By Jonathan Safran Foer
Oh, kids. I can’t remember reading a book and enjoying it this much. The story focuses on Oskar Schell, a little man of approximately nine-years-old, as he attempts to unearth as much information as possible about his late father who died in The Tragedy of September 11th.
If you’ve lost someone, you’ll get it.
If you haven’t, you’ll read it and empathize.
This author astounds me. I adored Oskar. He’s precocious; beyond intelligent. He’s struggling with grief and his brain skips like a record from subject to subject. I love that.
So there’s Oskar. Then there’s his grandma and grandfather; a parallel story of love and loss.
Great book. Buy it here for $7.03 on your kindle.
P.S. There’s a movie by the same name that I will never see because the Law of Life clearly states that movies are never as good as books. Ever.
