Ok, so I read "The Lovely Bones" last month and finally saw the movie (that is a rule in our house, movie adaptions of books, the book has to be read first,LOL)
Anyway, I had a question for those who have a better memory than me on this one point. In the movie version, they showed and or indicated that Holly was a victim of Mr. Harvey. I don't remember that from the book. Can anyone support or debunk this for me? I don't have the book anymore, so I can't go back and look at it, and goggle isn't helping me
I will say that I liked the book better, although it wasn't my favorite book to read. And I was thankful that the movie kind of dumbed down the whole Susie/Ruth body switch thing. Ugh, don't even get me started on that point.
Thanks in advance!
I read the book many years ago, and after seeing the movie I thought I needed to reread it, I could tell there were differences I just couldn't put my finger on it - so I can't help much. I do remember the Holly thing in the movie but I can't say about that in the book. And I had forgotten the Susie/Ruth switch in the book until you said it. I hope someone can answer - now you have me wondering.
I found some comparisons:
Not sure if they will answer all of your questions, but they answered some of mine. It's been too long since I read the book to do my own compare and contrast. I'll eventually re-read the book, but have no desire to do so anytime soon.
The movie was such a let down; I liked the book, though.
