Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

I just got done reading this book today. It took me less than a week. That's usually how fast I read, that last book just took me FOREVER. As my first introduction to Foer, this was a good choice for me. Not my favorite style of writing, but I loved this book. There were clear, defined characters, a story (which didn't all make sense until the end) a clear beginning, middle, end. Call me boring, but I love a traditional story. It's my favorite kind of read. All in all, I loved this book. I'm excited to read another. I just have to choose between Eating Animals, and Everything is Illuminated. Thoughts?

I'm glad you loved it! You can't go wrong with either of his other books. That being said, I think you'll probably like Everything is Illuminated more than Eating Animals. Just read one really fast and then read the other!
