    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    Overall

    It seems like an interesting premise, but the story does not deliver. It drags on and nothing interesting ever happens. Too much repetition, you can only listen to the grandparents say "Nothing/Something" so many times before you want to stop listening. The parts where the grandparents are telling their story are the worst. Oscar is interesting and funny, the whole book should have been about him.

    All the Pretty Horses, the first volume of the Borders Trilogy, tells of young John Grady Cole, the last of a long line of Texas ranchers. Across the border Mexico beckons; beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. With two companions, he sets off on an idyllic, sometimes comic adventure, to a place where dreams are paid for in blood.

    Overall

    This book starts out really slow and I felt lost in the beginning. It does get more interesting as you listen, but overall the book was boring for me. I listen to books on long runs and I like books that keep my mind engaged. This one just couldn't hold my attention. There were many times that my mind would wander and I'd realize that I wasn't even listening. I do agree that the narrator is talented and did an exceptional job. But that wasn't enough to keep me interested in the book. By the end I was just waiting for it to be over.
