    A Moon Palace for the Misbegotten

    Typical Auster: strong line writing, well-defined characters, coincidence-heavy plot, a nonexistent ending. The latter two separates Auster from the pool of countless other "literary" authors. Nobody else has Auster's uncanny ability to evoke the desperation of loneliness.This is a strange novel, but if you've read Auster before, it's going to feel as familiar as that pillow you sleep under every night. There's this guy named M.S. Fogg, he's an orphan, and all sorts of crazy things happen to him, some by his doing, some by coincidence. The density of Auster's plot is staggering; the entire story of Effing, a character Fogg meets, could easily have been another book. That whole section almost reads like a Reader's Digest version of a bigger book, but I didn't mind at all. I don't mind efficiency when it's done right.Don't expect much from the ending. It just is. If you expect a nice tidy package at the end, you're gonna be disappointed. Just take it for... 4/5 vanishingpoint - See all my reviews This review is from: Moon Palace (Contemporary American Fiction) (Paperback) Typical Auster: strong line writing, well-defined characters, coincidence-heavy plot, a nonexistent ending.

    What A Wonderful Story, Beautifully Told

    0 5/5 Christopher A. Smith (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews, October 21, 1997

    Complex and entertaining

    This is one of Auster's strongest works. Moon Palace is difficult to summarize, and it would almost be easier to use a Venn diagram or a chronogram to describe the plot than to try to put it in words. Roughly speaking, the novel covers the curious life of M.S.Fogg, from his youth as an orphan to his strange days as a Columbia University graduate to his experience as caretaker of the eccentric Thomas Effing.But the novel is actually a series of stories and antecedents, all woven together through a tangled web of improbable coincidences and interactions. Many of the sections are virtually self contained. The tale of Fogg's inward retreat as an undergraduate culminating in his descent into homelessness in itself could be a well formed short story or novella. Likewise Effing's bizarre tale of adventure in the wilderness of Utah is story in itself. The links between these sections are a haphazard series of coincidences and connections, some which are seemingly intentionally... 4/5 0, April 5, 2001

    Surveillance of the self

    If you're looking for detective stories, look elsewhere. Auster isn't interested in the classic noirish private eye tale as anything but a way into territory vastly more compelling. Though his three novellas ostensibly revolve around men hired or driven into the pursuit of others, they end up being more about the psychology of the pursuer than the pursued. Surveillance of the self and the collapse of what we assume is our own identity is the abiding theme here, and Auster gives it three fascinating spins with simple plots which quickly spiral to literary altitudes. But don't expect simple resolutions. There are no straightforward answers here. If these were simple issues, they wouldn't justify the exploration Auster gives them. I had the pleasure of reading this immediately prior to Auster's "The Art of Hunger" (1997), a collection of essays and interviews which reveals, among other things, how "The New York Trilogy" blends aspects of his autobiography, literary theories and... 4/5 Steven Reynolds (Sydney, Australia) - See all my reviews, October 20, 2002

    A highly original and brilliant post-modern thriller

    Paul Auster's "New York Trilogy" consists of three seemingly unconnected novellas which though complete in themselves should be read as integral parts of a total literary experience. Unlike a conventional mystery thriller which focuses on the "who done what to whom" aspect of the storyline, Auster turns the table on the reader by taking him on a journey of self discovery past a hall of mirrors which reflect and expose by stages the psyche of the pursuer, not the pursued. The effect is so spooky you want to scream in your head as you encounter the next slice of reality about yourself. Readers familiar with the music of rock star David Bowie will find the reading experience similar to that of listening to his 1977 album "Low", a dark and creepy introspective piece of work. All three vignettes deal with questions of identity, reality and illusion, the meaning of words and language and explores the fine line between commitment and obsession. Both... 5/5 Simone Oltolina (Milan, Italy) - See all my reviews, October 25, 1999

    Good? Yes. Engaging? that's a different question...

    "The New York Trilogy", by celebrated author Paul Auster, is made up of 3, somewhat interlinked, long stories which were originately published separately at various times around 1985-86.There is no doubt that Paul Auster is a terrific writer so I won't even get into that aspect of the book.Let's get down to what's really important by trying to pinpoint the subject matter, i.e., what "the new york trilogy" is really about: in a sense, it's a mystery, in the true sense of the word, because even in the end many questions (most, I dare say) are left unanswered, many stones unturned and many cues are simply left hanging in the air.The NYT has been described as metaphysical detective fiction and the description might in fact prove apt: each of the 3 stories follows the investigations of one man which always turn into an obsession, making the man completely lose touch with the reality. The NYT is thus much about mental processes, we see each of the 3 main... 3/5 0, August 19, 2006

    (4.3/5)
    Penguin Books

    Amazingly Interesting and Helpful

    This is one of those rare books that is not only a joy to read, but also immensely helpful. It can help all of us with something that is at once troublesome and worrisome: our memory. It does this with ease, not teaching us some grueling rote memory technique, but one that is easy, natural and intuitive. Yet Moonwalking with Einstein turns out to not be exclusively a how-to book on memory. So what is it?Well, yes, it is about memory and how to improve it, but it is at once a history of techniques, a description of what memory is and what can go wrong with it, and also a running narrative of how the author, a journalist himself with no special memory skills, becomes one of the most proficient memory athletes in America.I'd learned a mnemonic device to aid memorization decades ago while in college, and found it to be helpful, but for some reason I'd abandoned the technique once I graduated. But Moonwalking with Einstein expands the mnemonic technique I learned... 5/5 David Sheppard "David Sheppard" (Healdsburg, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Learning memorization through Foers Journey!

    Slowly over time, it has become an increasingly painful realization that I am forgetting things more and more. The fact that I'm constantly misplacing my wallet drives my fiance crazy. He will call me at work to remind me to pick up certain groceries on my way home, and I'll completely forget. It is frustrating and a bit on the annoying side. I even forget things at work, which makes my job more difficult.I started doing some research on memory, and came across a book entitled, "Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything". The concept of this book seemed very interesting, so I purchased it and began to read it. I must admit, I was quite impressed. I had no idea that it was even possible to memorize 1,528 digits in an hour. Is a human brain really capable of such things? After divulging in this book some more, I realized that it is possible, with the proper training techniques for the brain, and memorization skills. How do we use the brain we... 4/5 micky - See all my reviews This review is from: Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything (Kindle Edition) Slowly over time, it has become an increasingly painful realization that I am forgetting things more and more.

    Now THIS is the kind of "self help" book that this Baby Boomer appreciated!

    Whether you have memory problems (can't recall the name of someone you met a week ago?) or not, you're likely to improve your memory after reading this book. Even if you don't - but odds are you will - it makes for fascinating reading.It definitely was a major aid for me and I do think of it as a unique "self help" book, one that can have immediate results, helping to make life easier, alleviate tricky memory issues and more. I think it is important to disclose that I'm a Baby Boomer and my memory seems to have worsened with age. I used to recall the name of nearly everyone I met as well as both major and minor actors and actresses, all of my teachers (from kindergarten through high school) as well as the first and last names of every one of my high school classmates. I could recall even tiny details of books read long ago.But Moonwalking with Einstein goes far beyond remembering the names of acqaintances. It can help make your daily life easier, aiding you... 5/5 Kcorn "reviewer" (Here) - See all my reviews, March 5, 2011
