My Sisters Keeper
I just finished the book "My Sisters Keeper" last week and I still can't get it out of my head. It's that good. It's so good that I wish I had come up with the idea and written it myself. Except I wouldn't have because it had way to much medical mumbo jumbo that would take far too long to research for me to get the facts right. And we know by now how I am with things messing with my creative juices.
This book was amazing. The story itself was incredible and touching and in addition I loved how Jodi Picoult wrote each chapter in a different characters perspective. I found myself totally agreeing and relating with one person and hating the rest, until I got to the next chapter and suddenly I felt sympathetic towards that person as well. By the time I finished the book, I loved and understood every single person in the story.
There are moments of tears, frustration and sadness, but I promise it all ends well and it is worth every emotion you feel along the way. There were so many parts that I was shocked by that I would grab Jimmy and read it out loud to him so he could feel the shock along with me. I don't think I've ever done that with a book and him before.
So, there. My new favorite this week. There are only a few books that I love, love, love (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is one...), and this one made it to my top five for sure.
