I tried reading this book several years ago for a bookclub and couldn't get past the first few chapters, but I'm delving in again because it is one of the inspiration pieces for a theater project I'm working on with dog&pony dc. I'm just a little bit in and I'm enjoying it more than I did before - finally able to appreciate the humor and intellectualism of Foer's writing a bit more. It is a charming, clever story with funny, interesting characters. Hopefully I'll make the connections I need to be "inspired" with new creativity for our theater piece Beertown.
