Paul Auster maginary theater, repeating lines.

Paul Auster maginary theater, repeating lines that had been written for him in advance. He had never felt this way before, and the wonder of it was how little it disturbed him, how easily he slipped into playing his part. The money was the only thing that mattered, and if this foul-mouthed kid could get it for him, then Nashe was willing to risk everything to see that it happened.

Classic Auster. Auster has always been interested in chance, fate, magic. It comes together in this earlier novel from a great writer. He knows how to tell a tale. Here when situations shouldn't add up, they always do. Nothing is left to 'chance'when a situation seems to be imposible, there 'chance'is waiting to solve and resolve the situation. I was glad to find an Auster book that I hadn't had the privilege to read.
I love to read Auster. Music of Chance is thrilling, unusual, funny, the characters well depicted. I couldn't put the book down. The only issue with Auster's books in general and this one in particular, is that the endings are frustrating. The only consolation I have is that I can well write my own endings, since most of them are fiction.
Intriguing novel. Paul Auster is full of surprises and unpredictability. This main character was recently divorced and feeling rudderless. He came into some unexpected money and quit his job as a fireman to travel aimlessly. Until. Until he met a young gambler. The fun and trouble began for the two of them and the story twisted and turned. A fun read with this reader pulling for the two of them to make good decisions. Short and meaningful book.
What a book! Buy it, read it. For me this was an updated "On the road" for our troubled times. In this nightmare version of dropping out of the rat race ( instead of finding inner truth and beauty as in the self-help books our hero finds - well the opposite) the meaning of life is not to be found, and drifting is, well, just drifting. And beware what you meet in the forest......
I liked the main character and his mercurial ways, his peculiarity reminded me of how Murakami writes narrators. Especially liked the charming dialogue between Nashe and Pozzi, the double act of the two.
But the first 80 pages or so were nothing special, and the last 40 pages or so threw too many clumsy disjointed emotional curveballs for my taste.
Overall pretty good.
What can happen when one's life relies completely on mere chance? This beautifully-told story sets out to explore topics such as music, duality, space and solitude, with chance being it's motor. The characters are one with the text and they develop correctly. Difficult to put down, as if driving the reader in a road of music.
I can only surmise--it it's Paul Auster, it's going to be thoughtful, difficult, probably darkly illuminated, with grace.
An excellent story. Auster continues to be a master story teller.
