Book Report: Everything is Illuminated
However, after entirely too long, I have finished Everything is Illuminated by the formidable and unbelievably self-centered Jonathan Safran Foer. Again, one of the had never, but knew I had to read books from my list, Everything is Illuminated didn't disappoint me and was worth the wait.
I did not know the story at all. I did not even know that the book was made into a movie, which I can't imagine does the book justice.
I enjoyed this book, Nazis, Jew killings and all. It was lyrically written, both in the truly English sections and in the broke, Russian-English sections. The stories were woven expertly and I would read another Safran Foer book, as long as it was not about being a vegetarian.
5 out of 5 Stars.
