Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this excellent recording of Foer's second novel, Woodman artfully captures the voice of nine-year-old Oskar Schell, the precocious amateur physicist who is trying to uncover clues about his father's death on September 11. Oskar—a self-proclaimed pacifist, tambourine player and Steven Hawking fanatic—is the perfect blend of smart-aleck maturity and youthful innocence. Articulating the large words slowly and carefully with only a hint of childishness, Woodman endearingly conveys the voice of a young child who is trying desperately to sound like an adult. The parallel story lines, beautifully narrated by Ferrone and Caruso, add variety to the imaginative and captivating plot, but they do not translate quite as seamlessly into audio format. Ferrone's wistful growl is perfect for the voice of a man who can no longer speak, but since the listener actually gets to hear the words that the character can only convey by writing on a notepad, his frustrating silence is not as profound. Caruso's brilliant performance as an adoring grandmother is also noteworthy, but the meandering stream-of-consciousness style of her and Ferrone's sections are sometimes hard to follow on audio. Although it is Oskar's poignant, laugh-out-loud narration that make this audio production indispensable.

From AudioFile

This clever and moving novel of interconnected stories is told--and narrated--in three voices: Jeff Woodman is Oskar Schell, from whose perspective the majority of the story is told; Richard Ferrone is his grandfather, Thomas; and Barbara Caruso is his grandmother. The three-voice performance is very effective, but Jeff Woodman is the standout, utterly convincing as precocious 9-year-old Oskar, who is searching for answers about his father's death in the 9/11 World Trade Center attack. The novel is alternately harrowing and hilarious, as much a meditation on life and loss as a collective biography of the individuals who make up New York City. Compelling listening.
