Ending Basically the worst ending I ve ever read in anything Ever Wish I wish someone had spoken up after the first read and called out the author on some of the really bad plot devices and decisions in this book Just like someone should have stopped George Lucas before Episodes 1 3 This could have been good really good But it just wasn t.
As I said before I m still reading this book but I m not sure why My mom lent me the book and she loved it, everyone tells me they loved it and I m sort of hating it while I read I just want to finish it and move on Maybe I ll change my tune when it s over.
Well I hate it less, but I m still not in love with it I think I know the problem, though It s Jodi Picoult My mom loves her, my sister loves her, everyone I know loves her and I can t stand her She just writes in this odd way that gets on my nerves What drove me nuts reading this one was the way that every chapter, almost every paragraph either ended with some sort of clich or some profound statement that was supposed to be so meaningful She made not so subtle comparisons to the star this book is a shameless and unskillful manipulation of human emotions i felt dirty when i was done with it the story is on par with cheap natural disaster movies like deep impact that are formulated to tug at your heartstrings in very predictable ways the author painfully over uses the dramatic blackout technique where she writes a line that s trying too hard to be clever or profound and then fades to black aka, leaves extra space before the next paragraph or ends a chapter sometimes with no time break between one sentence and the next such a cheap trick does this impress anyone any the author writes the entire novel as a cliff hanger another piece of shameless manipulation that i despise with the whole novel spanning no than a few days she builds up plot points that don t deliver whe Anyone who has a kid has probably, at one point or another, battled with them at bedtime That s what I do, every night There is much yelling, crying, begging and pleading It s horrible.
Kid 3 is out like a light, so she s not part of the problem Kid 2 puts up a good fight, whining and tantrum throwing, but eventually she succumbs to her sleepiness Kid 1, however well, she s another story altogether At night, she s afraid of everything and feels that if she sleeps something will get her But she s not invincible, she has to sleep sometime So after being assured that she s safe, she ll lay down and relax this can only happen in the master bedroom, because in her mind the master bedroom is safe from everything Once she s been lulled into bliss This book was stunning In writing, in style, in plot, in character It truly is one of those books that you really can t stop reading Especially for me, because in a way it took me back to my Lurlene McDaniel days Did anyone ever read her She was always writing books about different teenagers and young children with terminal illnesses I was addicted to those books So it was no surprise when the young reader in me sort of jumped up when I saw a friend of mine reading this book and she described it to me.
Boy was it a book well chosen Picoult writes from the views of a few different key characters, allowing the reader to get an extremely well rounded look at the story At first the jumping from character to character is a little jarring and you have to keep reminding yourself that it s a new character, but eventually you get into I hate novels where parenting is questioned, simply because I too often find myself thinking, Well I would never do THAT I then have to do the whole knock on wood routine and hope that I didn t just invite divine retribution for being too judgmental So it was with Jodi Picoult s novel My Sister s Keeper After reading the summary of the novel, I knew that I would never make the choices that the parents shown did After reading the novel, I found myself questioning what I might really do if my child was facing death In case you missed the summary, My Sister s Keeper is the story of Anna, a thirteen year old girl genetically conceived to be a match for her leukemia positive sister Within minutes of her birth, she was a donor for Kate, sharing her cord blood to save her sister s life By the time she is thi
Many are the yodels of praise for this horrifying book The details of the main character s use as a farm animal for a favored older sibling are too grisly to recount without vomiting on my keyboard.
People die Even when we don t want them to, and even when it hurts for them to, and even when we ve given them life It s happened to me I know it hurts, but the ghastly vile disgusting nauseating practice of having a child specifically to save another child Anyone who does that should be jailed This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.
Have you ever read a book that really pissed you off Pissed you off so much all you could do was rant about it until everyone told you to just shut up This is that book for me.
Picoult s dialogue is excellent, but her characters annoy me and the ending of this book was such a cop out I almost wrote her an angry letter about it, but decided against it, as she d never read it anyway.
Basically, My Sister s Keeper is about a family with three kids I forget their real names, so I m giving them fake ones Token Boy Child, Leukemia, and Spare Parts Mom and Dad find out about Leukemia s unfortunate diagnosis when she s just two, so they decide to have another baby not to replace Leukemia when she inevitably bites it, but to provide Leukemia with spare parts for organ transplants Spare Parts gets tired of being held back by her sister s needs and in turn, Leukemia gets tired of holding her siste Spoiler Alert This review contains spoilers.
I hated this book so much I only kept reading it because I had to find out why Campbell, the lawyer, had a service dog, since he kept that such a secret I hated the clich s Julia chose just that moment to crash through the door Anna chose that precise moment to speak up Rita chose this moment to gag on bad writing.
I hated the overwrought melodrama Everything was just so saturated with heavy handed tear jerking prose that the book was soggy and just about dripping About halfway through the book, I started skimming it, looking for dialogue relevant to the plot Brian s metaphors about fire and Sara s reminiscing about the kids childhoods and Campbell s backflashes about Julia and Julia being pathetic in every possible way and Anna s cluelessness just got so ve
