One of the main events that occurred was when Kate was diagnosed with Kidney failure and had to go for dialysis and their family doctor had told their mother that Anna had to give a kidney to Kate in order for Kate to stay alive.

Anna did not want to do so as she knew if she did it this time she was going to have to continuously give something from her body to Kate each time and so she sued her parents for the rights to her own body with the help of a lawyer named Campbell. Her mother then pulled out a pair electric grooming clippers cut a swash right down in the middle of her scalp. And Anna did the same so that Kate will not feel awkward. After reading this little portion, I was touched at how much both her mother and Anna loves Kate and how much mothers are willing to sacrifice for their children.

From this story I have learnt that we should be optimistic in everything we do even in the face of challenges. Thus, in future, when I am faced with a challenge I will remember to be optimistic, to persevere and to have the courage to overcome any challenge. I enjoyed that there were many adrenaline pumping parts that made the book a real page turner. This book is also available on eReads at www.

Picoult could've easily cut out about pages and had a much better story. Although the stories of Jesse, Campbell, and Julia are irritating, nothing is more infuriating than how the author ties up the story in the end. She creates this wonderful dilemma but and here's where I get nasty doesn't have the talent to pull it off.

My Sister's Keeper Review

Instead of wading around in the murkiness of deciding between the possibility of saving one life if only for a short while and respecting the life and decisions of another, Picoult takes the easy way out. When on the stand, Anna now explains that she not only started the petition for personal or selfish reasons, but because Kate secretly asked her too.

While this might be a very probable scenario in real life - a chronically ill patient simply wanting it to all end - I was interested in seeing where Picoult could take us without this shortcut. The starting topic no longer becomes such a controversy when the recipient doesn't want what the donor is offering. That's right, we learn that Anna was willing to donate her kidney until Kate told her not to. Can you see the satin bow coming out, about to be neatly tied around all of this? In the end, Anna is granted medical emancipation from her parents.

Even still, Anna considers giving her kidney to Kate. On one hand she doesn't want to lose her sister, but another part of her realizes her life may be better once Kate is dead. But we never learn what Anna decides in the end, because the author commits the ultimate cop out. She kills Anna off. Anna gets into a horrible car accident where she's conveniently made brain dead, but still physically alive so her organs can be harvested.

That's right! Kate gets her kidney after all and lives! This ending was complete bullshit. The ethical and moral questions that set this book up were abandoned in the end. In the end, no tough decisions needed to be made.

Eight years later, Kate is alive and well. Her parents, although deeply effected by Anna's death, have managed to pull themselves back together. We're told that Brian, the father, had a drinking problem for a while after Anna's death, but not to worry - he clawed his way back to the family. Good for him. How nice; glad that whole setting elementary schools on fire stage passed for him. I felt that throughout the book the author was making a case for Anna and how invisible she felt in her own family.

Anna desperately wanted to be in charge of her own life. Anna wanted to be seen as an individual, not Kate's lifeline. Instead of Kate always being giving a chance, Anna wanted a chance to become her own person. In the end, her creator, her author, didn't even care enough to find out what that might mean.

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 f Have you ever read a book that really pissed you off?

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 sister back; Spare Parts isn't allowed to go to overnight camp and is being forced to quit playing her favorite sport because Leukemia needs a new kidney.

Spare Parts goes to a lawyer in an attempt to get medical emancipation from her parents. She winds up winning it, but dies in a car crash. Mom pulls the plug immediately, Leukemia gets a new kidney, and - even better - Leukemia is magically cured of her illness altogether.

Also, there was a stupid subplot about the lawyer and social worker falling in love. The mother character annoyed me the most here; she didn't love her daughters equally, and it showed. It really showed. She loved Leukemia the way you love a child. She loved Spare Parts the way you love that child's trust fund or college savings. She played favorites and made no attempt to hide it.

This whole book infuriated me - the very idea of having another kid just so your sick child can have her own personal organ bank sickens me. It really does. You're supposed to have a child because you will love that child, not to fill the needs of another child. View all comments. May 28, Lisa rated it it was ok. 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.

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 As I said before: I'm still reading this book but I'm not sure why. She just writes in this odd way that gets on my nerves. She made not so subtle comparisons to the stars and the lonely people on earth, to a fire and a disease, a firefighter and a mother who wants to save her dying daughter. I couldn't take it. But I know it's just me and that other people are going to love this story.

I thought I knew how it was going to end but when it ended differently that I expected, my thought was "Oh yeah, I should have figured that one out. Much sappier than my prediction. I have the same feelings toward Alice Hoffman and Anita Shreve. I once found an Anita Shreve book in the basement of the house I moved into, crammed under the oil tank. Never one to pass up a book, I gave it a read, got two chapters in and wanted to throw it back under the oil tank myself. I think these authors try too hard and that's what irritates me.

But don't let me stop you. Just don't say I didn't warn you. View all 40 comments. Shelves: least-favorite-of-all-time. View all 25 comments.

Ending: Basically the worst ending I've ever read in anything. 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 This could have been good- really good.
