It is truly a black, black tragedy that the words in this book were placed in that particular order, published, and distributed. How could this have ever possibly been popular? Is it for the same reason that the song My Humps hit number one? I mean, I dont technically believe in burning books, but this novel really got me thinking. About burning it. If it serves any use at The Lovely Bones has got to be the most baffling, poorly written, jaw-droppingly bad book that I have ever set my eyes on.

If it serves any use at all, it might be a perfect guide on how not to write a book. From bad description to horrible grammar to utterly confusing metaphors, Sebold covered it all. A tell-tale way to spot a weak writer?

She asked for coffee and toast in a restaurant and buttered it with her tears. She buttered the coffee and toast with her tears? Ferocious olives. It seems to lack a plot. You know, that thing that books are supposed to have. Sebold has the same problem: her book is a really long situation. A girl dies and watches her family from heaven. But what do the characters want?

What drives the story forward? The characters get older and keep bumping into each other. Things change, and things often do, but there is no forward movement and certainly no building of suspense. She is just plain bold when it comes to doing whatever she feels like, and she feels like doing the weirdest stuff ever. Her characters never have interesting or complex thoughts. Not even the serial killer or the mother whose daughter was murdered.

As you might guess, there is a lot of laughing and crying in this book. When a character is confused, they laugh and cry at the same time. This also happens often. I feel a little better after venting. I feel like my own writing might have been permanently damaged by reading this book… like a couple of… ferocious… olives?
