Summary:

Jonathan Safran Foer emerged as one of the most original writers of his generation with his best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated. Now, with humor, tenderness, and awe, he confronts the traumas of our recent history. Nine-year-old Oskar Schell has embarked on an urgent, secret mission that will take him through the five boroughs of New York. His goal is to find the lock that matches a mysterious key that belonged to his father, who died in the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11. This seemingly impossible task will bring Oskar into contact with survivors of all sorts on an exhilarating, affecting, often hilarious, and ultimately healing journey.

    The narration of this was incredible. I'm so glad I listened to it! I also recommend having a physical copy of the book because somethings are fun and useful to see, such as the photographs throughout the book - but I am so glad I listened to this. It really enhanced the experience. Very moving story, very heartfelt but not overdone. Excellent father-son and overall family story.

    I read this book a long time ago and remembered loving it but I couldn’t fully remember why. Listening to it truly explained why. The depth and complexity of emotion is stunning and the narration helps give the story justice. Definitely worth the listen.

    It was the narration of this book that drew me in and held me. The tangle of lives and the history that unfolds out of their stories is compelling and so very artfully done. I love the way Foer is able to capture the perspectives of a 9 year old, an elderly gentleman and an aging grandmother equally well. Remarkable book.
