Recent Reads: A Review in Three Words

Title:  Girl With a Pearl Earring
Author: Tracy Chevalier
Pages:  233
Rating: 2/5

Anti-Climatic. Disappointing, yet informative.


Title: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
Pages: 326
Rating: 5/5

Heart-Felt. Touching. Delicious.  I could go so much more into details about how I feel about this, but is so much better reviewed here, and here.

I am THRILLED that you loved Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. Mom is reading it right now and I'm nervous to see what she thinks (so far I think good).

Delicious. I love that. I could re-read it right now I love it so much.

Ever since I read Trish's review on Extremely Loud, I have been wanting to read it. Glad you liked it, too! I need to get myself to the bookstore.

I really like EL&IC too. Just finished last week, now on to the next book!

Thank you so much! Wow. It is such a great book. I think I liked Girl with Pearl Earring a bit more than you but I don't remember! (ha?) :)
