So after a lunch discussion with my mom I decided to join her for a late night movie, she chose The Lovely Bones. Now I really had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I am always game for a movie night!
It was interesting, I was very intrigued from the get go. Susie Salmon is truly a sweetheart, a little girl who has a tender heart, cares for a little penguin in a snowglobe, silly but adorable. She loves the same thing all children love, to play, to take pictures, to make memories... and then of course she is murdered (I give nothing away, you would have seen it in the preview).
The man who murdered Susie Salmon was creepy, I sat through that entire movie completely creeped out... this writer has some very vivid thoughts... I know now watching the movie that the book would be an impossible read for me, it would keep me up at night... terrify me... because we all know a book is far more descriptive than a film.
The one thing I left there thinking about was being stuck in the "in between" Susie at parts said it was wonderful, then at other parts - when she had to sleep - she had to re-live the awful night all over again... I don't think I could do that... and I hope to never have to!
Overall I would say it was a very good movie, and I am sure several people very much enjoyed the books, but I did leave the movie theater still feeling a little off!
This is my midnight movie review... since I didn't get to blog earlier in the evening I thought I would give you a little tidbit!
