Does anyone know what this Wonder Woman book is with Jodi's name on it???


message 7: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 23 comments I haven't read

Songs of the Humpback
Picture Perfect
Harvesting the Heart (but have started it once or twice)

and I'm about 1/2 way through Mercy.

I've read everything else.

For anyone who hasn't read it, Second Glance was great. It took a little bit for all the characters to come togther but once they did it was awesome. It's one you don't hear about as much but I loved it.


message 8: by Lauren (new)

Lauren | 27 comments I have not yet read:

Change of Heart
Vanishing Acts

and I have only read half of Songs of the Humpback Whale...couldn't stay interested.


message 9: by Kathy McC (new)

Kathy McC | 36 comments So what did you think? I haven't had a chance to start it. Kathy


message 10: by Megan (new)

Megan | 10 comments Mod
lauren and kathy,
you only need the first half (songs of the humpback whale) because the story basically retells itself. Perhaps it was one half about the guys story and the other half from girls. You didnt miss much. I had a hard time getting through it.


message 11: by Pinkbullets (new)

Pinkbullets | 3 comments Hello :)

I have read only:
- My Sister's Keeper
- Plain Truth
- Perfect Match

Soon will be reading:
- Nineteen Minutes

* * *

So far, I liked My Sister's Keeper best. The plot was so gripping and what a courageous ending. Can't imagine that Hollywood wants to change the ending for the movie?!

Regards,
Caecilia


message 12: by Coralie (new)

Coralie Johnson My Sister's Keeper was one of most favorite books ever! I've also read & liked:
Salem Falls
Picture Perfect
Vanishing Acts

Read and didn't like:
Harvesting the Heart
Tenth Circle






message 13: by Coralie (new)

Coralie Johnson I didn't know that Hollywood was planning to change the ending. The ending is what makes the story so very compelling!!!

I know!
Isn't this incredible.

One Goodreads-member was at a signing of Jodi Picoult and posted on here that Picoult was pretty upset when she told the fans that the film-producers wanted to change the ending.

This Goodreads-member also posted two email-addresses where fans of Picoult's book could write to, although I doubt that filmmakers would listen to us - still, it is better than doing nothing.

In case you are interested, these are the two persons:
Mark Johnson: mark@granviaprod.com
Toby Emmerich: toby.emmerich@newline.com

I am definitely going to give them my viewpoint, any additional help is definitely appreciated by Jodi Picoult :)

Regards from Vienna,
Caecilia


message 15: by Jaime (new)

Jaime | 74 comments I did email both Mr. Johnson and Mr. Emmerich with a respectful email quite a while ago. Guess what? I never heard back. The original email giving the addresses also alleged they said that "readers didn't matter" and I was more concerned with this statement than the ending change. I asked them if, in fact, this statment was made. So many people loved My Sister's Keeper and it was such a widely read book. Perhaps readers should boycott the movie and tell their friends to too. Then they will see how much readers matter.

Jaime,

I can imagine how frustrating that must have been for you. Yes, probably that is exactly what we readers should do, boycott the movie.

My sister (who loves the book as much as I do) told me that in any case she was wondering whether Cameron Diaz (?) would really fit the mother's role?!

In any case, this statement (readers don't matter) is absolutely disrespectful, hurting and it makes me turn away in disgust to see how Hollywood simply pays money to get the rights for the movie & don't give the slightest shxx about how the author herself feels about the movie adaption.

This is bad, very much so.


message 17: by Jaime (new)

Jaime | 74 comments Thanks for the support, Pinkbullets!

I was wondering the exact same thing about Cameron Diaz.......
