Comments: Beautiful story and very well written. Sebold really did a good job telling the story from Susie's point of view. Sometimes I had to put the book down, because it was a little too much. For instance the part where Susie gets murdered. Heavy stuff. I didn't like what happened to Mr. Harvey at the end. Too abrupt, but that's the only critical note. Overall it was a fantastic book.
Rating: 4,5/ 5
