Book review
The novel covers a lonely life of M.S. Fogg who does not fit into society. Marco's life is based on finding his identity, but being an orphan makes it hard to accomplish his aim.
Never in my life did I read a book that combines formal language with informal language. Auster makes his novel "Moon Palace" approachable for the young generation as well as the old generation. I therefore recommend the book to all readers.
Although the novel is fictional, Auster tells the story realistically. As Auster uses many adjectives for the characters, the reader is able to identify with the characters. The reader thinks about them and feels with them.

On the contrary, Auster makes the plot appear unrealistic by tending to exaggerate the theme coincidence. It is unrealistic that Marco as an orphan meets his grandfather by chance and even later Marco finds his father, again through coincidental meaning.
All three characters -Marco, Solomon and Effing- have similar life courses that makes it hard to distinguish between them. I often had to reread certain passages because I was afraid to mix them up. Even more confusing was it to distinguish between the characters as the plot is told in a non-chronological order.

Spot my mistakes, plz!!

The novel covers the lonely life of M.S. Fogg who does not seem to fit into society. From the outset Marco faces the major challenges of finding his roots, as well as the pursuit of happiness and inner peace, which he so desperately needs; while being an orphan makes it hard to accomplish his aim.
Never in my life had/have I read a book that combines formal language with informal language. Auster makes his novel "Moon Palace" approachable for the young generation as well as the old generation. I therefore recommend the book to readers at all ages.

On the contrary, Auster makes the plot appear unrealistic by tending to exaggerate the theme 'coincidence'. To me, it appears rather improbable that Marco, as an orphan, should meet his grandfather by chance and even later Marco finds his father, again through coincidental meaning.
All three characters -Marco, Solomon and Effing- have similar personal histories that makes it hard to distinguish between them. I often had to read certain passages several times/more than once . Even more confusing was it to distinguish between the characters as the plot is told in a non-chronological order.


Just a few proposals, still, there's much room left for improvement
