The Lovely Bones: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience! *
Once in a generation comes an audiobook that taps a vein of universal human experience, resonating with listeners of all ages. THE LOVELY BONES is such a audiobook -- a #1 bestseller celebrated at once for its artistry, for its luminous clarity of emotion, and for its astonishing power to lay claim to the hearts of millions of readers around the world.
'My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973.'
So begins the story of Susie Salmon, who is adjusting to her new home in heaven, a place that is not at all what she expected, even as she is watching life on earth continue without her -- her friends trading rumors about her disappearance, her killer trying to cover his tracks, her grief-stricken family unraveling. Out of unspeakable tragedy and loss, THE LOVELY BONES succeeds, miraculously, in building a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, even joy.
*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

The book is wonderful, and I like the narration by the author. However, the music and sound effects were distracting and unnecessary. One of the joys of a novel is that it allows for the reader’s imagination. I don’t need foreboding music to tell me something is suspenseful. The writing is good enough to tell me that. I don’t need rain sound effects when the text tells me it’s a torrential storm.

The book was amazing. However I got a version that had a soundtrack to it. The music in the background was so distracting and volume wise very in consistent. I was not a fan of the narrator at all. She spoke in one tone the entire time. She didn’t seem very interested in the book. I enjoy an audiobook when the narrator tries to use different voices for the characters.

It was a moving, tragic, but beautiful story. The narrator was a bit off putting since Susie was a young lady and the narrator being a woman, still give full props because she’s the author of the work. Awfully stunning.
