Great film with a great soundtrack. The book sounds quite different so does anyone know both?
Great when Alex is around, embarrasing when Jo'fan is telling his tale about people having sex through a hole in the wall.
Jonathan is practically not there in the film. Is that because Alex's character is so much more interesting than his?
Maybe I'll skip the book, then. :D
The film was... okay, but made the mistake of being a bit Borat-like.
- love the the cinematography in it. I haven't read the book, BUT...
I have read Jonathan Foer Safran's other book, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and it's magnificent. One of my favourite books of ever. I don't own it anymore annoyingly, I gave it away to a lady I was seeing you see. Never do this with your favourtie books.
Book is wonderful- really rare example of a perfectly charming, amusing idiolouge, linguistically inventive and hugely enjoyable. also agree with Ymmit about Extremely Loud.... beautiful book x
Sort of like a stupid idealogue?
