The Lovely Bones

Winner of The National Book Awards Richard and Judy Best Read of the Year 2004, and The Specsavers Platinum Bestseller Award 2017

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

In heaven, Susie Salmon can have whatever she wishes for - except what she most wants, which is to be back with the people she loved on earth. In the wake of her murder, Susie watches as her happy suburban family is torn apart by grief; as her friends grow up, fall in love, and do all the things she never had the chance to do herself. But as Susie will come to realize, even in death, life is not quite out of reach . . .

A luminous, astonishing novel about life and death, memory and forgetting, and finding light in the darkest places, The Lovely Bones became an instant classic when it was first published in 2002. There are now over ten million copies in print.

'Compulsive enough to read in a single sitting, brilliantly intelligent, elegantly constructed and ultimately intriguing' The Times

'Takes the stuff of terrible tragedy and transforms it into something hopeful and redemptive' Daily Mail

Rezension
Moving and compelling . . . It will put an imperceptible but stealthily insistent hold on you. I sat down in the morning to read the first couple of pages; five hours later, I was still there, book in hand, transfixed Maggie O'Farrell Sunday Telegraph

I first read this book somewhere around 2013 when the movie came out. I was around 13 and my sister watched the movie together with me since she wanted me to know. I learned a lot about the closeness of horror and darkness and it did a great job of making me more alert to my surroundings. When I was 15 or 16 I finally bought and read the book and I reread it a couple of times over the years. This is one of the best books I know and it still does a great job of shocking my breath away and coaxing the tears out of my eyes and soul. I definitely recommend this to anyone that can handle the emotional tax it takes.
