Stunning and Immaculate

4 years ago I read, The Lovely Bones." The book is stunning. It made me think about life, and told an earth-shattering story at the same time. It doesn't hide anguish, soften the feeling of terror or wrap anything in a neat little package. It's raw, jaw-dropping and honest.
Yesterday a friend told me that this amazing book is being made into a movie. Directed by, the incredible, Peter Jackson this movie is one that I can not wait to see. The trailer almost made me cry as I watched it, and I wonder how honest they are going to be when they film the graphic scenes.

Stunning book. I recommend it to anyone and everyone! But, make sure you have some tissues handy!
(PS-The trailer isn't much a spoiler. You find out the concept of the book from the very first paragraph.)
