Walker Easterling is a retired actor turned successful screenwriter living in the Vienna of strong coffee, fascinating friends, and mysterious cafes. When he falls in love with Maris York, a beautiful artist who creates cities, his life becomes alive in fantastic and unsettling ways. As Walker's love for Maris grows, his life gets more and more bizarre-he discovers he can see things happening just before they happen, and at the same time feels an incredibly strong tug from his past-so a friend steers him to Venasque, an odd little man reputed to be a powerful shaman. Venasque helps Walker discover and unravel his many interconnected past lives, and it is soon clear that an unresolved conflict from these past lives has resurfaced, and now threatens to undo Walker and Maris's love.

I don't know what to think about this book. It is a story about romance, fantasy, and fairy tales. Rumpelstilskin is involved in this book as a secondary character and we find what his motivation was in the famous story from the Grimm's. I enjoyed the twists and turns, but I couldn't give it a 5 star as the story just wasn't quite up to that level.

It started like a normal, somewhat literary, romance, and I wondered why this author had captured people, Then we entered the Twilight Zone and I was captured, too. I have gone on to read others by Carroll and am a fan of his creations.

A really enjoyable read. A wonderful balance of realism and surrealism. There was a few places where I found the writing a little confusing, but that can be an inherent challenge with the slipstream genre and it was never so much that it took away from my enjoyment.

Okay, clearly I'm in the minority here. I purchased this book because so many people put it on their list of best nontraditional fantasy novels. This is not, however a book in the fantasy genre. It falls more in the tradition of books like The Alchemist, that is to say, books of the "the magic is within you" type of spirtualality. Unlike The Alchemist, however, the story takes forever to unfold, and in order to even get to the old, Jewish shaman who likes to watch Miami Vice on TV, you first have to read through 100 pages of nothing. The narrator's romantic interest is a supermodel whom we are supposed to like because she's a slob and drives a car without a heater. Or as the author puts it: "she drove the way she spoke: nervously, a little too fast, but clearly in control." If that kind of writing appeals to you, perhaps you will like this book. But nothing happens until almost page 100 and by that point I was bored to death. The book gets two stars simply because the author can write well. Unfortunately, to me, he didn't choose anything to write well about. If you like Vienna, you might like this book as Carroll describes the city in as much loving detail as he describes the narrator's supermodel girlfriend. But the narrative about the city is just as monotonous as everything else -- it feels like its only in there to prove that Carroll speaks German and has spent a lot of time in Vienna. If you like Carlos Castaneda, Paolo Coehlo or were one of the many who fell in love with Jonathan Livingston Seagull, maybe you'll like this book -- I'm not aiming this review at you, it just isn't my cup of tea. I'm posting so that people who dislike this kind of material will know that this isn't for them.

This is a book that did not disappoint. Much like his others, he sets a believable stage and things go awry from there. Loved it!
Jonathan Carroll is a master with the written word. The worlds he paints center stage your mind with his characters and unique plot twists places him firmly among the best modern fiction writers today. After you read his Vienna your heart longs to see its familiar streets.
