The Lovely Bones

We here at MMR have opinions on other things than music, as evidenced by the recent (ish) Dark Knight post. So today, I thought I’d say my peace about The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I read this book after a recommendation from a confidant. It’s about a girl, Susie, who gets murdered and goes to heaven, only to look down on those she left behind, from her family to her friends, and even to her murderer. One of the things I thought was really interesting and awesome about this book (and there were many) was the heaven painted by the author, which was very abstract from anything i’d pictured. Another neat thing was how Susie got to watch over people and see how her death affected those around her, whether it be her family, or a girl named Ruth who she had only encountered briefly on earth. I don’t want to go into too much detail regarding the happenings of the book, but I feel comfortable recommending this to all. On the Kyle Scale of Rating – a 6.5!
