You Have No Idea How Much I Love Her Writing... @jodipicoult


If you have been with me from the beginning, you may remember when I first blogged about Jodi Picoult.  
I was in love with her writing style the moment I started reading the pages of Change Of Heart.  That was years ago... Not sure exactly when... But anyways, I knew she would be an author that I would follow.  


I have read all but 2 of her books... Why have I not read them?  Honestly, I just have not had the extra money to go out and grab them yet... But, I will buy them soon.  One day... Honestly, I really will!  If you don't believe me, let me tell you why I will... Because I own ALL of her books!

 On to the latest book.  I heard that Jodi Picoult had a new book coming out... Lone Wolf.  I was, of course, hopeful to get the opportunity to read it...  Then, one day... A package came in the mail.  I opened it up and was in heaven!  " The latest Jodi Picoult book is here!"  I screamed out to Marc!  Yeah, I am also the crappy friend that immediately had to text a picture of it in my lap to a dear friend of mine that is also a JP fan.  Not to mention, I do believe I sent out a tweet about it...

JP is like a drug to me, I really can not quit her!  
I started reading it right away!  Let me admit something... When I read her books, it is hard to stop.. as I am sucked in more and more page by page... It really is a deep love that I have with her writing style!  I remember when I was pregnant with Broxton, I was reading all of her books, as she was a pretty recent discovery for us... Once we finished Change of Heart, we went out and had to read all of her books up until then!  I took her books everywhere... since I was pregnant, I was at the doctor often and each visit, he would ask what book I was reading... He would then look and see it was yet another JP book.. Come to find out, his wife was a fan...  Small world!  

Now, why do I love her writing style so much?

Because it is different to me.

You see, each "chapter" is one of the characters point of view.  
Each "chapter" has the characters name at the top and then whenever it is their view point, they have their own font style.  One might think that with it having each characters point of view that it would jump a bit, but the way she does it is flawless...

Jodi tells the story in the way that it flows from one to the next.... 

Also, the MAIN reason I love her writing...
She doesn't just write a book.. She makes you think... 

The book you read isn't just some story, it provides thought provoking questions...
(Not to mention, she even posts Book Club Questions on her site to help you with discussions! )  


 

Synopsis:

Edward Warren, 23, has been living in Thailand for five years, a prodigal son who left his family after an irreparable fight with his father, Luke. But he gets a frantic phone call: His dad lies comatose in a NH hospital, gravely injured in the same accident that has also injured his younger sister Cara.
Cara, 17, still holds a grudge against her brother, since his departure led to her parents’ divorce. In the aftermath, she’s lived with her father – an animal conservationist who became famous after living with a wild wolf pack in the Canadian wild. It is impossible for her to reconcile the still, broken man in the hospital bed with her vibrant, dynamic father.
With Luke’s chances for recovery dwindling, Cara wants to wait for a miracle. But Edward wants to terminate life support and donate his father’s organs. Is he motivated by altruism, or revenge? And to what lengths will his sister go to stop him from making an irrevocable decision?
LONE WOLF looks at the intersection between medical science and moral choices. If we can keep people who have no hope for recovery alive artificially, should they also be allowed to die artificially? Does the potential to save someone else’s life with a donated organ balance the act of hastening another’s death? And finally, when a father’s life hangs in the balance, which sibling should get to decide his fate?
Quite honestly, I was not sure how much I would be into the whole "wolf" aspect of it all, but NOT surprisingly... Jodi Picoult sucked me in and made me hold on... Each page sliding into my heart... 
This is more than a book about a "lone wolf" but is so much more about a family!!!!! I will tell you, I did find learning about the wolves to be very fascinating... I was thinking it would not be intriguing to me, but in fact, it really was!  

Lone Wolf is available on February 28th.  You can pre-order now!  
Of course, follow Jodi on Facebook and Twitter...
(I do, that is how I was into countdown mode for her latest book!)
