This is my first Paul Auster book and I really love his writing. This book caught my attention right away.There was such a mystery surrounding it that I wanted to finish it all in one sitting. Right towards the end of the book, maybe the second to last part, I almost thought I was going to hate it. So close to the end and so much unexplained. Surprisingly, it ended very well and actually the surprise was not entirely unexpected... I was very close to guessing the mystery and didn't know it. I'm glad I came across this while browsing in the library and can't wait to read more of his books.
