The characters in the book were excellent. the author made them very believable and realistic. My favorite character was Lindsey, Susie’s younger sister. If one of my family members died I think I would be some what like her. I would be strong and not show emotions to others, it would be hard, but I would do something like that. The youngest sibling, Buckley, was also a well written character. he made the best of every situation, even Susie’s death.
While reading The Lovely Bones My interest struck throughout the whole novel. During this story I never became bored and I was always on the edge of my seat. Alice Sebold put random facts about the characters into the story, and some of them just made my jaw drop. I would not change anything about this book, it was amazing! I loved the scenes the author created, I found it a very touching book.
In the pages of this book I learned some valuable lessons. Always talk with someone about your feelings, always! Keeping stuff locked up is not good for your sanity. Get to know your neighbors on a personal level before trusting them, or else don’t go in a hole with them. Never talk to strangers, its silly but it can lead to dangerous things. I had fun reading this book and I would like to read more of Sebolds novels. I would recommend this book to all my friends, and share the amazing story with everyone. The Lovely Bones is full of laughs, suspense, and makes you ponder on the characters.
