8. Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close: A Novel by Jonathan Safran Foer


I was looking for something really different from No Country For Old Men, and found it in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I'd seen the reviews for this book, but I had been wary of it--I was expecting lots of hipsterism and New Lit Tomfoolery. But after reading the review on Large-Hearted Boy I gave it a shot, and it absolutely crushed me.

I don't think any other book has made me contemplate my own mortality as much. And it has forced me to think about what Harper or I would do if one of us died. It really threw me, and I loved it.
