While I still believe Auster to be an amazing story teller, this story was only mildly interesting. And why did he follow Mr Chang, and how did he loose the manuscript.

La Noche Del Oraculo

Het idee van een boek in een boek, een schrijver die schrijft over een schrijver en een manuscript waar hij zich maar orqculo van kan losweken, pa op zich interessant, maar ik raakte op den duur verveeld.

Also if the footnote stretches for more than three pages and is running as a sort of contemporaneous commentary then it’s probably worth just scrapping the footnotes and putting all the information into the main text It felt like reading Salman Rushdie with annoying and irritating people.

Probably it was because of the many footnotes that explain certain events and characters I suppose I won’t put 4 3 2 1 on my reading list. Want to Read Currently Fel Read.

Oracle Night by Paul Auster

The Best Books of I like this book because it deals with the Auster’s favourite theme is randomness, chance. Il nulla, vabe va facciamoci una risata ahah. But the story Orr writes and his own life intertwine and therein lies yet another part of Auster’s story.

Many things happen to him but WHY? We use cookies to give you the best possible experience. But Auster doesn’t seem all that committed to really diving into it, and by the end of the book it felt like little more than a forgotten pretext nodhe set the whole narrative up instead of an organic development within the story. What I also really liked about this novel is it stimulated my own thinking about a number of themes including feeling trapped o, the day day jobthe fantasy of walking away from it all flitcraft and the realization that without any integrated change, you’ll repeat the same pattern, etc.


This is not a austef waiting to be solved, or a challenge, or somewhere to find solidity.

Oct 29, Fabian rated it really liked it. It was a depressed story all over the place and I almost felt as if it was just written with no preparations in one sitting, so Ddl giving it 2 stars.

Feb 15, Jeremy added it Shelves: The author successfully wrapped up things and tied everything together, providing a plausible ending. The ending nche profoundly dissappointing, and for such a gripping start, it makes it the more frustrating experience.

There were some stories that didn’t have an ending: Several months into his recovery from a near-fatal illness, novelist Sidney Orr enters a stationery shop in Brooklyn and buys a blue notebook.

One guy almost got killed by a falling concrete gargoyle, and because of that decides to drop everything and fly out to Kansas City and change careers. I really liked what the author did with the story he was writing in the notebook, and how it ended up.

Through the entire story I had the feeling I was on the verge of stumbling on the meat of it, but it never happened. For all it’s semi-flat characters and unfortunately unwarranted complexity, it’s still an entertaining read.

La noche del orĂ¡culo by Paul Auster (2 star ratings)

I’d expect that kind of weak stuff from someone’s first novel, not their umpteenth. But that’s not enough, I still think it’s an almost-useless book, also the writing is no big deal. Then he lays it down flat so that there is no point of orientation, we can’t make out the bottom from the top, but we can glide over its slippery surface taking great care and occasionally glance down at some weird reflection.

I got no satisfaction or any feelings for that matter at all from this. Auster writes brooding stories, there’s always something below the surface and to find out what’s going on is a challenge In einem Bungalow-Hostel auf den Philippinen gefunden und beinahe verschlungen. Auster’s favourite theme is randomness, chance. Until, again, some reveals later in the novel that complicate her character, she’s more a fantasy than anything oradulo the way Sidney writes about their sex life and her personality makes me cringe in a way that I really don’t feel like Auster meant me to cringe.


We’re featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book. However, only the main story line heads towards any type of conclusion in ddel book, while the others stall midway, again, demonstrating randomness, perhaps? But just because there are coincidental and random things one encounters on a daily basis, doesn’t mean that reason is futile.

That the book promises to go somewhere, doesn’t, and then really underdelivers appears to be most of the point eel it’s hard to care. I can appreciate the message, but there were too many threads in this book that went nowhere.

Auster, you love him or you hate him. Ama mavi neyin simgesidir? During the first pages or so I thought it was a useless book, I was persistent just ddl exercise reading in English.

I’m not sure what to think about this book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Then what is left is something like the strata of rock, each layer signifying different eras in soil but here the unknowable passage we take from our point of view, fractured, subjective and incomplete. I returned to Auster having been disappointed by boche book since Timbuktu. No, I take that back.

In any case, I forgot about it until I was back in Berlin, in the house of a friend, when I saw his book Hmm, they say that you either love or hate Paul Auster’s works. And then I’ll pout about it until I trick myself into reading something else by him, and auser.
