Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Foer takes a dark subject and works in offbeat humor with puns and wordplay. But Extremely Loud pushes further with the inclusion of photographs, illustrations, and mild experiments in typography reminiscent of Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions." School Library Journal
“The parallel story lines, beautifully narrated by Ferrone and Caruso, add variety to the imaginative and captivating plot.” Publishers Weekly
