I started this book quite sometime back, maybe half a year ago? Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close is written by Jonathan Safran Foer, the same man who wrote Everything is Illuminated which I have no read. It is a very touching book written mainly in the perspective of a little boy, Oskar. Depending on the chapter it is also "written" by others, but you can read for yourself. In the end the book leaves you with very heavy boots, but how many books out there can really leave you feeling such an emotional response? My verdict 5 out of 5.
