Along with the rest of humanity, I read The Lovely Bones
. But I don't know how Susie Salmon died. I'm assuming it happened in the hole in the field with the guy from next door. I know it was hinted at throughout the book and that the whole story led up to that scene, but I didn't read it. I had a pretty good idea of what was about to happen when it started, and I just flipped forward three pages and moved on. Because no matter how great the artistry or the need for the event in the plot, I can't read about people murdering children. Or rather, I can. But I don't want to. There's enough of that in plain old life.
