    I read Lucky after The Lovely Bones too, firegirl. I think some of her story does play out a little in The Lovely Bones, but Lucky is a lot more "real" if you will. That was definitely a tough story for me since my roommate in college was pretty much raped like that. Ugh. Makes me sick.

    Just a little note for Dorthy31 and Crissy: I've started reading Jane Eyre. If you guys want to discuss it when you're done reading it (not sure when you said you were planning to start), just let me know. I'm about five chapters in right now, and I'm loving it.

    Oh, and BTW, The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers was an excellent read. Very imaginative and well-executed. Highly recommended if you like your fiction wild and speculative.

    Sorry I am late on this thread. I love to read and have read the first four Harry Potter books. They are fantastic for any age. Currently I am reading a mystery by Jonathan Kellerman and have read (his wife) Fay Kellerman's books also.

    I have read so many books that I cannot remember what they were. But Anna I would love to read Blindness it sounds interesting.


    Good Luck with what you are reading now.

    Sometimes life is very messy. Things change every second for good or bad. Nothing ever stays the same. After traumatic events; things never get back to "normal".

    I can not wait to discuss this book...but I will.

    I am about 60 pages in to the book and I am a little bit worried. I think I am going to try to only read this book in the day time because I tend to dream about disturbing things if I read about them before bedtime. I don't know... I am find it to be an easy read, even enjoyable in spots, but the subject is so harsh. I guess I'm a wimp when it comes to death, violence, etc. Anyways, just thought I would check in with my initial view of the book. I do think we will have a pretty good discussion about it though. I'm looking forward to July 8

    I'm going to get the book on Saturday. I'll have plenty of time to read it. I'm pretty quick. I don't think my computer will be able to go online from where I'll be on July 8th, but I will join in the chat later.

    I agree, skywise. I'm a wimp too. I hate it when people are hurt etc. Yuck. Makes me feel...bleh.

    Okay, Paulie. I haven't had a chance to go back to the library but I will very soon. Is it a fairly long book (pages?)?

    Um, not too bad. 300+ pages, I think, but the prose is pretty dense. You really have to hang with it. Her writing is excellent, though. I love the way she describes the action. I've read at least a dozen passages where I went back and re-read the line several times in hopes that I'd remember it long after I finish the book.
