The Lovely Bones - Discussion

When The Lovely Bones first began to get a lot of press coverage here in Britain, it was featured on an evening talk show's Book Club (kind of like the GB answer to Oprah).

When they reviewed it, there was general dislike of Sebold's approach to and descriptions of heaven. Before I tell you what they said, I'm interested to see what anyone who has read it thinks. Did you think it sacreligious, or over-simplified? Did you think it ideal?

Also, it was stated vehemently that no mother could/would ever read that book. What do you think?

Just to get the conversation going
