9th On My Wishlist
September 3, 2010 § 4 Comments
The experience reading a rare book such as The Time Traveler’s Wife really fantastic! And I find out that there’s yet another rare book to be read, The Lovely Bones. Reading it’s synopsis make me think, I have to get this book and treasure it, because it’s truly a fascinating story. I never heard about the author, Alice Sebold. Maybe by reading The Lovely Bones, I’ll get the chance to know her (I mean how’s her writing style is). If The Lovely Bones can give the similar impact as The Time Traveler’s Wife, I’ll put them side by side on my shelf because The Time Traveler’s Wife is by far my most favorite book! In fact, I’ll be reading it for the third time this holidays!!
The Lovely Bones
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. It looks a lot like her school playground, with the good kind of swing sets. With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief, her father embarks on a search for the killer, her sister undertakes a feat of amazing daring, her little brother builds a fort in her honor and begin the difficult process of healing. In the hands of a brilliant novelist, this story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching story about family, memory, love, Heaven, and living.
Well, lets hope that I’ll get this book soon. Have a nice day guys! I’ll be enjoying my holidays of course! Ciao..
