A Spark of Light review Ð 103 download ß eBook or Kindle ePUB Ä Jodi Picoult read & download A Spark of Light In a daring and enthralling narrative structure that counts backward through the hours of the standoff this is a story that traces its way back to what brought each of these very different individuals to the same place on this fateful dayJodi Picoult one of the most fearless writers of our time tackles a complicated issue in this gripping and nuanced novel How do we balance the rights of pregnant women with the rights of the unborn they carry What does it mean to be a good parent A Spark of Light will inspire debate conversation and hopefully understandin. 35 rounded upJodie Picoult is a prolific writer and if you ve read any of her books you know she confronts head on some tough controversial and always relevant issues This one couldn t be timely with this predominantly conservative Supreme Court we will than likely have who could possibly reverse Roe v Wade We see mass shootings and hostage situations too freuently on the news This book takes us inside a hostage situation where people are shot inside an women s clinic that provides abortion services Picoult has done a terrific job of reflecting both pro choice and pro life points of view Most people who read this book will probably have their own opinion on the issue and what happens here most likely isn t going to change that At the very least by giving us characters with different perspectives those who want their babies those who don t or those who do but just can t because of circumstances she gives us a chance to see things differently from where we may standI m not going to focus at all on the plot but rather on the number of things that I liked about this story I liked how the hostages some of whom didn t know each other connected I liked how Picoult moves rapidly from character to character and gives us each of their stories In this cast of characters my favorite was Louie the abortion doctor who was pro life but wanted those who wanted an abortion to have it safely He remembers his mother It made me think about how easily we judge people without knowing what they have experienced It made me think about the victims of these types of crimes and of how little we know them except for a few things they tell us in the news What didn t uite work for me was the structure of the book which reads backwards in time and I m not really sure why It didn t add anything to the story for me It felt repetitive at times There were a couple of relationship twists which I guessed but ultimately did made sense for the story and were realistic Picoult could have been preachy but she wasn t She has written a thought provoking story one that encourages dialogue In the end what I liked about the book outweighed what I didn t like so I will round up it to 4 stars I received an advanced copy of this book from Random House Publishing Group Ballantine through NetGalley
