it was amazing
Read in January, 2010

Foer’s work reads like both a cryptic adventure novel and a boy’s quest for proceeding after the death of his father during the collapse of the twin towers. Oskar Schell is on a search for a key left in a vase owned by his father. Though the novel is set in the aftermath of 9/11, Oskar’s ability to seem entertaining and humorous is not lessened while also provoking understated sympathy. Although, the main character is a child, this is a sophisticated work with multiple plots that explore the themes of death,love and war. http://chile.las-cruces.org/search~S1...-
