    E–pub Free The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold After hearing all the hype about this book I couldn't wait to read it and discover how amazing it is for myself I was greatly disappointedHow has this book become such a worldwide success? It's slow boring and there is no real connection with any of the characters I found myself disliking everyone in the bookThe overall idea could have been very good even though it isn't exactly original but I just thought the author didn't make the most

The Lovely Bones Characters Ê 109 E compreende ue é o centro das atenções os colegas comentam os rus sobre o seu desaparecimento a família ainda acredita ue ela poderá ser encontrada o assassino tenta esconder as pistas do seu crim. This book has single handedly shown me that I spend too much time skimming and not enough time really reading and thinking about the books I have been reading I have two kids and so I m busy and I often find myself reading when I am stealing time or tired But that is not even an excuse for this book When i read the book I thought it was pretty good Not great but not bad I liked the concept and the fact that the girl was the narrator I like a murder mystery so I liked the suspense of waiting to see if the guy would get caught etc So when all was said and done and I finished the book I thought yeah okay Not bad but not great Then I went online here and read the other reviews particularly one by TheDane and I went HEY That s right I mean the writing alone is something I should have picked up one had I really been paying attention Pupils pulsing like olives Buttering toast with tears Umm I really must have been distracted or skimming like crazy because that is ridiculous And the real meaning of the final scene went WAY over my head which I am somewhat ashamed to admit When I read it I really was like yeah yeah oh that s sweet she got one night with her boyfriend which she had been cheated of and all But when you slow down and really think of this the enormity of that is overwhelming A young girl who dies after being RAPED A girl who s first sexual experience was RAPE by an older man A girl who actually barely knew this boy in her life This girl can only let go of life after having sex With that boy That she really didn t know that well That alone is enough to send of some big alarms But then you add that she was allowed to go back to earth to have sex Not see her family not comfort her father and brother and sister Not point out the killer Nope heaven lets her go back then of all times not earlier when she wanted it or could have done both for justice and her family So the admission to heaven is teen sex Really The way to overcome deep grief and gain acceptance and peace is again teen sex Wow I missed out as a teen because that was NOT my experience Okay now louder warning bells should have been going off But the final issue she takes over the body of a friend Without the girl s knowledge or permission The friend who is a lesbian And uses her body to have sex with a boy Just taking over her body is a violation Taking over her body and using that time to have sex is another violation And to have sex with a boy knowing that is the antithesis of everything this friend would have wanted or agreed to is yet another violation What the hell And none of that gets brought up or mentioned No it is a feel good ending yeah I mean I have some pretty close friends some I have known for at least triple the time these two girls have known each other and if I somehow managed to just steal their bodies and have sex with a woman Well it would be good for me that I was already dead That is a betrayal in the worst sense on so many levels it is shocking And what of the possible conseuences Pregnancy STDs Never mind the lesser conseuences of emotional damage damage to their friendship the trust issues etc etc etc After thinking about it and I was truly embarrassed to have not seen these dark and disturbing connotations made all the worse for the fact that the author serves this up as the feel good ending not noticing the irony at all of having the main character who was raped and violated in turn rape and violate a friend while denouncing the first act as a heinous crime and lauding the second act as happy ending So in short I have learned my lesson and I am now making of an effort to truly read and then think about what I am reading

The Lovely Bones Characters Ê 109 Susie Salmon tem o olhar vivo e irreuieto dos seus catorze anos Observa o desenrolar da vida os colegas da escola a família o lento passar dos meses e das estações Está tudo muito calmo tudo parece. One book two rapes How s that for a bargain The book only advertises one YuckThe book in uestion is Alice Sebold s The Lovely Bones I m not giving anything away by saying it s a book about a girl the narrator who was murdered That s revealed in the book s second sentence It s also not a big deal to let you know she was raped and murdered by a neighbour George Harvey That all is related pretty early on What isn t revealed until maybe the last fifty pages is that the girl herself Susie Salmon becomes a rapistIdeologically I m not certain which one is worse I could be persuadedBut the way the book presents the two incidents is markedly different One is revealed in low lights and has a horror edge to it It s seen unilaterally as an evil wicked deed The other is the book s highlight the moment at which the author breathes a sigh of relief and says that everything else made right I suppose it makes sense the narrator probably wouldn t see her actions for what they were But in the end both George and Susie deal with their childhood victimizations in that manner typical to the criminal genre these daysBoth George and Susie had horrible things happen in their formative years that leave long lasting scars The only difference is that George Harvey lived and Susie Salmon died Not that it makes much difference Susie is as alive a character as George for the purposes of the story They both want what they want and care little for the well being of the women who get in their way The difference is that George Harvey is portrayed as the villain he is while little Susie Salmon is treated as a heroThose who have read the book may not have even noticed Susie s complete abandonment of moral sense or care for the woman she violates After all she doesn t exactly couch things in those terms So here it is laid out for youWhen Susie was alive there was a boy who liked her Ray In the years after her death Ray grows up to be in the narrator s view an attractive young man She watches him and loves him Somehow events conspire to allow Susie to possess the body of Ruth a friend of Ray s Susie uses the opportunity to seduce Ray and they make love several times in the course of a few hours And then Susie has to go back to heaven Leaving Ruth a victim of Susie s power over her bodyImagine that you re Ruth You wake up Naked Probably a little tender Used In the back of some bike shop With a man in the shower That s what I call horror Not only was she not conscious or aware for any of the immediately preceding events but the guy who s been really her only friend in the world is now naked and telling her that he screwed her brains out while she was unconscious And even if he doesn t tell her that there s a very short rail of evidence and it all points to that conclusion And now She could be pregnant She could be diseasedYep The crowning act of love on the part of the tale s heroine is little than a petty rapacious act of power over the helpless woman who got in her way Good job Susie Salmon You and George Harvey should get along nicelychokengtitiktitikchokengs even though I called it a spoiler I think that Alice Sebold spoiled the book Not me

