The Tenth Circle

One of my friends recommended this book for me and I’ve read it several months ago. I’m not a huge fan of Jodi Picoult, but I like some of her books and this book is one of those. I love the way she narrates the story through many of the characters. It gives the reader such insight into each of their true thoughts and feelings.

The actions of the characters are so vivid and no one in the story is easily characterized as “good” or “bad”. It compels us to question each character’s actions, motivations, and how we would react in the same situation.

The most innovation and fascinating part of the novel is integration between graphic novel and text novel. Within the sections of the graphic novel are hidden letters, which put together make up a quote, and it encapsulates the theme of the book. It took me a while to put together those letters, because you have to hunt some letters hard.

Overall, I think this novel is a good read and well-written. I enjoyed this book and plan on reading more books from Jodi Picoult in the future. She is a well detailed and imaginative writer.

My Rating : 3.5 out of 5
