Film Review The Lovely Bones

If you’re one of the brave parental souls who could get through the book and the movie, then this is definitely a keeper. Down to only £5.99 at HMV including delivery, the Lovely Bones is a rich, heartbreaking and dramatic story that will grip you from the start.

I have to confess that when I was first given the book I managed the first chapter and then had to put it down. I couldn’t bring myself to read any further as the thought of that happening to my daughter was too vivid and horrifying for words.

I did eventually read it to completion, it was gripping and wonderfully poignant, but I think I went through several boxes of tissues in the process. The movie stays as true to the book as is possible with the time limit but, for me, didn’t quite do it justice.

Although many people disagree with me as the reviews have all been sterling. It is as poignant and heartbreaking as the books so please, bring tissues. It is also a lovely stocking filler for Christmas.
