    "Add in German. Author Paul Auster is the bestselling author of Travels in the Scriptorium, The Brooklyn Follies, and Oracle Night. I Thought My Father Was God, the NPR National Story Project anthology, which he edited, was also a national bestseller. His work has been translated into thirty languages. It is about a young Caucasian boy named Walter from St. Louis Missouri, who meets a man named Master Yehudi, who we later find out is a Jew from Hungary, named Master Yehudi says he will teach Walter how to fly, hence the title of the book Mr. Vertigo.

    "This looks like this is one of the first YA books there ever was, which makes it a must read."

    "Mr. Vertigo, while intriguing and well-written seems to fall just short of "amazing". I found it to be entertaining, and possibly recommendable, but far from must-read or amazing. I found that I could take it in short bursts over a weekend, which is what I would suggest. A good, entertaining time-killer that will keep you interested just long enough."

    "I think this is definitely a great read for teenagers. It makes them look at people more like humans and not stereotype them based on their looks alone. It shows teenagers that you really need to get to know someone before you can make a decision about what type of person you think they are."

    "I've read a few books now by Paul Auster, and while this isn't my favorite, I did enjoy it. Watching Walter grow throughout the story and overcome his prejudices was a delight. It also helped me to learn how to grow a bit myself."

    "Sounds a bit interesting but mainly boring. I noticed it had been reviewed only 3 times. Then I noticed this version is in German. Since it's in German I put this as a bad Solution."

    "Mr. Vertigo is a unique book and a must read. The story of Walter Claireborne Rawley is so interesting and I found myself thinking about it weeks after I finished the novel. "

    "I don't really consider this book a classic, since it was published in the late 90s. I was drawn in immediately into the story, however, as it is set as early as the 1920s. There is an important human condition moral and I'm glad to have given this book a try."
