Sometimes a Book Club needs to keep things fresh by reading something out of their comfort zone.
"If you only read what everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking" Haruki Murakami
“Your memory is a monster; you forget - it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you - and summons them to your recall with will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!”
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is a fantastic book. It is heartfelt and transcends an incident that occurred on our American soil. I have not seen the movie, so I cannot compare. The book is one that I would recommend in a heartbeat!
