My Sister's Keeper
What can I say about this book? Well I really enjoyed the story more so than Vanishing Acts also by Jodi Picoult It had a very compassionate side to it. But at the same time it made you think.What would you do if it was you that was having all these medical procedures done to you and no one asked? Is it fair even though you think you have the best interest of your youngster? They are human too.
All along I believed Sara did love Anna but in a different way. A way just to keep Kate alive. She never came right out and said such till the very end. She explains how she feels. Than finally I believe.
There are a few things that touched me. Like how Anna thought about heaven,if it changed a person etc. Also beautiful words that were said about grief. Like grief is like a Band-Aid being ripped away taking a top layer off a family. An excellent explanation I think.
[I say this not verbatim so has to not spoil the ending]
Also something was said when feeling sad over death, all you have to do is look around the person is everywhere
This novel was made into a movie. I just saw the movie, I understand they can't put all into it. But the biggest disappointed was the ending. The ending of the book was a twist, rain, accident, and different characters. The movie just made it so cliche, so predictable.
There is one thing that bothered me about this story. The ending was foreseen. It was kind of watching a movie and knowing where the story is going to go. And for that I give My Sister's Keeper
