Review: The Lovely Bones | Alice Sebold

I’d seen this book around before but had never picked it up or knew what it was about until it was recommended to me by a friend.


The Lovely Bones is the story of a fourteen year old girl who was brutally murdered in 1973. What is different about this book is that the narrator is the little girl and the book begins with her murder and she takes you on a journey with her in the years following her death. She tells us about ‘her heaven’ and she watches her family members deal with her death and try to keep living themselves.

This was a very touching and moving book and so different from anything I’ve read before.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

My rating = *****

That’s my four bucks!
