Book Review: Travels in the Scriptorium – by Paul Auster

Travels in the Scriptorium – by Paul Auster

There was a decided mysteriousness and ingenuity about this plot, which is the whole point about the style that is said to be characteristic of Paul Auster. (This is the first I have read of his books.)

It was easy to get through this book – it is just 145 pages long; the story is engaging and well written. Fitting the whole plot together after reading the ending is what stretches the mind and elevates it onto a philosophical plane.

I shall not give away the story here. Suffice to say, the book is worth an encounter if just for curiosity to experience the different type of world one travels into. Perplexing in some ways, it is an unusual sort of theme to be explored – a journey into a writer’s mind.

Blogging – An Experiment

Musing

Blogging, for me, started three and a half weeks ago, with a steep learning curve and not having a clue what it was about. I have seen many blogs since, with different styles – some for business and very professional, some for serious hobby enthusiasts, many for leisure (travel, books, humour) and some for sharing of personal thoughts and experiences.

For now, my blog is still an experiment. I have many interests (books, business, risk, science, travel) and have been penning my thoughts and experiences in the different categores.

The best part of the experience so far has been the journey to other blogs, in fact, some amazing blogs! Writers, book-lovers, philosophers, psychologists and business people have visited my blog, liked my posts, commented or decided to follow me; then I have discovered their fabulous blogs, with a wealth of good writing, tips and knowledge.

I feel I have discovered friends with common interests in this process and am privileged to be growing through visiting all these blogs. Thank you, bloggers!
