Review: My Sister’s Keeper
Posted Monday 08.Aug.11on:
‘My Sister’s Keeper’ is story of family, love, self-discovery (at all ages), and ultimately ethics vs morals. Picoult presents the many tough “what-if” questions starting with parenthood, but branching into what it means to be basically human.
Each character gets his or her say, and in their own font, no less. The seemingly segregated style of story telling, isolating each character’s thoughts, weaves a world of complex logic-meets-emotion where we can dive-in to develop a relationship with each of them; it’s a natural drawn world where no clear antagonist or protagonist exists.
Beautifully crafted and compelling, we’re reminded that perspective is relative, and there is no magic formula for right and wrong.
