    3 starsI think that I'm in the minority here I didn't love this novel as most everyone else seemed to I like the idea of this but I think that the concept v the execution fell short I found this to be the most exhausting book I have ever read and was completely spent after I was done reading it I had to force myself to finish the last few hundred pages just so that I could find out what happened For me the concept of this book is absolutely brilliant 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster is an auspicious undertaking However the actual execution of the book itself was not as remarkable I felt that a lot was lost in the actual writing of it4 3 2 1 is the story of Archie Ferguson However it is not the story of just one Archie Ferguson Imagine a boy named Archie living four parallel lives this is that story I think the first third of the book is the strongest and that the author did an incredible job providing a backstory for Archie his parents lives their relationship and Archie’s beginning I will say that I was really impressed with how Paul Auster set out each different version of Archie – each personality was very distinguishable even though they were inherently the same person For me however after the first third of the book my interest was lost The incoherent rambling sentences of each version of this young man drove me insane At first I thought Paul Auster was trying to convey that that was how a young teenager speaks but as each version of Archie grew older he continued to speak in the same manner rambling on about nothing and it made me crazy I would think that certain versions of him the writer; the journalist would speak in shorter concise sentences and fully formed thoughts and that did not happen I personally think the novel would have been better served if it had been cut by several hundred pages Why did I even bother finishing it you ask? Simply because I wanted to find out what happened to each different version of Archie And even though much of the book made me crazy I'm glad I did

    This is a wonderful and intelligent in depth look at the 4 different lives of the jewish Ferguson born in March 1947 to Stanley and Rose Set in New York and New Jersey it is a novel full of details it begins with giving us the disparate backgrounds and families of store owner Stanley and photographer Rose It charts the relationship between Stanley and Rose and their heartbreaking attempts to have a child Once Ferguson is born we are given a non linear but simultaneous life trajectory structured in distinct episodes for each Ferguson It made me laugh when the first young Ferguson has every intention of marrying his mother What Auster does is bring home how each different decision and event changes the life of Ferguson through an intense and tumultuous period of American social and political history of the 1960s up until the early 1970s So we get the awareness of the fate of the Rosenbergs the civil rights movement the Vietnam War and the protests in which Ferguson takes part I found it difficult to remember which Ferguson is which at times partly my fault but partly because whilst Ferguson has different lives he is essentially the same person He is a writer in every version of his life his politics are progressive and Amy is the girl he gets involved with albeit with differing results He dwells on the nature of money and whether it should necessarily dictate that the family should therefore move into a bigger house just because they could Auster captures the raw energy vitality and intensity with which the young live their lives and the central role of and obsession with sex I loved the cultural references such as the books and movies that marked the period Different events in the family mark each Ferguson such as the death of his father in a arson attack on the store One Ferguson experiences an early death as a result of a lightning stormThis is a very long and ambitious novel which might not be to everyone's taste and there are some extremely long sentences in it I loved it although it is not perfect and there are parts which tended to ramble a little too much The prose is beautiful and I found the narrative a gripping read most of the time Near the end Auster informs us why the novel was structured as it is Elements of the novel have been informed by the autobiographical details of the author's life Characters from his previous novels make an appearance in this book Auster is connecting his life's work and life brilliantly in this novel This is essentially the story of the life and times of Paul Auster A highly recommended read Many thanks to Faber and Faber for an ARC

Had 'my Paul' been in the room listening to a scene when Archie was at Camp Paradise believe me he would not have turned off the audiobook THIRTY NINE PLUS hours of listening to an audiobook no matter how sexy charming and AWESOME my new audio husband was and no matter how ENGAGING it was to follow the life of Ferguson his family his passions his relationships his hygiene and eating habits his sex life and his love for Amy Schneiderman 39 hours is a LOT OF TIME OUT OF A PERSON'S life My original plans were to spend hours listening while hiking the trails However unexpectedly mother nature played a trick on California It's only stopped raining for about 2 3 hours 'total' in the past month I had no idea I would become a house prisoner audiobook listener So I re adjusted my plans So what do I think is so wonderful about 4 3 2 1?

