    Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

    Kathryn Lunetta says: "Beautiful story, beautifully written."

    I've been listening to Audiobooks for over a year, and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. I listened to this back in May. The story is still with me. Leo Gursky is a character that will not soon leave you, and the narrator of his voice makes him come alive. Download now -- you won't be disappointed.

    Jonathan is a Jewish college student searching Europe for the one person he believes can explain his roots. Alex, a lover of all things American and unsurpassed butcher of the English language, is his lovable Ukrainian guide. On their quixotic quest, the two young men look for Augustine, a woman who might have saved Jonathan's grandfather from the Nazis. As past and present merge, hysterically funny moments collide with great tragedy, and an unforgettable story of one family's extraordinary history unfolds.

    J. Kovler says: "What a brilliantly original work!"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I read this book because a few reviews of Nicole Krauss' book History of Love mentioned that this book, written by her spouse, was similar. I was sorely disappointed. The two books cover similar themes, but there is simply no comparison to be made other than that. Ms. Krauss' book is beautifully written, and I cared about the protagonist from the first page on. I can't say the same for Everything is Illuminated.
