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


This is an EPIC tale in narrative scope and sheer page length. An absurd premise, but incredibly human story. I had to stop reading and take a break at some parts because I think Foer captured those dark, hidden, human, and heartbreaking feelings and insecurities that we all have in our families, friendships, and partnerships/marriages. I re-read and underlined those parts (which were all in beautiful prose, of course). I was given this as a gift and I'm not even a huge Foer fan, but I loved it. I think you would enjoy it even more if you were a fan.
