A Pound of Flesh - Sophie Jackson

I know I usually post about the books I am currently reading. However, I have just read an article in a local paper about A Pound of Flesh by Sophie Jackson and I really like the sound of it!

As some of you may have seen on my Facebook and Twitter accounts for this blog I have quite a collection of books on my bookshelf to read through, but this book has really caught my eye! At only £8.99 I am considering buying it and adding it to my review list.

The Lovely Bones...Maybe not for me

Title: The Lovely Bones
Author: Alice Sebold
ISBN: 978-0-330-45772-9
Rating: 7/10
Genre: Fantasy, Drama

"These were the lovely bones that had grown around my absence: the connections - sometimes tenuous, sometimes made at great cost, but often magnificent - that happened after I was gone. And I began to see things in a way that let me hold the world without me in it. The events that my death wrought were merely the bones of a body that would become whole at some unpredictable time in the future. The price of what I came to see as this miraculous body had been my life." 

I started to read this book in April. I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time as I had heard great things about both the book and the film. I had not seen the film and a number of my friends have read the book. I have had this book on my shelf for a number of years and I had high hopes for it.
