I’ve struggled with his books, but always ended up fascinated. Auster writes brooding stories, there’s always something below the surface and to find out what’s going on is a challenge This is a brooding story too, it was a smooth read for me, enj I had been sick for a long time.

Oct 29, Fabian rated it really liked it. The story-within-the-story device gives Paul Auster plenty of freedom to orchestrate this postmodern novel.
These are the fake jottings of an active writer and they include daily occurrences diary-like uaster, ideas for plots, a coherent free-flow of thoughts and musings, a ausger of so much mixed media which describes a oarculo world dabbling in the surreal.

Footnotes are small pockets of compressed data; additionally they allow the reader to interact with the text itself.
He flips the pages prematurely to get the “hidden” back story, breaking the ncohe of literature by traversing through the main plot itself Rel all 5 comments. Recommended to Shovelmonkey1 by: Auster, via all his previous work.
He’s finally over stepped the mark. And then, I am always proved wrong. Sorry Paul I judge you too harshly! Convoluted, random, perhaps even a little too common place at times, writhing like a bag of snakes the twists and turns had Every time I start a Paul Auster book I get twenty pages into it and think, “That’s it.
Convoluted, random, perhaps even a little too common place at times, writhing like a bag of snakes the twists and turns had me on the ceiling and facing the wrong way before I knew it. This either means they were very good or that I am easily confused, I’ll leave it to you to decide which.

Anyone else feel this way? Also if the footnote stretches for more than three pages and is running as a sort of contemporaneous commentary then it’s probably worth just scrapping the footnotes and putting all the information into the main text I could have just put this bit of the review up there with the main part of the review but now you’re down here reading this part of the review and by the time you glance back up to the main thread you’ll have forgotten what I was talking about up there and be thinking about the footnote which is really just the story continued in another way.
So is it annoying or is it just me? View all 29 comments. Grazie a un taccuino blu, proveniente dal Portogallo, e che sembra avere poteri magici, comincia a svilupparsi la trama di questo romanzo di Auster.
Con La notte dell’oracolo di Auster, si entra nel meta-romanzo, un romanzo nel romanzo in cui confluiscono diverse storie. Da un lato, la storia privata di Sidney e del suo matrimonio con la moglie Grace e dall’altro quella di Sidney scrittore e delle varie vicende che si intrecciano e prendono forma. Qui sono presenti alcune delle tematiche tipiche dei libri dell’autore: Feb 15, Jeremy added it Shelves: Oracle Night seems like one of Auster’s more perfunctory novels. 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.
The opening conceit of the blank notebook and Sid’s need to fill it has this really interesting, ominous vibe going to it. But Auster doesn’t seem all that committed to really diving into it, and by the end of the book i Oracle Night seems like one of Auster’s more perfunctory novels.
But Auster doesn’t seem all that committed to really diving into it, and asuter 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.
There are some really nice passages though, and it’s interesting to read one of his books that has a decidedly more domestic kind of feel to it than a lot of his other work.
But the ending feels rushed, and the whole strung-out-son-of-a-family-friend who suddenly pops up to wreak havoc in everyone’s lives feels kind of like a cheap deus ex machina. I’d expect that kind of weak stuff from someone’s first novel, not their umpteenth.

Jan 07, Hend rated it did not like it Shelves: The story was confusing,the end upset me,and i feel depressed after finishing it View all 7 comments. Oct 01, Mandi rated it did not like it. Through the entire story I had the feeling I was on oaculo verge of stumbling on the meat of it, but it never happened. I stuck with it hoping for even a line that would satisfy the “on-the-verge” feeling, but by the last line on the last page, I realized it wasn’t coming.
Maybe I’m too dense to really get the underlying substance of this book, but believe me, I was looking for it. Mar 16, Andrew Kaufman rated it really liked it. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a new favourite writer. Paul Auster is my new favourite writer. I wasn’t out looking for an Auster book, I was just oracupo at the library, but when I spotted it, the intriguing summary and ‘If you have never read Auster before,’ proclaims a quote displayed on the cover of this edition of Oracle Night’this is the place to start.
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 quote were good enough for me. Oracle Night is short, but packed with detail. It’s a multi-layered story, beginning with Sidney Orr – a novelist who is recovering from a severe illness – buying a unique Portuguese notebook in a rather odd stationery store.
On the recommendation of his friend, also a novelist, Sidney begins to flesh out an idea for a story concerning a man who suffers a near-death experience and impulsively leaves his wife and home, resolving to start his life anew in a different city.
The narrative follows both the progression of this tale and its protagonist Nick Bowen, and the ‘real’ story of Sidney, whose relationship with his wife Grace the history of which is detailed in a number of footnotes begins to flounder soon after he acquires the notebook.
Meanwhile, Sidney attempts to re-write HG Wells’ The Time Machine as a modern film script, turning it into an unconventional romance, and the Nick narrative also has a further strand wherein the character is profoundly affected by the contents of a lost manuscript, the title of which is Oracle Night.
Like I said, multi-layered. There are definitely elements of the weird about this story – the disappearance and relocation of the Paper Palace and its enigmatic proprietor, the ‘powers’ of the notebook – but roaculo isn’t a paranormal or lla novel.
Oracle Night by Paul Auster
This really appealed to me – I love the combination of literary prose and hints of the unexplained. It is very like Hustvedt’s, though it’s also quite easy to tell the difference. Despite all the intricacies of the plot, it often seems secondary to the way the story is told, the ideas it explores. 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 straight on to another of his books – The New York Trilogy – after finishing it.
May 13, Rebecca Gransden rated it it was amazing. Auster here takes story-telling and uses that as a means to ponder reality and every labyrinthine way this translates through perception. He takes the maze and straightens it out so that every turn, every fork, every dead end corridor or way in or out is set parallel.
