Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

This turned out to be an engagingly offbeat novel about the pleasures of going with the flow of random events, which manages to convey a counterintuitively positive, upbeat message, even as we see the main character engaged in behaviour that any sensible outside observer would call self-destructive.

Nashe is a bookish, musical, college dropout who took up a career as a firefighter on a whim, worked at it for seven years, then gave it up when his family fell apart and an inheritance dropped into his lap. Since then he's been driving around randomly, using up his money; as the book opens he finds himself taking a crazy chance by investing the last chunk of it in a promising young poker player, Jack. By all the logic of the Great American Narrative, the young man should turn out to be Robert Redford and make Nashe's fortune for him, but apparently it doesn't work like that in Austerland, and instead Jack and Nashe find themselves trapped in a Pinteresque situation, living in a caravan in a field cut off from the rest of the world and building a useless wall for a couple of millionaires.

This obviously isn't a book that's meant to be taken too literally - Auster doesn't seem to have thought much about what it would actually be like to work for seven years as a fireman, and what that would do to your tastes and social attitudes, for instance, nor would it be very wise to follow his advice on the building of stone walls. But that sort of thing obviously isn't the point - this is a kind of anti-fable, a complete inversion of the social and economic rules of life in American society. And maybe a little dig at Robert Frost's elevation of the stone wall to mythical status at the same time? ( )

There is a rhythm to The Music of Chance that suits its title. I saw the movie before I realized the book existed and both excel in their own right. It is by no means the feel good book of the year, but it is a great read none-the-less. For the most part, Paul Auster's works depend on twists, surprises, and coincidences, but despite this, they hold up for multiple reads. I feel very close to Jim and Jack and will certainly read this again. ( )

En Jim Nashe és un bomber de Boston, casat i amb una filla amb una vida convencional, se suposa, perquè no ens ho explica, de sobte la seva vida canvia i comença a deixar-se portar per l'atzar. És l'inici d'una nova vida sense objectius predeterminats aprofitant el que sorgeixi, aquest trajecte finalitzarà d'una forma sobtada. De lectura fàcil però agradable ens presenta la vida d'un heroi que suspites que acabarà malament. ( )