    I was excited about this to begin with but it soon began to feel like a vehicle without an engine that Auster was pushing ever uphillIf we live only a small part of our inner life externally what happens to the rest? Unfortunately Auster doesn’t address this intriguing uestion in any kind of stimulating way though you’d think a novel about a character living four parallel lives wouldHow much of fate comes from within and how much comes from without? Unfortunately Auster doesn’t address this intriguing uestion in any kind of stimulating way either though you’d think a novel about a character living four parallel lives wouldI’ve got a lot of time for Paul Auster but I’m afraid I found this a self indulgent and ultimately pointless novel I wasn’t a great fan of Life after Life but Atkinson’s novel on a similar theme is much fluid and interesting structurally than this It’s also immeasurably outlandishly playful Atkinson’s heroine becomes a downtrodden bullied wife in one version; assassinates Hitler in another Auster’s hero by contrast goes to Princeton in one version; Colombia in another Maybe that’s truer to life but it hardly makes for gripping dramatic tension And yet Auster is uite happy to employ melodrama as a deciding factor in creating crossroad moments – a murdered father a car crash resulting in the loss of thumb and first finger except his melodrama leads to banal distinctions Atkinson like the film Sliding Doors identified the crossroad moments when a fate might change course; Auster doesn’t – he uses accidents rather than choices to define the fate of his character Things happen off screen and differently from one life to another for no apparent reason an uncle makes a bizarre decision the father makes completely different life choices for no apparent reason with far reaching repercussions in one life which he doesn’t make in another In this regard Ferguson is like a puppet operated by his male family members Auster’s hero is perhaps the biggest problem I was never convinced he was sufficiently intriguing as a character for a 200 pg novel let alone an almost 900 pg one The sixties should be fascinating but Ferguson is like some throwback to the 1950s Though this novel is waterlogged with the minutiae of 60s news items and memorabilia there’s no mention of LSD of rock music of hippy culture Ferguson loves baseball basketball Bach and beer He’s not a child of his time Therefore the decade begins to become irrelevant and it’s a bit baffling why so much energy is spent in trying to recreate it I assumed at least one version would send him to Vietnam or prison to provide some real dramatic contrast Nope Instead the cliffhanger is whether Ferguson will become a novelist or a translator of poetry Gripping stuff At the heart of this novel is a colossal failure of imagination on Auster’s part – he can’t imagine himself as anything but a writer That said I agree with Auster and not with Atkinson – that if we had four cracks at life they wouldn’t be significantly different – but for that very reason this all becomes a very pointless and long winded exercise The other problem is you also get three or four lives in a computer game and after a while this began to become as predictable and repetitive as a computer game Whatever happens isn’t sufficiently conseuential to sustain interest There’s not much at stake when you get four rolls of the dice So what if he dies in one version? It’s actually a relief because it was hard work trying to remember the thin distinctions between one life and another At least we now had one less nuanced account of his love life and literary aspirations to retain in memory This novel would be a good test for evaluating how prone you might be to dementia And to be honest I didn’t understand why things turned out differently in the various versions Because his father dies he becomes gay? That seemed to me a crass piece of reasoning In one version his cousin Amy finds him irresistible; in another she’s sexually indifferent I never had a clue why My feeling was Auster didn’t either That his main motivation for writing this was to lavishly indulge in nostalgia for his lost youth Then why not just write a memoir? To add insult to injury he deploys an utterly lame post modernist trick at the end trying to cajole us into believing the whole thing has been the height of cleverness After this Jane Smiley’s dreadful Some Luck and Murakami’s rambling dead end 184 I’m now going to think very hard before reading any novel over 700 pages

