Editorial Reviews

Review

“Picoult at her fearless best . . . Timely, balanced and certain to inspire debate.”The Washington Post

“This is Jodi Picoult at her best: tackling an emotional hot-button issue and putting a human face on it.”
People

“Told backward and hour by hour, Jodi Picoult’s compelling narrative deftly explores controversial social issues.”
Us Weekly

“Thoroughly realistic storytelling . . . Picoult has achieved what politicians across the spectrum have not been able to: humanized a hot-button issue. Excellent for book clubs, this should also be considered for discussions in critical thinking and political debate.”
Library Journal (starred review)

“The author presents the white-knuckled narrative in a reverse-chronological order. The effect is mesmerizing, as Picoult establishes moments in the overarching event, before revealing how they came to be.”
Houston Chronicle

“Picoult delivers another riveting yarn . . . in this carefully crafted, utterly gripping tale.”
Booklist (starred review)

“An important and thoughtful read that is perfect for book clubs looking for deep conversations.”
PopSugar
 
“Novels such as this . . . are necessary”
Kirkus Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars A timeless novel with a highly controversial topic
By ABookwormWithWine on August 6, 2020
I have not read many books by Jodi Picoult, but what I have read I have loved, and this stayed true with A Spark of Light. I originally bought the hardcover because I couldn't get over how beautiful it is, but of course this is much more than just a pretty cover. Abortion will always be a very controversial topic, but Picoult tackles it head on in this novel. I listened to the audio while following along in my book, and the narrator, Bahni Turpin, did such a fantastic job of reading it. Jodi Picoult also pops on at the end to read her author's note and I really appreciated that so I would definitely check out the audiobook if you like them!

I love the way Picoult writes her books, and there are a few surprises near the end that I wasn't expecting. Plus, I just thought the format of A Spark of Light was incredibly unique and interesting. I love that she chose to go backwards in time leaving the epilogue for the very last hour after everything has happened. It was incredibly thought-provoking, and I think Picoult does an excellent job of showing the different stances on abortion. This would make for an amazing book club selection because it definitely gives you a lot to think about.

I fell in love with so many of the characters in A Spark of Light, and even though there are plenty of viewpoints, they never got overwhelming or confusing for me. Which is saying something when you are doing an audiobook! Every character Picoult wrote was multifaceted and had so much depth even if they only get a part of the attention. I loved the way everything tied together as well, and I even got chills a couple of times.

A Spark of Light isn't going to be for everyone, but it felt like an important read for me and I'm so glad I decided to experience it through the audio. I can tell Picoult put a lot of time and effort into this book and it frankly just shows through all the different viewpoints. No matter what your stance on abortion is, I would definitely recommend checking this out if you are a fan of the author.
