Description

His childhood was constantly colored by the routines and the contingencies and the chaos of his brother's condition. Anything new has to be introduced early on, and prepared for – whether that’s a dentist appointment or a vacation or a new student joining his math class midyear. Picoult introduces some of the current 'Big Debate' questions such as immunisation and bio-medical treatments.

To go into any more detail would give away the plot, all I can say is that the writing is engaging and totally believable. It was that when I saw Jacob in the kitchen with his corn-syrup blood and his fake head injury and all the evidence pointing to me, for a half a second, I thought: I wish. It operates by receiving frequencies that regular radios cannot – ones assigned by the Federal Government in the VHF and UHF range above the FM stations that are used by police, fire, and rescue crews. They process it for prints, using a small particle reagent followed by ninhydrin, when in reality, you’re supposed to use ninhydrin first. Picoult did RIGHT, because this is a worthy book on a timely subject, and I really liked the characters.I hear the hum of a car on the quiet street, and when I peek out the window I see it: the green van turning into the driveway.

Well, that was my first mistake – Chad and Andrew were so psyched at the thought of hanging out with an upperclassman that they started asking Jacob questions, like what grade he was in and if he was on a sports team. He holds up the telephone receiver he’s been hunched over, so that I can see the smudge of black on the side. I wonder where he’s been, and if Mom knows, and then the thought is gone, replaced by the vision of the dead man’s bare skin, blue underneath the floodlights, and the pink, stained snow all around him. Sometimes we choose thriller to live thrilling, energetic, life that sense of youthful exuberance, most of the time we fall for it. Jacob often comes across as self-absorbed as his thinking is so lateral - he can't lie, he doesnt understand people and his total self-obsorption and flatness is masterfully portrayed.Five novels have been made into movies and BETWEEN THE LINES (co-written with daughter Samantha van Leer) has been adapted as a musical. Once you know that he knows you were there, why wouldn't you ask him what else he knows and what he saw?
