The greatest first 30 pages ever. I am one of those OCD literary nerds who takes on a war bunker mentality with books that I've started uma vida interrompida dislike: Somewhere, sometime, someone told Sebold she could write.

Uma vida interrompida: Memórias de um anjo assassinado (100 milhões de leitores)

That person should be made to apologize to me, in person, and to all other poor souls who were uma vida interrompida into buying this shlock.

The literary press also needs to break out the cattails for a serious bout of flogging. Lev Grossman of Haaaaaated it. Lev Grossman of Time Magazine is at the top of my flogging docket; he called this book "a beautiful, sensitive, melancholy novel" and repeated that claim a year later in a review for a book called "The Dogs of Babel" a book just as terrible as The Lovely Bones.

I can only assume that Mr. Grossman confined his reading to the zeros uma vida interrompida the check accompanying the publisher's blurb or else has some sort of vitamin deficiency that causes his brain to process ham-handed tripe as "beautiful" art.

Uma vida interrompida : memórias de um anjo assassinado (Book, ) []

Grossman's review along with the alluring premise of the novel a young girl posthumously tries to make sense of the events that led to her death that led me to order "The Lovely Bones" and "The Dogs of Babel," which at the time were only available in hardcover.

Financial reasons made this an extremely uncommon practice for me, and my experience reading both of those novels ensured that I would never do so again.

To further illustrate how absolutely wretched this novel is, I'm going to provide a paragraph of background. The "substance" of the novel will be criticized in the subsequent body of this review.

During the summer ofI was occupying uma vida interrompida as an intern at a company that accepted uma vida interrompida at the last minute and had nothing for me to do.


The company was white-collar and behemoth in office space. HR sent me to an deserted floor to file documents that took up, at most, 2 hours of my 8-hour day.

Even in this vacuum of monotony, I could not finish this book. I chose to watch paint chip uma vida interrompida, and pick up dust bunnies with recycled paper I didn't have a broom rather than finish this book.

So uma vida interrompida that said, I suppose I should actually mention something specific about the book I hated. My caveat here is that I am unwilling to punish myself by picking through a copy of the book for textual examples.

I'm going by memory and online synopses alone.


The narrator and victim is "Susie Salmon. That really should have clued me in, but I was too eager to see how the author would represent the afterlife, to catch a glimpse of this beautiful pain uma vida interrompida looking a life that goes on without you.

Unfortunately, Sebold managed to bleach out anything remotely interesting out of the plot in uma vida interrompida fashion.

Heaven is a school, you see, not that Susie spends much time there or learns anything. Her rapist and murderer is a creepy loser while somehow being the dullest of all of Sebold's numerous dull characters. The "reason" for uma vida interrompida murderous tendencies could be guessed by anyone who's ever even heard of a pop psychology book.

You'd think uma vida interrompida family would at least be interesting in grief, but Sebold reduces them to one note drones.


Everything in The Uma vida interrompida Bones is a gimmick, played cheaply for sentiment and with no other reward. I'd compare to a Hallmark movie, but Hallmark movies do not adopt the pretension that Sebold belabors with terrible pseudo-post-modernist metaphors.
