I'm on vacation and I was so busy the week before that I forgot to write and schedule this week's blog posts. I'm hoping the ol' laptop doesn't fail me now.
My first Jodi Picoult was My Sister's Keeper. I loved it, even the ending. Lots of people hate the ending, but for me, it was the only way it could end and be consistent with all the characters.
In my humble opinion, Jodi Picoult is one of the best writers publishing today. Her characters are real, even in unreal situations.
I also found a couple of movies based on Picoult's works that I watched in the last few months. Of course, the theatrical version of Sister's Keeper did pretty well, in spite of changing the ending 180 degrees.
The Pact could have been great. It was just mediocre as a movie.
The Plain Truth was excellent. Mariska Hargitay as an investigator who lives with an Amish family while trying to figure out what happened to the baby found dead. Part Agnes of God and part Witness, the movie is worth adding to your DVR or Netflix queue.
