Sad books and bad movies
For anyone who has not read My Sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult, it is very well written but sad. From BARD: “When a child is diagnosed with a rare leukemia her parents create test-tube baby Anna to save her life. After years of medical procedures Anna, now thirteen, is expected to donate a kidney. She files for medical legal emancipation and throws the family into a fundamental moral crisis.”
One of the worst movies I have seen in a long time was Paul. It was my son’s birthday last week and it sounded like a movie he would like, and it was showing at the theater in descriptive movie, so I was happy to be able to go see it with my son. No plot really, just a series of sketches and, to me, just a dumb movie.
Want to mention a book that I have enjoyed in the last two months. I have read a lot in the last couple of months and this was my favorite. I really liked The Lucky One. I think that even men would enjoy it. I like other Nicolas Sparks books but am not real crazy with the ones that have a good amount of death in them, especially the one where the main character dies. However, really found this one to be good. It’s available from BARD and Talking Books.
