A film adaptation of the novel, directed by Peter Jackson, was released in 2010. Susie Salmon was fourteen years old when she was murdered by a man from her neighbourhood. Now in heaven, she can have whatever she wishes for -- except the one thing she wants most: to be back with the people she loved on earth. Susie watches from above as her 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. In time, Susie will realise that even in death, life is not quite out of reach ...In 2012 Picador celebrated its 40th anniversary.

I enjoyed the book but it was a bit slow in places... Maybe it's one of those tomes that requires reading twice to appreciate it fully?
Ironically, the film was shown on TV a few days after I'd read the book... and I was very glad I'd read the book first as I thought the film was rubbish.
