by Paul Auster
“4 3 2 1” is the most heartbreaking and vivid novel. It is the greatest and most satisfying novel in the collection of Paul Auster. The story is very surprising and sweeping of love, family, life, and inheritance. Archibald Isaac Ferguson was born on March 3, 1947, in the maternity ward of a hospital named Beth Israel which is located in Newark, New Jersey.
Archibald Isaac Ferguson is the only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson. That was just a start and from that point, the life of Ferguson starts to take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. The story becomes interesting when four identical Ferguson who was made from the same DNA looks like the same boy and they go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives.
