I started reading The Lovely Bones and man, I think there's a risk I might turn away. Not that it's poorly written or anything, we'll get to all that after the book club meeting, but I find the opening disturbing.

I typically consider myself someone who looks beyond the face value shocker to the whole story. I watch "Law & Order" and "CSI" and all sorts of crime shows and it never really impacts me. But for some reason, as the killer lures her into his hidey hole - narrated in the rear view mirror from heaven, I just get creeped out.

Maybe I need to be safe and secure in a warm blanket in front of a working fireplace to get through it.