The Lovely Bones Characters Ê 109 Muito acolhedor Um único pormenor desmente tanta placidez é ue de facto Susie já morreu Estranhamente o céu parece se muito com o recreio da escola nem seuer faltam os baloiços A pouco e pouco Susi. Haaaaaated it I am one of those OCD literary nerds who takes on a war bunker mentality with books that I ve started and dislike I will see this through to the end For The Lovely Bones I made an exceptionSomewhere sometime someone told Sebold she could write That person should be made to apologize to me in person and to all other poor souls who were duped into buying this shlock The literary press also needs to break out the cattails for a serious bout of flogging Lev Grossman of Time Magazine is at the top of my flogging docket he called this book a beautiful sensitive melancholy novel and repeated that claim a year later in a review for a book called The Dogs of Babel a book just as terrible as The Lovely Bones I can only assume that Mr Grossman confined his reading to the zeros on the check accompanying the publisher s blurb or else has some sort of vitamin deficiency that causes his brain to process ham handed tripe as beautiful artIt was Mr Grossman s review along with the alluring premise of the novel a young girl posthumously tries to make sense of the events that led to her death that led me to order The Lovely Bones and The Dogs of Babel which at the time were only available in hardcover Financial reasons made this an extremely uncommon practice for me and my experience reading both of those novels ensured that I would never do so againTo further illustrate how absolutely wretched this novel is I m going to provide a paragraph of background The substance of the novel will be criticized in the subseuent body of this reviewDuring the summer of 2003 I was occupying space as an intern at a company that accepted me at the last minute and had nothing for me to do The company was white collar and behemoth in office space HR sent me to an deserted floor to file documents that took up at most 2 hours of my 8 hour day Even in this vacuum of monotony I could not finish this book I chose to watch paint chip away and pick up dust bunnies with recycled paper I didn t have a broom rather than finish this bookSo with that said I suppose I should actually mention something specific about the book I hated My caveat here is that I am unwilling to punish myself by picking through a copy of the book for textual examples I m going by memory and online synopses aloneThe narrator and victim is Susie Salmon Let me stop there SUSIE SALMON That really should have clued me in but I was too eager to see how the author would represent the afterlife to catch a glimpse of this beautiful pain of looking a life that goes on without youUnfortunately Sebold managed to bleach out anything remotely interesting out of the plot in spectacular fashion Heaven is a school you see not that Susie spends much time there or learns anything Her rapist and murderer is a creepy loser while somehow being the dullest of all of Sebold s numerous dull characters The reason for his murderous tendencies could be guessed by anyone who s ever even heard of a pop psychology bookYou d think her family would at least be interesting in grief but Sebold reduces them to one note drones Everything in The Lovely Bones is a gimmick played cheaply for sentiment and with no other reward I d compare to a Hallmark movie but Hallmark movies do not adopt the pretension that Sebold belabors with terrible pseudo post modernist metaphors All of this would be bad enough but what made me throw this book aside with great force is the offensive and unjustifiable resolution to Susie s laments that she did not get to live This unfairness although poorly developed was at least a cause of sympathy until Susie decides to forcibly correct it at the expense of others In the hands of someone else this last turn could ve been bleak insight into motivations of the cycle of victimization but Sebold conveys not one iota of ambivalenceMuch of my hatred of this novel results from its inexplicable popularity and commendation from people who have a responsibility to promote reading I shudder to think who else picked up this novel convinced it was the best that the contemporary literary world had to offer It is not my intention to slam those who enjoyed this book If you did I am glad to hear it I love books and I want others to love books I simply fear that someone who is tempted out of a long vacation from reading might pick up a novel like this and give up the cause for lost
