The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold There was so much to like about this book, but more to dislike. Reading about child rape and murder is not my cup of tea. It's told in first person, and in very short sections of present and past and thoughts. The beginning hooked me, but from page 50 or so until 200-something I was ready to give up. I'm glad I persisted, because it did get better after that. Then lost it again at the end by the author seemingly trying to "clean up" and be done.

Glad I can say I read it, but wouldn't re-read, and would be cautious about recommending.
