Book Review: the Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Lovely BonesThe Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was told by numerous friends to read this book, that it was so good, etc. I will say right off it is very well written. It flows, it engages the reader. As a parent I had an extremely hard time reading this book. The content was 'difficult'; every parents nightmare (therefore the 2 stars). The almost ghost-like way of the telling made it too real. I forced myself to finish it but did not enjoy it. I know many people have no problem reading this kind of story, but I don't do it willingly. Alice Sebold is a wonderful writer. The fact that I felt this one too deeply speaks to her prowess.
