User Review  - Anna Packard - Goodreads

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is one of my all-time favorite books so I was eager for this one! While I didn't love it as much as EL&IC it was a powerful read. Hillarious in parts and gutwrenching sad in others. I loved the narrators. His writing is so creative! Read full review

User Review  - Matthew Metzdorf - Goodreads

Overall a pretty good book. At times it feels a little forced and self-indulgent, but I think this can be chalked up to a precocious young writer attempting to find his voice in his first novel. For ... Read full review

I saw the movie first. I read this using audible. I tend to think that you can get things out of it best by using all mediums - video, audio, and the written word. This partially about culture shock ... Read full review

User Review  - Gary Letham - Goodreads

I read this book on the strength of the wonderful film Liev Schreiber adaptation. Surprisingly the film only covers a very small part of the narrative of the book. That said it does capture the spirit ... Read full review
