I don't usually blog about books I don't finish, but I'm going to this time. I listened to this audiobook until Disk 6 (out of 10) and I just couldn't take it anymore.

I loved the parts about the young boy, Oskar, and his trouble dealing with the death of his father on 9/11. Oskar is cute and odd. But then there were points-of-view from people I didn't care about....and too much of them. I need to see the movie and see if it sticks with Oskar's story. Now, I know I sound like a young kid with a short attention span, but I didn't want to wait and see how the stories came together at the end.
