EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE

by | Read by Jeff Woodman, Richard Ferrone, Barbara Caruso

Fiction • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

This clever and moving novel of interconnected stories is told--and narrated--in three voices: Jeff Woodman is Oskar Schell, from whose perspective the majority of the story is told; Richard Ferrone is his grandfather, Thomas; and Barbara Caruso is his grandmother. The three-voice performance is very effective, but Jeff Woodman is the standout, utterly convincing as precocious 9-year-old Oskar, who is searching for answers about his father's death in the 9/11 World Trade Center attack. The novel is alternately harrowing and hilarious, as much a meditation on life and loss as a collective biography of the individuals who make up New York City. Compelling listening. J.M.D. 2006 Audie Award Finalist © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
