Об этой аудиокниге

Leaving Home brings together three previously published short pieces, each dealing with a variation on the theme of leaving home. The first, "Weights and Measures," deals with the tragic loss of a child; the second is a nonfiction letter Picoult wrote to her eldest son as he left for college; and "Ritz" tells the story of a mother who takes the vacation all mothers need sometime.

"It is impossible not to be held spellbound by the way she forces us to think, hard, about right and wrong." -The Washington Post

    This was one of Kindle's Short Pieces by Jodi Picoult, who is one of my favorite authors. I have to say that I enjoyed the pieces, but it wasn't one of my favorites by her. Jodi's work always amazes me because of the intense research that she does in order to add depth to the storylines. With the short pieces, it never seemed to get enough into that depth and I found myself wanting more.

    Of the three pieces, the second one seemed the most heartfelt, as it was a letter to her 18 year old as he left home. As a mom of two children (22 and 21 as I type this), I was moved by her lessons and words of wisdom to her son. This was the shortest piece of the three, but definitely my favorite.

    It was a nice break from longer pieces, but I wouldn't necessarily rush out to recommend it to anyone.
