My book club is reading this and I was excited based on all the reviews.. what a disappointment. I understand its being told from the perspective of a 5 year old, but the diction and narration made it a caricature of reality. Compared to better written novels, I was never "sucked in" because the actions of the characters and the unrealistic results were so far-fetched that it never even seemed plausible. I can suspend reality and buy into most of the first quarter of the book, but it degrades so rapidly in its "realism" that it detracted from the book as a whole. I think the story is an interesting one, but at best it is a mediocre read.
