Invisible by Paul Auster

I’ve always wanted to read a book by Auster and was really happy that this one, his latest, is the one I started with. “Invisible” tells of an oddball triangle: college student Adam Walker, professor Rudolf Born, and his French girlfriend, Margot. An act of violence extends and broadens their relationships. I loved the different narrators and perspectives, the resulting layers, and the carefully chosen language.

    okay so the novel isn’t 1000 pages but I did finish it over a weekend which is rare for me nowadays. I was surprised at how drawn in I was , so much so that I thought about the story a couple of times when I was out and about… In a couple of months you should try Brooklyn Follies (don’t want to add a link in case you would rather discover the book whole-heartedly for yourself before reading an overview or critic online) ,the only other Auster book I have read and enjoyed.
