  1. There are books that affect me and then there are books that kill me This falls in the latter I cried on the couch, I cried on the bus, I cried at stoplights, I cried at work I cried over this book than I did on the actual September 11th Then I became upset that this piece of fiction could invoke such melancholia Can I use the excuse of being in shock during the actual event That it seemed like a movie I have no excuse Flash back The second half of 1994, my then boyfriend and I living in the Ea [...]

  2. well, i m naturally drawn to those people who are overwhelmed by existence, by people who hurt too easily who, for them, life seems to be almost too much for whom the unceasing cacophony of thought and memory and idea is just too painful and all the cruelty and the violence is inconceivable and the mystery of life and love and foreverness and the past and all of it is just overwhelming to the point in which one wishes one could scream so loud that it would just make it all go away, that one coul [...]

  3. There must be something wrong with me I m not as smart as my goodreader friends I lack empathy My humor is deficient I have no compassion And I suck at life.Of the 40 of you friends who read this, this is how you rated it 5 stars 18 people 4 stars 13 people3 stars 7 people2 stars 2 people1 star 0 peopleSomething wrong with me indeed Or something wrong with all of you No I didn t finish it I value opportunity and freedom too much for that I listened to it People tell me if I had read it instead o [...]

  4. When Thomas Pynchon invented what James Wood later named hyper realism , he did literature no favors To read Pynchon is to witness genius at its most joyless A mind capable of inventing myriad things and compelled to record them all But at least Pynchon showed genius.What Jonathan Safran Foer shows, however, is mere gimmickry Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close takes readers who thought they might have seen a glimmer of greatness in Everything is Illuminated and convinces them all they really sa [...]

  5. A apt title would have been Terribly Artificial and Unbearably Pretentious This seems like the kind of thing I would have thought was a profound idea when I myself was nine, laboring on crayon illustrations to include with my manuscript into the wee hours of the morning Maybe that means Foer succeeded I happen to think it means his efforts were an abject failure, and that he has a great many readers and critics completely snowed.With a book like this, you either accept it as charming wistfulnes [...]

  6. I m Oskar with a k like Liza with a Z cause Oskar with a k is krazy also kind, klever and kultured I m 10 going on Dalai Lama I make jewellery I know and collect butterflies who have died naturally and play a tambourine constantly You have to wonder why no one has killed me since I must drive people insane with my maximum cuteness Oh, and have shortwave radio conversations with my grandma over in another desirable residence in the Upper West Side I have empathy for every living thing including y [...]

  7. Today while tutoring, I ve met with one student right at 1 and another at 4 In between those times, I read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Perhaps that was not the smartest thing to doSometimes I find the book so funny that I laugh out loud Which is fine if I had a quiet laugh, but I don t And I tutor in a common meeting space which is a center room with offices surrounding it Clearly, everyone in the office knew I was getting paid to laugh at what I was reading I felt bad if I was working, [...]

  8. Extremely Loud and Incredbily Close Jonathan Foer s novel of love, loss, and memoryThere are events that leave an indelible stamp on us for a great portion of our lives This happens from generation to generation.Ask those living at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbor where they were and what they were doing, they will be able to tell you the answer Similarly, ask me where I was when I heard John F Kennedy was shot, I can tell you.Ask what I was doing when the attacks of 9 11 occurred, I can t [...]

  9. I read the first chapter and stopped I am pissed off I have rarely felt so manipulated as a reader in my life, and I think the manipulation is about the way it is written than what it is written about, although that is, in itself, fairly manipulative If this is how Foer usually writes, I want no part of him or his work Still, if this was a short story and I reached the point where the Dad is about to talk to his son before the towers collapse, I would be excited by the cleverness of the moment, [...]

  10. This book gives me heavy boots.On the one hand, Foer writes an interesting story An eight year old boy Oskar, two years after his father s death in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, embarks on a scavenger hunt, searching for clues to a key his father left behind, a key that he believes opens a mysterious lock somewhere in New York City Oskar is precocious to say the least I thought several times that he reminds me a bit of Holden Caulfield, albeit younger and somewhat less pessimi [...]

  11. This was horrible The writing was horrible The book jumped around and around and was so hard to follow It was like reading something written by someone who was half squirrel and half crack head Instead of creating colorful and deep characters using words, he used punctuation The grandfather spoke using an abundance of useless commas, the grandmother used lots of periods and Mr Black spoke in sentences using only exclamation points I was thankful no spoke by asking only questions If I would have [...]

  12. I hate to keep pointing out to everyone that I listened to the audio version of this or that book, as it gets repetitive after awhile, and for the most part, it is usually irrelevant In this case, though, it seems to have made a difference.When I finished Extremely Loud Incredibly Close, I went online to read some reviews I was surprised by what I read It seemed that just about everyone who gave their opinion on this book, whether positive or negative, commented on Foer s experimental writing st [...]

