    "When I was in college, I read "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" for a literary class. I really enjoyed the book and while it has very realistic elements to it, it is a great fiction book. I used the Amazon link provided in the solution, and purchased a copy of the book. I look forward to reading it again!"

    "I was looking for a thought provoking weekend read, and this book is it. The subject matter isn't light, but it's an easy read. I finished it in two sittings. If you're looking for some fiction that gets you thinking without struggling to work through it, this book will get the job done."

    "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is not one of the best fiction books. I picked up this book because a movie was made about it. But, it wasn't what I expected. It's an okay read, but not something I would recommend."

    "I wanted to find the best books that other people have read, and received this as a result. I have to agree, this is a pretty good book. It's an emotional book, so you have to be into that. I've enjoyed it thoroughly, myself."

    "It has really bad reviews on Amazon and only under 1500 reviews, not saying it's bad. I've never read this book. However, there are arguably better books that are more popular. "

    "Ah, a new book from a man from the land of the three-named people, Jonathan Safran Foer. Like, why can't his parents just give him two names like the rest of us? But I digress. The book is incredibly well-written and made me cry at the end when Oskar (SPOILER ALERT) is killed in a terrorist attack. Make America Great Again!"

    "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is the best postmodern literary works that's events are after 9/11 and follows the life of an individual who was affected by the disaster."

    "I read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close when it first came out. Everyone was talking about Foer as a generational writing talent. I thought the book was a little cutesy. Everything is just a little too perfect and unbelievable."

    "This is an absolutely fascinating book. It is the story of a young boy who searches for the lock to the key that he found from his father, who happened to die on September 11, World Trade Center attacks in New York. This begins a scavenger hunt throughout the boroughs of New York. He finds many new people and discovers tragic information about his grandparents along the way. I recommend reading the book, even if I don't like thinking about 9/11."

    "This is an intense and good-written story. Highly recommend."

    "The book has an interesting story of a boy searching for clues about a key, the boy moves around New York looking for clues. I liked the idea of the story, but I found that the book was a fairly challenging one to read. The writing style made it hard to follow the story. I found the story to be more frustrating than it was worth reading. Although, if you are into mystery novels, you will probably enjoy reading this more than I did. "

    "This was a tough read for me. Foer is an excellent rider and the story is impeccably told; however, it is tragic, and not just one type of tragedy. Oskar's facing tragedy, his grandparents are forever marred by tragedy. It's just sad and I don't think I was ready for it."

    "This is a very different kind of book that is intriguing. It's in an odd writing style but the story is good yet tragic."
