Publisher Description

"My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973."

So begins the story of Susie Salmon, who is adjusting to her new home in heaven, a place that is not at all what she expected, even as she is watching life on earth continue without her -- her friends trading rumors about her disappearance, her killer trying to cover his tracks, her grief-stricken family unraveling. Out of unspeakable tragedy and loss, The Lovely Bones succeeds, miraculously, in building a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, even joy.

The lovely bones

An interesting story, how after a girl is murdered, she is still able to live in the peoples hearts that she left behind.
The ending was alittle weak, would of loved seeing the killer meet her father.

The Lovely Bones

This book was good. A very interesting perspective on the story telling which gave the whole book great appeal. I skipped over much of the lengthy description as the story line got somewhat lost otherwise and I found myself having to go back to pick up on the events that were going on; however if you don't put the book down it would flow more easily. A reassuring take on death.