  13. Nine year old Oskar Schell finds a key among his dead father s things and embarks on a quest to find the lock it fits Will Oskar Schell s quest give him the answers he s looking for Quite some time ago, I watched a fragment of the movie based on this book on a rainy day before deciding I wanted to read the book Now that I ve read it, I m not sure it was the right choice.Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is the story of Oskar Schell, a nine year old possible genius with issues whose father died [...]

  14. Maybe it goes without saying that we write differently in letters than we do in email or text Something about putting pen to paper makes a handwritten letter intimate and less imposing than electronic media We take off the tin foil hat Our mistakes are not made invisible by a backspace key, but crossed out with our own hand We reveal ourselves And letters to people we love are that much intimate and revealing, even sentimental We create something, a product, that you can hold in your hand, and [...]

  15. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is extremely sad and incredibly stylish For a thin plot, Foer was able to extend it by shifting narratives, delightful monologues, empty pages, pages with one liners, pages with black and white pictures, pages with colored pictures, pages with scribbled names, pages that look like a manuscript with editor s proofreading symbols and by several back stories Hiroshima bombing, Dresden bombing, etc That s a delicate style that I think only gifted writers can pull [...]

  16. I picked this book up two days ago to read the first page I personally think you can tell a lot about a book from the first page and was hooked I m in the middle of another book, which is a good book, but the jarring nature of the prose reeled me in The first chapter is called, What the which is exactly what I was thinking I was instantly reminded of another great book, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, where you actually experience the book as well as read it While I wouldn t wa [...]

  17. I finished this book this morning, determined to complete it before I did anything else today I wanted it to just be over I read the last 41 pages then looked at the additional 15 unnumbered pages of pictures at the end, and now I sit here rather annoyed I don t know how to communicate my disappointed sighs via text image error I really wanted to love this book It was given to me by a friend who loved it someone whose opinion I trust I didn t get around to reading it for a long time though, and [...]

  18. On top of the already devastating wreckage left from the September 11th attacks, Foer describes a bittersweet form of intergenerational pain It eventually became an unpopular albeit Oscar nominated film which days later I watched was disappointed with this is a huge deviation from his true masterwork for I suppose that one is universally great and, unlike this one, less personally divisive Everything Is Illuminated It is so radically different and almost as complex and perfect as his first work [...]

  19. Perhaps I m just stupid, but I don t get this book, nor am I really crazy about it.It s a little too hip for me, in the sense that I don t think anybody really gets what the hell Foer is trying to say, but because it s obscure everyone likes it.Or maybe I m just looking too much into the book But I found myself having to read and re read pages over and over again to make sense of it all It doesn t do it for me, but I might try to get through it one last time, mainly because I feel very guilty if [...]

  20. According to E Wilson No two persons ever read the same book I love an author that allows a story to just unfold that leaves me to draw my own conclusions I love that it wasn t just about 9 11 but also war torn Dresden and Hiroshima Well my spin is this is probably the most powerful anti war book I ve ever read The stream of consciousness writing style is the perfect choice It s lyrical and appropriate, just go with it It s not depressing in fact parts of it are really funny Then again, I d be l [...]


  22. Oskar, a thoughtful kid full of quirks and handicaps, finds a key So the journey he goes on to find its and his own place in the world should be inspiring at least But although Oskar learns all sorts of interesting things everywhere he goes, he never really makes any progress And similarly, neither does the story.Right from the start, the prose is sharp, and the characters stand out The father particularly is just as likable as can be But the story as a whole moves in too many directions without [...]

  23. Dear Kim,Thank you for making me read this, you book pushing, carney loving, skee ball fiend You were right I wish you lighter boots , always Dear Everyone Else,Let s get this out of the way first There are pictures They re intended to be clever and, at times, to clutch at your heart It s gimmicky I don t care.Granted, I read this at a time when I may have been vulnerable to schmaltz My mother had recently passed away I was on a journey, searching for the parts of her life that had been lost to [...]

  24. There are quite a few novels that you either love or hate Not so many that you can simultaneously both love AND hate To admire there s the high tide imaginative vitality of the writing to irritate the relentless contrived cutesy cutesy tugging at the heartstrings.ELIC purports to be a novel about big bangs 9 11, Hiroshima and Dresden but you might say this novel is about the consequences of over indulging feeling There s Oskar who misses his dad who dies on 9 11 and there s his grandfather who [...]

  25. I could write an endless review about this book and how amazing it is but Im not going too, because I would never want to take or giveaway anything about this book Youll want to feel every emotion this book gives off such a powerful, beautiful, and moving novel.

  26. This is a book about grief and how to deal with the loss of someone you love Oskar lost his father in 9 11 and is obviously filled with sorrow, pain and also guilt He loved his father dearly, and he doesn t feel like he have that same special connection with has mother When he one day finds a lost key of his father s, he decides to undertake the endeavour to find out what this key opens This takes him on a journey all around New York which helps him cope with the loss of his father and also open [...]
