worth reading though. Life enhancing in a weird way.

it does. in a way. it is worth perservering with. it is a very astute and compelling book

really hard going. Made me very uncomfortable in parts. Have you read the lovely bones?

Very difficult but important read. Far superior to the lovely bones which I found mawkish and just awful really...

Very hard going and uncomfortable, but definitely worth completing.

I started reading it and found it quite disturbing. Kept meaning to finish it but never did. Will go back to it at some point as I do want to know the ending.

im pretty sure that this book was based on what happened to her when she was at college i saw or read an interview with her and she was talking about it.

i have read most of it but its one of those books i keep going off then going back too. ive also read lovely bones and i thought this was a good book.

yes Lucky is autobigraphical The Lovely Bones is loosely based on her own experience and sort of as an alternative outcome.
