I liked what I read of the story "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close." It was not really easy to keep up with it at the beginning because it switched narrators. The second part was more engaging and easier to understand. I think that Oskar is a really smart child and I admire him his determination. Still, it was a little creepy that they went to the cemetery and dug up his father's grave (even though it was empty). I was surprised to find out that he had been so close to his grandfather. Overall I enjoyed the story.
