Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The spirit of fourteen-year-old Susie Salmon describes her murder, her surprise at her new home in heaven, and her witness to her family's grief, efforts to find the killer, and attempts to come to terms with what has happened. A first novel.

Review:
"An extraordinary, almost-successful debut that treats sensational material with literary grace....[M]ostly mesmerizing and deserving of the attention it's sure to receive."

Kirkus, 05/01/2002

Review:
"What might play as a sentimental melodrama in the hands of a lesser writer becomes in this volume a keenly observed portrait of familial love and how it endures and changes over time. The novel is an elegy...about a vanished place and time and the loss of childhood innocence. And it is also a deeply affecting meditation on the ways in which terrible pain and loss can be redeemed...through love and acceptance....[Some] lapses do not diminish Ms. Sebold's achievements: the ability to capture both the ordinary and the extraordinary, the banal and the horrific, in lyrical, unsentimental prose; her instinctive understanding of the mathematics of love between parents and children; her gift for making palpable the dreams, regrets and unstilled hopes of one girl and one family."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 06/18/2002

Book Description: Back Bay. 1 Paperback(s), 2003. soft. Book Condition: New. "My name was Salmon, like the fish; first name, Susie. I was fourteen when I was murdered on December 6, 1973. My murderer was a man from our neighborhood. My mother liked his border flowers, and my father talked to him once about fertilizer." So begins Alice Sebold's stunning debut novel. Watching from heaven, Susie sees her happy, suburban family devastated by her death, isolated even from one another as they each try to cope. Her friends and siblings grow up, fall in love, and do all the things she never had the chance to do herself—but life is not quite finished with Susie yet. This is a luminous novel about life and death, forgiveness and vengeance, memory and forgetting, and about finding light in the darkest of places."Painfully funny, bracingly tough, terribly sad, it is a feat of imagination and a tribute to the healing power of grief."—Michael Chabon 328.