  5. Andrew Smith Andrew Smith says:

    I’ve read uite a bit of Auster’s work over the years mainly his novels but also some of his non fiction output too I’ve imbibed uite a bit of biographical detail in this time from books such as Hand to Mouth A Chronicle of Early Failure and The Red Notebook True Stories and conseuently I can see that a good deal of the content herein is based on the author’s own passions and experiences A uick list would throw up his love of novels poetry films and baseball his college education at Columbia and his time spent in Paris where he lived in a top floor maids room But there are other elements too such as a real life incident he’s talked about a good deal in which at the age of fourteen a young boy next to him was struck by lightening and killed So is this book just a big biographical tome? No its much much than that The novel tells the story of four parallel lives of Archibald ‘Archie’ Ferguson born of Russian Jewish descent in New Jersey in 1947 Given the same start point for each of the four lives it follows that the paths diverge as a result of random events which lead each Archie to follow a different route All the Archies are interested in films sport politics and above all books – in fact they all aspire to become writers There are actually many similarities with regard to the lives lived such as some of the people they meet and a number of events that impact all of their lives but the relationships between characters is different and Archie’s involvement in the common events and their impact on him deviate significantly The result is we have four different stories each using the same timeline broadly the same geography and many of the same characters Some of the routes Archie takes are down to blind luck good or bad but at other times it’s subtler often the path is influenced by the brilliantly observed interactions with and behaviours of people who surround him Each tale is told in alternating chapters so we get to see four versions of a small section of his life before repeating the process If this sounds like there could be repetition then that’s because there is – of some key events But remember that we see these events through different eyes each with an altered involvement in the given occurrence At some points it does feel like the chosen structure slows progress to a crawl but any reservations I have about this are than offset by the pure enjoyment I got from the author’s prose This man can certainly writeIf like me you think you’ve missed out on many of the literary works that you you feel or have been told you should have read then there is a veritable crib sheet of titles here In fact one of the Furguson’s has a list of one hundred books he must read drafted for him I’m not sure I’ll get to many if any of these but curiosity may drive me to seek out at least one or two The fact is that Auster’s love of the written word leaps off the page This is a book for lovers of books It a huge book at nearly nine hundred pages and therefore it’s a significant enterprise for any reader to take on However it’s written in a straightforward style and as long as readers can keep track of the four storylines I kept notes then I feel there’s nothing off putting here Ok there are some very long sentences with uite a few words I’d never come across before but I really did feel that the narrative flow was well controlled The inventiveness and imagination demonstrated by Auster will come as no surprise to seasoned readers of his books and there are some brilliant thoughts and insights on all sorts of issues literary works and on life in general And above all I became so invested in the lives of Ferguson that I became truly emotional when each tale had run its course A good read? No it's than that – a masterpiece as far as I’m concernedMy thanks to Faber and Faber and NetGalley for providing an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

  7. BlackOxford BlackOxford says:

    Glazed OverI had a personal interest in this book I was born just three weeks before it's protagonist Archie Ferguson and nine days after his author Paul Auster I grew up in a similar suburb of New York City and in similar economic and educational circumstances So to the extent that Ferguson was shaped by the cultural context of the day perhaps I could detect unrecognised influences in my own life Or even exciting given that 4 3 2 1 is about alternative universes I could explore the paths not taken in my own life Not the most noble of motives but certainly not the worst But there are certain literary problems with the premise of alternative lives that I don't think Auster has worked through thoroughly at least not for my purposes By now most educated readers know of Chaos Theory the idea that even the smallest changes in initial conditions can generate immense conseuences This one supposes applies as much to relationships as to particle interactions Therefore who we meet indeed who our parents or friends or their parents or friends have ever met obviously have untold ramifications for any individual life So which relationships should the author choose to modify in alternative life stories? Mother father? Mother aunt? Father uncles? Among the in laws? The possibilities are obviously endless with no inherent rationality no matter which are selected If there is any significance to the relationships Auster has chosen to use as narrative fulcra they have escaped me This annoys my aesthetic sensibilities; I have no way to relate to the method and therefore the characters are abstractions and unrelated to my life even though the freuent environmental references Kennedy Vietnam New York City are familiarThe randomness of life also includes one's own genetic make up which may or may not be translated into any number of behaviours Does watching a world series game at age four create a seed of interest in playing baseball or merely following baseball? Does a loving auntie's fondness for literature create a capacity for literary taste or a distaste for oppressive direction in reading? Will a fascination for journalistic writing at a young age forestall development of athletic talent? Clearly the possibilities are uncountable and complex a problem which doesn't arise if the story is a unitary narrative But how does an author create four such stories with any cohesion? The bumps and nudges Auster introduces in each of Ferguson's lives are like random variables in a gigantic mathematical euation But the euation if it exists is hidden throughout the text I admit to an inability to solve the mathematical problem In any case I don't see myself anywhere in itAnd of course life paths bifurcate constantly So influential events and choices compound deviations How can an author maintain control over the cascading possibilities in a way that still has some sort of narrative sense? How does the reader for that matter keep track of the partially congruent lives and the not uite the same protagonists as they float through an interweaved existence? 4 3 2 1 is a long book structured episodically By the time of the protagonist's adolescence it is unlikely anyone who isn't a member of Mensa would be able to remember which teenager descends from which toddler whose father was the thrusting entrepreneur and whose the local shopkeeper which girlfriend called Amy is in love or not with which version of Ferguson and whose aunt lives in California and whose in Brooklyn I failed the associative test having to retreat to my bed with a migraine An inadeuate as well as unsympathetic reader thereforeThe continuities among the four lives are interesting Suburban Jewish Intellectual Liberal These are the axes around with everything else in 4 3 2 1 mutates and rotates They are the sort of Kantian categories which shape the universe from which alternatives are selected These of course are as arbitrary as the scenarios that Auster creates within them But perhaps they are the only things that really matterIn other words it may be the continuities not the variations that constitute Auster's point That for example the possibilities available within the universe bounded by these categories are not infinite Or if they are they are at least countable And in a sense they converge in a kind of fatalistic unity This would constitute a rather sophisticated literary game To say risks giving the game away I have real uestions whether this game is worth playing though Or at least that I have the talent to play it I ended up like one of Auster's characters with the glazed over look of a man unable to see anything but the thoughts inside his own head Just where I started I suppose

