The Lovely Bones

I know this book has been around for quite some time, but I am just now getting around to reading it.

I had always heard mixed things about this book, some people really enjoyed it, and some people hated it. I have to say that I enjoyed it.

The Lovely Bones cover

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, is the story of a little girl that is murdered and then watches over her family and the investigation of her murder. I thought it provided a very unique perspective.

And. . .like the majority of the things I’ve reading, this book is about to be made into a movie directed by Peter Jackson and starring Mark Walhberg and Rachel Weisz. I can’t wait to see it.

Fortunately the murder happens in the beginning of the book so the majority of the book is spent watching Susie’s family cope with her death and how the investigation unfolds.
