The Tenth Circle product reviews

Comic book artist Daniel Stone never for a moment suspected that the same boy whom his fourteen-year-old daughter, Trixie, loved might inflict upon her the worst possible harm. Could the young man, who once made Trixie's face fill with light when he came to the door, have drugged then raped her? She says that he did, and that is all it takes to make Daniel, a man with a past he has hidden even from his family, venture to hell and back in order to protect his daughter.

With a story that transports readers from small-town New England to the wilds of Alaskan bush, and interspersed with the striking pen-and-ink pages of Daniel's graphic novel, Jodi Picoult probes the unbreakable bond between parent and child - and the dangerous repercussions of trying to play the hero.

This is a fabulous Author, who isn't afraid to delve into deep situations and literally take a photographic diary image and retell it to the reader. Jodi (author), gripped me from the start of this book, by stating, this is how you feel when you realise your child is missing... so naturally i'm hooked, i want to know more. I have girls of my own. I dont want to go through this.

I really was touched by the parallels in this novel, with the Dad's story and Trixie's nightmare. Daniel's( the dad's) graphic novels that intercept parts of this novel, are glorious pages of sweet action packed content! It was my real first introduction to my love of graphic novels, that aren't just Superman, and this book's graphic novella tells a deep important message with ultimate graphics that kept me reading faster.

Its an epic tell of a dad's love for his daughter and of going through any means necessary to help her ... what ever the cost.
Ends with some more of the graphic novella, to really picture what the author is portraying. I would have to say this is my second favourite Jodi Picolt book. I will highly recommend anyone to go out and find a copy of this book immediately too.

When I first picked this book off the pile of books waiting to be read and reviewed, I really wasn't in the mood for it. Having just read a pile of fantasy books, I very much wanted to dive back into another fantasy one... but decided I should really get through some of the others in the pile as well. Besides, Jodi Picoult is an author I have been itching to chedck out for some time, as the blurb on the backs of her books always sound good. So, rather reluctantly, I picked up The Tenth Circle and started reading.
Within the first chapter, I was well and truely hooked. Intense without being in-your-face, the story of how young Trixie, drugged and rapped by the ex-boyfriend she absolutely adored, learns to cope with her world being turned upside down, is absolutely riveting, with a hard hitting sense of realism to it.
The sections of comic book from Trixie's father, Daniel Stone's comic with the same title as the book, added even further interest as it showed Daniel's inner struggle to protect the daughter he loved in a rather unique way.
"The Tenth Circle" is a book that will lead you through a family's journey as they deal with an all too common tragedy, and will have you wondering just who exactly is the guilty party. Picoult has instantly leapt into my selection of favourite Authors, and I will definitely be collecting more of her work.
