Magic in North America Part 1: In Uncategorized by Adrienne K.
I give away the horribly disappointing ending. I was immediately intrigued by the subject of the book. The Fitzgerald family has one daughter, Kate, dying of kidney failure.
Their other daughter, Anna, is a perfect donor match to Kate. The fact that Anna is a perfect match is no surprise considering Anna was conceived with Kate in mind. Now thirteen years later, and several procedures later, Anna is refusing to donate a kidney.
Simply, she argues "it never stops. Later Anna gave lymphocytes, then bone marrow, then granulocytes, then peripheral blood stem cells.
And now she is expected to give a kidney. How do you weight the lives of these two young girls? The author came up with a brilliant grey pool of possibilities.
But the book sank. I was bored with the lame history of the high school romance between Campbell and Julia. They had a sudden breakup, and now 15 years later they still secretly pine for one another - blah. The plot is stupid: Julia was the poor girl that ended up in a rich school her oh-so-loving parents desperately got her into.
Campbell is drawn to her because apparently no other girl in his rich kid school thought to dye their hair. What was even worse was the dialogue between Julia and Campbell or Julia and her sister. A lot of horrible one-liners; just awful dialogue in general.
The story when told through Jesse, the year-old delinquent brother of Anna and Kate, is also generally ridiculous.
Although the stories of Jesse, Campbell, and Julia are irritating, nothing is more infuriating than how the author ties up the story in the end. Instead of wading around in the murkiness of deciding between the possibility of saving one life if only for a short while and respecting the life and decisions of another, Picoult takes the easy way out.
When on the stand, Anna now explains that she not only started the petition for personal or selfish reasons, but because Kate secretly asked her too.
While this might be a very probable scenario in real life - a chronically ill patient simply wanting it to all end - I was interested in seeing where Picoult could take us without this shortcut.Yesterday I wrote about the trailer for JK Rowling’s new multi-part background pieces on Pottermore, entitled “Magic in North America.” You should read the post here if you need lausannecongress2018.com before that, back in June, I wrote about my concerns with the bringing of the “magic universe” to the States.
