Bolano's 2666

2666: A Novel 2666: A Novel by Roberto BolaƱo

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
Brilliant, maddening, insidious, but ultimately unsatisfying, but perhaps that can describe life as well. I was with this book through the first three parts, a roller coaster of a story, or perhaps a maelstrom rotating around the deaths in Santa Teresa. I really bogged down in Part 4, and eventually skipped it to skim through part 5. So I did not read the whole thing. What I did get out of it I will treasure, but it's a glorious mess.
