My Sister's Keeper

I am probably behind the 8 ball but I picked this book for my book club and I just finished reading it - I could NOT put it down. I am now going to have to read some of her other books. She is also a curly and one of the characters in the book said 'my hair has it's own zip code'.

    I just bought this book at Walmart, and am currently finishing up one before I can start on it. I love Jodi Picoult. So far I've read
    -Nineteen Minutes
    -Salem Falls
    -Plain Truth

    I heard that they are thinking of making it into a movie, with Dakota Fanning and her little sister as Kate and Anna. I definitely think it would be one that could translate well into a movie.

    I think it would make a great movie too. I picked up and am reading the 10th Circle. I find it interesting that in the two books I have read so far she makes the wife not very likeable or hard to like - if that makes sense.

    What I love that she does, is makes all the characters very human. Some I can't decide if I like, or dislike, I'll like certain things about them, and hate others, but no one is completely good or innocent, and no one is completely guilty or bad. Nineteen Minutes made me cry. It got you to look at school shooters from a completely different perspective and actually feel some sympathy for them, and feel maybe some anger at the victims. Her characters are all very human, and that's what I like so much about her writing.

    I cried for days about Nineteen Minutes. I still tear up when I think about it. :(

    I cried too. I was teased a lot in school too, so it broke my heart to read the torture he went through. I felt so sorry for the character. I really get into books though, and care about the characters, imagine what they look like, etc.

    I too love Jodi Piccoult. Have read all of her books and must admit that the Pact and Keeping Faith were my favourites. I have Mercy right now and believe it or not am having a difficult time getting interested. I should close it and retry next week! Can't believe I don't love it:evil:

    add me to the list of Jodi fans too!

    I emailed her a long time ago to compliment her writing (of course) and her beautiful curls, and she wrote back. She's so cool!

    Who's read Change of Heart?

    I am reading that now.

    Anyone else hear that she is upset they may change the end of My Sister's Keeper for the movie? While I hated the ending (I wanted a happy ending-but I think the ending was what it needed to be) I think they should keep it that way for the movie.

    I LOVE Jodi Picolt books. The first one I read was My Sister's Keeper. It was one of the best books I've ever read. I couldn't put it down.

    I also love the way she writes from different character's perspective.

    Oh I just finished Picture Perfect. I really liked it. It wasn't as thought provoking as some of her others, but was one of my favorites.
  • KitaraKitara Posts: 1,224Registered Users
    As I'm reading Perfect Match I'm asking myself, "Why does nearly every one of Jodi's books have adultry or near-adultry in them?" I don't get it.

    ETA: I just finished Perfect Match. The adultry could have easily been left out of it and frankly it's getting old. That said, I enjoyed the book. It was very emotional for the main character and at times I had a hard time empathizing with her, but overall I liked the story.

    I just finished the 10th Circle or something like that. I didn't like it as well as I liked her earlier books and, yeah, the adultery is there :)

    Notty I had a hard time getting into Mercy too, but I am glad that I finished it. Her books are either impossible to put down or slow going, but they always end up being enjoyable either way. I have read most of hers so far :)

    I read Change of Heart, I LOVED it. It took me a while to read it but it was a great story, but I was left with a lot of questions at the end.

    That's one thing that bothers me some about her books.. sometimes at the end I'm like...whaaattt???? For the most part I like her books..however I tried reading Keeping Faith twice and just can't get into it...

    I understand that her son's English class in High School read My Sister's Keeper and was so mad at the ending of the book that he didn't talk to his Mom for days.........I find all her books are really about current topics - school shootings, mercy killings, sex abuse etc. etc. She has an awesome mind!

    ITA. She is an amazing author. She has certainly raised the bar in my taste for books. She is such a smart writer that many of the other books I've read since her's are "fluffy" in comparison.
    I think I've read almost all of her's except for one. My favourite, by far, has been My Sister's Keeper.
