Reviews - What do customers think about Brooklyn follies (Panorama de Narrativas ) (Panorama De Narrativas)?
This book will touch your heart for a long time Jul 29, 2008
After you read the other reviews you will know what the story is about. It is very easy to read and direct. A no brainer and yet, there are many passages that will make you pause and think. Much will remind you of your own life, in a good way. This book is an excellant read.
A year of journaling from a boring old man... May 30, 2008
I was so disappointed. This book was a mash of a few slightly interesting characters and a great premise that never delievered. I kept wanting Auster to give me something more outlandish or intriguing then the ideals of his nephew on Bush politics or a gay ex-convict (which was the most interesting thing in the book).
Not a timeless piece you really are very clear the exact year it was written which is disturbing to me when reading a modern novel. However if you are an old man looking for an example of how to journal about your life for a year then I would suggest this book. Otherwise it just isn't worth the read. It wasn't horrible, just totally forgettable.
It starts well May 27, 2008
The book starts well, promissing a lot. However, it looses a lot of power after a few pages. You keep waiting characters to become more "deep" and "complex", but you end up with a soap opera - a good one, of course - but that lacks depth for a novel by Paul Auster.
entertaining, easy read Apr 20, 2008
this is the first book i have read by this author. from what i can see, most faithful paul auster fans did not enjoy this novel. since i have no point of reference....all i can say is this: it was entertaining, it kept moving, it was not boring at all, a good story. it was not earth shattering in any way, but just a good fun positive story to read inbetween all of those heavy, serious novels.
Exciting Captivating Apr 12, 2008
It is an amazing book. The characters were jumping off the book. I could not book down.
