Loved it, cried too. His first book was really difficult to plow through but his brilliance was obviously there. I'm not sure I'd recommend the first one. I would recommend reading Nicolaus Kraus, his wife's book, The History of Love. Interesting how they both intertwine their stories.

Ben Barren

His first book - Everything is Illuminated - is in my top 3 ever, beaten only by Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, the best of the new breed, and maybe the Corrections by Johnathan Franzen, but actually I would put it ahead of The Corrections, so its number 2. Zadie Smith is also great.

Im about to buy Foer's new one you review and his wife's new book is also supposedly amazing, what a couple.
