The Tenth Circle
The Tenth Circle: A Novel | Jodi Picoult
Jodi Picoult, the New York Times bestselling author of Vanishing Acts, offers her most powerful chronicle yet of an American family with a story that probes the unbreakable bond between parent and child -- and the dangerous repercussions of trying to play the hero. Trixie Stone is fourteen years old and in love for the first time. She's also the light of her father's life -- a straight-A student; a freshman in high school who is pretty and popular; a girl who's always looked up to Daniel Stone as a hero. Until, that is, her world is turned upside down with a single act of violence...and suddenly everything Trixie has believed about her family -- and herself -- seems to be a lie. For fifteen years, Daniel Stone has been an even-tempered, mild-mannered man: a stay-at-home dad to Trixie and a husband who has put his own career as a comic book artist behind that of his wife, Laura, who teaches Dante's Inferno at a local college. But years ago, he was completely different: growing up as the only white boy in an Eskimo village, he was teased mercilessly for the color of his skin. He learned to fight back: stealing, drinking, robbing, and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself, channeling his rage onto the page and burying his past completely...until now. Could the young boy who once made Trixie's face fill with light when he came to the door have been the one to end her childhood forever? She says that he is, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a man with a history he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back in order to protect his daughter. The Tenth Circle looks at that delicate moment when a child learns that her parents don't know all of the answers and when being a good parent means letting go of your child. It asks whether you can reinvent yourself in the course of a lifetime or if your mistakes are carried forever -- if life is, as in any good comic book, a struggle to control good and evil, or if good and evil control you.

This is why I love thick books: I‘ve recently started practicing contortion. I don‘t have the yoga blocks used to deepen stretches so I‘ve had to improvise.? Anyone else uses their books other than for reading?? J'ai récemment commencé à pratiquer la contorsion. Je n'ai pas les blocs de yoga utilisés pour approfondir les étirements, alors j'ai dû improviser avec de beaux gros livres.? Qui d'autre utilise ses livres autrement que pour lire ?

I read this for my January challenge.
It was interesting thriller. More like a family drama. I enjoy reading it. At the beginning I feel sorry for Trixie but then I changed my mind. Something bother me and I wasn‘t sure how to feel about it. I constantly asked myself if she is telling the truth or is she lying? This was a little confused.

I love Jodi Picoult and was not disappointed with this book. I really enjoyed the mixed media in this novel - including some clips of a story within a story in the format of a graphic novel. The story itself was very interesting and had a good twist - it brought up some very relevant issues about rape and teens and mental health. I did feel like there was a lot going on with the varying storylines. Glad I fit this in for #24b4monday

Andrew65 Sounds a good read. Well done 🙌 3y

This wasn‘t my absolute-favorite Jodi book, but I still enjoyed it a lot! You get into the worlds of comics as well as rural Alaskan living. It is about sexual assault, so I wouldn‘t recommend it if you‘re not up to reading about it. All in all, beautiful writing and great/complex characters.

While this was an enjoyable read in some aspects, the ending was very predictable. I did enjoy the juxtaposition of the comic book spreads as a representation of the story. I thought that was very clever.

Catching up with day #10 of #NovemberbytheNumbers: the only Jodi Picoult book I still have in my library because it‘s the only one that I don‘t find completely overwrought somehow; I‘ve given the others away. Also the #comics angle was a nice change from her usual style. (I know this is probably an #unpopularopinion given the amount of Litsy-love I‘ve seen Picoult get, but she‘s just not my cup of tea. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Einschränkend sollte ich vielleicht noch sagen, der Comic hat mich inhaltlich nicht überzeugt. Aber die Idee an sich fand ich originell. Und ich muss zugeben, ich war noch nie die große Comicleserin – auch als Kind nicht.

Aber an des Rätsels Lösung möchte ich mich auf alle Fälle noch versuchen. ? bei _der_ Idee ist nämlich auch mein Herz dahingeschmolzen. #WeilIchEinMaedchenBin

Ein typischer Jodi Picoult – im positiven Sinne.

Die Figuren bestechen einmal mehr durch vielschichtige Tiefe und realitätsnahe psychologische Darstellung. In Alaska konnte man zwar den Eindruck bekommen, das Buch hätte zwei Teile. Einmal die Straftat und einmal der Suizid/Unfall. Das hat mich jedoch nicht gestört, weil ich Trixie da schon sehr mochte und auch von (der Beschreibung) der mir unbekannten Kultur total fasziniert war. ?

blurb
Buechersuechtling

Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass ich, nachdem ich dieses Buch ausgelesen habe, Schnee ?❄️?❄️ mit völlig anderen Augen sehen werde.

