Good Points: It’s a definite break away from the supernatural sentimentality of The Lovely Bones but retains Sebold’s beautiful prose style.
Bad Points: Because of the above statement, I doubt that it’ll be remembered. It was exciting – secrets are unravelled as the plot goes on and the entire story takes place within a day – but I was expecting more, I think.
Good For: When you fancy something not-too-challenging to read but cannot stand the sight of another Sophie Kinsella.
