商品の説明

内容紹介

In her most gripping mystery since House Rules, Number One bestselling author Jodi Picoult brings us a powerful story of a young girl's determination to uncover the truth.

Jenna Metcalf was with her mother the night she disappeared, but she remembers nothing.

In the wake of those tragic events, she has lost not one parent, but two: her father is in an asylum, and now she lives with her grandmother - who finds it too painful to talk about what happened.

Ten years on, Jenna is the only one who still seems to care. And she is determined to seek the truth, no matter how shocking and life-changing it might be . . .

レビュー

「専用端末買わなくても、スマホにアプリ入れりゃ読めるじゃん」と息子に言われ、初kindleしました。
フォントが調整出来、薄暗い車内でも明るい画面で読めるのは50を過ぎたおじさんにとって初めて眼鏡をかけた時以来の衝撃でした。カサカサの指でページをめくるのに苦労していたのに比べれば、4.6インチのディスプレイなど全く気になりません。通勤時にはペーパーバックだけ持ってましたので、これで完全に手ぶらです。宅配便の受け取りを嫌がっていた嫁も文句なし。素晴らしい、素晴らし過ぎます!

肝心の作品の方ですが、"Lone Wolf"と同様に動物モノで、今回はゾウさんですが、お話を進めていく上でどれほどの必然性があるのか疑問です。
また、Keeping Faith⇒Second Glance⇒Change of Heartと続いてきた超常現象が重要な要素且つ最大の伏線になってます。

中学生になるジェマは祖母と二人暮らし。母はジェマが3歳の時に失踪し、その後すぐに父は精神疾患で病院に隔離されている。ジェマは母が死んだとは信じたくない。なぜ彼女を置いて母はいなくなったのか?死んでしまったのか?その謎を追う決意をした彼女はある人のもとへ相談に行くのだった。

ミステリーともとれるけど、これはジャンルを超えると思います。このゴシック感とズシッとした重さを持ちながらも鋭い刃を持つ感じ。でも感動をおぼえる話。こんなのなかなかないです。

主人公の一人が象の動物学者なので、象に関して詳しくなれるおまけ付きです。アフリカと北米が中心のお話。

このどんでん返しはいままでも使われているのを記憶していますが、それでもこれは群を抜く、抜群のどんでん返しでした。途中「あれ?」と何度も思いながら進むんですが、とにかくうまい。騙されて読み続けたほうが、面白みが数十倍違うこと請け合い。

タイトルもうまいです。読み終わったあとに、タイトルを読んでさらにうるっときました。そして心になんとも言えない余韻を残してくれる感動作品でした。

是非ピコー女史の手のひらの上で地団駄踏んで欲しいです。

5つ星のうち 5.0 "Leaving Time" Ripped My Freaking Heart Out 2014/9/22
投稿者 Stephanie Crawford - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazon Vine レビュー ( 詳しくはこちら )
No spoilers!

I just closed this book, and I was actually sobbing From the start, it's a slow burn-- each character gets their own chapter, part of it's in past tense to slowly fill in information-- and it doesn't take long to care deeply about each of them. I'd follow each of these characters off a cliff.

Emotion aside, this was a fabulous read. The entire plot is heavily centered on elephants-- how they grieve and how scientists try to reckon what can be observed logically and what can be discovered by observing emotion. It ties in so well to the human drama, that the elephants aren't a background, but they're just as vital in their personalities as the people are. Family dynamics and their impact are the heart of the book.

It's a very matter-of-fact book at the start, our hero is an intelligent, funny young teenager named Jenna, who is a great mix of curious and stubborn without being annoyingly precocious. The book slowly starts descending into metaphysics/psychics, and one of the main characters is a disgraced psychic, so we are given hints at it. Still, bringing that element into a book centered around an endangered species and a skeptical ex-cop and scientists could have REALLY failed, if not for Picoult's deft touch. It really felt like she lived with her cast as she created them, and sometimes I was gripping the book hard, worried about them. As much as I love reading, that doesn't happen often.

A mix of thriller, mystery, family drama, love story and more... if you're a Picoult fan, I can't imagine you'd be disappointed. If you're a new reader to her, this is a fantastic place to start. Excuse me, now I need to go fix my mascara.

5つ星のうち 5.0 SUPERB MYSTERY! 2014/9/24
投稿者 Haze Blackmon - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazon Vine レビュー ( 詳しくはこちら )
This is a very unique, unusual and entertaining mystery thriller. Really unlike anything I've read before. At the base of it is a teenage girl(Jenna) searching for her missing mother. Jenna must puzzle out why her mother, Alice, disappeared from the New England Elephant Sanctuary. What separates this mystery from others is that Picoult weaves the emotional lives of elephants with that of Jenna and Alice and other human characters. It's really haunting how she depicts grief and loss and can get to you emotionally at times. The character study of elephant behavior was done deftly was very interesting, especially how intertwined with the mystery.

