These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Lovely Bones
Angst? What Angst?: Even taking into account the time-span between Susie's murder and Grandma Lynn's arrival at the house, she seems remarkably blase about the fact her eldest grandchild had been murdered.
Perhaps it's clearer in the novel, but the film's loose depiction of the timeline leaves open the weak possibility that she dealt with the initial shock of the event in a previous visit more immediately after the murder.
IIRC, Grandma Lynn's equivalent visit in the novel is much, much later in the timeline than it is in the movie.
