I like Picoult's style too, I've yet to read all of her books though.

Don't worry, you're not alone.  I'm reading even while waiting for the previous class to end so I can go in the lecture hall. LOL

i like all books that have a good story line and is not boring LOL
& Picoult's books are definitely not boring :)

It was about a mother who finds out her 5 year old son was sexually abused by a priest...& what happens in the whole journey ...dont want to give it all away LOL

^^^ Oh I see, abuse seems to be an issue in a lot of her books.

"Change of Heart" was along the similar theme although much more complicated.

It was okayish... I mean I liked the way she worked with the theme at hand, but at first she takes it into too much religion and then at the end you read it and are like what?

It's interesting if you've nothing else to read, but definitely not a masterpiece.

Me too, I feel restless too if I don't finish the book..

Oh yeah I liked The Da Vinci Code.  It is Brown's masterpiece.

Religion is the similarity but Brown deals with it in a lot more interesting way than Picoult did.

But of course the two books are of totally different genre so it would be unfair to compare them.

I've read my Sister's Keeper and loved it!
The best thing was the way she portrayed the relationships between all the characters
Was really realistic and made me cry a lot
Haven't seen the movie yet but definitely want to
I also read Change of Heart
I enjoyed it but I was a little disappointed
I thought bcos of the subject/concept it would be really interesting but I didnt enjoy it as much as The Pact, Salem Falls or My Sister's Keeper
