Anyone read it or care to join me in reading it?

It's Paul Auster isn't it?
Anyway, I read it a while back. Found it OK, not as engrossing a read as say the Music of Chance.

I read it at Uni but I don't remember much about it I'm afraid.

yes it is paul auster - whoops...

i am still enjoying it"

I liked it but has same theme as all Paul Auster, think he is rather monothematic really.

Just revisiting this thread as had just finished it and wanted to know if anyone has read recently and had any thoughts

Hi darrell, I find Auster annoying as there is too much of him in the books, in the way I find Martin Amis annoying!

I don't want to read books about privileged middle-aged men particularly, and all the Auster I've read had me grinding my teeth in annoyance.

Sorry- perhaps not what you wanted to hear?
