  • First, a brief harangue I can t help but noticing how often the word pretentious has been thrown around in the reviews for this book What a bothersome word pretentious It s a lot like the word boring, in that they both seem to fool the user into thinking that they mean something objective, when in fact they re highly subjective Nothing is inherently boring, just as nothing is inherently pretentious On the contrary, these words say a lot about the speaker than they do about the thing they re sup [...]

  • I have encountered a great many reviews that start with I don t know how to begin this review By this claim the reviewer expresses doubt, but the expression of these doubts is the immediate solution to the reviewer s predicament, making both the doubts and the claim kind of moot I was thinking of starting off this review the same way, given that this book leaves you wondering about everything, but thinking about that as an option makes it also dishonest, because I would know where to start with [...]

  • Is this three novels in one or a single one Ah, well That s four Auster novels in a row for me and, interestingly enough, they were all very much alike Oracle Night, The Glass City, Ghosts, The Locked Room It s becoming clear that Auster has adopted very interesting themes, such as the transitory nature of fiction and reality the writer s world manifested in a literal form the double He writes in free flow and non sequiturs Yeah, I will be the first one to admit that almost always his conclusion [...]

  • I think this was my first encounter with Paul Auster, a man who I met through the cult of the 1001 books to read before you die list Prior to that I was vaguely aware of Auster and his peculiar brand of love loath inciting literature which had friends alternatively raging or swooning, but had never bothered my arse to go and see what all the fuss was about Turns out I rather loved this once I had progressed beyond the first forty pages For the first forty pages I d already rather rudely pigeon h [...]

  • Further update, June 19th 2012.In response to several thoughtful comments that take issue with the nastiness of my initial review, I have come to the conclusion that the comments in question are essentially correct Please see my own response in comment 32 in the discussion And thanks to those who called me on this, apologies for my earlier vitriolic responses In general, I try to acknowledge the validity of other opinions in my reviews and comments, something I notably failed to do in this discu [...]

  • So this is the New York trilogy I ve heard so much about I m at a loss for what to say, and not in the good way I feel incredibly underwhelmed.I can t even think of too many angry witticisms It s very bland High school students who were introduced to existentialism for the first time could produce better stuff When the narrative switched back to an ordinary mystery story again, I became interested, but the rest is just profoundly dull Language has meaning, you say And you make references to oth [...]

  • Baudelaire cited by Paul Auster in City of Glass Il me semble que je serais toujours bien l o je ne suis pas In other words It seems to me that I will always be happy in the place where I am not Or, bluntly Wherever I am not is the place where I am myself Or else, taking the bull by the horns Anywhere out of the world It was a wrong number that started it, the telephone ringing three times in the dead of night, and the voice on the other end asking for someone he was not.3.5 leaning towards 4 a [...]

  • The story is not in the words it s in the struggle Paul Auster, The New York TrilogyREVIEW 1 City of GlassAn interesting PoMo novella Auster s first novel second book first of his New York Trilogy , City of Glass is simultaneously a detective novel, an exploration of the author narrative dynamic, and a treatise on language I liked parts, loved parts, and finished the book thinking the author had written something perhaps interesting than important.My favorite parts were the chapters where Auste [...]

  • Life is too short to re read a book, but someday I will give time for this one The reason is that I assumed that the book being a trilogy is composed of 3 totally unrelated stories since I read in the write up that the stories were published one at a time in a weekly magazine in the 80s However, to my surprise, at the end of the 3rd story The Locked Room which by itself was the best among the 3 it was revealed that the detective looking for Fanshawe was the main character in the first story, The [...]

  • Our lives carry us along in ways we cannot control, and almost nothing stays with us It dies when we do, and death is something that happens to us every day.Qu gran libro Mi primero de Auster y sin dudas no ser el ltimo En ocasiones un poco pesado, en muchas otras se estanca, pero es innegable que esta obra es brillante Personajes excelsamente desarrollados, v vidas descripciones y tramas desbordantes de locura y mentes extraviadas buscando un hogar.Con una prosa soberbia, este autor me llev de [...]

  • Consummate MetafictionIf you re interested in reading just one example of metafiction, I can t think of any better work than The New York Trilogy except perhaps Thomas Pynchon s The Crying of Lot 49.Paul Auster mightn t get the same accolades as other writers of post modern fiction, if only because he has built a loyal readership that doesn t depend on post modern academics and spin merchants This recognition by a non academic community may account for the lack of critical attention given to The [...]

  • Qu lectura tan amena, tan r pida estoy sacando los d as en que tuve que dejarlo por los estudios y tan conflictiva Estas tres novelas me parecieron m s una forma de problematizar la identidad y la literatura antes que un homenaje a New York a trav s de la escritura Si la ciudad puede considerarse como un espacio inquietante y en movimiento, entonces New York es un claro ejemplo Y Paul Auster aprovecha esa vor gine para mostrar tambi n c mo all nadie es quien dice ser las personas roban identidad [...]

  • I can t believe I read this all the way through, but I just kept thinking that at some point, something has to happen I was disappointed The writing is mechanical and boring It s like being told a story by someone barely interested what they are saying There is no experience to it, no stake in the characters, and like I said, nothing of note really happens When Auster makes an attempt to wrap up the disjointed and feeble plot lines after two and three quarter books of emptiness and abrupt ending [...]

  • I can t write anything about this novel This isn t some predictable, pitiful attempt to make an opening I literally can t write anything about it I ve been squeezing my mind over it since yesterday, but no Read it.

  • City of Glass 1985 , Ghosts 1986 and The Locked Room 1986 Meta as in metafiction, also metaphysics and metaphor This is fiction about fiction, writing about the writer Who s writing whom Who s the author and who s the imagined character Auster s characters aren t real people even when they are autobiographical in the sense that you might invite one over for dinner, but are real in the sense that you might imagine yourself dissolving into fiction, or have the sense that the self is fiction.These [...]

  • The New York Trilogy is an incredible anthology of mystery stories, written with an evocative voice and a completely original style.

  • O Poder da Palavra de Paul Auster em tr s romances curtos, que se interligam Um livro negro em que fic o e realidade se confundem e onde a obsess o por entender o Outro pode levar solid o extrema, loucura e perda da pr pria identidade Como n o tenho o poder de Auster para elaborar um coment rio razo vel sobre este livro nem sei se entendi todo o seu significado , selecionei, para ilustrar a ideia que retirei de cada hist ria, imagens de tr s Grandes de outra Arte que, como a Literatura, me faz p [...]

  • At times The New York Trilogy strikes me as something like the movie Saw for intellectual types People who enjoy Saw tell me that it messes with your mind, when what they really like are the suspense and the gore Readers who enjoy The New York Trilogy tell me that it challenges your perception of reality the intellectual form of the above statement , when what they really like is all of the cleverness and the self reflexive smartypants in jokes The plot and many of the images and devices in City [...]
