Sinuously constructed in four interlocking parts, Invisible opens in New York City in the spring of 1967 when twenty-year-old Adam Walker, an aspiring poet and student at Columbia University meets the enigmatic Frenchman Rudolf Born, and his silent and seductive girlfriend Margot. Before long, Walker finds himself caught in a perverse triangle that leads to a sudden, shocking act of violence that will alter the course of his life. Three different narrators tell the story, as it travels in time from 1967 to 2007 and moves from New York to Paris and to a remote Caribbean island in a story of unbridled sexual hunger and a relentless quest for justice. With uncompromising insight, Auster takes us to the shadowy borderland between truth and memory, authorship and identity to produce a work of unforgettable power that confirms his reputation as one of America's most spectacularly inventive writers.… (mais)

Hur en bok som handlar om så lite kan vara så spännande! En bladvändare för mig. Är kanske skadad av all kriminallitteratur. Tyvärr blir slutet lite snopet, om än intressant. ( )

This is a complex novel, both structurally and plot-wise. It consists of 4 parts, the first three of which take place in 1967, and the fourth taking place 40 years later.

Part I is narrated in the first person by Adam Walker. It is the spring of 1967 and he is a student at Columbia when he meets Rudolf Born, a visiting professor from France. Born and his girlfriend Margot befriend Adam, and Born offers to finance a literary magazine for Adam to develop and edit, something Adam considers a dream come true. He fully intends to accept the challenge, until he witnesses a shocking act of violence that changes his life forever.

In Part II, we learn that Adam has sent the first-person narrative set forth in Part I to his former college roommate Jim, who is now a successful writer. As the novel continues, the framing device for the remainder of the book becomes one in which Jim pieces together in various ways the remainder of Adam's story. Adam wrote Jim that he wanted to continue with his story, but feels blocked and seeks advice. Jim advises that Adam consider telling the story in something other than the first person. We then read the continuation of Adam's story, ostensibly, as with Part I, written by Adam. The story narrated in Part II takes place over the summer of 1967 and is narrated in the second person ("You"). In this section, Adam bides time in New York sharing an apartment (and possibly more) with his sister Gwynn, as he awaits traveling to Paris in the fall for his junior year abroad.

Part III details what happened while Adam was in Paris in the fall of 1967. This section is narrated in the third person, and is ostensibly written by Jim from detailed notes Adam left for him.

The final part takes place forty years after the events which occurred in 1967. Jim has travelled to Paris, and while there seeks out some of the people with whom Adam had interacted in the fall of 1967. Adam's story (and Born's) is finally completed by the diary entries of one of those people, originally written in French and translated.

Throughout, beyond the story Adam wanted to tell about the life-changing events of 1967, questions are being raised about whether a story in a novel can be "true," what makes it true, does it make a difference who tells the story or how it is told? All sorts of issues are raised about the art of writing. I suppose this can be considered meta fiction, which I usually like.

In fact, I liked this one a lot (but then, I've liked most books by Auster that I've read), and I definitely think it deserves a place on the 1001 list. I realize that maybe I haven't made it sound that interesting in that I've kept the plot details rather vague, but I've always found Auster's plots to be imaginative and engaging, and this one was no exception.

Recommended.

I've heard lots of good things about Paul Auster throughout the years,but for some reason or another,never got around to reading any of his work. Now that I finally have; I realize I've been missing out on a pretty good thing. Invisible, although populated by characters which I found completely unlikeable,was a very interesting read full of incest, murder,espionage... I could go on for quite awhile... ( )

Sterk verhaal. Helder geschreven. ( )
  erikboekenwurm | Jun 17, 2023 |
Another brilliant and thought-provoking volume from Paul Auster. The shift in POVs between the three sections for the 'novel' was a nice touch, as was the introduction of the notion that our main protag was also an unreliable narrator. As usual, Auster delivers another must-read book that is modest in length but not in emotion. ( )

In dem Dutzend Romane, die Auster seit der berühmten "New York-Trilogie" (1987) veröffentlicht hat, treten alle Naselang Rivalen des Erzählers auf den Plan und schildern zentrale Passagen ganz anders. Figuren, die mit Vorliebe "Paul Auster" heißen, drehen undurchsichtige Dinger, versprechen viel und halten wenig. Zu allem Überfluss umtosen - mit der Härte und Regelmäßigkeit eines Monsuns - den ohnehin betröppelten Leser theoretische Tiraden über das Gleißnerische von Sprache und Identität. Austers neuester Streich "Unsichtbar" ist da keine Ausnahme. Und eben doch.

Dette er ganske enkelt genial romankunst
Paul Auster har laget et fullkomment mysterium.
Med «Usynlig» har han kvesset skriveklørne; boka er fiks, leken, uhyggelig og så fullstendig gjennomtenkt at en gisper etter luft underveis.

Auster vet nøyaktig hva han driver med — ikke ett ord virker overflødig i hans univers, hvor mord, mysterier og incestuøse forhold kreerer kriblinger og ubehag i sofakroken.

Verglichen mit dem große Joseph Conrad kann Paul Auster relativ wenig. Aber vielleicht sollten wir Paul Auster einfach als Autor gehobener Unterhaltungsliteratur betrachten. Und da schneidet er dann plötzlich ziemlich gut ab. Seine Prosa ist wenig inspiriert, aber sie rutscht selten ins ganz Dumme, Klischeehafte ab. Seine Romanfiguren sind aus Pappmaché gemacht, aber die Konstruktion des Plots ist clever. Es gibt genug Sex und genug Crime, um den Leser bei Laune zu halten. Man verbringt einen angenehmen Nachmittag mit dem Zeug und hat hinterher nichts davon im Herzen zurückbehalten.

Typisch Auster, zo’n spel met identiteiten en verhalen-in-verhalen. (‘Om de waarheid te vertellen, moeten we die fictionaliseren’ zegt Jim tegen het einde van de roman.) Soms leidt het tot niets, zoals in de romans van de afgelopen jaren die alledrie té bedacht, té bloedeloos en te zeer op de automatische piloot geschreven waren. Maar in Onzichtbaar werkt het, waarschijnlijk omdat de personages interessant zijn.

(...) Je zou het op basis van de bovenstaande citaten misschien niet zeggen, maar Onzichtbaar is ook stilistisch een geslaagde roman. Auster behoort niet tot de grote woordkunstenaars van de Amerikaanse literatuur; hij schrijft de meeste van zijn boeken in de ‘hardboiled’ stijl die hij zich eigen gemaakt heeft toen hij in het begin van zijn carrière detectives schreef. Maar in Onzichtbaar zijn prachtig geschreven passages te vinden (...) Des te jammerder is het dat de roman niet al te vloeiend is vertaald, of beter gezegd: een beetje ambtelijk en soms veel te letterlijk.
