I listened to this book and think that having it read added to the experience. Parts I may have skimmed over and missed the full impact of weren’t an issue, cause I wasn’t in control of the speed. The main character is a young boy 8-ish. He has lost his father in the 9/11 attacks and the many ways he tries to understand his grief are heart-wrenching. I enjoyed the writing and perspective of a child, albeit it a very precocious one. The only drawback was the seriously creepy voice of the grandfather. When he came on the first time I thought “Where is this novel going? Is this really horror fiction?” It’s not horror, but I bet that’s what the ‘grandpa’ does when not doing normal books.
