The Lovely Bones is different from most other books
Recently I read pages 5-18 in The Lonely Bones, by Alice Sebold,and I really like it because this a different book. The story is different from most other books.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: " When I first entered heaven I thought everyone saw what I saw." I think this is important because after she died and went to heaven she got a different then then she accepted heaven to be.
Another line that I liked was: "Heaven wasn't perfect." This stood out for me because heaven is suppose to be the best place but she was bored there because she wanted to live her life on earth. But she couldn't do that all she could do was to watch her family in pain and wish for Mr.Harvey to die.
This section of The Lonely Bones reminds me of a movie. In "Speak" the girl gets raped by a high school senior but does not die. But she suffers her sophomore year of high school. Later when the school year was over teh guy gets caught when he tries to rape her again.
What's probably going to happen next is that slowly her family will find out what had happened to her and the elbow they found will be hers.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because the starte was really good. Although it was a sad beginning it was really interesting and the story just took of.
