Everything Is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer


Triple narratives, on three different time-spans, multiple narrators, plus extracts from an intratextual dictionary and even from a play... Complex and rich, particularly for a first novel!

Generally speaking, I tend to find pretentiousness extremely tedious.
When accompanied by extraordinary talent, however, it becomes rather refreshing to have someone dare be serious. Go figure.
