I've heard people challenging the notion that this book is Science Fiction. If it's not, then it deserves it's own genre. It was so good and so different in so many ways.

the best book I have read so far in 2012.

The Lovely Bones is a 2002 novel by Alice Sebold. It is the story of a teenage girl who, after being raped and murdered, watches from her personal Heaven as her family and friends struggle to move on with their lives while she comes to terms with her own death. The novel received much critical praise and became an instant bestseller.

a very good book about a complicated home situation. And to think I only bought it because of Jodi Picoult's review on the cover!

The Paris Wife by Paul McLain. Enchanting story of Hemingway's first marriage to Hadley Richardson and the allure of Paris in the twenties. Great insight into Hemingway's early years as a writer.

The Paris Wife... This was one of my book club's selections that turned out to be a delightful surprise-- I loved it! In fact, I was so taken with Ernest Hemmingway's first wife, Hadley's, account of the couple's "Paris years" that I finally read his "A Moveable Feast," which is his account of the same time. Sounds dull, but it fascinated me for some reason. Recommended!

Ranging from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love, The Swan Thieves is a story of obsession, the losses of history, and the power of art to preserve human hope.

Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen Good book, but found the animal cruelty in spots hard to stomach!
