What the community says about The Brooklyn Follies
- "The Brooklyn Follies is a book by Paul Auster that is available from Amazon for $4.43 for a new paperback. The book is about an old man who goes to Brooklyn to wait to die. The meets his nephew and gets into a scam trying to sell a fake page from "A Scarlet Letter." It is a good book and fits the topic very well."
- "Fun story. Well written. Great character development. After reading Oracle Night I couldn't wait to dig into more Paul Auster books. Having grew up near and having several friends from Brooklyn it was interesting to see how the author described it.""This book was great for me because of the perspective it was written in. I was able to imagine the main character as my father and maybe feel like I gained some insight into how my father is."
- "A book that started off strong, but, in the end was a disappointment. Nathan Glass goes to Brooklyn to die and runs across a favorite nephew unexpectedly. The nephew, despite a strong start, is now working in a bookstore. I kept reading, with faith in Auster that he wouldn't lead me astray, but the characters felt thrown into the story randomly and the ending felt forced."
- "This book is good, but I am not sure if I put it on my must-read list. It is a solid story with a compelling character, but I found it kind of lingers on for longer than it needs to. It really only sticks to one genre so I am not sure if this is really what some people are looking for."
