This book was so amazing it made you feel happy and sad all at once and it was as if you've known the characters for years. I can't say what my favorite part was because to me there wasn't one time where i felt bored. when i started reading i didn't want to sleep or even eat (i did though lol). It was absolutely spell binding. Because of the fact that i don't know how to explain it to you i'l just give you the book overview that i found online
Leo Gursky is just about surviving, tapping his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he's still alive. But life wasn't always like this: sixty years ago, in the Polish village where he was born, Leo fell in love and wrote a book. And though Leo doesn't know it, that book survived, inspiring fabulous circumstances, even love. Fourteen-year-old Alma was named after a character in that very book. And although she has her hands full--keeping track of her brother, Bird (who thinks he might be the Messiah), and taking copious notes on How to Survive in the Wild--she undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With consummate, spellbinding skill, Nicole Krauss gradually draws together their stories.
