Becoming illuminated

Surprisingly i am greatly enjoying reading Everything is Illuminated this time around. The multi stranded narrative is actually capturing my attention more and seems much easier to follow. I don’t know what’s different this time around. Am I different? Am I simply more open to magically threaded story telling side by side with standard narrative? Am I just having more fun? Or maybe I matured as a reader, had more experience with fantastical writing and thusly became more open to a mixture of styles and narratives. I almost feel like I am catching more in the story than I did on my first few reads, getting the symbolism and parallels more. I certainly hear the voices of the characters in my mind when I read, except of course they are the voices from the movie. 😀
