Summary:

Literary sensation Jonathan Safran Foer wowed readers with his critically-lauded and best-selling debut novel Everything Is Illuminated. Now he's back with the witty and moving story of nine-year-old amateur inventor and budding Shakespearean actor, Oskar Schell. Weeks after his father perishes in the World Trade Center on 9/11, Oskar discovers a mysterious key hidden in his father's closet and becomes obsessed with finding the lock it opens. So he begins a methodical process of investigation by employing the New York City phonebook! "This follow-up to Foer's extremely good and incredibly successful Everything Is Illuminated ... is arrestingly beautiful."-Booklist

    The narration of this was incredible. I'm so glad I listened to it! I also recommend having a physical copy of the book because somethings are fun and useful to see, such as the photographs throughout the book - but I am so glad I listened to this. It really enhanced the experience. Very moving story, very heartfelt but not overdone. Excellent father-son and overall family story.
