Descripción del producto


"[A] dazzling literary high-wire act . . . brilliant . . . The payoff is extraordinary: a fearless, acrobatic, ultimately haunting effort to combine inspired mischief with a grasp of the unthinkable."

Booklist, ALA, Starred Review

Descripción del producto

Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. What he discovers is solace in that most human quality, imagination.
Meet Oskar Schell, an inventor, Francophile, tambourine player, Shakespearean actor, jeweler, pacifist, correspondent with Stephen Hawking and Ringo Starr. He is nine years old. And he is on an urgent, secret search through the five boroughs of New York. His mission is to find the lock that fits a mysterious key belonging to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11.
An inspired innocent, Oskar is alternately endearing, exasperating, and hilarious as he careens from Central Park to Coney Island to Harlem on his search. Along the way he is always dreaming up inventions to keep those he loves safe from harm. What about a birdseed shirt to let you fly away? What if you could actually hear everyone's heartbeat? His goal is hopeful, but the past speaks a loud warning in stories of those who've lost loved ones before. As Oskar roams New York, he encounters a motley assortment of humanity who are all survivors in their own way. He befriends a 103-year-old war reporter, a tour guide who never leaves the Empire State Building, and lovers enraptured or scorned. Ultimately, Oskar ends his journey where it began, at his father's grave. But now he is accompanied by the silent stranger who has been renting the spare room of his grandmother's apartment. They are there to dig up his father's empty coffin.

This book is honestly amazing. The subject of 9/11 is worked into the story in a very subtle way so that it isn't a documentary but an amazing story. It's about what loss does to a family, and it's extremely difficult to imagine that so many people went through this. Very emotional and real. LOVE it.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This book gave me incredibly heavy boots, but also made me feel one hundred dollars 23 de marzo de 2012
Por Kathryn H - Publicado en

If you're a fan of rabbit trails (trails that go all over the place), then this novel will be easy for you to read. If, on the other hand, you're like me, rabbit trails are just too crazy, sporadic, and all over the place. This novel is exactly that, one big giant rabbit trail, but it really works. A heartbreakingly sad story of a family that lost a member in the Twin Towers. The book focuses mostly on the son, Oskar, but also tells the story of the Grandma and the Grandfather from their point of view. Highly engaging, I found myself putting the book down often to think about the brutal honesty of emotions written down, scenes that played out from one version only to find the other version later on. This was an amazing book that still leaves me thinking, especially of the relationship between the Grandma and Grandfather. I wonder just how in the world they will manage to make the movie pull off the feelings that one has while reading this tale.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas a little bit of brilliance, a lot of cheap sentimentality 28 de octubre de 2012
Por Lori - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a frustating, at times infuriating, book by a very talented writer who mostly takes the low road by wringing cheap sentiment from the tragedy of 9/11.

The story of Oskar's odyssey to find the lock that fits the key he finds in his dad's closet is unbelievable and maudlin, and as a character he is unrealistic and annoying. He is wise and empathic way beyond the capacity of any nine-year-old. He's often smarter and more emotionally mature than the adults, but when the author doesn't want him to, he doesn't see the obvious. Adults in a cartoonish New York receive him like it's Halloween and he's a cute trick or treater.

The author can write beautifully, and he's at his best in the sections not told by the child, those written by his grandparents. Because of those sections I don't regret reading the book. They are at times brilliant, startling, honest and genuinely moving.

But the bulk of this book is cheaply sentimental and worse. I won't spoil it but something that happens at the end is cringeworthy. Even in the context of a totally unrealistic plot this scene stands out for its cartoonish qualities and bad taste.

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is mostly a maudlin mashup of unrealistic elements. It deals with other tragedies seriously, but mines the events of 9/11 for cheap sentimentality.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good book, but avoid the audiobook 1 de agosto de 2016

I enjoyed the book when I was reading it on my own. Safran Foer wrote an intricate story that centered around grief and reconnecting with those that you love. While 9/11 is an integral part of the story, he doesn't exploit it and it drives the story the very well.

I decided to use this book as part of my summer school curriculum with ninth graders. The language is a little risqué and there are some very brief sexual scenes, but nothing that would cause them any permanent damage. However, the audiobook is a different story. Whoever read for the grandmother makes my teeth itch; the kids and I would audibly groan when she began to read. She reads FAR too slow, I have no idea what kind of accent she is trying to do and she inserts inflections at inappropriate and even baffling times.

I read Extremely Loud... directly following reading The History of Love, so it is difficult not to compare the two. (See my review of the Krauss book.) I was disappointed in Extremely Loud..., especially because I loved and appreciated Foer's Everything is Illuminated. I felt the author's ego and presence too strongly in this book, and some the humor forced. Although a poignant child with a sad loss, little Oskar became tiresome after a while with his quirky vocabulary, and as the plot proceeded, Oskar's endless search into every demographic of New York looking for the key to his dead father felt contrived and repetitive. The unique and intriguing aspect of the plot was its relationship to 9/11. Whereas I couldn't put down Nicole Krauss's History of Love, and re-read it as soon as I finished it, I became distracted in this book by Foer himself and had to push myself to read on. The finish was redemptive and powerful, however, and Foer's considerable intellect and talent as a writer pulled the book together by the end.
4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Very thought-provoking journey of a boy trying to make sense out of tragedy 22 de noviembre de 2015

I bought this book after I saw that it was banned and after reading the synopsis. I thought it would be unlike anything I had read and I was right. I really enjoyed the way it was written -- the method kept me engaged and made my brain do some work, plus I like "things" that take creative, out-of-the-box approaches, and this was definitely one of those. Up until this time, I had not given much deep thought to the Twin Towers tragedy of 9/11/01 -- not because I don't care, but because I'm an empath and it bothered me too much. However, this story gave me a different perspective, one I have been searching for in other books -- that of the survivors of tragedies: what people go through after a loved one has died. To date, I have found that in only one book by Joan Didion. Of course, I hear anecdotes but I'd like to know what people go through, especially in tragedies that happen on vacations: how does one go from a joyous excursion to going back to a hotel room alone, packing up suitcases, etc., etc. Anyway, I'm getting away from my review. I don't know why this book was banned. It was a very good read!
