Everything is Illuminated.
I finished Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer more than a week ago and have simply been a slacker on posting about it. This, friends, is ridiculous because now it means I have not as much to say on it and no patience to write about it. Suffice to say, great exercise is writing and effectively forcing native English speakers to translate their own language in their head with narrator Alex’s writing. Good dual stories, but weak ending. Still, for a first novel, I was pretty impressed, and I would recommend the book. I would not recommend a car ride with Sammy Davis Junior Junior.
