Book review: The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

The Lovely BonesThe Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I saw the film before I read the book, so in terms of my imagination I didn't have to use it. Despite this, I thought the story was really good, I kept reading chapter after chapter. I didn't want to put it down. The feeling you have towards the characters is great, Alice Sebold writes them really well. Although there's no story in the normal sense, the events flow really well. The only reason I haven't given it five stars is because I didn't entirely believe the reaction of the children when their mother left, or that their mother would leave in such circumstances.
