Book #16 - Moon Palace

Moon Palace by Paul Auster

Rating: 3

Something about Auster's style always (ok, this is only the 2nd book of his that I've read, but still!) reminds me of Haruki Murakami's books (of his I've read 5). And the storyline with the main male character somewhat lost and alienated, with a sometimes tenuous grasp of reality, pondering some of life's conundrums, searching for something, in this case, the recurring theme of the absent, missing father. It was a rather meandering story, but still very readable and intelligently-written. However, I preferred The New York Trilogy and would recommend that one over this one.
