I did not care for this book I gave it two shots, once reading it and once listening to it and I could not get into it. I did not like the voice of the ESL narrator - Alex. ( )

This was hard to hear because the subject matter is painful. The narrators were excellent.

The movie was about half of the book. There is the sotry of the journey of Alex, his grandfather and Jonathon. (This is the movie) and there is the novel that Jonathon is writing. The book switches back and forth between them. This is not my favorite literary technique.

Eventually, it does work for this. ( )

Humoristisch en creatief, maar het lezen zal wel even voortduren. 302 blz. dacht ik even tussendoor te doen..

Het is amusant, maar tussen gein van heden en verleden hoor je de ernst. Sjetl. Je komt steeds meer te weten. schrijnend met mooie momenten, relativering, banaliteiten, mazzel, wijsheden. Wat is leven anders?

It's amusing, but between gein (banter) of past and present you hear the seriousness. Sjetl. You find out more and more. poignant with beautiful moments, perspectives, banalities, mazzel, wisdom. What else is life?

Zoektocht van drie dagen is als poging autobiografisch, zelf niks gevonden. . ontwerp/ draft. Geschreven in 10 weken in Praag, een paar jaar een edible versie geschaafd. 'my experiences took the form of a book'. 'I never had the idea that it was a story i had to tell'. - it was an activity I had to do, like the beaver had to use his teeth to keep them short'. In hoge concentratie, in heel alles opnemend bewustzijn, alles was belangrijk. ( creatief heb ik heel soms gehad, overal gedachten over, wat je maar ziet. zich toe gezet) . Dit is i.p.v. vertellen aan vrienden.
Commitment to the vulnerable.
Twee perspectieven, er is geen definitieve versie, waarheid. Ieder ziet anders. Je kunt ook dingen op verschillende manieren beschrijven. Dat wat er letterlijk gebeurt en wat dat teweeg brengt in jezelf, 2e is dit boek. Retelling, more than reference story.
Titel:- op het jaarfeest , everybody is proclaiming his existance by love then, in Trachimbrod verlicht als Dublin op St. Patricks day.
- Illumination: uncovering Obscure -> 'Clear , in a way that happens but the clarity is not what we thought it was.
Dedication: Simply and Impossibly': simpel, jouw levensverhaal geven. His genetic code equivalent of this creative version. Impossible omdat woorden daar toch tekort schieten. 'I will never get there' (dat wat je voor ogen staat met kunst bereiken, lukt niet, altijd er dichterbij proberen te komen). Impossble: omdat deel van familie aan wie hij het wil geven niet meer leeft; als dankbaarheid van ene generatie aan de ander.
Lezers herkennen zich in het verhaal, in hoofdpersonages. Beller, 35-jarige afro-america,n ook: de wereld is voor J Safran Foer kleiner geworden.
Jonathan Safran Foer begins as hero and Alex as looser, in the end omgekeerd. Nothing is fixed. Ook Jew gentile niet. Mensen/ plaatsen veranderen ook van naam. en dan wat blurbers. ( )

Love love love the writing. Half of the book is written in a type of broken English that was really wonderful, but there was a lot of insinuations and hinting at things that became confusing especially towards the end. For example there would be reference to a rape and it was hard to tell if it was a overly descriptive figure of speech, or a real event. But overall fun inventive book that makes me love the English language and my thesaurus. ( )

Review originally posted at Dangerously Cold Tea

I'm not sure what I was expecting coming into this novel. All I had known of it before hand was: there was a movie adaptation with Elijah Wood; the author studied writing under Joyce Carol Oates; something about Nazis and World War Two; BIG HONKING GLASSES. In a way, I'm glad I didn't have much to color my viewpoint before reading and so was able to approach the novel with an open mind.

The novel Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer follows a young man, also named Jonathan Safran Foer, who is looking for the woman who saved his grandmother's life from the Nazis during World War Two. To travel through Ukraine, he hires translator Alex Perchov, who brings along his grandfather and their dog, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jr. (grandfather's "seeing-eye bitch" --- did I mention they make the blind old man drive them everywhere?). Running alongside Alex's narrative of their journey is a series of letters between Alex and Jonathan that take place after the story, as well as a separate narrative that tells the story of the town of Trachimbrod and traces Jonathan's heritage all the way to his grandparents.

You'd be forgiven if you thought the main protagonist of the novel was the wandering writer Jonathan; honestly, I believe the true main character of Foer's work is the translator Alexander. From his comically improper and straightforward English, Alex is the one who drops the most thought-provoking ideas. He believes that if you change the fiction, you can change the facts themselves. Throughout his letters to Jonathan, Alex is begging the man to make the story happier --- saying things like "Why can't you let so-and-so be happy? Why can't you change the story to keep them together?" --- as if Jonathan has the power to change lives. Is it any wonder Alex spends most of the book referring to Jonathan as The Hero? Always asking Jonathan of Western life, asking him to change crucial details in his narrative --- his inflated view of Western culture has lifted his view of the writer to an almost deity-like status.

(Also, some of Alex's improper and outright bawdy English is downright hilarious. His narrative brings a much-needed humorous light to a darkly-edged story of lies and betrayal in a Jewish shtetl from years ago.)

The book itself is a wonderful twist-up of dark humor and a powerful storytelling style infused with magical realism and insight into the human condition. Actually, let's cut from the hubris infected literary phraseology and get to the nitty gritty: Everything is Illuminated is an excellent story, written in an attention-pulling manner that will keep any reader glued to the page for hours on end. Mister Foer makes you care about every character in the cast, makes you interested enough to become hungry for more details about them until you are like the fictional Jonathan, searching for the answers about the many mysteries swirling around the seemingly-innocent Trachimbrod.

I am glad I gave this novel a chance; Jonathan Safran Foer is definitely an author whose works I'll be looking out for in the near future. ( )
