Just wondering what everyone thought about the new movie My sister's Keeper?

I read the book, loved it and finished in it about 3 days. Just today I went to see the movie, and

cried the entire movie. It was good, but not as good as the book. They left quite a few things out too.

Thoughts??

As I was reading the post, I thought the ending was about to be ruined too. Good one!!LOL

I have read Handle with Care and I loved it, it was another one I couldn't put down. I have read all of her books, and can't wait for another new one. The book Plain Truth she wrote was also a movie, but I think it was a made for tv movie (it had that girl from Law and Order in it). Salem Falls is another good one, I didn't really enjoy Songs of a Humpback whale- kinda slow to get into...

Quoting Krista:

I just saw the movie with my mom...we both cried all the way through! I didn't read the book, but kept hearing that the book's ending was a lot better so I tried looking online to find out how it ends. I went to Wikipedia, and it explains about all the characters and the book's plot, which is all similar to the movie. Then I read how the book supposedly ends: Anna wins the court case, and the next day is abducted by aliens, who eat her kidney because it's a delicacy. Kate is then revealed as an alien clone sent to Earth to find an alternate food source!!!! I had never read a Jodi Picoult book, and after reading this, I was seriously losing respect for this author! I did some more checking, and, of course, that is NOT how the book ends, but I found it hilarious that they posted that on Wikipedia...I thought that site was supposed to be somewhat reliable?! I've since read Picoult's Handle With Care (loved it) and I'm just starting Nineteen Minutes. So far, no aliens!


Hahahahaha! Wikipedia is great, but anyone can add whatever they like to it, so it's not always very accurate!!



Ninteen Minutes is FAB!! I've read it twice now, one of my favourite Jodi Picoult books! :)

I've read the book and loved it. Haven't seen the movie yet. It seems the books are always better than the movies. Like Marley and Me. The movie was good but the book was better.

Loved all those books thought the movies didn't even have half the story in it! maybe I will get the dvd when it is out!

Yes there was definately times where you laugh and cry at the same time.

I agree LOVE Jodi Picoult- another good one is Handle with Care.

I also agree about the books being way better (PS I love You) great book, good movie loved the actor (can't think of his name) and the music. Guess that is why I married an Irishman!

It hasn't opened here yet but I definitely plan on seeing it - won't be reading this thread though so it doesn't spoil it for me ;-)
But I've never seen a book made into a movie where the movie was as good. The format's just too different and there's not enough time to fit everything in. I felt this way especially about P.S I Love You and Marley And Me..
