This is the thread to discuss the August book of the month, The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
. Please do not read this thread until you have read the book because this thread will contain spoilers
What do you think of the book? Would you recommend it to others? Which characters are your favorite?
I like the book for the fact that it is unique. I have never read a book that is narrated by a dead person in heaven who is mostly narrating events on Earth as she observes them from heaven. I think it's very interesting and original. What do you think?
Some of the parts of the book are very gruesome, like when she describes her murder in detail. It's even more disturbing considering the narrator is a school-aged girl.
Do you have any favorite quotes or short passages from the book that you would like to post? If so, please do.
