"Paul Auster's greatest, most heartbreaking and satisfying novel -- a sweeping and surprising story of birthright and possibility, of love and of life itself: a masterpiece. Nearly two weeks early, on March 3, 1947, in the maternity ward of Beth Israel Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson, is born. From that single beginning, Ferguson's life will take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. Four identical Fergusons made of the same DNA, four boys who are the same boy, go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Athletic skills and sex lives and friendships and intellectual passions contrast. Each Ferguson falls under the spell of the magnificent Amy Schneiderman, yet each Amy and each Ferguson have a relationship like no other. Meanwhile, readers will take in each Ferguson's pleasures and ache from each Ferguson's pains, as the mortal plot of each Ferguson's life rushes on. As inventive and dexterously constructed as anything Paul Auster has ever written, yet with a passion for realism and a great tenderness and fierce attachment to history and to life itself that readers have never seen from Auster before. 4 3 2 1 is a marvelous and unforgettably affecting tour de force. "--"A sweeping family saga (with a bit of a twist) about the life and loves of Archie Ferguson, a Jewish boy born to second-generation immigrants in the United States just after World War II"--… (mehr)

I am sure it is a great book and I really looked forward to reading it, and now I will look forward to finish it someday, but it is just impossible to keep the stories straight while reading an e-book.

I definitely need a hard copy and a colour coded system to get through it :) ( )

Dans cet opus de 1000 pages, Auster nous présente 4 versions d'une vie, liées par la trame de l'histoire mouvementée des années 1960 aux États-Unis. L'écriture est extrêmement fluide et porte le lecteur de scénarios en épisodes avec assez de répétitions pour ne pas perdre le fil des différentes histoires.
La toute fin est sans doute superflue mais elle donne un caractère biographique à l'ensemble qui rend le personnage principal plus attachant encore.
Il faut de la patience mais on est récompensé pour son effort. ( )

A Big What If

Paul Auster explores in great detail the effects a change early on can make in a life. The subject is Archie Ferguson and the change is the burning down of his father’s appliance/furniture store. As Archie himself muses fifty or so pages in, “Such an interesting thought, Ferguson said to himself: to imagine how things could be different for him even though he was the same. The same boy in a different house with a different tree. The same boy with different parents. The same boy with the same parents who didn't do the same things they did now.” The last line is the theme of the novel, a “what if” game played on what is at once a small and large field, these being one man’s life through some turbulent times, the 50s, 60s, and 70s. It’s an interesting thought for the very reason it is unoriginal: nearly everybody wonders what if at some point. Few, however, flesh things out in the extravagant detail you’ll find in 4 3 2 1.

Auster groups Archie’s four possible lives into seven chapters, dividing each chapter into four parts, Archie’s four lives. This can make for some reading challenges. As you might imagine, once you’ve read through a full chapter you have to pick up the thread of Archie’s first life again. Auster thankfully puts in small markers at the start of each to help you orient yourself. Just a guess here, but he’s also anticipated that some readers after the first chapter will decide to simplify things on their own by reading each life straight through. Not a bad strategy for keeping everything straight as Auster cobbles on a coda at the very end which sorts out the real and imagined. The only proviso here: you’ll want to read them in order, that is life one first, etc.

Prepare yourself for lives in great detail. Few of us probably are as introspective as the four Archies, even as a small child, since he is quite a precocious fellow. Archie delves deeply and in detail into home life, all school levels, sports, current events (assassinations, wars, elections, poverty, white flight, etc.), and particularly love and relationships, his own, his parents’, grandparents’, and friends’. No wonder the novel clocks in at 866 pages.

However, because Auster writes deftly, the whole thing moves along at a fairly rapid pace. So, don’t be put off by the massive paragraphs and the long winding sentences. They may appear intimidating, but you’ll find yourself gliding along without much trouble.

Will you like the novel and will you be willing to spend a considerable amount of time with it? You will if the idea of “what if” intrigues you. You will probably pause from time to time to consider your own multiverses. You certainly will if the time periods interest you. Auster does a remarkable job of hitting all the high and low points, a memory jogger for older readers and an introduction to interesting times for younger readers. And, finally, if you click with the fellow who will be with you every minute of the trip, Archie.

So, yes, epic... but could have been trimmed in a lot of places (disclaimer: I like concision). ( )

Tot ongeveer pagina 850 kon ik geen genoeg krijgen van dit boek. Het is het verhaal van Ferguson’s leven, maar dan vier keer opgeschreven, met kleine variaties. Door toevalligheden worden de verschillen groter naarmate hij ouder wordt. In alle versies is hij verliefd op Amy. Hij scheelt maar drie maanden met Amy en zij zit daardoor een klas hoger. In het ene verhaal is het zijn stiefzus en in de andere versie een nichtje. Hij gaat naar verschillende universiteiten of hij gaat naar Parijs. Aan het eind wordt het verhaal erg gedetailleerd met lijsten van films over zelfmoord. Maar ook over de top 100 van boeken om te lezen, die zijn stiefvader Gil hem meegeeft naar Parijs. Of de redenen waarom Celia Federman hem zal verlaten...lees verder >

According to family legend, Ferguson's grandfather departed on foot from his native city of Minsk with one hundred rubles sewn into the lining of his jacket, traveled west to Hamburg through Warsaw and Berlin, and then booked passage on a ship called the Empress of china, which crossed the Atlantic in rough winter storms and sailed into New York harbour on the first day of the twentieth century.

E così nacque Ferguson, e per diversi secondi, una volta uscito dal corpo di sua madre, fu l'essere umano più giovane sulla faccia della terra.
… capì che la musica era il cuore, l'espressione più piena del cuore umano, e ora che aveva udito ciò che aveva udito, cominciava a udire meglio, e meglio udiva, più profondamente sentiva – a volte così profondamente che il suo corpo tremava.
… il nonno di Ferguson andò da Didi sulla Sessantatreesima Est, si infilò a letto con lei e subì l'immenso infarto coronarico che lo uccise proprio mentre eiaculava per l'ultima volta nella sua vita movimentata, pasticciona e in gran parte piacevole. "La petite mort" e "la grande mort" a dieci secondi di distanza una dall'altra – venire e andare nell'arco di tre brevi respiri.
… lo stesso "spazio vuoto" di cui aveva parlato Vivian quando aveva descritto come si era sentita dopo aver finito il suo libro. Non vuoto nel senso di trovarsi sola in una stanza senza mobili, ma nel senso di sentirsi svuotata. Sì, esatto, svuotata come può esserlo una donna dopo aver partorito. Ma in questo caso era un bambino senza vita, un neonato che non sarebbe mai cambiato né cresciuto e non avrebbe imparato a camminare, perché i libri vivevano dentro di te solo finché li scrivevi, ma una volta usciti, erano consumati e morti.
… il telegramma azzurro con la notizia nera che sua madre era inciampata e caduta per le scale di casa a Montréal ed era morta a sessant'anni.
