The Lovely Bones...
I started reading this book yesterday, put it down
for a bit, but ended up reading to 6:30 this morning
because I had to finish it. Captivating. Gripping.
The main character is 14 year old Susie Salmon who
was raped and murdered. The story is told in her voice
after she arrives in "her heaven".
I didn't know it was made into a movie until I looked
for a link at Amazon. The movie reviews there sound
disappointing but I'm willing to take a chance on it.
I will, absolutely, be reading the other books written
by Ms Sebold (Lucky, a memoir, and The Almost Moon,
wherein she kills her mother).

I have about fifty pages to finish The Hobbit. ho-hum.
The Trilogies are sitting close by but the chances are
very good that they'll be getting dusty.
The next two books to be read will be A Town Like Alice (1950)
and On the Beach (1957) by Nevil Shute.
You can see my reading tastes are somewhat varied.
Let me know in comments what you might recommend.
