From the moment I started reading the novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, I was drawn into the plot line. The further you get into this book you watch as the characters develop and journey through life after extreme loss. The book builds and builds up until the ending which was a big disappointment.
Even though its cliche I love to see the fairytale ending in the books or movies. That leaves the audience with a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. The majority of the book revolves around Oskar journeying through the boroughs of New York to finish a mission his dad had left him. He plans to visit every person with the last name Black in order to discover to whom a mysterious key belonged to. As a reader I felt that Oskars determined attempts had to pay off in the end, but to my disappointment the ending did not answer the questions left behind in the novel. I find this novels ending to compare with the Lost series finale. A whole five seasons worth of character development and unexpected events, to end with the audience confused and bewildered on the meaning of the show. As the reader there should be some type of satisfactory ending to a novel filled with questions.
