Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

I have a love-hate relationship with Jonathan Safran Foer (I don't think he's in on it), but I can't say I didn't enjoy Everything Is Illuminated. I've discussed my misgivings, largely unrelated to his actual writings, at length in the thread appropriate to that book, but here, I'm wondering if anyone's read the new one; I'd love to hear some reviews. I have a feeling I will again love the modern magical realism and find myself fighting pangs of jealousy for not writing two terrific novels by 25, but I want to be sure. The ungodly priced hardcover might be one of my tax return indulgences with enough convincing.
