My Sister’s Keeper, take two



I really don’t want to make a habit of re-blogging books that have already been covered, but I guess this sort of adds to the discussion as well.  I finally read this book (thanks for the inspiration Wendy).  My cover was this one with the characters from the movie in it.  Can anyone tell me who plays which character?  I count two older people and one younger but there are two young main characters…  hmm.  I’m guessing Abigail Breslin is Anna, but I have been looking at this book cover all along and it is screwing up my internal visualizations of the characters.  That is one thing with books made in to movies.

Anyways, I also would recommend this book.  It presents a good ethical case (esp as a physician that might face this dilemma in the maybe not so distant future of medicine)– see Wendy’s previous blog for a synopsis.  As the court trial progresses (and no, this is not a story that takes place mainly in a courtroom thankfully for me), you are caught in between which way you feel is right.  I think they did a decent job resolving it, although I can’t say I liked the ending.  For those of you that have read/seen it, this statement seems obvious, but I think I was more disappointed in how much time it took developping a story and then with a few sentences it pulled the rug out from under you.  I guess some people like that, it was just a little brisk for me.

I’d also like to know “who” plays the dog.  Funny character.

    Meg…good job with all the reading! We should make a date for a personal pan pizza. Book-it all the way!!! I bet you will be better at keeping up on the reading than I will. You will have to pester me to keep reading once school starts in a couple of weeks. See you soon (I hope!).

    Cameron Diaz (on the left) plays the mom. Kate is on the right, played by Sofia Vassilieva. (Ok, I’m not going to lie, I had to look up her name on IMDB.)

    The movie ends completely differently than the book…
