Review: Everything Is Illuminated

User Review  - David - Goodreads

I really enjoyed reading this book because of the conflict and I also really liked how Alex would not give up to find the woman that his grandfather told him about. In the book "Everything Is ... Read full review

User Review  - Heidi - Goodreads

The magical and mysterious visions of Jonathan's family history mixed with the humorous and raw interpretations of Sasha's current reality bridge the past and present in this novel and make this story both fantastic and tragic.
