View original post 2. A hidden story - that what we are reading is a memory of child's imaginative attemp to understand things that he can not understand - death, sex, abuse.

I thought this as well for the majority of the book. The ending did take away from this explanation but I didn't mind it too much.

In fact, the only problem I had with the book was the mature narration of our seven year old protagonist. He seemed a little too advanced for a child of that age and various points but, then again, I have no memory of my thought processes at age seven so I could be wrong.

Oh and my username is what it is because I couldn't think of a better username...I'm not trying to be obnoxious.
