Book Review – The Lovely Bones

November 7, 2009

The Lovely Bones I knew this was coming out as a movie this winter so I decided to read it.  Don’t know if I will watch the movie.  Kind of ruins it for me because they don’t usually do books justice with movies.  They miss a lot of the depth.  This wasn’t always easy to read, especially if you have kids.  You read it and just hope and pray nothing like this would ever happen, but then the book moves on from the murder and actually is the story of Susie watching her family from heaven and trying to help and be there and her family struggles with her death. 

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was totally caught up in the story of this book and the lives of the family and friends Susie Salmon leaves behind when she is murdered. Also caught up in Susie’s watching and “haunting” of those family and friends and her murderer. It’s interesting to read a story about how a violent death of someone affects the people around them and how they cope, or don’t, and how it changes them all. View all my reviews >>
