My Sister's Keeper

I'm only halfway through this book so far, but as of right now I HATE the mother! Did anyone else feel that way? I just keep reading it and shaking my head (I KNOW it's a fictional book lol) and thinking about how crazy she is and what a b*tch she is. Am I the only one who feels that way? I just can't imagine creating a child just so that you can harvest things from them for another child. I mean, I would do just about anything to help my baby and keep her safe, but not at the risk of another one of my children.

  • Well, I felt like that for a while, then changed my mind a little on her. Just finish the book is all I'll say. :)

  • Yeah, I wasn't happy with her either. She did everything to help her one child, but the other really suffered for it.

  • I'm working on finishing it and probably will tomorrow, and I've been hoping that something would happen to change my mind about her. So far, though, I just keep hating her more and more.

  • I finished it and I HATED it. I was expecting so much more because I'd heard such good things about it, and Jodi Picoult in general. I will probably never read another of her books after this. I thought it was horrible. Someone please tell me the movie is better.
