I would like to start a new discussion about Picoult's books.
She has written many good books.
I am currently reading My Sister's Keeper and I'm liking it so far.
She opened the door for discussion in this book so maybe we can discuss who's side might have the best opinion about the issue thrown here.

i read my sister's keeper as well. fantastic read.. read a couple of other books by her.

my sister's keeper is basically about this girl who apparently 'lives under the shadow of her older sister'.

the english used is quite simple and it's an easy read. jodi picoult may not have the flair of language but she certainly has a bag full of ideas!

Her books always have a moral dilemma in them. In 'mercy' it's the husband-wife dilemma, in 'perfect match' we have the mother-son relationship being examined. her books are good, I've read a number of them. However, I realise that after reading more books, they tend to revolve around the same things: a moral dilemma. Still, it's a very good read. My Sister's Keeper is going to be made into a movie too! Starring prob Dakota Fanning (!) and Cameron Diaz (!!).

i can see why dakota fanning is selected but cameron diaz? wouldnt it be better if it was nicole kidman.
as for picoult's stories, it was a fun heart dropping read. i couldnt stop turining the pages.
