Extremely Loud...

...and Incredibly Close.

What a weird book.  The premise seemed so interesting - young boy mourning his father's death (during 9/11) by going on an adventure throughout New York City.  However, there was also a lot of post-modern artsy business going on in this book too.  At one point, while reading beside Justin, he looked over and practically yelled at me "Did you do THAT to your BOOK?"  There were pages upon pages of text underlined and circled in red.  The reason why Justin was so shocked was because of how careful I am with my books.  I don't even like lending my books to him as he will inevitably break the spine and dog-ear all the pages.

That was just one of the unusual absurdities in this book that you will need to interpret for yourself as you read it. If you choose to.

I'll still watch the movie but only because Tom Hanks is involved with it - don't say I didn't warn you.  Keep in mind that the cover of this book makes no sense as the boy will only wear white.

By the way, what the heck happened to my blogger interface??  Why can't programs just stay the same forever?!  I hate change...
