finished: the brooklyn follies

The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster [9780805077148]

My last attempt at Auster was somewhat disappointing, though I did like the writing itself. This is my second attempt and was much better. It took a while to get going but somewhere pass the halfway point it grabbed me. The story of a man reconnecting and engaging with the threads of his life from which he has become isolated. The writing feels a little detached but proceeds in an easy paced laidback manner. The coincidental connections were a little forced at times but generally worked with the narrative flow ie it didn’t matter greatly as it wasn’t that sort of book.
