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.

Creative voice and perspective

I thought the voice and perspective of the 9 yr. old boy was so great and fresh. I concur with the unusual and smart
comment of other reviewer. Gave insight not sadness.


Compelling, unusual, and smart, this book watches a young boy deal with the death of his father in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. It is not overly sad, but it heals.
