Mid-way through the book, I realized that I should watch The Best Years of Our Lives, the film mentioned throughout as Alice's dissertation subject. Once I did watch the film I went back and re-read Alice's deconstruction of the film and it also helped me understand some of the references, especially at the end where it really packed a punch even though I did not really like it. This is one of Auster's few novels that moved me emotionally. I loved the non-linear style the chapters were set up where we thought we were reading about Miles, but then the chapters became character sketches of each participant in Miles' life. Why didn't I like the ending? I guess because I have to agree with one of the reviewers who said that the book feels like it was only 2/3 of the actually story. But then not all stories need to be finished, so we're all caught in a bind. Why I gave a 4/5 and not 5? The last 30 pages of the book threw me off balance, perhaps intentionally, but I did not like the assault. I did not have a vested interest in Morris Heller, and the last 30 pages seemed to be mostly about Morris Heller. So what happens to the protagonist?
