    Story
    (379)

    Nearly two weeks early, on March 3, 1947, in the maternity ward of Beth Israel Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson, is born. From that single beginning, Ferguson's life will take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. Four identical Fergusons made of the same DNA, four boys who are the same boy, go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Athletic skills and sex lives and friendships and intellectual passions contrast.

    Story

    Paul Auster has written a both technically and creatively wonderful book. That I as a Norwegian woman in her twenties would be so swept up in the coming of age stories of a young Jewish boy in the sixties was beyond my expectations. But, I loved ever minute of the book and was sad to see it end too soon! which was surprising after more than thirty hours in Auster's universe. The book is a classic American monstrous novel, yet it all works out. it is not a book for everyone, and require a certain degree of patience from the reader. However it is so worth paying attention to all the details, as they truly contribute to the story as a whole. The literary references throughout will be engaging for most with a literary interest, and the descriptions of contemporary politics and social movements are captivating. especially as a non American one feels like the book can provide a greater understanding of America life and values.
