilted cardboard cut-out attempts at male voices, but I can't believe this is the effort of an award-winning writer. She apparently doesn't even know that "The reason is because" is improper English. The events in this story are so ridiculously improbable, she destroys her own credibility. The writing is at best, specious. At worst are lines like "throw away his freedom like an extra stick of gum", and sappy offerings such as "his name rolled around her mouth like a butterscotch candy" - I won't torture you by quoting descriptions of gratuitous teen (and adult) sex, or the occasional, oddly-placed crudeness. Hyperbole and melodrama reign supreme here.

Salem Falls is an awesome book! Jodi Picoult is a great story teller, and you get so engrossed with these characters in the story, that you can't put the book down until the very last page!
