After his father's death in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, 9 year old Oskar Schell begins following and searching for clues to try to understand the past, present and future. Several stories weave together that address Oskar's and his relatives' pasts. The narratives are sometimes entertaining, humorous, sad, and tragic. The sound recording of the book is wonderful to listen to with multiple authors narrating each of their own chapters. The book, however, offers a much different experience interspersed with a sort of journal, bizarre scribbles, photographs, and interesting page layouts. Check the catalog for availability.
