      I was apprehensive about reading Alice Seabold’s “The Lovely Bones mainly because of the subject matter. The books lead character Susie Salmon is a 14 year old schoolgirl who is murdered by her neighbour.

      I thought it would be a very difficult book to read and only picked it up out of boredom one night.

      I’m very glad I


      did.

      The book is written from Susie’s point of view from her vantage point in “her” heaven.

      She looks down on her family and sees how her untimely death affects them all in different ways.

      The book is written over a period of many years and we see how her parents, sister, small brother and her friends evolve in ...


      • the wake of her murder.

        This is one of the best books I have ever read.

        It is supebly crafted and Alice Seabold creates a lovely, realistic heaven.

        The characters are extremely believable and Alice Seabold paints a clever and ultimately real picture of a family torn apart by grief.

        This is not, however, a depressing book.

        There are

        many sad parts, of course, but “The Lovely Bones is a book about how people get their lives back together after tragedy, no matter how hard it is.

        This novel even manages to have a happy ending (as much of a happy ending as you can get with a book like this) and you go away feeling exhilarated, even happy afterwards.

        Highly recommended.
