May lagi akong kasama na makulit na bata. Kasabay ko sya kadalasan umuwi ng Bulacan kapag inaabot ng gabi yung skedyul ko sa skul. Tapos nung biyernes sweldo nya kaya nilibre nya ako ng sine at wintermelon milk tea. Salamat Dave! Ingatan mo yung salamin ko makulit na bata! :P

Oskar is an interesting nine-year old child with an incredibly clever sense of humor and a very pessimistic outlook on life. He’s also socially awkward in terms of naivety, for instance when he gave the apartment key to the doorman. It’s still very hard for me to actually believe that all of this is coming from the mind and mouth of a child. However, Mrs. Clark definitely made a point in our last class when she mentioned that Oskar is insanely intelligent beyond his years, but still has the emotional level of the nine-year old boy that he actually is. I think this is seen with his insecure feelings towards his mom’s “friend” Ron.

An interesting tidbit, when I first started reading this book, the character Kevin, from the Home Alone movies immediately popped in my mind as a comparison for Oskar. While it might seem a bit far-off to compare the two, they both share that same highly intelligent yet emotionally challenged. For instance, Kevin repeatedly thinks his parents dislike him and always play favorites with his older brother, yet he can randomly make incredibly thought out traps in a pinch for burglars?
