A review by _aprillllllllll
Here I Am, by Jonathan Safran Foer


"Between any two beings there is a unique, uncrossable distance, an unenterable sanctuary. Sometimes it takes the shape of aloneness. Sometimes it takes the shape of love."

Jonathan Safran Foer does it again. Creates a work of fiction that is so unbelievably real and true, that you can feel it through your chest, and limbs and fingers and bones. I rarely cry when reading books, but this one made me cry at least three times. It just cuts to the core of what is to be human: to struggle, to wrestle, to stagnate, to wait in emptiness, to love with ferocity, and to be too vulnerable to sustain that love. I don't know. I can't put it into words, but somehow JSF does. It's painfully beautiful and I highly recommend it, if you're in to that sort of thing
