Summary:

Once in a generation a novel comes along that taps a vein of universal human experience, resonating with readers of all ages. THE LOVELY BONES is such a book -- 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.

    it was immaculate I have yet to read a book that has caught my interest the way this book has and yet to find another book that is anything like this one I'd love to find something similar but I have yet to find anything as good as this book!!!!!!

  • Maite S

    Loved it! Sad but intriguing, some parts even funny. For the most part, it makes you wonder about the death in our lives. The author has somewhat of a monotone voice, however once into it, you sort of forget about that and really get into the story.

  • Vickie M

    Really well written. Tough story subject but written in a way that makes you glad you read it

  • Lilie Alspaw

    I love this book I love the movie as well but so sad and teaches kids to never trust anyone or trust strangers.

    This is a fantastic story, great writing, kept me glued to find out what was next. However, the author is a wonderful writer, I found her narrating her own novel hard to follow. She was very monotone and sing-song with her reading. It's a somber story, yes, but she had zero inflection. Very dry read for such a great story. I'd give it 4 stars if not for the narration.

  • Trisha Buck

    Really good story but the narration would have been good from a young girls voice.

  • Anonymous

    I thought that the author did a nice job reading her own novel. I guess others wanted her to change her voice according to the character or something. The book is well written, but is hard to listen to on the first CD as this is when the murder occurs. After that it is interesting and generally engaging. I expected a large, climatic ending as we all want the bad guy to pay a price for his evil deeds, but to me the book sort of ends with a whimper which is why I only gave it 3 stars instead of my intended 4.

  • Kelly Daw

    This was a book I'll never read again although I am glad I have read it. It was disturbing and terrible in its reality but the author shows truth in human nature which I am a fan of. The author should NEVER read her own stories as she is TERRIBLE as a narrator. Just TERRIBLE!

  • craig

    Its a good book but the writer should stick with writing because she sure cant narrate. Complete monotone.

  • Anonymous

    This book was interesting and very well written. It's read by the author and she does a great job. I highly recommend it.
