Book Review: Change of Heart

It's very likely that I just read my last Jodi Picoult book. Change of Heart felt like anti-Christian, many-paths-to-God, embrace-world-religions propaganda. Don't get me wrong: I don't expect non-Christians to write as a Christian would or even to uphold Christian values, but I am offended when they add their written voice to the wave of assaults on our values. If Christians were a violent group of people, as the European Muslims tend to be, books like this would incite riots. Jesus is not going to come back in the body of a convicted murderer, no matter what good that convict may try to do.

The writing was good; she definitely has talent. But I can read writers with equal talent that don't make me want to lose my lunch.

  1. After reading my Sister's Keeper (my 3rd JP book)I vowed to never read another book by her because I wanted to crawl under a rock it was so depressing. She sure has talent for the melodramatic and heart wrenching stories that make you want to tear your heart out
