Audiobook Giveaway: The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold (Ends 11/18) CLOSED

Wednesday, November 04, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Today, I have the pleasure to host a giveaway for a fascinating book - The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. The audiobook version is read by the author herself. In about a month from now, a movie based on this book is scheduled for release. Peter Jackson directs, and some of my favorite actors are starring: Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and Saoirse Ronan (the only name that is unfamiliar to me). I plan to read The Lovely Bones before I watch the movie, and you should, too!

Book Description
Once in a generation a novel comes along that taps a vein of universal human experience, resonating with readers of all ages. The Lovely Bones is such a book - a #1 bestseller celebrated at once for its artistry, for its luminous clarity of emotion, and for its astonishing power to lay claim to the hearts of millions of readers around the world. Now in an audiobook edition read by the author, with movie tie-in art.

"My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973."

So begins the story of Susie Salmon, who is adjusting to her new home in heaven, a place that is not at all what she expected, even as she is watching life on earth continue without her -- her friends trading rumors about her disappearance, her killer trying to cover his tracks, her grief-stricken family unraveling. Out of unspeakable tragedy and loss, The Lovely Bones succeeds, miraculously, in building a tale filled with hope, humor, suspense, even joy.

    Cursed to Death by L. A. Banks. It is one of her Crimson Moon novels
    and it was a great page turner.
