This book is written in a non-traditional style. This does not at all diminish the impact of the the themes and characters - in fact it enhances them. Hang in there, the agony of reading some of the sections (stream of consciousness, absent correct spacing and punctuation) - will create in you a deeper appreciation of the character's feelings.

A 9 year old boy has lost his father in the 911 World Trade Center crash. There are 2 stories within the novel. Also the life of his grandfather. It's a good read but very unusual.

Exactly as the title describes, this is a rapid fire ride with a very precocious 9 year old who lost his father in the Twin Towers on 9/11.
It's impossible to describe and impossible to put down.

A beautiful book, but don't expect a "traditional" narrative. With a young boy as our narrator/hero, we jump from subject to subject and character to character. The death of his father on 9/11 is handled very respectfully (not to mention it made me tear up on a few occasions- and not by being sappy or manipulative) it's a lovely character journey that has an engaging plot wrapped around it. Some of it reminded me of one of my favorite novels, written by Foer's wife funnily enough- The History of Love, which I HIGHLY recommend if you enjoyed this one.

This book is about a little boy searching for clues about his father who died at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. The boy is precocious, the story is heart breaking. There is also background information regarding his grandparents that is pertinent. A difficult read (emotionally), but an important one.
