The writing was good. Auster always knows how to describe it just in the right way Paul Auster’s mesmerizing eleventh novel reads like an old-fashioned ghost story. Oracle Night seems like one of Auster’s more perfunctory novels. It is September 18,and for the next nine days Orr will live under the spell of this blank book, trapped inside a world of eerie premonitions and bewildering events that threaten to destroy his marriage and undermine his faith in reality.

The story was confusing,the end upset me,and i feel depressed after roaculo 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.

La noche del orĂ¡culo by Paul Auster (2 star ratings)

There’s Martine, a prostitute from Haiti. When the day came for me to leave the hospital, I barely knew how to walk anymore, could barely remember who I was supposed to be We’re featuring millions of their reader ratings on our book pages to help you find your new favourite book.

Not a good book And we see it again in this novel, which is a story within a story within a story, told in Auster’s favourite narrative style. 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. Orr’s own story is told largely through footnotes, which help the reader delve a little into his personal life and his relationship with his wife, Grace, and their mutual friend and fellow author, John Trause.


I learned a few new words. Apr 14, Shane rated it really liked it. In the end, I felt like it spoke a lot without saying much of anything.

Auster, via all his previous work. Some notes of fantasy that were intriguing. Even though he doesn’t particularly buy into those ideas, i coincidentally FOUND a copy of this book the very next day.

All of the intrigued built up in the first half was abandoned and forgotten in the latter half in favor of a completely different storyline – one that was much less interesting.

The lesson of randomness however, is quite powerful, because after the random event, all previous efforts by those affected seem trivial and unecessary. We all know that, but the moment we go beyond a catalogue of surface qualities and appearances, words begin to fail us, to crumble apart in mystical confusions and cloudy, unsubstantial metaphors.

So here we have Sidney Orr, just released from the hospital after recovering from an almost fatal disease. He flips the pages prematurely to get the “hidden” back story, breaking the rules of literature by traversing through the main plot itself Ma il senso di questo libro?

novhe Guess I’m not an Auster fan. That slim part of this slim book was great, but I found the arch story the even more mundane version of that narrative and I wasn’t interested.

La noche del orĂ¡culo

Several months into his recovery from a near-fatal illness, novelist Sidney Orr enters a stationery shop in Brooklyn and buys a blue notebook. It felt like the author threw in as many things as he could to cover up his lack of a coherent story. Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions Want to Read Currently Reading Read.


This is ineffective trickery, high-handedness, and an option to go noir instead of ironic because irony is a more delicate operation. In my opinion he had two books here, one that was halfway finished, and a less interesting one that he found along the way.

This either means they were very good or that I am easily confused, I’ll leave it to you to decide which. Orr alternates between the tale he is writing and his real life, which becomes increasingly mysterious and which, in some ways, begins to mirror other well-known works of literature show more. I was hoping that would lead to all kinds of mysterious back and forth between the stories, and a sudden litany austeer questions about what’s real and what’s the story, but this turned out to not be that kind of book.

The author successfully wrapped up things and tied eel together, providing a plausible ending. La recensione dietro palesemente falsa e acchiappa lettori.

La Noche Del Oraculo

Una Semana de Vacaciones Christine Angot. I don’t know if I will again read anything by Paul Auster. Oracle Night is short, but packed with detail. I suppose I won’t put 4 3 2 1 on my reading list.

When was the last time you saw a note in a fiction book three pages long?! Instead, it was all the randomness? Este es un escritor que compra un misterioso cuaderno azul en donde escribe una novela. See my other book reviews here.

And I don’t think I am going to try any other of Paul Auster’s novels any time soon.