    First of all thank you to GoodReads friend Andrew for the terrific review that he wrote of this book and for his encouragement to give it a try Also thank you to all the GoodReads friends who pressed the “like” button andor added reinforcement comments as I updated my reading status day by day All the support helped so much to bolster my journey with this 880 page book And of course thank you to Paul Auster for writing with the bravery and the talent to create something completely different in a way that is accessible and eminently readable for everyone4 3 2 1 is a very different book; I have never read anything remotely like it in my reading life Four alternate lives the longest sentences in the world 2 or 3 pages long in a few instances and conseuently some of the longest paragraphs as well Some or all of these factors may be intimidating or overwhelming for some people They were for me at first but the writing is so rich and flowing that these aspects are not detrimental at all and actually became part of the story's charmArchie Ferguson is endearing in all his parallel lives from his babyhood to young boyhood and through each lifespan When he is older all of his parallel selves write some of them from young adolescence on through college years and beyond He is a journalism writer of immediate events – sports movie and book reviews and politics andor anti politics; he is also a writer of poetry He is a writer of books – memoir style in one book and in another juxtaposing the influence of movies on children the impact of movies on child actors and the dreams of young people even Anne Frank to be in movies themselves In another parallel existence he writes very strange books but ones that made me think about the possibilities and how someone would go about writing such a book There are many stories within this story and each one is fascinating related and relevantThe story lines run parallel yet with subtle differences I did not find the different stories difficult to follow at all The author kindly leaves tiny bread crumbs at the start of each chapter so it was easy to re connect with which lifeline I was readingThere are tragedies within these stories and there are triumphs too Archie experiences some damaging physically andor mentally andor emotionally circumstances in his lives and with help or sheer determination manages to move through them using these experiences as a learning tool for growth There are losses in Archie’s lives that are heartbreaking There are family challenges to deal with education choices to make and plenty of teenage and young adult romantic and sexual frustrations and confusionsThere are books and authors and movies and music and books and travel and politics and sports and books and rebellions and striving to do the right thing There are multiple charged situations and radical pursuits of change from the 1960’s and 1970’s included throughout the storiesThere is much to think about in this book; so many partially recalled events that were courageously brought to life in these stories Some of the events made me feel the situations so deeply I had tears in my eyes All that was ghastly and horrific and monstrous from those decades was explored and brought to the fore I thought of those times the 1960’s and early 1970’s as ones that were swept under the rug andor buried under heaps of jasmine scented manure No one who wasn’t there can even comprehend the full impact because the reality and the facts were completely distorted and aborted by the press government agencies and university administrations but it is all here and it is undilutedBut why do it in this particular way? Why not write four separate books instead of four parallel books in one? Maybe Auster could have been writing about himself when he wrote Archie’s thoughts Why attempt to do such a thing? Why not simply invent another story and tell it as any other writer would? Because Ferguson wanted to do something different Because Ferguson was no longer interested in telling mere stories Because Ferguson wanted to test himself against the unknown and see if he could survive the struggleI think it is obvious that Mr Auster did test himself against the unknown with this book and he survived this particular struggle with wit grace humour and exceptionally splendid writing Now we as readers are invited to enjoy the fruits of those labours And to be honest there was too much overlap too many incidents and too much information in this book for individual stories This book simply had to be written the way it was and I am impressed with the results and marvel at the talent and skill that brought this creation into being At about the 90% mark I felt sad because I only had a few hours of reading left4 3 2 1 is on the longlist for the 2017 Booker prize It deserves to win I recommend this book to anyone who is open to the challenge of reading a book that is different a book that is long that challenges and expands our thoughts and feelings throughout and to anyone who is willing to suspend judgement in favor of discernment If you can do this you will be rewarded with a fabulously good read

