I'm always looking for "the" book that will sweep me off my feet and this takes much more than the typical romance. A good adventure book though is close enough to do the trick.
I read this book during my breaks at work. I figure I must do something productive. Overall I enjoyed the concept. The pictures were a neat accessory to the book and made Oskar quirky and overly smart for his age. Not to mention they were relevant to the story line...at times. At one point I was like "I could have sworn that I saw that door knob before." While there were times when I was a bit confused by who narrated a chapter I gradually grew to understand it. At times where were some heartfelt moments and I wondered how the mom could let Oskar go all around the place with a complete stranger. Of course I get my answers in the end.
Again it's one of those books that ties everything together and honestly the last few chapters were the most interesting for me.
