Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer * I liked Oskar, his googolplex questions and inventions, his feelings which are always extreme; he either gets heavy boots or feels like 100 dollars.

* The part that moved me most was the record Oskar played at school, the interview with the Hiroshima survivor, talking about his daughter.

* Despite the sad subject, the book is quite amusing and I really liked that.

* Oskar makes incredibly cool friends and acquaintances.

* I cannot exactly relate to 9/11. I feel really sorry for all the losses but I know one had to be there or lose someone then in order to feel "the right way". Or maybe it's just me.

Peter Gabriel has an excellent song, called I Grieve. He performed it on Larry King Weekend 9/11 tribute show >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbItz_NAIEs

Although the beginning is quite sad, please remember
Life carries on
In the people I meet
In everyone that's out on the street
In all the dogs and cats
In the flies and rats
In the rot and the rust
In the ashes and the dust
Life carries on and on
