Jodi Picoult can bite me.

So, I just finished reading My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. And after I closed the book, I threw it across the room in a fit of rage.

I wasn't angry at the characters or the story. I was angry with the author. I felt betrayed as a reader. BETRAYED!

I don't want to give anything away, but the ending made me want to slap Jodi Picoult around until she changed it to something more satisfying. It doesn't have to be a happy ending--I'm not asking for that. But an ending that doesn't make you feel like the emotions you invested in the previous 400 pages were a waste would be nice.

I haven't seen the movie, but in this case I think that the movie might be better than the book (even though I can't for the life of me picture Cameron Diaz as the mom). I'm sure it ends the same way, but you've only invested an hour and a half at that point. It might be easier to take.

Have any of you read it? Am I just crazy for feeling this way?

Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
