Everything Is Illuminated

summary Everything Is Illuminated ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF read & download ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Jonathan Safran Foer free read Everything Is Illuminated With only a yellowing photograph in hand a young man also named Jonathan Safran Foer sets out to find the woman who may or may not have saved his grandfather. I watched the movie of this first and loved it It was basically a movie about cultural misunderstanding and how people can be cruel without really knowing it It is a story about what happens when you put an American and someone born out of the Soviet era in the same room and try to make them explain to one another why the other one thinks the way they do In a word hilariousAfter reading the book I still like the movie but it seems obvious to me that the filmmakers missed the point entirely The book while still a hilarious exploration of an American immersed in post Soviet culture is so much deeper and weirderThe story is sort of about the author Jonathan Safran Foer He is an aspiring writer in his early 20s who travels to Ukraine to try to find the small Jewish village of Trachimbrod where his grandfather grew up and to find the woman who helped him escape the Nazis during the war He speaks no Ukrainian or Russian and his only maps of the area are 60 years old so he enlists the help of Alexander an Odessa native of about the same age his blind grandfather who acts as their driver if you have read any modern Russian literature you will understand not to uestion this kind of thing and their deranged seeing eye bitch Sammy Davis Junior JuniorHalf of the story the half on which the movie is based is ostensibly written by Alex He write in English with an accent in that I assume it was written then rewritten by looking up every third word in the thesaurus and replacing it with the least appropriate synonym This section is a humorous touching narrative touching on the nature of friendship grief and regret among other things It is accessible and easy to understandThe other half which is entirely ignored by the movie is written by Jonathan and covers the history of the village from the day it got its name in 1791 until its destruction by the Nazis in 1941 following the exploits of his ancestors All of these sections have a very surreal uality They jump around in time different eras have glimpses into the past and future Everything that happens is completely bizarre and makes no sense It explores much difficult topics such as the nature of life love and art and is in general much philosophical and harder to get your head aroundThese sections are split by letters from Alexander to Jonathan commenting on Jonathan s sections and introducing his own next sectionThe weird thing about this book is that at least for me it gets frustrating to read the author s crazy attempts at philosophy He wanders around so much it seems like he is trying to write a little mini story for every emotion he s every experienced in his entire life Normally I would discard a book like this and say Well it s a young author s overeager first attempt and he tried to cover too much However there are so many parts in Alex s letters and narrative where these things are addressed once Jonathan says something like I want to be a writer but I m not good yet and Alex asks a lot of uestions like Why do you write like this and Why did you have the characters do that The incoherence of it all becomes a part of the greater logic of the novel which in turn provides an answer to the uestion Why did Jewish people stay in Poland and Ukraine when they knew the Nazis were coming This books answer I imagine would be Because nothing anyone did in the village s 150 year history made sense why should they have done the sensible thing in 1941The book is hilarious moving and disturbing among other things I can t help but be annoyed by its weird narrative and pointless philosophical musings but given that it bathes itself in its own strangeness it raises itself up and becomes a pretty awesome book

You are burned out So you suggested to your wife that the whole family spend the weekend in a beach resort You left the house in the morning drove the whole day and arrived at the resort few hours before the sunset You dropped your things donned your beach wear went barefoot and hurriedly went straight to the shore The sand is not sugar like but the pain is bearable The wind is a bit cold and it gives you slight chills You dip your feet into the water It is still lukewarm since the sun is just about to set You start to swim Then you notice how beautiful the sun is The kaleidoscope of colors yellow orange bright orange red reddish orange It s like God s canvas spluttered with beautiful colors You feel mesmerized Sunset is always breathtaking and you find yourself staring at it perplexed and speechless You are there standing you feel the small stones piercing your soles With wet hair your wet clothes on the water drips to your skin With the afternoon sea breeze softly blowing you feel cold You feel the discomfort but you don t care You go on standing You go on staring You want to see the finality of the sunset Slowly slowly Down Down Until it s gone DarknessBut you remain standing You want to see what comes next The shore is part of the bay and you can see lights starting to flicker from the nearby island The fishermen light up the gas lamps on the boats You look up at the sky The crescent shaped moon starts to appear over at the horizon And the countless stars twinkle as if they are smiling at you The small insects start to swarm and bite you swat them with your hands You feel the stones poking your skin You start to shiver from cold But you feel happy as you have just witness an unspeakable beauty Something that we tend to ignore as we rush through our daily lives A celebration of life A miracle You feel utterly happy Blissful Joyous This is exactly how I felt reading Jonathan Safran Foer s debut novel Everything is IlluminatedAmazing
