This book really was extremely hard for me to read. I didn't even finish it. It was just very confusing the jumping back and fourth and it drove me nuts. I'm hoping I'm not offending anyone with my rating, but this is just my sole opinion on the book and movie.

The Movie I did finish and now I see why i didn't even finish the book. I barely wanted to finish the movie. I think the colors and some of the acting was good. I'm a big fan of Mark Walberg. So yes I don't recommend either the Book or Movie, it just wasn't my cup of tea.


When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. This was before milk carton photos and public service announcements, she tells us; back in 1973, when Susie mysteriously disappeared, people still believed these things didn't happen. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place she finds herself. It looks a lot like her school playground, with the good kind of swing sets. With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief, her father embarks on a search for the killer, her sister undertakes a feat of amazing daring, her little brother builds a fort in her honor and begin the difficult process of healing. In the hands of a brilliant novelist, this story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching story about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.
