I’m not sure why it took me twice picking up this book before I could finish it; must have been the place I was in - but I enjoyed it very much the second time around. A well-paced, interesting perspective from a girl in heaven seeing how her family copes after her murder.

The previous paragraph was my review left on Goodreads - what a teaser. This is a wonderful book, I heard it became a great movie as well (but I’m always a fan of the book over the movie).

I appreciated how Ms. Sebold intertwined the present-day realism of the story with the heavenly thoughts of the victim; it pulls the reader in and leaves them wanting more.

A really, really good book. ( )

The Lovely Bones is a remarkable and gently moving feat of POI sustained by an omniscience that, at the beginning, I suspected would run its course and fall flat – but it didn't. We not only watch a murderer at work but also see the consequences of the crime on family, friends and community.
These were the lovely bones that had grown round my absence: the connections – sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent – that happened after I was gone. (p. 320)

It's a story where love and presence are the binding forces in a world where absence is manifestly present. Where people and ordinary things, even suburban lives, can vanish in literal or metaphorical sinkholes. Where relationships matter
Her journal was her most important relationship. It held everything. (p.252)

The more I reflect on this book, the more intricately constructed it becomes. Some writers don’t know how to end a book Alice Sebold does: powerful yet understated. A masterpiece! ( )

Narrated by a very intelligent fourteen-year-old, Susie Salmon, this story opens with her violent death in a cornfield at the hands of a quietly deranged man, George Harvey. She narrates the story from heaven, a place that continually changes as she matures and watches her family's struggles and accomplishments on earth. Reeling from the grisly crime and not having closure to their daughter's death, Susie's parents have a difficult time coming to terms with this situation, and as a result, their marriage and relationships with their other two children suffer.
This story is compassionately told, and the reader quickly feels close to Susie and her family. All of the characters in this small town are interesting and add their own flavor to this intriguing story. Although there's a sad undertone throughout, there are also hints of humor, hope, and love. At times, this was a difficult book to stomach, because of the gruesome nature of George Harvey's life. But overall, it was an excellent book with memorable characters and a masterful plot. It's a quick, mesmerizing read, that leaves you wanting to learn more about Susie's life in her heaven--a mysterious and very interesting place. I'd recommend this book for its unique perspective and its honest look at the effect death has on the people a deceased person leaves behind on earth. ( )

Sebold's compelling and sometimes poetic prose style and unsparing vision transform Susie's tragedy into an ultimately rewarding novel.

Although some sections tend toward melodrama... other passages are dreamy and lyrical. Most striking is Sebold's mastery of a teenager's voice, from such small details as Susie's Strawberry-Banana Kissing Potion to her completely believable thought processes.
 
An extraordinary, almost-successful debut that treats sensational material with literary grace, narrated from heaven by the victim of a serial killer and pedophile.
adicionado por bell7 | editarKirkus Reviews (Aug 1, 2002)
 
Don't start "Lovely Bones" unless you can finish it. The book begins with more horror than you could imagine, but closes with more beauty than you could hope for.
 
Sebold takes an enormous risk in her wonderfully strange début novel: her narrator, Susie Salmon, is dead—murdered at the age of fourteen by a disturbed neighbor—and speaks from the vantage of Heaven. Such is the author's skill that from the first page this premise seems utterly believable... If in the end she reaches too far, the book remains a stunning achievement.

These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections—sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent—that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it. The events my death brought were primarily that the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future. The price of what I came to see as this miraculous lifeless body had been my life.
