Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
I just finished reading this book for book club. It's the best new fiction I've read in a while. The author has a very original style. The story follows a 9 year-old boy on his quest to find information about his deceased father. The boy is brilliant, a little on the strange side, and very endearing. The major theme of the book is dealing with loss, but the author makes loss seem beatifuly tragic.
