He flips the pages prematurely to get the “hidden” oradulo story, breaking the rules of literature by traversing through the main plot itself There is the usual blend of a narrator getting over some big personal tragedy, reflections on the power of language writing especially in this caserecurring coincidences, a female love interest in trouble, etc. Return to Book Page.

I got no satisfaction or any feelings for that matter xel all from this. 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 to set the whole narrative up instead of an organic development within the story. Probably it was because of the many footnotes that explain certain events and characters Cosa ho appena letto?

I’d have liked this book to be longer and it easily could have beenbut overall it was a fantastic read which piqued my interest in Auster enough for me to go dell on to another of his books – The New York Trilogy – after finishing it.


Heb het boek wel uitgelezen, maar het ging dus niet van harte. Maybe I’m too dense to really get the underlying substance of this book, but believe me, I was looking for it. I wasn’t out looking for an Auster book, I was just browsing at the library, but when I spotted it, the intriguing summary and that aster were good enough nochhe me.

I asked him for his opinion about that novel, and he said that if I hadn’t read any of Paul Auster’s work, then he doesn’t suggest I begin with that.

La Noche Del Oraculo

Auster’s favourite theme is randomness, chance. Just a sparkle of mystery.

Da un lato, la storia privata di Sidney e del suo matrimonio con la moglie Grace e dall’altro quella nocye Sidney scrittore e delle varie vicende che si intrecciano e prendono forma.

I could buy arguments that that was the author’s intention, but it came off as sloppy writing. Ultimately my biggest problem is just that it feels like the book is trying to set up Sidney as a likeable, noceh, blameless kind of character, and he was none of those to me.

Fiction is interspersed with facts. Paperbackpages.

The late arrival of Jacob Trause, the truant son of Syney’s mentor John Trause, and his suddden but drastic impact on the course of the narrative, pushes the concept of “chance” a bit too far.

La Noche del Oraculo : Paul Auster :

Yes, it worked for me. Open Preview See a Problem? But this was this most irritating yet, since he recycled a major plot point from one of his wife’s books!

For all the urban mysticism, the disambiguation folding back on itself, the necessary clarity of prose, the deft straddling of psychological nuance and the conveyance of time and perception relative to existence, I’m none the wiser.

In fairness to an author I respect a great deal, I should note that this book may have been more heavily allusive than I realized oracylo that my ignorance interfered with my appreciation.

I can appreciate the message, but there were too many threads in praculo book that went nowhere. Overall, I didn’t enjoy this novel. But all things being equal, I mainly liked it. It is also ogaculo good study on plotting, for Auster weaves plot within plot in his embedded stories – quite deftly, it seems.
