I felt, that night, on that stage, under that skull, incredibly close to everything in the universe, but also extremely alone.
I wondered, for the first time in my life, if life was worth all the work it took to live.
What exactly made it worth it? What’s so horrible about being dead forever, and not feeling anything, and not even dreaming? What’s so great about feeling and dreaming?
~ Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
Very touching and moving book but also one of the saddest I ever read
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
