Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Can I tell you how much I loved this book? I didn't know they had made a movie based on the story, I only learned after being half way through when Gina shared her post. I don't think I agree with Gina though, I am not certain a movie can do this story justice (and I don't agree with some of the casting, only because it doesn't match the images in my mind).

I loved the main character, a young boy, from the start. The way his mind thinks is so like my own. It is always encouraging to read of characters that are a bit like myself. Such a creative mind, such an interesting way of thinking.

I wasn't sure where the story would lead. I liked that about the book. I wanted to keep reading.

Read this one. Before you see the movie.
