Review: Everything Is Illuminated

User Review  - Candace Schaddelee - Goodreads

This might be the weirdest book I have ever read. Everything about it was weird. I think it was weird because Foer broke all sorts of "writing rules". Sometimes sentences continued for pages, there ... Read full review

User Review  - Karyssa - Goodreads

I really don't have a lot to say about this book. It was good, but it wasn't my type of book- probably because I'm burnt out on this type of book. I felt as though the plot, while unique in itself ... Read full review

User Review  - Pooja Kobawala - Goodreads

I love Foer's style. He is great, but there was a lot that I skimmed through in this book. I was glued but skimmed at the same time. This is not a beach read or a light read, I found myself having to ... Read full review

User Review  - David - Goodreads

Excellent book demonstrating immense talent. There's a sentence in this novel that ends with "borscht?" that is the funniest sentence I've read in a novel in years. The ending isn't totally earned, which hurts my rating of this, but it's a great book that should not be forgotten. Read full review

I don't have extensive to write this, so auspiciously I can record my notions without traipsing distant from the path of my intentions. If I were applying my thoughts with a brush of great width, I ... Read full review

User Review  - Mike - Goodreads

I've never read a book before that does to me what this book does. The multi-genre style and non-linear plot disorient my mind, the misnomers, mistranslations, and misunderstood English idioms from ... Read full review

User Review  - Emma Refvem - Goodreads

A bit confusing at the start, but I slowly found myself adjusting to the rhythm of the 3 voices. My favorite parts were the parts from the character Jonathan (or author Jonathan?)'s perspective. I ... Read full review
