Director Peter Jackson: "I found [The Lovely Bones] to be curiously optimistic...I felt inspired by Susie's struggle to come to terms with her own death. In the face of overwhelming grief, she finds hope." [USAToday]
I read this book a few years ago, and I wasn't particularly affected by it. I thought it was just okay. Sad story, decent writing, but overall...just okay.
Anybody else have the same reaction? (Seems like everyone else was really moved by it, and now I'm wondering why I wasn't!)
