Details: Product Description
When Daniel Stone was a child, he was the only white boy in a native Eskimo village where his mother taught, and he was teased mercilessly because he was different. He fought back, the baddest of the bad kids: stealing, drinking, robbing and cheating his way out of the Alaskan bush – where he honed his artistic talent, fell in love with a girl and got her pregnant. To become part of a family, he reinvented himself – jettisoning all that anger to become a docile, devoted husband and father. Fifteen years later, when we meet Daniel again, he is a comic book artist. His wife teaches Dante’s Inferno at a local college; his daughter, Trixie, is the light of his life – and a girl who only knows her father as the even-tempered, mild-mannered man he has been her whole life. Until, that is, she is date raped… and Daniel finds himself struggling, again, with a powerlessness and a rage that may not just swallow him whole, but destroy his family and his future.
Review
‘Jodi Picoult is not one to shy away from fictional controversy; in fact, the more tangled and messy a moral dilemma appears, the better she likes it. (
Daily Mail)

‘This story of a flawed family on the brink of destruction grips from start to finish’ (
Publishers Weekly)

‘Picoult is an amazing storyteller and as she weaves you deeper into the lives of her flawed families you’ll be gripped by their traumas. A further level of narrative is added by Daniel’s illustrations, which punctuate the chapters. A sad and complex, but ultimately enthralling read.’ ***** (
Heat)

Picoult offers a perfectly pitched take on the great mysteries of the heart (
Kirkus Reviews)

‘Picoult has been incredibly successful in dissecting the pain that family members go through when faced with sensitive and emotive issues . . . Any mother who has turned a blind eye to a too-short skirt or has backed down over unsuitable friends will find The Tenth Circle to be an honest reflection of the more difficult side of family life . . . a touching read and it easily merits a place in the bestseller lists.’ (
Daily Express)

Daily Express)’This wonderful, sensitive yet exciting tale can only augment Jodi Picoult’s already impressive reputation as an author.’ (Reviewing the Evidence (website))’The themes are weighty: adultery, rape, violence and death. But Picoult deftly manoeuvres her way through the characters, taking pains to delve into the psyches of each one. . . Picoult’s appreciation of teenage angst is exquisitely unwrapped . . . This book is a well-written, mature and entertaining study of sex, lies and love on family relationships. The Tenth Circle is Picoult’s 12th novel, and on this form she’s going to leave her readers impatient for more.’ (Scotsman)’An intriguing read’ (Closer)’This portrait of a family on the brink of survival, and the moral questions posed by the journey they undertake, is a fairly gripping read’ (Psychologies)
