Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Once in a generation a novel comes along that taps a vein of universal human experience, resonating with readers of all ages. The Lovely Bones is such a book — a phenomenal #1 bestseller celebrated at once for its narrative artistry, its luminous clarity of emotion, and its astonishing power to lay claim to the hearts of millions of readers around the world.

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

Review:

"A stunning achievement." New Yorker

Review:

"Deeply affecting....A keenly observed portrait of familial love and how it endures and changes over time." New York Times

Review:

"A triumphant novel....It's a knockout." Time

Review:

"Destined to become a classic in the vein of To Kill a Mockingbird.... I loved it." Anna Quindlen

Review:

"A novel that is painfully fine and accomplished." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"The Lovely Bones seems to be saying there are more important things in life on earth than retribution. Like forgiveness, like love." Chicago Tribune

Synopsis:

Sebold's mesmerizing and luminous first novel — a #1 national bestseller — builds a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, and even joy, following an unspeakable tragedy.
