really liked it
Read in February, 2011

This was one of the weirdest books that I have read. The story of a gifted and hilarious 9 year old boy in search of a connection to his dad, who died in 9-11. I laughed, I cried, I was confused, and then at the end I got it. I like a book that is clever in the story telling. I liked it a lot, and I especially like Oskar and my heart broke for him and his mom.

By the way, I read this on my Nook and there were parts of the book that didn't display very well. I would recommend reading the real book.
