2008-06 Discussion of My Sister's Keeper, Read YA Lit (huhtikuu 2012)


This was not one of my favorite Jodi Picoult books. The dual stories of Melina Green in the present day and Emilia Bassano in the 16th century were interesting but also dragged on at times. The book just felt too long. But it was obviously very well researched and gave a fascinating perspective on Shakespeare's works. Thanks to NetGalley for the digital ARC.

I love the story arc and the complex plot, however the writing style was painfully slow so I ended up switching to the audio version.

Moving back and forth in time, this novel describes the difficulties of women playwrights in both contemporary and Elizabethan times. Picoult obviously did a great deal of research about the historic person of Emilia Bassano, the first published English woman poet who could conceivably have been the actual author of several of the plays attributed to William Shakespeare. In contemporary New York, struggling author Melina Green is fascinated by Bassano's story and writes a play about her. In both times the women are unable to be published or produced because of their gender, and so solicit men to claim the work as their own. I found this novel interesting enough to follow up with research of my own, and the story will stay with me. However, I thought that the pace lagged in the middle, and found myself wishing that the plot would move along.… (lisätietoja)

While this style of novel isn't the kind I would normally be attracted to, I picked it up because I felt a sense of obligation to read one of Picoult's novels after using a quote from her so often. ("You can always edit a bad page. You can't edit a blank page.") I'm glad I decided to familiarize myself with her work because this book was riveting. Elephant behavioral scientists (or maybe they're just specialized biologists?) conduct their research in the wild and in a rural space where an elephant sanctuary has been set up. The story begins with their daughter ten years after one of them has been institutionalized and the other had disappeared. Picoult has definitely done her research to make the elephants more real and it gives them just as much depth as her human characters (maybe more). There are some beautiful moments in this book of bonding and grief and fighting to regain control of your life. This book is a wild ride that did not go where I expected it to and had me tearing up at the end.… (lisätietoja)
