|Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: A Novel
Jonathan Safran Foer
This is the lowest level until now on Kindle for this wonderful novel. I highly recommend it. Also you may want to consider reading Foer’s debut novel “Everything is Illuminated” which is listed under 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die article I posted before.
“Energetic, inventive, and ambitious . . . an uplifting myth born of the sorrows of 9/11″ — Boston Globe“Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a miracle, a daybreak, a man on the moon. It’s so impeccably imagined, so courageously executed, so everlastingly moving and fine.” — Baltimore Sun“A funny, wise, deeply compassionate novel that will renew readers’ faith that the right book at the right time still has the power to change the world.” — O, The Oprah Magazine
“Foer is definitely a new sort of literary warrior — virtuosic, visionary, ingenious, hilarious, heartbreaking. He brings an astonishing array of firepower to the page.” — Village Voice
Soon to be a major motion picture, starring Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, and more
Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history.
Nine-year-old Oskar Schell has embarked on an urgent, secret mission that will take him through the five boroughs of New York. His goal is to find the lock that matches a mysterious key that belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11. This seemingly impossible task will bring Oskar into contact with survivors of all sorts on an exhilarating, affecting, often hilarious, and ultimately healing journey.
