It's the Process, Not the Ending
am 7. Mai 2000
From the first page, you're just sucked into the world of the main character, the detective Quinn. One of the best American writer today, Paul Auster's works are mainly based on his real life's experience. That is why his characters are so real. I disagree with the reader who said that his endings tend to be weak. It is very clear that Auster intended to avoid any closure in the endings of his stories. If you've read his other books, you'll realise that most of the time, his characters would just disappear or go on to lead another life, just like the character in Knut Hamsun's Hunger, who just decided to leave on a ship at the end of the novel without giving us any reason.
