Reader reviews for My Sister's Keeper: A Novel

This books ending killed me inside. I read this book in a matter of a few days because I loved it so much. I realized if it would have had the "happy ending" I wanted it wouldn't have been real. It would have been like any other book. Amazing book. Realistic author.

I was asked by my English teacher to read this book. At first, I thought it would be like the other cancer books i've read; you know how it goes. The author makes you easily fall in love with the main character and then kills them brutally, and crushes your own soul until you drown your sorrows in oreos and chocolate milk. This book, however the same results happened, was much different. I can't quite explain why, but it just was. Maybe it was the fact that you see the story from all possible angles except the one of the patient. I don't know, but i definitely like it.

Touching story, well written, interesting combination of legal and personal perspectives. I liked that the author switched between different characters to tell the entire story.

I'm not usually into "family saga" kinds of books, but I found it really easy to be drawn into the first person writing style. The characters and their situation were interesting and heartwarming (don't I sound old?).I like the complete moral dilemma in the book and rather than being frustrated with the constant jumping back into the past, it added a different dimension to the current events, yet one that would have seemed boring had it been written in a linear chronological order. The book has a surprising amount of subplots and twists seamlessly woven into the story of Anna's courtcase over the rights to refuse to donate a kidney to her sister, Kate, who'll die without it. I didn't expect it to end how it end. I love the subplot with Campbell and Julia. Wouldn't it be great if every asshole turned out to be a Campbell?Surprisingly good book. Interesting plot, likeable and realistic characters, good writing style - it all has you hooked before you know it.

Wow. Wow. Wow. This is my first brush with Jodi Picoult's work and I can say with utmost confidence it not my last. For someone who has never experienced long term illness in a loved one first hand, I found the subject matter of this book very difficult to wrap my head around. It is a mark of an amazing author when her book throws a reader into a tailspin of thought provocation and manages to entertain the reader at the same time. What a FANTASTIC reading experience.Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.Suggested With: Hot Chocolate and a warm bed on rainy morning.
