Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Jonathan Safran Foer, 2005
Oskar finds a key,
which leads him on a journey
through New York's boroughs

I hate to break it to you Lizzy...Jonathan Safran Foer is married and has two kids. I know that your poor heart is probably broken, because he's an incredible writer, and kind of sexy, but you will be ok. Like Oskar. You won't need to be hospitalized, although you might need a shrink. You might even have some old dude following you around everywhere and you haven't noticed yet.

I've actually never read a book with such a cool and unique style. Most pages are like you would expect, but once in a while there's a picture, or a page with one sentence, and sometimes there are pages with nothing on them at all. While a little heavy and a tad dodgy, the reading experience is intriguing and automatically enticing. (R)
