Summary

Exploring the complexities of race relations in modern times, Jodi Picoult challenges us with ideas about justice, empathy and free will. Written with a raw honesty, this audiobook delves into deeply emotional issues about birth and death with an emotional fix that will stay with you long after the last words are spoken.
The new audiobook from number one best-selling author Jodi Picoult, with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.
When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father. What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.
Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us. It is about opening your eyes.

Thought provoking and engaging.

Would you listen to Small Great Things again? Why?

I really enjoyed this book and have already recommended it to friends and family. It covers some difficult topics and raises important questions about discrimination.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It was great to hear from each character in turn so you get a thorough insight into their point of view, whether you agree or not. Each character goes on a journey and has changed significantly by the end of the book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book makes you re-evaluate your own perspective on racial prejudice. It is brilliantly written and wonderfully told. It makes you feel uncomfortable at times and certainly made me think about my own behaviour.

Any additional comments?

The best Jodie Picoult book I've read to date.

First but not last

My first Jodi Picoult & I want more absolutely loved this book. The story was so gripping I usually reserve listening for bedtime but this one had me listening while ironing or on the bath couldn't stop but didnt want it to end. Courtroom chapters were really intense. The narrators were perfectly suited to their characters and the subject matter was thought provoking brilliant
