19 minutes is the time it took to Peter Houghton to sow death and destruction in his school. 19 minutes, that’s what we remember from her life, as she is made up of millions more minutes may explain this a little crazy and desperate gesture …
I wondered initiating this book how one could write 600 pages on a topic sadly as ordinary a shooting at an American high school. Yet this is the challenge taken up without difficulty Jodi Picoult, “Nineteen Minutes” is a fluid novel that reads very easily. It has the merit to deploy all human and psychological components of the tragedy with great realism and some complexity as the reader comes out with very mixed feelings, no Manichaeism in the distinction victims / perpetrators.
A reserve, however, justifies that I put only 4 stars: a final twist that was not absolutely necessary and in my opinion sounds wrong in a hitherto very authentic story.
“Nineteen Minutes” inevitably recalls the excellent “We need to Log Talk About Kevin” (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) Lionel Shriver -still a cut above in my opinion. Made various elevated to the novel, it is not a grand literary but immerses us in an efficient and nuanced in the adolescent universe with its flaws and irregularities, and highlights the juveniles suffering and guilt Parental. An easy book to read despite its length and probably deeper than it has the bonus of air initially by reflections it arouses.
