# 9 - The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

This one will definitely categorised in the "books that made me cry". I did not really cry, but my throat was often really tight and my eyes watering.  This is a tragic story. So beautifully told. It is sad, but it is also full of hope.

Some recents event made me even more emotional about this. But it gave me hope, I like to think they are in their heaven watching over us all, and most importantly, they are together.

This book was heartbreaking.  The death of Susie (it's really no spoiler) was not sad, it was tragic but told in a "practical" way. No, what was sad was Susie watching over the people she loves, the people she used to know. Seeing how their lives were going on without her. How her mother needed space, her father was devastated and her siblings had a really hard time.

This story was beautifully written. The plot had no real importance, it was there to show you that life is going on, you cannot stop it. What was important in this book were the words used by the author.
I really recommend it if you are in the mood for a sad/beautiful book.

Book Review: The Lovely Bones
The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

Book: The Lovely Bones

 

Author: Alice Sebold

 

Genre: Fiction/Slice of Life/Thriller/Mystery/Paranormal/Spiritual/Crime

 

Summary (from back of Little, Brown edition): “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 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. - Little, Brown 2009.

Lucky - Alice Sebold

Lucky made me sad and happy and angry and i enjoyed reading it. It was very insightful. I think the author did a very good job of explaining why she did what she did when she was attacked and her feelings during and after. There's also more humor in it than one would expect from a memoir about rape.

Bellissimo e intrigante, un libro psicologico angosciante che ti tiene incollato dalla prima all'ultima pagina. Il racconto delle 24 ore che seguono l'omicidio di una anziana donna da parte della figlia, Alice Sebold con abilità riesce ad entrare nella testa dell'assassina e farci capire cosa l'ha spinta a compiere il gesto, un libro meraviglioso, consigliato agli amanti della Sebold, se avete amato Amabili Resti adorerete questo volume *_*

The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

Finally, I did it. I read The Lovely bones. Three years ago I saw the film, and from that time wanted to read the book but not found the time or the book.But now i read the book four days that is for me quite a long time.This book is extremely emotion packed. Both book and movie are wonderful, but i like book more.Book was very good, beginning was a bit scary. The end was surprising and interesting.Maybe I should watch the movie again

“Murderers are not monsters, they're men. And that's the most frightening thing about them.” .
