Susie, after being raped and murdered by her neighbor, keeps looking at her family and friends as they try to continue with their lives. I quite liked the concept, but found the story w...

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 i...

The last time I read this was in either 2003 or 2004, I believe. It's been in my to-read pile for some time now; I was a little hesitant when I pulled its slip of paper from my Unread Books jar, as I a) couldn't remember much about the book except that it stayed with me for some time when I was youn...

This isn't a book isn't the sort of thing I'd usually pick up, but it's another book I remember my mom and sister reading and I did see the movie. I'm glad I finally read the book. I really liked that the book dealt with the murder right at the start and that you know who did it the whole time. I ...

50. THE LOVELY BONES, BY ALICE SEBOLDRecommended by Trisha Cook. After I started reading it, I realized that I had actually already watched the movie. Didn’t even know it was based on a book… But that really didn’t hamper my ability to enjoy it, I usually like to watch the movie first and read the b...

I have a lot of admiration for what Alice Sebold has done here - for a first novel, especially, this is terrific, and there are certain things in it, certain moments which are exquisite...

Could not finish. The story idea was a good one but it was not well executed. The characters were hard to like and the plot was dragging and never got interesting. The writing, well, I have seen much better. I tired and I tried to finish but there was nothing holding me in the book: the language, th...
