Sentimental and bathetic.

Good read in the beginning - slow through the middle.

A bookmoocher from Switzerland sent this book to me. I'm looking forward to reading it.

I couldn't put this book down. The beginning was the best part for me. It's an original story, really sad. When Buckley started asking for his sister and his dad tried to explain, I couldn't stop crying. He was my favourite character.
I hated the mother, her choices, everything about her.


Amazon Editorial Review

My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973. My murderer was a man from our neighborhood. My mother liked his border flowers, and my father talked to him once about fertilizer. This is Susie Salmon. Watching from heaven, Susie sees her happy, suburban family devastated by her death, isolated even from one another as they each try to cope with their terrible loss alone. Over the years, her friends and siblings grow up, fall in love, do all the things she never had the chance to do herself. But life is not quite finished with Susie yet ..."The Lovely Bones" is a luminous and astonishing novel about life and death, forgiveness and vengeance, memory and forgetting - but, above all, about finding light in the darkest of places. 'Spare, beautiful and brutal prose ..."The Lovely Bones" is compulsive enough to read in a single sitting, brilliantly intelligent, elegantly constructed and ultimately intriguing.' - "The Times". 'Moving and compelling ...It will put an imperceptible but stealthily insistent hold on you. I sat down in the morning to read the first couple of pages; five hours later, I was still there, book in hand, transfixed.' - Maggie O'Farrell, "Sunday Telegraph".

I received this book in today's mail - thank you, FeistyPom2Love! This book was recommended to me by a close friend, but I haven't really gotten the chance to read it until now. I'll read and release as soon as I can; it should make a great early summer read :)
