Unfortunately I read 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close' shortly before starting this, so my initial thought was "Ho-hum..." Basically the same style: small child on strange journey through a New York populated by a cast of eccentric characters, to discover some old family mystery etc etc.
Of course there are the obligatory pages that contain
for effect and there is a mild feeling of satisfaction when one gets to the end and discovers who is connected to whom and how. However, if you have read one of these books you will either love the other one, or hate it because of the feeling of deja vu.
I thought it was nice but not brilliant, it goes on the short list of books I would not read again (although, to be honest, I have already forgotten some details of the plot.) A pleasant read!
