Review: 2666 Part B

User Review  - Michael Mclaughlin - Goodreads

Well it took me long enough, but I finally finished this book. It was rich in images and language but sometimes short on plot, but I could not imagine not finishing this one. Though it circles around ... Read full review

Review: 2666 Part B

User Review  - Eric - Goodreads

If I had to chop off a third (roughly) of any book that I love in order for me to love it as a whole, then I could never truly love that book. With that said--and I'm sure everyone knows the 3rd that ... Read full review

Review: 2666 (3-Volume Boxed Set)

User Review  - Bjorn - Goodreads

True story, I swear: I'm sitting on the metro, reading 2666 when a man walks up to me and says: "You shouldn't read that." "...Pardon me?" "That." He points at the book, whose cover is a Bosch-like ... Read full review

It was over two years ago when I ran to a Barnes and Noble to see if they were selling this book that was being urgently applauded in the NYT Review of Books. They say an educated person gets the ... Read full review

User Review  - Justin Kahler - Goodreads

I loved Savage Detectives and I really liked the first section of 2666. But as a whole I was disappointed. The end didnt have a payoff that warranted the structure of the book. I'm ultimately left thinking this book was unfinished when Belano died. Read full review

User Review  - Spencer Janyk - Goodreads

This book was a slog at times, but it's a marvelous and engaging read if you're excited about your own madness and depression. Bolaño himself seems mad, weaving stories that are connected to one ... Read full review

Review: 2666 (3-Volume Boxed Set)

User Review  - Christopher Gleason - Goodreads

Wow. Just...I mean, wow. This was a solid 4 out of 5 before I started the 3rd book in the set. It rapidly elevated itself to 5 stars, then 6 & (if I was smarter) probably 7. It is certainly a book I ... Read full review

Review: 2666 Part B

User Review  - Nathan - Goodreads

A lot of people told me that Savage Detectives is the best Bolano book to start with but I choose this one instead because the plot seemed more interesting and I was on a mega-novel kick. It has some ... Read full review
