Reads and Thoughts

Ola! I'm one of those crazy girls who is overly addictive to books and reading. I'm weird around books and tends to read them abnormally fast. And I'm a hopeful romantic who is a firm believer of Happily Ever Afters.
My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult I never really get a chance to watch the movie version of this book so i was definitely blind about the story of it. As i was reading it was faced with a lot of questions like "What's wrong with Anna?" "What is this all about?" "Why does her mom treats her like that?" and so on. The opening remark Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. definitely captures my interest. It was a heartbreaking story which opens us to the different struggles a family with a little girl who has leukemia was facing and mainly a 13 year old child who served as a donor every time her sister needs any essential elements of her body. The lawyer Campbell is one of my favorite character in this story, his love story just interests me and how he still gives a certain effect to the girl (who was his first love and now Anna's litigator) in the name of Julia. Its fun following their love story as the story progress. I was just a little disappointed in the ending though, i want it to end in a different way not in just a sudden accident. I know as i start reading this books that someone would definitely die but i just don't want it to end like how it ended (i don't want to elaborate on how it ended) But i just wish it ended differently. (WOW! IT'S FULL OF THE WORD END! HAHA! )

In all, It gives us an idea what it means to be a good sister, daughter, parent or a person. As the author says, it gives us the dilemma if it is morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are, if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart, or let others lead you?
