Overall customer rating: 3.601

Interesting, but ...

by KKaren on Mar 22, 2012

I rate this book a "fair +"; not quite good. Interesting concepts and overall narrative. Heart rending journey of a young boy dealing with 9/11 in some ways all alone, with only his boyish perspective to help him sort things out. Positives: understanding perspectives, thought processes of the young ... More

lousy

by linda d on Jan 12, 2012

I did not like this book at all. It was extremely gimmicky & incredibly disjointed. There was nothing I liked about it nor did my book club & I cannot imagine how they can make a movie about it unless they completely rewrite it. More

Awesome novel

by Mando on Jan 11, 2008

I honestly believe Foer to be one of the English language's next great writers. Everything is Illuminated proved that, and Extremely Loud does its part to affirm his great talent. The story is about a young boy who's father was killed in the 9/11 attack, and his journey throughout New York City to ... More

Brilliant, sad masterpiece

by greebs on May 10, 2007

The book is a story about Oskar Schell, a 9-year old whose father was killed on 9/11. Schell is a precocious, intelligent child and also one who has been crushed by his loss. He refers to his sadness as ?heavy boots,? and he wears them often. The story is also framed by Oskar?s grandparents ? his ... More

READ THIS!

by mm41 on Apr 3, 2007

Jonathan Safran Foer's novel about a young boy named Oscar dealing with a loss in the wake of 9/11 explores much more than this present day event. The novel's twists and turns through Oscar's adventures around NYC and deep histories spanning generations make this book one that you can't put down. It ... More
