"A monumental new novel from the bestselling author of Everything Is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close In the book of Genesis, when God calls out, "Abraham!" to order him to sacrifice his son Isaac, Abraham responds, "Here I am." Later, when Isaac calls out, "My father!" to ask him why there is no animal to slaughter, Abraham responds, "Here I am." How do we fulfill our conflicting duties as father, husband, and son; wife and mother; child and adult? Jew and American? How can we claim our own identities when our lives are linked so closely to others'? These are the questions at the heart of Jonathan Safran Foer's first novel in eleven years--a work of extraordinary scope and heartbreaking intimacy. Unfolding over four tumultuous weeks, in present-day Washington, D.C., Here I Am is the story of a fracturing family in a moment of crisis. As Jacob and Julia and their three sons are forced to confront the distances between the lives they think they want and the lives they are living, a catastrophic earthquake sets in motion a quickly escalating conflict in the Middle East. At stake is the very meaning of home--and the fundamental question of how much life one can bear. Showcasing the same high-energy inventiveness, hilarious irreverence, and emotional urgency that readers and critics loved in his earlier work, Here I Am is Foer's most searching, hard-hitting, and grandly entertaining novel yet. It not only confirms Foer's stature as a dazzling literary talent but reveals a mature novelist who has fully come into his own as one of the most important writers of his generation. "--… (mais)

Jonathan Safran Foer is a SUPER polarizing author: you either love him or you hate him. I fall into the former category, though *Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close* has very much lost its shine in the past few years. This book is, for the most part, significantly more serious and adult in its focus--that is to say, it relies less on the adolescent-like humor and fantasy and more on the introspections that come after a shared life and recognition of realized and failed dreams. There are a still a few eye-rollers in here, but the second half of the book develops real poignancy, and the end did make me tear up. Will you like it? Your own mileage may vary. ( )

Ich bin enttäuscht! Bisher haben mir alle Bücher, die ich von Jonathan Safran Foer gelesen habe, sehr gefallen. Aber nach den ersten zwei sehr guten Seiten wurde es immer schlechter. ( )

A very uneven book, yet this book moved me profoundly, as few books have. I feel Foer tried to do too much with this book, but I can easily forgive him for that because of the beautiful thoughts and observations. ( )

Nel romanzo si racconta la storia di una famiglia che vive a Washington lungo un arco temporale narrante di quattro settimane. L'arrivo dei parenti da Israele innesca una serie di domande a cui tutti i membri della famiglia cercano di dare disperatamente risposta. Solamente un grande terremoto, a cui fa seguito l'invasione di Israele, riuscirà a dare un senso a quegli interrogativi (fonte: Wikipedia)

This book seems like it was written with me in mind.
It covered so many of the things I think about, but I'm not sure what it added for me, in any case it was cool to see it all in print.

It has masterful dialogue and really excellent and inward looking characters. It was very character-centric, the plot felt like a tool for developing the characters instead of the other way around. ( )

When the destruction of Israel commenced, Isaac Bloch was weighing whether to kill himself or move to the Jewish home.

People are always mistaking something that looks good for something that feels good.
One can build a perfect home, but not live in it.
The vastness of their shared life made sharing their singularity impossible.
The Jewish American response to the Holocaust was "Never forget," because there was a possibility of forgetting. In Israel, they blared the air-raid siren for two minutes, because otherwise it would never stop blaring.
Once the ritually mandated window for a burial-in-one-day had passed, there was no great rush to figure out a solution. But that's not to say that the family was indifferent to Jewish ritual. Someone had to be with the body at all times between death and burial. ... The patriarch with whom they begrudgingly skyped for seven minutes once a week was now someone they visited daily. By some uniquely Jewish magic, the transition from living to dead transformed the perpetually ignored into the never forgotten.
