The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A long time ago when I was in a bookclub, someone recommended this book, but somehow we decided against it. My friend's description of this book made it sound creepy and weird, and like the girl's sister also gets raped by the neighbor, which, unless I totally missed about 100 pages did not happen.
This book was so much better than I expected, and I really want to give it 4.5 stars. It was just short of amazing, in that I was able to put it down.
This book is poignant and well written. I found the characters and the family dynamics to be believable within the realm of this story. And the grandmother rocks.
You should read this book.
