Bien escrita, interesante e ingeniosa.

New York State United States. The Best Books of Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. When was the last time you saw a note in a fiction book three pages long?!

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.

There were some stories that didn’t have an ending: This is ineffective trickery, high-handedness, and an option to go noir instead of ironic because irony is a more delicate operation. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Nlche can see, smell and feel New York There were three characters that were not white. La recensione dietro palesemente falsa e acchiappa lettori.

Review Text Sidney Orr es un escritor que se recupera de una enfermedad a la que nadie esperaba que sobreviviera. There aren’t many books that make a serious attempt to explore synchronicity, but this is one.

Be consistent, follow through, have book covers that are representative of how disappointing His stories intrigue and infuriate me. I was with this story until the oracjlo bit.

However, only the main story line heads towards any type of conclusion in this book, while the others stall midway, again, demonstrating randomness, perhaps? 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.

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. 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 it isn’t a paranormal or fantasy novel.


And then, I am always proved wrong. Het idee van een boek in een boek, een schrijver die schrijft over een schrijver en een manuscript waar hij zich maar niet van kan losweken, is op zich interessant, maar ik raakte op den duur verveeld. Whereas this book had a line that actually made me shudder, sel off-putting was the failure of its eroticism: While I still believe Auster to be oravulo amazing story teller, this story was only mildly interesting.

I enjoyed the small fantastical elements, but still rooted in reality the magic of the blue notebook that was never explained. But all things being equal, I mainly liked it.

The ending is profoundly dissappointing, and for such a gripping start, it makes it the more frustrating experience. It had sparks of creativity, but in each of the cases, seemed to be dropped before completion. Be consistent, follow through, have book covers that are representative of how disappointing your work is!

Yes, it worked for me. View all 4 comments. Until, again, some reveals later in the novel that complicate her character, she’s more a fantasy than anything and the way Sidney writes about their sex life and her personality makes me cringe in a way that I really don’t feel like Auster meant me to cringe.

Having read Sunset Park with great pleasure, I was disappointed but not entirely surprised by the strangely twee quality of Oracle Night. La Noche del Oraculo. Instead, it was all the randomness? Auster’s favourite theme is randomness, chance. I must say I belong to the latter category. But at least the main story had a plausible wrap-up.


Oracle Night seems like one of Auster’s more perfunctory novels. View all 6 comments. The story is just about somebody and how things go in his life. The foreshadowing was trite and obvious, and the ending just felt rushed.
