Do not choose this audio book. If you want to listen to Jodi Picoult at her best, try "My Sisters Keeper" or "Nineteen Minutes". She can be stimulating, provocative and entertaining but she can also be smug, verbose and trite. She is at her worst with "Change of Heart". Before downloading, I read several customer reviews and I wish I had paid more attention to the negative ones but I looked at the overall rating, which was 4 and thought it would be a safe bet. Unfortunately, I did not read the critics' reviews until after I started listening to it. If I had, I would have known that the book was panned almost universally in the media. I agree wholeheartedly with the customer reviewer who pointed out that she lifted (plagiarized?) her plot from "The Green Mile" by Stephen King. I cannot believe she got away with it either! Maybe King realizes that "The Green Mile" is far superior to "Change of Heart" and since he and Picoult are buddies he let it slide.
