Narrated by Barbara Caruso, Richard Ferrone, Jeff Woodsman.
Nine-year-old Oskar Schell is a precocious Francophile who idolizes Stephen Hawking and plays the tambourine extremely well. He's also a boy struggling to come to terms with his father's death in the World Trade Center attacks. As he searches New York City for the lock that fits a mysterious key he left behind, Oskar discovers much more than he could have imagined.
This recording was at times entertaining, at times heartbreaking.
I wish I had never heard it so that I could hear it again with fresh ears.
comment of other reviewer. Gave insight not sadness.
