Publisher Description

ONE OF THE MOST LOVED NOVELS OF THE DECADE.


A long-lost book reappears, mysteriously connecting an old man searching for his son and a girl seeking a cure for her widowed mother's loneliness.

Leo Gursky taps his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he’s still alive. But it wasn’t always like this: in the Polish village of his youth, he fell in love and wrote a book…Sixty years later and half a world away, fourteen-year-old Alma, who was named after a character in that book, undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With virtuosic skill and soaring imaginative power, Nicole Krauss gradually draws these stories together toward a climax of "extraordinary depth and beauty" (Newsday).

A must read.

I'm in love with this book.

added to my list of awful books

I’m about 72% done with this book and I’m only finishing it out of spite and because I paid for it.

I’ve never read a book with a worst writing style. Why is all the dialogue clumped into one paragraph? Feels like I’m reading something written by a fifth grader who doesn’t understand the rules of writing dialogue.

Overall, it’s just a bad book. The plot is all jumbled and hard to understand, the characters are badly written. I absolutely HATE this book, which says a lot because there are only two other books that I hate so fiercely.

But hey! If you’re an aspiring writer just remember... if this can get published so can your book!
