This is the film book for a not-very-successful film. I love Paul Auster's work, and his film experiements with Wayne Wang on Smoke and Blue in the Face is an amazing use of words and moving images. Lulu on the Bridge, however, just doesn't fall in the same category. Auster tried to direct this one himself, and it shows. There are some good ideas involved, but the pace and the plot's incoherence strains even the most patient viewer.
ثمانه
احساس کردم کتاب رو نصفه نیمه خوندم. یا اینکه نویسنده یه دفعه وسط داستان خسته شده و با بازگشت دوباره به صحنه تیر خوردن ایزی خواسته کار رو یه جورایی تموم کنه. از اون کتابهایی است که اگر تندخوان باشید می تونید تو یه جلسه همه ش رو بخونید . داستان به اندازه کافی جذابیت داره که بتونه یک روز و یا حداقل چهار یا پنج ساعت شما رو پا به پای خودش از نیویورک تا دوبلین بکشونه.
داستان ، مثل همه داستانهای پل استر داستان تنهایی آدمهای مدرن و امروزیست . همون داستان همیشگی گذشتن و رد شدن بی خیال از کنار همدیگه البت

Recommends it for: people who like surreal romances
I saw the movie before I purchased the book. This is a great story about two people that meet under odd circumstances and how a "magical" stone brings them together. The stone causes a deep connection between Izzy and Celia to the point of not wanting to live without one another. Unfortunately time passes and the stone leads them to heartbreak and sadness. A wonderful story you can read in one sitting. You won't want to put the book down.
Leticia
it is actually a screenplay, but Paul Auster is talented enough to make a shopping list sound good.

I liked more than The Book of Illusions. It's surreal, but still good.
Brent Legault
Both book and movie are an embarrassment.
