    When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. This was before milk carton photos and public service announcements, she tells us; back in 1973, when Susie mysteriously disappeared, people still believed these things didn't happen. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place she finds herself.

Lovely even with bones

by MISS S on Aug 12, 2011

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. The book seller was great! Great price, well packaged and arrived speedily :-)

Fascinating and very different - well worth a read

I hope the movie is better than the book. From what I read, I would not be inspired to watch it.

Awesome!!! Excellent!!! One of the best books I have read so far. Excellent vocabulary. Emotional and thought-provoking. I couldn't put it down, then I didn't want it to end.
