Bookclub-In-A-Box Discusses the Novel the Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

Bookclub-In-A-Box Discusses the Novel the Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold Cover

 

Staff Pick

By the time The Lovely Bones landed on bookstore shelves it had become the most highly anticipated book of the season. Then came the astonishingly enthusiastic critical response. Within two months, a million copies were in print. Still, readers encountering a simple plot summary might be tempted to turn away. Newspapers offer enough tragedy these days; do we really have time and energy for dark, tragic fiction? Consider those apprehensions dismissed: Sebold's debut fiction is an unflinching, graceful gift of a novel, an invigorating, expansive work of storytelling that should not work, but magically does.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While many novels explore the human experience in all its complexity, all Bookclub-in-a-Box discussion guides help to interpret the authors' approach to that human experience. The Bookclub-in-a-Box guide to Alice Sebold's novel, The Lovely Bones is no exception. In Sebold's Story, fourteen-year-old Susie Salmon is murdered. Many readers might stop reading right there, but that would mean missing Sebold's unique perspective on life and death, and not getting to know her unusual narrator, Susie, who tells the story from heaven.
