Saturday Movie Review: To Rent or Not to Rent

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
was a great book. I highly recommend adding it to your reading list if you haven't had the chance to read it yet.

I was very excited to find out this book was made into a movie.

The book and movie are about Susie Salmon, who is 14 years old when she is murdered. Susie is telling the story about her life. Susie's father is Mark Wahlberg and he is determined to find his daughter's murderer. He has a hard time coping with Susie's loss. Susie's sister starts to suspect their neighbor Mr. Harvey had a hand in her sister's disappearance. Throughout the movie Susie is dealing with being stuck in the middle of heaven and earth. She watches as her family and friends try to move on with their lives. Susan Sarandon is also in this film and plays the chain smoking drunk grandmother that steps in to help the Salmon family deal with life after the lose of Susie. In heaven Susie sees the other girls Harvey has murdered and finally comes to terms with her own death. The "lovely bones" from the title are the relationships that form in the wake of Susie’s murder.

The movie is full of crazy imagery of the afterlife. The movie was good, but the book was much better. Enjoy!
