Just a little too lovely for me to gnaw on its bones

AdvantagesWell paced. Characters well drawn. Concise descriptive writing.

DisadvantagesTies up a little too nicely. Not brave enough.

"== The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold == I must admit that I don’t usually like to read a book after I have seen the film that resulted from it. Ninety per cent of the time the books are usually better so it usually works out Ok. I was a bit wary on reading this one however, as I had seen and enjoyed the movie and had an inkling that the film script had stuck pretty much to the novels content, which would leave me reading a book that I knew every ..."

COMFORT IN GRIEF

AdvantagesUnique premise, excellent narration

DisadvantagesMawkishly over-sentimental, unrealistic and a bit soppy

"Given the glut of reviews on ‘The Lovely Bones’, it seems that this is a very popular novel. Indeed, this book is one of the biggest selling books of the past twenty years on both sides of the Atlantic. It has made Alice Sebold into one of the most prominent modern American writers and has been featured on many different talk shows, arts programmes and critical review shows. Most famously, the book was the winner of the Richard & Judy book club award ..." Read review

The Lovely Book

AdvantagesA beautifully-written, elegantly constructed book.

DisadvantagesSentimental in places.

"...except she cannot return to the people she loved on earth. She can only watch their grief. When I saw this book on the library shelf I wasn’t certain that I wanted to read it. I thought that the subject would be depressing and I try not to take my pleasures so sadly. I knew too that the story was narrated from heaven. If the book had a religious theme it would be back in the library before it had chance to grow warm in my hands. The book went home ..." Read review

My mother liked his flower beds....

AdvantagesAn amazing book which evokes so much emotion in the reader.

DisadvantagesMay be a little disturbing for some readers in the beginning.

"The Lovely Bones: Alice Sebold == Introduction == I saw a trailer on TV a couple of weeks ago for the film which is based on this book, and when my mum told me it was a brilliant book, I couldn’t help myself from going online and buying it from Amazon. I had never heard of it before even though it’s first publishing was in 2002. As soon as the book hit my front door mat, I opened it up and started to read it. On Amazon the book was classified ..."

Delicately Written & Inspiring

Advantagesbeautifully written, addictive

Disadvantages-

"With it getting towards the summer, I am always on the look out for a new book to read and almost always I will opt for something in the chick lit genre. However, I have heard so many good things about this book the lovely bones which is why I have always been intrigued to find out more. So many people have talked about it but yet I never really had any idea as to what it was about. It wasn't until my mother finished reading it and handed me her copy ..." Read review