    4321 narrates four versions of one young man’s life how it might have differed given small altered circumstances This wore me down Instead of becoming engaged I was exasperated by it at about pg 700 I kept thinking I could have read three novels in the time it took me to wade through this Essentially it struck me as four different drafts of the same half finished novel I kept waiting for the Eureka moment when the four narratives would suddenly shed light on each other and blaze into a brilliant whole but it never happened It remained for me four different drafts of a half finished and not very enthralling novel In fact I can’t really say I understood what the purpose of the novel was It’s a very American novel and as such will probably appeal if you live on the other side of the Atlantic And even so if you grew up in the 1960s as it’s liberally strewn with news items from American life in that decade For me the bottom line was I wasn’t enthralled by any of the narratives which were all very predictable portraits of the young artist We get his home life his college life his political convictions his love life but with a sense of having heard it all before Its saving grace was the high uality of the proseThanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy in exchange for an honest review

    What a wonderful and thought provoking book It is proving nearly impossible for me to write a coherent review of a book this large both in page count and in scope so I am going to concentrate on a few things that I kept thinking about since finishing itThis is Archie Fergusen's story told in four alternating timelines Auster uses this premise for a thoughtful meditation on what makes us us and how little changes lead to different paths I adored the way Auster lets this play out and shows how different versions of people are possible if key events turn out differently While I think Fergusen is the weak point when it comes to characters he can be a bit insufferable at times I absolutely loved his wonderful mother No matter what time line no matter what happens she is unwavering in her love and devotion to her son Some of the other supporting characters are brilliant as well; his father while difficult is a great and fully fleshed out character Amy Schneidermann is an enigma and female character that is allowed to be flawed and human and Fergusen's grandfather was also wonderfully imagined They are all allowed to make mistakes to grow from those mistakes and to be complete people even if they are not the focus of this grand workWhile the book is very long it never felt indulgent in its wordiness the story Auster wants to tell can only be told in this grand a scope even the in depth analyses of baseball games were necessary This is a rare achievement in a genre where I often prefer tighter works to Dickensian onesIt is really interesting to see what developments Auster sees as inevitable and which parts of Fergusen's life change depending on the time line In all four versions Fergusen is at the core a writer The genre he writes or the way he ends up as a writer vary but nevertheless he is always a man of words While this is fixed the people he meets and the relationships he forges with them are varied and change immensely depending on how his life turns out Given how close the biographical cornerstones are to Auster's own biography this can be seen a profound insight into what he considers most important Which is why at the core this beautiful work of art is above everything else a wonderfully believable and moving love letter to the Arts be it literature music theatre poetry photography or fine arts and their power This is for me the great achievement of this book and the reason why it kept me engaged while reading and thinking about it when I had to put the book awayI received an arc curtesy of NetGalley and Faber and Faber in exchange for an honest review Thanks for that
