I hope more people respond becoz I love reading books even though I don't always get time.

Name: My French Whore by Gene Wilder
Genre: Fiction
Summary: Despite it's title it is infact a very nice old fashioned love story about about a brave soldier who thinks that he is a coward. I borrowed the book mainly becoz I was curious since the author is a welknown Hollywood actor. But after reading it I was pleasantly surprised.

Rating: at least 4/5

Thanx for your curiosity in the book.

First of all it is based in the time of the world war and the prose and writing style is very simple making it an easy read. The hero is depicted as more or less a very simple and straightforward person, who takes risks and also falls in love with a french girl.

I was pleasantly surprised because I rarely have had the opportunity to read such books nowadays, even the Germans are depicted as human beings with a heart in this book.

Name: My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult

Genre: Realistic Fiction..

Story Outline {Back of the Book}

Anna is not sick, but she might as well be. By age thirteen, 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.



Why do you recommend it: Its such a good book, i read all of it in one day. I couldn't stop reading it. Its so emotional and touching all at once. It actually is written by each characters point of view.

Other comment: This is based on a true story. There is a girl who has leukemia whose real name is katie and there was an actual baby made for her. Oh and be sure to have a box of tissues because i can guarantee that you're going to cry. 

Rating(scale of 1-5, 5 being the best): 5 Clap
