Jonathan Safran Foer follows his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, with an unexpectedly hilarious and affecting story about New York City in the period following September 11
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close recasts recent history through the eyes of Oskar Schell, an unusually intelligent nine-year-old on an urgent quest to find the lock that matches a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center. This unlikely adventure takes Oskar through every city borough and into contact with survivors of all sorts, and it's his irrepressible voice—one that few writers could conceive as imaginatively as Foer does—that transforms the tragedy of circumstance into an exhilarating tribute to love.

I hadn't read a book that enveloped me in such a long time. One that takes you in & you can't stop reading it. For so long I wondered if literature was lost until I read this book. The love I developed for Oscar was so emotional I was actually so disappointed when the book ended because I felt like he had become apart of my life! I recommend this book to everyone I know, & I'll read it again & again.
Very different from the movie. READ IT.
This is one of the most moving books I have read in a while. Safran Foer is one of the literary greats of our generation. The movie was good too, but you owe it to yourself to read the book.
Loved this book! A really touching story and a good mix of funny and heartwarming moments!
