    Auster is a living genius...

    I bought this book because I like Paul Auster and I was looking for a good book to take with me on a plane. I had no idea what was waiting for me. Once again, Auster's story is so plausible and thoroughly detailed that you can't help but think it to be true. Sachs becomes known to all of us by the end of the book - exactly Auster's, and Peter's, intention. Anyone who has had a close friend - one whose commitment and responsibilities are questionable at times - should read this book. I learned about myself. As for Auster, he is a master storyteller, and he is doing exactly what he should be doing in this world.

    A cool book

    My dad found this book when I was 8. I kept the book for some reason. Just this summer I picked it up and actually read it. And I have to say that I should have read it a long time ago, but I am glad that I have such a gem in my bookshelf.

    Paul Auster writes another amazing book

    I'm a ninth grade student and I've just begun to read Auster. His style is amazing and I find that the writing is intellectual and interesting while at the same time being imaginative and meaningful as well. So far I've only read a handful of his books but so far they've failed to disappoint me. Woo hoo, go Paul Auster!

    Frighteningly Real

    In Leviathan, Auster relates the story of a deep and unbreakable friendship between two men whose tumultuous lives mercilessly toss them about in a storm of happiness and hardships. It demonstrates with frightening plausibility that a string of seemingly random events can indeed end with a tragic climax. With the skill of somebody who writes what he knows, Auster creates characters so REAL that you feel like you've known them all of your life.
