This is a prose poem exploring love, loss and yearning.

Foer's writing style has been lauded as well as criticized but--beyond that--he has created one of literature's most memorable characters, Oskar Schell.

The novel pivots around Oskar's quixotic quest to find the lock that fits a key belonging to his deceased father. As he uses his vivid imagination, follows his heart and tries to bring peace to his soul, we travel with him. It is a wonderful journey.
