I think people tend to take Auster too seriously. Auster writes nice, interesting books, but he never was or will be a great writer. This I say despite the fact that he tries to portray himself as so ¿ using intertextuality, complex narration, brooding and "deep" imagery - and this is his problem ¿ he does it as an amateur. It seems to me that Auster made his homework and read the masters, however, not hard enough. He doesn't have what they have, or have so little of it, yet he approaches writing as if he was one, and the result is dissatisfying. He is simply not Kafka, or Henry James, or even Salman Rushdie or Coetzee. For those of you who have some background, reading serious stuff ¿ and those who've done it know what I'm talking about ¿ stay away or you'll be disappointed. For others, who would like to enjoy more than average level of writing ¿ enjoy.

Despite my better judgement on the insistent, persistent and downright annoying recommendation of a friend, I temporarily abandoned my quest to read all the classics before the age of 26 and read this novel. I was not disapointed and only scared as I seem to be in a similar position to the protagonist and inhabiting the same area of Manhattan. However the tips on eating an egg a day are invaluable. I am dying to read more Paul Auster.
