Another great book - just seem to be reading excellent books lately! I can't believe I hadn't come across Paul Auster before. He writes such a good 'yarn' and you get completely swept into the characters' world!

This book has to have the best opening lines ever...
"I was twelve years old the first time I walked on water. The man in the black clothes taught me how to do it, and I'm not going to pretend I learnt that trick overnight."

The voice of "Walt" leads you through his life, and he's an intriguing character. He's mentored and trained by the myseterious Master Yehudi, and he learns to fly. It's also about relationships, and the strength of the human spirit. At times, the style and content reminded me of Richard Bach's "One" and bizarrely also of Bulgakov's "The Master & Magherita"
Read it! Can't wait to read more of his stuff...
