This book, written by Jonathan Safren Foer is sad and funny at the same time. Written from the point of view of an intelligent, curious, young boy whose father died in 911 and following his search to learn more about his father. While hardly realistic, one is willing to suspend their belief in order to enjoy a good read.
This is the authors' second book, the first; Everything Illuminated, having won several awards. This book is slotted to be released in the theatres in 2012 starring Sandra Bullock, Tom Hanks and John Goodman.
