The Lovely Bones

I read the book twice - the first time I hated it and the second time it grew on me. I was looking forward to seeing the movie, but felt some trepidation after hearing the test audience complain it was gory enough (I've seen Bad Taste - I was expecting the worst, especially of the murder.) I was however, very relieved. The depiction of Susie's heaven was amazingly done, and following the family as they cope (or not) with the murder was very intense. I recommend the movie, although I would read the book as well to complete the full picture.
