The Lovely Bones
I read the book years ago, it was so interesting. I want to see the movie and was wondering if anyone else has read the book and seen the movie.

If so, how do you feel they ( the screenwriters) did to translate the book to movie?

Haven't seen it or read it, but it looks interesting!

I never read the book but I didnt think the movie was good at all. The ending was really bad. The rest of the movie was ok. But the end was just, wierd, stupid, and creepy. Haha(:

Yes, this is my concern about seeing the movie. So many times the movie is so flat compared to the book.

In the advertisements, I get a sense that revenge on the fathers part is a dominant thread. As you know, that never really entered into the picture because of the circumstances (don't want to say too much and ruin a great read for any one out there).

I think my daughter and I will be going tomorrow night. I'll let you know whether you should just pass on it and keep the book instead. :wink:

Well, just saw the movie tonight. They did a fairly good job but it is not the quality of the book. I'll have to reread the book, been too many years since I have, and then I can better compare. Going strictly on memory (ya, that's never good :wink: ). If you're not familiar with the book, then the movie should be fine.

Felt they selected very well for Mr Harvey, and also for Susie.

Enjoyed the popcorn and lemonade very much!

I watched the movie and enjoyed it. The book is next on my list to read!

Lucara you will not be disappointed! Such a great and fast read. Let us know what you think of the book when you're done.
