Plot:

In the year 1973, a 14-year-old girl whose name is Susie Salmon is raped, murdered, and dismembered by a 'friendly' neighbor. She is allowed to spend the next few years watching from a personalized heaven as her family and friends deal with their grief.

Plot Summary:

Spoiler:
 

This is by far, my favourite book of all time. The plot is amazing, even though it sounds gross and perverce. Alice Sebold is an amazingly descriptive writer, she is able to describe so much with so little. The characters are amazingly built up, and you easily get emotionly attached to them.

10/10

That sounds really cool.
I'll check it out once I'm finished reading the Anita Blake series.

i really did enjoy this book, i found a bit hard to get into though! And it was interesting as well. i love the different perceptions and ehr sister was my fave character.
It left me feeling a bit strange after reading it though. its hard to describe.

I think it is the storyline that put a lot of people off the book.. though once read, you will regret that you didn't read it sooner :]
