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 didnt 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 swingset.) With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their griefher father embarks on a search for the killer, her sister undertakes a feat of amazing daring, her little brother builds a fort in her honorand begin the difficult process of healing. In the hands of a brilliant new novelist, and through the eyes of her winning young heroine, this story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful, touching, even funny novel about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.

    Bellissimo, argomento delicato ma tristemente attuale!

    Immersione nella tristezza

    Un libro che mi ha lasciato solo una fastidiosa sensazione di tristezza e di aver sottratto tempo a letture più gradevoli. Ma bisogna pur provare per credere.

    In trent'anni di letture questo è l'ottavo libro abbandonato. Ci ho provato due volte. La prima non sono riuscito a terminare la lettura del primo capitolo, la seconda volta sono arrivato a pagina 74 e in tutta sincerità più leggevo più mi accorgevo che mi stavo allontanando dalla lettura in generale. Quando un libro causa questo grave danno va abbandonato.

    Deprimente

    Ecco uno degli acquisti librari dei quali mi sono pentita. Ho una sola parola per descriverlo: deprimente.
