    "Without a doubt this book is Mr. Auster's grandest opus. A labor of love seven years in the making that draws intensely from his own life and experiences, this book contains the heart and soul of this author. The book has been awarded over and over again and deserves the commitment required to read it."

    "Wow! The Invention of Solitude had me glued to the book the entire time. I thought it was great to read about the past and into the present time of the author. It gave me a glimpse into what it was like in his lifetime and to find out how he felt through it all."

    "This is one of the best books by Paul Auster. It is a graphic novel with a lot of very deep meaning to it. I've read it a few times now and am always entertained when I do so. The characters are well depicted and draw the reader into the story. I don't want to give away anything, I can only say that you need to read it for yourself!"
