"Or how he was once found on the Well-Regarded Rabbi's front lawn, bound in white string, and said he tied one around his index finger to remember something terribly important, and fearing he would forget the index finger, he tied a string around his pinky, and then one from waist to neck, and fearing he would forget this one, he tied a string from ear to tooth to scrotum to heel, and used his body to remember his body, but in the end could remember only the string."

- Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything Is Illuminated

Brilliant ! this sounds very familiar. I can't work with a diary for example, because I always forget I have one.

Is the book as good as they say it is ? ( very good )