Kälte ? nicht, Kälte ? war mir schon immer suspekt.

blurb
Buechersuechtling

Ich weiß, ich weiß, es ist ein Buch … Aber ich muss das dennoch loswerden:

Da begeht ein Teenager, ein mutmaßlicher Täter, wahrscheinlich Selbstmord und in seiner Highschool werden Veranstaltungen zu Depressionen abgehalten.

Als ebenjener Teenager eine Mitschülerin mutmaßlich vergewaltigte und ihr vorher Drogen eingeflößt hatte, werden keine Veranstaltungen (zum Thema "Nein heißt Nein") abgehalten.

In was für einer Welt leben wir eigentlich? ?

blurb
Buechersuechtling

Ein Buch ist gut, beziehungsweise "das richtige" für mich, wenn ich statt sechs Tage für etwas mehr als 380 Seiten weniger als 24 Stunden für deutlich mehr als die Hälfte von 415 Seiten brauche.*)

*) "Die Meerfrau" gegenüber "Schuldig".

blurb
Buechersuechtling

Eine Ehefrau, die nicht weiß, wie ihr Ehemann seinen Kaffee trinkt. ??‍♀️

Oh Leute, geht noch mal in den Beziehungskindergarten‼️?

Dass ich sowas überhaupt Partnerschaft oder Ehe nennen darf …

Ich komm da nicht drüber.

blurb
Buechersuechtling

Die Mutter will sich von ihrem Job beurlauben lassen, um für ihre Tochter da zu sein. Der Vater, der zu Hause gearbeitet und die Tochter die meiste Zeit betreut hat, findet, das sollte die Mutter lassen, weil es für die Tochter besser ist, wenn alles wieder seinen normalen Gang geht.

Wie wäre es, wenn die Eltern mal die Tochter selber danach fragen würden, was sie möchte. Just saying. ?

blurb
Buechersuechtling

Whoa, Trixie hat mit 14 ganz schön Chuzpe. Ich hätte in dem Alter weder den Mut noch das Selbstbewusstsein gehabt, zu dem Jungen, der mich für eine andere (barbiepuppenhafte Erscheinung) hat sitzen lassen, hinzugehen und nachzufragen, wie er den Alltag durchsteht und wie er es schafft, so zu tun, als ob die vergangene, beendete Beziehung nicht wichtig gewesen wäre.

Einerseits finde ich das wenig realistisch. Andererseits, solche Menschen gibt es.

Und es folgt tatsächlich einen fünfseitiger Comic. ?

Vielleicht ist das Buch auch wirklich ein Krimi. ?

Wenn man nach dem Prolog plötzlich versteht, warum das Buch im Original

"The Tenth Circle"

heißt. ?

"Heft in Buch" finde ich eine schöne Idee. Nicht gänzlich neu, aber neu für Jodi Picoult.

Oben seht ihr, was passiert, wenn frau in der Bücherei ein Buch nur deswegen ausleiht, weil sie dessen Autorin schätzt und sich den Blick auf den Klappentext gerade deswegen spart. Sie will sich einfach nur überraschen lassen.

Und dann fragt sie sich vor Lektürebeginn: "Seit wann schreibt Jodi Picoult _Krimis_⁉️?"

Nicht, dass ich's nicht mitgenommen hätte, hätte ich das zugewiesene Genre vorher gesehen, aber komisch ist es schon.

War gerade in der Bibliothek.

izah.ahmad @Martta Harry Potter is the benchmark of reading for most of us, I wasn't into reading much until I discovered HP. Well I was exposed to the movies first rather than the books. Did you see a movie trailer about Voldemort and the heir of Gryffindor yet? My inner child screams 😂 5y
Martta Same here. Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban was my first book that I ever read. I haven't seen the trailer. Would you mind finding me the link? I couldn't find out which one you mean because there seems to be a lot of new trailers about new Potter movies and most are fan made so I don't know which one you mean. 5y

izah.ahmad @Martta although this one am not sure whether they already made the movie or still looking funds to do so, the movie seems quite good. But then Rowling doesn't make any statements regarding to this, so probably this one is not coming from her own writing 5y

As I've come to expect from Picoult, The Tenth Circle tackles some serious family and personal trials--rape, guilt, adultery, murder. My favorite thing about this book: the comic panels woven into the story, a parallel story of sorts. Dialogue and scenarios were crafted with intention, creating an engrossing & (mostly) believable drama. A quick & good read...just not nearly as magnificent as some of her others. ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5
