Day 11 -- disappointing

Day 11 – A book that disappointed you

I began reading Jodi Picoult books some years ago and have really enjoyed her stories. They're always about difficult subjects, often controversial, always about relationships. I'm not even sure which of her books I read first.

But I picked up "My Sister's Keeper" expecting it to be good, a complex intertwining of dilemmas and relationship truths. And it was, up until the last bit.

If you've seen the movie, you know how that ends. It is an expected ending, I suppose, but it also was very logical. The book ends differently, and it was a big disappointment to me, a huge shock that I was not prepared for at all. If you want a spoiler, you can read about it here.

I hate to get disappointing books. I have a ton of them. I've heard of "My Sister's Keeper" but haven't read it.
