Cannot. Wait.

I think I’ve told you guys like 47 times how much I love Jodi Picoult novels. And My Sister’s Keeper is sort of the staple of Jodi books. It’s usually everyone’s favorite. And above is the trailer for the movie version of it, which can’t possibly be as good but which I will totally see and bawl at.

    I haven’t read the book yet, but I see clearly how this will be a two-box-Kleenex movie. We shall see it. I’ll bring the Visine.

    Jodi Picoult makes me wish I didn’t know how to read. The gaping plot holes, the over-reaching ostentatious prose… ack. I’m sorry, Mock. I truly despise her books. I’ve never read this one before, but have read one other & read three pages of a second one before I took it back to the store & requested a refund on the grounds that it was unreadable.

    And I’m not a literature nazi, either. I love all kinds of high- and low-brow stuff. But not JP!

    This looks good! I wish they’d make a movie of ‘The Pact’ or ‘Plain Truth’ too. Those were my favorites.

  • Mockarena

    PurpleAnn – they did a TV movie of The Pact – I never saw it though so don’t know if it was any good. That book was in my top 3 of hers for sure. My all time fave is 19 Minutes which was just terrific. Plain Truth was great too!! 🙂

  • QuiteContrary

    Ug. I cried with the preview. Great. That means a summer blockbuster, alone, pregnant and crying.

  • ME

    That looks like a great movie. I heart Abigail. I will totally go see that one, but I really don’t want to cry in front of a lot of people… so I best sit in the back.

  • Captain Ana Banana

    Ooooh, can’t wait! It’s rare for a book to touch me as deeply as this one did. So sad, but so good! I definitely have to see this movie.

  • elizabeth.

    I don’t know anything about this author, or the plot, but this preview gave me chill bumps. It looks reeeeeeeally good.

    @QuiteContrary – Why alone?? :[

  • QuiteContrary

    Baby-daddy will be begining a three month externship in WV – So, he’ll be gone all summer.
    So sad.

  • elizabeth.

    AW! So Sorry! At least you’ll have everyone here at themockdock to keep you company!!!

    But, Congrats on being PREGO! I hope you’ve bought your mockdock onesy!

  • QuiteContrary

    I do plan to buy a MockDock onesie… But, not for a few more weeks. Mostly, because I want to know the sex of the baby so I can buy a coresponding color.
    And, I don’t want to buy it too early and have to wait six months to have a picture of the baby in it, posted for all to see.

    I think the haiku will be so much better if there is actually a baby in onesie.

    I usually hate to see movies made from books. They can never compete-but this one looks like a winner. Have you read the latest Wally Lamb book? I wish he would write as often as Jodi Picoult! That would be heaven!

  • Mockarena

    QC – OMG I would LOVE to do a haiku with a pic of your new baby mocker. YAY!

  • QuiteContrary

    Mock… I would have bought the maternity shirt in the store, if it didn’t make reference to landbeasts…
    Not exactly the image I’m looking to portray… 🙂

  • PurpleAnn

    I didn’t know a movie was made from The Pact. Thanks for the info. I’ll have to see if I can find a copy.

  • Lyonella

    Precocious child actors…blech.
    Sappy chikfliks….double blech.
    But everyone’s taste is different.
    What movies do I like? WWII stories, like Miracle at St Ann, for one.

  • QuiteContrary

    ok, so, I was dumb enough to find an exerpt from the book online… and now, I am begging Baby-daddy to go to Walmart with me at midnight to get the damned book.

    Baby-daddy is not having it. Because, he is studying for finals. 🙁

    So, I may be going out in the middle of the night, way after my bedtime… To get a book.

  • QuiteContrary

    Walmart did not have the book. So, I had to wait until the next day to buy it at Barnes and Nobel… So, I bought it at about 2pm and I finished it the same day at about 11:30pm (this did include two meals and a walk in the pretty spring weather).
    I was so angry when I got to the end. WHY DID IT END LIKE THAT!?

  • Mockarena

    How else could it end? It was an impossible situation. I’m so curious to see what they do with the movie, since apparently the ending is different.

    But seriously – how would you end it? Because I am completely torn about it. It was almost like the only way out.

  • QuiteContrary

    I don’t know. But, I felt like all of my favorite characters get crapped on through the whole book. Anna and Brian, I loved them so much… and I knew there was more going on than Anna had admitted to anyone… But, I kinda wanted her sister to die. I am sorry to say.
    Just seemed like no one really cared what Anna had given up to give life to her sister.
    I guess, it was the only way out, but that doesn’t mean I am happy about it!
    I don’t normally read fiction… so, I am unaccustomed to crying through a book. You don’t normally cry while you read facts and figures or interviews.
    Baby-Daddy thought I was crazed.
