Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age 13 she has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions, and shots so that her older sister, Kate, can somehow fight the leukemia that has plagued her since childhood. The product of preimplantation genetic diagnosis, Anna was conceived as a bone marrow match for Kate - a life and a role that she has never challenged...until now. Like most teenagers, Anna is beginning to question who she truly is. But unlike most teenagers, she has always been defined in terms of her sister - and so Anna makes a decision that for most would be unthinkable, a decision that will tear her family apart and have perhaps fatal consequences for the sister she loves.

My Sister's Keeper examines what it means to be a good parent, a good sister, a good person. Is it morally correct to do whatever it takes to save a child's life, even if that means infringing upon the rights of another? Is it worth trying to discover who you really are if that quest makes you like yourself less? Should you follow your own heart or let others lead you? Once again, in My Sister's Keeper, Jodi Picoult tackles a controversial real-life subject with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity.

    "A five star story destroyed by the last 15 minutes"

    Up till the last 15 minutes, this was on the fast track to being one of the best books I'd ever listened to - I hadn't expected to be so moved by it, and the subject matter was handled in a way I hadn't anticipated at all. But the 'twist' at the end was so ham-fisted, poorly handled and flat out unnecessary for the overall message of the book, to the point of ruining the experience for me.

    The audio quality and performance was mostly excellent, only issue I encountered was during a Brian chapter when he was talking to Mr Alexander, it became difficult to distinguish if someone was speaking or if it was Brians thoughts, and if someone was speaking, then who.

    "Depressing "

    Depressing, dull and lightweight prose. This book was highly rated elsewhere and was my first Jodi Picoult novel. I would not seek out another one from this author.

    "Incredible!!"

    My Sisters Keeper starts off slow but gradually becomes extremely riveting towards the climax. The plot twist at the end of the story will have you on the edge of your seat. This story made me cry multiple times!! 👍🏼

    "Lifetime movie material"

    If you are interested in reading a lifetime movie instead of watching one, you are in luck. The vocal performances were passable, but brought too much schlocky subtext for my palate. That said, if you need a chill beach read and a good cry, have at it.

    "A warm and touching story, if a bit contrived"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend the book to a friend. It's a nice story about family and people who are caught between a rock and a hard place. We can all identify with one character or another as they struggle with some tough times and decisions.


    Any additional comments?

    Have you ever seen a grown man cry? Well, that was me at several points in this book. It's real and very touching, even if the overall story is a bit contrived. I liked the book and would recommend it.

    "A Very Important Book"
    What made the experience of listening to My Sister's Keeper the most enjoyable?

    It is a true reflection of humanity in all its shame and glory. The story pulled me in so many different directions. It reminded me that our feelings are our true guides in life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It ended the way it was supposed to end.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It evoked just about every emotion I am capable of feeling. Sadness, anger, fear, pity, indignation, surprise, anticipation, and love.


    Any additional comments?

    This book provoked the energy that feeds important dialogue and debate.It heightened my admiration for the work of talented authors and actors. It did what great art is supposed to do. It provoked thought and emotion. I walked away from this one feeling the way I always feel when I have experienced a fine work of art. Great books such as this one are what makes reading a worthwhile act of life.

    "Outstanding"

    I chose this book after enjoying the movie. The book is actually quite a lot better than the movie with a profoundly different ending. My Sister’s Keeper is written so beautifully with alternating perspectives, and the cast of narrators just makes this audiobook shine. Every narrator did a remarkable job and I was utterly impressed. I highly recommend this book, but be warned that it is a fairly emotional story.

    "So many emotions"

    This book throws so many obstacles, points of view, feelings are all over the place. You will laugh, cry, relate. You can feel this book on a personal level. It makes you open your eyes to the fact that some people actually go through this everyday. Be thankful for what you have and the opportunity to read/listen to this book.

    "Not the ending you think"

    Spellbinding. The twist and turn keep you on edge. This story brings so many emotions. Anger, tears, sorrow and a feeling of has medical advances and science gone to far.
    Anna comes across as a lovable confused teen who only want to fit in. She is afraid of disappointing and losing the love of her parents.
    Jesse in. One word is lost
    Brian runs away from the home issue thru his work. Fighting fires give him the control he's loss due to terminal illness.
    Sarah is pretty easy to dislike. After she is determined to have her way regardless of who falls victim. She has 3 children, but is all consumed with care of only one. She grabs the idea to create a life as a means to get life saving parts. She reminds her husband when he disagrees with her plans "Anna was created with genetic engineering to be a donor for her sister"
    Ready to hate and paint mom as a cold hearted bitch that ignores both children except the ill one. Who marginalize her her husband? What you you do to save your child, how far you you go? I came away not Judging in the end. Like I say lots of twist and turns. Not the ending you expect.

    "Fine line between live and hate"

    Sometimes things we love are also things we hate! I loved this book. It was thought provoking, sweet, and had the type of twists that I love about Ms. Picoult's books. Also in line with her books this one left a hole in my heart. Sigh....
