I listened to Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close because I wanted to see the movie. It was an interesting book but in the end i found it sad and I am not sure that I am glad I read it. There are parts I loved but it was sad enough, for me, that I decided not to see the movie after all. Maybe it was exceptionally sad for me cause I lived through Sept 11 in new york but either way.
If sad doesn’t bother you, it is a beautiful book.
