This book is incredible because not only is Paul Auster an incredible writer but he takes you into this completely different world that is drastically different from our own. A woman goes to a city that hardly any return from in the search for her brother. What she finds there is beyond what she has ever seen: a city filled with desperation and broken homes and people. While you are reading, you can easily imagine yourself in her place, you wonder what you would do, how you would be. Although this story is ideally a story about a broken society, it also expresses a message of hope. How even in the worst, you can still find love and a reason to keep living.
