The Lovely Bones Film

By Alice Sebold
 
If you haven't read, The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold then you don't know what you are missing.

The story is set in 1973 about a girl Susie who is murdered by her neighbour who so happens to be a serial killer. (Charming, I know)  She narrates the story from heaven, watching her killer, her family and friends as he attempts to kill again and they attempt to recover from losing Susie.
When I found out that the film maker Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) was interested in making the book into a film and actually wrote the script I couldn't believe it! Fast forward December 2009 and the trailer, starring Mark Walhberg and Racel Weisz, has been released.

 It is, without a doubt, one of my favourite books. It touches on so many issues, relationships, friendships, the nuclear family, religion, death, grief and murder.  What I like most about the plot is the way it was written as the style is unusual and unconventional for most novels.  And although the main story is of a murdered girl, the novel is actually a lot more postive then it initially seems. I will not reveal any more of the story and let you read it for yourself!

I can not WAIT to see the film, I am beyond excited YAY!
Enjoy the trailer whilst its still available on youtube!
