I had such a large book collection at one point and this one was defiantly part of it. I purchased this as a recommendation but also loved the cover color and design. Definitely eye catching. This story is so good and so sad. The author definitely is one for emotion novels. Highly reco.

This is such a aggressive book. It's amazing and goes into way more detail than the movie. But you really have to keep up to understand the plot it's a difficult book to understand but when you understand it the book is amazing

This is a great book for adults and young adults alike. The main characters narration keeps you on your toes as she takes you through the events leading up to her death to solve the mystery of what happened. Once you finish the book, the movie is amazingly adapted (minus a few details) which was an awesome plus!

This book is very intense. It keeps you on your toes the entire time. It's an excellent story line although also very emotional. It's about a young girl you disappears and her families (especially her fathers) relentless effort to find her. It's a great book and a great movie! Definitely recommend both!

The Lovely Bones is a beautifully tragic read. It was written exceptionally well and captured your attention from the first moment. It was heartbreaking and full of love at the very same moment. It was definitely better than the movie. If you haven't read this book, you need to.

The lovely bones is a wonderful novel. I have read it many times over. It draws the reader in. The sadness and heartbreak of the victim is palpable. You want to reach through the pages and help.

Alice Sebold is such a great author. The Lovely Bones was one of the first mystery novels I read when I was younger. I love her writing style and the imagery she builds in this book.

I love this book. I'm actually reading it again now! I got the movie at a going out of business sale and immediately after watching the movie I searched for the book. I got the book and could not put it down. I read it at the gym, on the way to work... it's just an incredible book. You're hooked before the first chapter even ends.

I recently found her book Lucky at Habitat for Humanity's Restore for 10 cents and KNEW I had to get it because I loved this book so much. I hope to read it soon.

This is a must read for anyone who loves mystery or drama!

Holy Moly this is an amazing book. It's been a few years since I've read it but it's still one of my favorites. It's definitely dark, and hard to get through some parts because of the intense emotions it conveys, but completely worth the tears in the end. This book follows a young girl who has been murdered, as her spirit comes back and tries to help bring her killer to justice. This book is insanely creative and well written, and I would recommend to everyone. Definitely a must read.
