5.0 out of 5 stars Going beyond victimhood, 11 Aug. 2004
This review is from: Lucky (Paperback)
I read and loved the complex and in some ways chaotic LOVELY BONES before I read LUCKY. The former is about a young girl who is raped and murdered and whose body is stuffed away by her killer; the latter is about Sebold's own horrific experience of rape, the title being a declaration without irony that she is indeed to lucky to have survived and gone on to make a life for herself. Where LOVELY BONES had a beguiling and seemingly contradictory dark whimsy at its heart, LUCKY has a straightforward and brutal honesty that is compelling, insightful and deeply moving. Sebold brings a courageous and winning sense of humour to the telling too.
The books work as beautiful companion pieces that explore the aftermath of violence. Every young man and woman should read both books for moral instruction. An equally compelling and haunting book about recovery from loss and the endurance of pain is IN THE GHOST COUNTRY which is about the most honest and entertaining study of emotions by a man I have read so far.