Add to that a great cast of characters and an excellent conclusion. Jenna is one of the best characters I've read in years. She's funny, sassy, and independent, but yet vulnerable. After reading Leaving Time if you haven't been changed or emotionally touched then you may not be human. I'm a big macho weightlifter guy and it had me in tears at times. When a novel can affect me that much it indeed deserves high accolades. One of the best books I've read in ages! Admittedly, this book won't be for every one because it's an emotional roll-a-coaster of love and loss and it is different(much) from what most people have read. If you've read Picoult before or are fan I suspect you'll love Leaving Time. If you're new to her or you think this might not be for you, then I recommend you take the leap. You may find a gem!

5つ星のうち 5.0 Haunting 2014/10/26
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This is, at one and the same time, one of the oddest, most beautiful, and strangely real almost-fairy-tale stories I have ever read.

It has multiple POV, which seems to leave some readers behind - or so it seems from what I have read in other reviews. I have never had a problem with that so it is no surprise that I had no problem with it here. And, as it happens, it is the best way to tell this particular story.

The narrative is deceptively simple. We have teen girl Jenna, her mother Alice who disappeared ten years ago when Jenna was a toddler, the psychic named Serenity that Jenna consults who was once a celebrity psychic, and the police detective named Virgil who investigated a death that occurred the day Alice disappeared. Jenna, Serenity and Virgil have all lost something that meant a great deal to them and are still reeling with that loss and trying to deal with it. Then there is Alice's diary, strewn with endless fascinating details about the elephants she loved, studied and based her research on. Specifically, her research regarding the grieving of elephants, both in the wild and in captivity. What keeps us reading is not just the characters but our curiosity - what exactly happened the day Alice disappeared and why has Jenna had no contact with her for a decade? The more we learn, the worse it looks for poor Jenna - or does it?

This is one of those books that reels you in slowly, drawing you into the story and bringing you close to the characters. At the heart is the mystery - where is Jenna's mother? - but each person's story, just like Alice's research, is about grieving. For Jenna, Serenity and Virgil, it is grieving for what was lost.

The ending came at me out of nowhere, and I am glad. None of the endings that seemed likely as I was reading the book would have been anywhere near as right, or as satisfactory, as the ending Picoult wrote.

Ever finish a book and have tears in your eyes, not sure if they are due to sadness or happiness? That is how I felt when I finished this book. Trust me, that takes some doing - I do not snivel easily.

No matter what book I read next, it will suffer in comparison just by being the book I read after this one.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Affecting and surprising ending 2014/11/9
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
What I like about Jodi Picoult is her ability to write about ethical dilemmas and make the reader question his or her assumptions. Her stories and characters are seldom black and white, but rather an uncomfortable shade of gray. Picoult also doesn't take sides, she doesn't pepper one character with more or less negative traits than another; they are always nuanced, multidimensional.

In Lone Wolf, the only other novel by Jodi Picoult that I have read, the plot was a researcher with questionable parenting skills who falls into a coma and his kids must decide whether to terminate his life support. Also, in Lone Wolf the underlying theme was the analogy between a wolf pack and a human family. In Leaving Time, however, Picoult chooses to focus on elephants; how elephants express grief and how a herd of elephants is a cohesive unit in which every individual contributes to bringing up a calf. The analogies in Leaving Time are: 1) how elephants grieve compared to humans, 2) how elephant mothers compare to humans based on the bond they form with their calf due to their long pregnancy state, 3) the bond between mothers and babies in both species.

Although Leaving Time has a slow development, I was so invested in the story that I wanted to finish fast to know how it ended, and what an ending it is! It reminded me of at least two well known movies that I’d rather not mention for fear of spoiling it. Suffice is to say that I didn’t see that coming in a million years, a testament of powerful storytelling.

5つ星のうち 2.0 I have loved almost all of Jodi Picoult's novels 2014/10/29
投稿者 Lori S - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I have loved almost all of Jodi Picoult's novels, and consider myself a fan, In fact, I paid full-price for this on my Kindle, rather than order from the library and wait who knows how long to get it. She really lost me on this one. I don't want to give you spoilers and ruin your fun, but Amazon asked me to rate it, so I am. I haven't any other reviews on it, so maybe it's critically-acclaimed as one of her best, and I just didn't get it. It was a kind of "Oh for crying out loud" reaction at the end. I'm all for surprise endings, but this one wasn't one I'd recommend, although I did learn lots about elephants. :-)
