I finished this book two months ago, and I still don't know what I think of it. I found some aspects of it - the ridiculously precocious narrator and the at times overly-imaginative narratives - annoying and distracting. The plot is ... well ... flawed, in some important respects.

On the other hand, this book contains one of the most real and devastating narratives of grief I've ever read. It's just painful. And breathtaking. The ending!! So gorgeous! Argh.

Sigh. I have no idea!
