My Sister's Keeper: A Novel

My Sister's Keeper - Jodi Picoult This book bothered me. Firstly, I really didn't like the concept of a child being born to save their other child. I guess not liking the initial concept is a barrier to liking a book. I honestly would not have read or finished it if I wasn't on holidays and willing to read anything.

I absolutely despised the sideline love story and I skipped over every single chapter of it. It was unnecessary and boring. I didn't like most of the characters, especially the mother. The ending was horrible and rushed. There were too many cheesy, meant-to-be-sentimental moments.

When I tell people I hate this book in real life they get defensive because apparently everyone loves it. I don't understand why. My only reasoning is that people are suckers for any kind of sad story. It was such a relief when I saw on goodreads that I wasn't the only person who hated this book.

Honestly 2/5 was a generous rating.
