It seems like everyone loves this book so Idk if it's just me and not the book. I had a hard time staying interested. It seems like a story that would be perfect for me. It's fiction but wrapped in a lot of fact. The narrator has a colorful family with lives that seem like each could be their own book. The grandfather is the center of everything but really it's about the whole family. It has spy stuff, war, mental illness, rockets, just a bit of everything. It sounds great in theory, but for me, there were times I had to force myself to keep reading.
