Book Review: Extremly Loud & Incredibly Close

Comments (3)

If you like to read, think, or even breathe, you must read Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.  After Amy finished it the other night, she told me it the was best book she had read this year (and she reads more than I do.)  I think she was being understated. 

I’m sitting here looking at the ocean and the mountains in the late evening Alaska dusk.  When I think about 9/11, or the recent London Bombings, or any number of other tragedies that humans perpetrate on each other, I am grateful to be alive and relatively sane.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and, most importantly – you’ll feel - as you read this book.

The author, Jonathan Safran Foer, is a literary genius.  And – he’s young – so hopefully he’s got plenty more where this came from.  Wow.  Between Foer, Rawicz, and Frey, I’ve had an awesome summer of reading so far.

    Do you use any gadget to read the book, like txt to speech?
