The Lovely Bones

I read this book my sophomore year of high school. At the time, a friend of mine from camp, whom I had not kept in touch with as much as I wanted to, and his family were killed in a terrible plane crash. It crushed me because this kid was one of those people who gave me hope that there were truly good people. This book is about love and loss and grief and moving on. I’ve found that some books follow similar formats but this is different. The narrator is the young girl who dies in the first sentence. You know who the killer is in the first chapter. The book isn’t about the girl it’s about her looking on to her family as they fall apart, heal, and get put back together. The symbols are great I would recommend reading this book with a guide to get a better understanding of the novel. We’ve all had times in our lives when we feel broken, like things are so bad they can’t possibly get worse. Reading about this family grieving really helped me grieve the loss of my friend and learn how to move on without forgetting them. Finally, above all, this book is the best written book I’ve ever read, along with Frankenstein. I’m very picky when it comes to books, but not only was this a great story but the way Seabold writes is like poetry. It’s a fast read and something I think everyone needs to read.

Great. Love this book!

Love this book. It is both sad and touching.

One of my favorite books!!

Heart breaking and a page turner, I’ve reread this multiple times for a few years. I still can’t shake the real ness of the book. SKIP THE MOVIE, it’s garbage

Boring

Not a fan of this book, the storyline drags and the ending was too abrupt and dissapointing

Beautiful and heartbreaking.

Intense

I hear everywhere, that the beginning of this book is the best but honeslty, I think it's so boring. The whole first 15 chapters seemed as if the book was going no where. But....I stiked to it and it got sooooo much better. It's a very intense book and opens up a lot of doors. Ironicly, one of my schoolmates died while I was finishing this book. It really eases my mind about where she is now. I definatly recommend this book to those who have lost someone in there life. (It's not religious at all).

WOW!!!!

I don't even know where to begin with this book. A friend of mine had been telling me about forever, so I borrowed it from her. Wow! I have never felt so connected to characters in a book. The author makes you feel like you have known these people your whole life. I can't even put into words the emotions you go through reading this book. I reccomend it to everyone now. It was a fast read which was the one thing that disappointed me the most. I actually bought my own copy of this book because its one I will read over and over again.

Amazing Book

I picked up a copy of this book because a lot of people said it was a good read. When I first started it I didn't want to finish it. I thought the whole concept of it being told from heaven was kind of odd and the start of the book made me cry. I pushed on though and soon I couldn't put the book down, I read it in 2 days. It made me look at things in a whole new light and I would suggest this book to anyone!

Hermosa historia

Les confieso que la compre porque me intrigo el resumen que lei pero cuando la recibi y comence a leerla como se dice en ingles "I fell in love with it". La historia es muy conmovedora pero vale la pena leerla siempre y cuando tengas una caja de tissue al lado o te aguantes las ganas de llorar con la historia de esta nina. Ojala no haya un cielo para que asi los muertos no sufran mas viendo lo que hacemos aqui en la tierra los que quedamos.

Very Good!

I thought this was one of the best books that I have ever read! I really enjoyed this book because it was so different. I never put this book down. I would read it again and again. This book is amazing and touching.
