    For most of his early adulthood, Bola o was a vagabond, living at one time or another in Chile, Mexico, El Salvador, France and Spain.Bola o moved to Europe in 1977, and finally made his way to Spain, where he married and settled on the Mediterranean coast near Barcelona, working as a dishwasher, a campground custodian, bellhop and garbage collector working during the day and writing at night He continued with poetry, before shifting to fiction in his early forties In an interview Bola o stated that he made this decision because he felt responsible for the future financial well being of his family, which he knew he could never secure from the earnings of a poet This was confirmed by Jorge Herralde, who explained that Bola o abandoned his parsimonious beatnik existence because the birth of his son in 1990 made him decide that he was responsible for his family s future and that it would be easier to earn a living by writing fiction However, he continued to think of himself primarily as a poet, and a collection of his verse, spanning 20 years, was published in 2000 under the title The Romantic Dogs.Regarding his native country Chile, which he visited just once after going into voluntary exile, Bola o had conflicted feelings He was notorious in Chile for his fierce attacks on Isabel Allende and other members of the literary establishment In 2003, after a long period of declining health, Bola o died It has been suggested that he was at one time a heroin addict and that the cause of his death was a liver illness resulting from Hepatitis C, with which he was infected as a result of sharing needles during his mainlining days However, the accuracy of this has been called into question It is true that he suffered from liver failure and was close to the top of a transplant list at the time of his death.Bola o was survived by his Spanish wife and their two children, whom he once called my only motherland Although deep down he always felt like a poet, his reputation ultimately rests on his novels, novellas and short story collections Although Bola o espoused the lifestyle of a bohemian poet and literary enfant terrible for all his adult life, he only began to produce substantial works of fiction in the 1990s He almost immediately became a highly regarded figure in Spanish and Latin American letters.In rapid succession, he published a series of critically acclaimed works, the most important of which are the novel Los detectives salvajes The Savage Detectives , the novella Nocturno de Chile By Night In Chile , and, posthumously, the novel 2666 His two collections of short stories Llamadas telef nicas and Putas asesinas were awarded literary prizes In 2009 a number of unpublished novels were discovered among the author s papers.

    Can you give a book six stars?

    having read less than the first 100 pages of an 893 page book i can only say that I will be truly, truly sad when this book ends. it is a marvelous epic but with a very tight focus; it is robust without being verbose. each and every page of this book is another kind of love affair with language with wonderful rhythms and motifs= nice translation. A really interesting kind of writing, not like Borges "interesting" but it's as if he has technically mastered the act of writing and having done that, [...]

    2666 non è solo un romanzo. E’ un’epica moderna, composta di tanti eroi (o antieroi) di cui vengono narrate, con grande maestria e rara capacità affabulatoria, le gesta, o anche semplicemente i fatti di contorno che ne possano completare il quadro. Ma lo completano ? Assolutamente no. 2666 è un albero da cui si diramano rami portanti (5, che sono le parti in cui è suddiviso il libro) e secondari, in possibile ulteriore crescita. Che forse Bolano stesso voleva seguire ulteriormente, forse [...]

    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 the search for a German author and serial killings in a North Mexican border city, this book is all about its characters and their stories. If you're looking for tidy closures, like in life, you won't find them. Instead, characters' lives come and go throughout the 5 sections of this book and as in [...]

    I think the best way to describe this book is epic. It was epic. The writing, the stories, even getting through each page was epic and it was an endeavor. There is no straight forward plot line, the book (books) are filled with vinettes that related to an overall story and sometimes don't, but the finished product is absolutely beautiful. Almost every page contains an incredible quote, but in order to get through this book, you have to want to read it.

    considering someone asked me for my number when I was perusing this book in portland I figured it had to be good. I dont know why bram sent it to me here though I get enough marriage proposals without people being attracted to my literary choices. I've read the first 2 books so far have been flying throught- unfortunately it was too heavy to bike 70k so I had to take a quick break from it.

    Contemplava sua moglie e aveva la vaga impressione di non conoscerla. Ma la conosceva, su questo non aveva il minimo dubbio, forse era il suo modo di camminare e di muoversi per casa o il suo modo di dirgli, nel pomeriggio, quando già iniziava a scendere la sera, di andare insieme al supermercato, dove andava sempre lei e dove comprava quel pane appena uscito dal forno europeo e non da un microonde americano. A volte, dopo aver fatto la spesa, si fermavano, ciascuno con il suo carrello, davanti [...]

    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 chance to read five books a year. How many of those will be contemporary? This was new because Americans were just finding out about it, and falling in love with it. But the voice didn't sound like any kind of new thing I knew.The voice that opens up the strange journey of 2666 is old, dead sounding. It [...]

    Literary meandering at its most grandiose. Majestic in its non-rising, non-declining plot.I’m sure there are literary scholars that can find common threads through the 5 parts and 900 pages, but I already have a full time job and the last I checked reading this book wasn’t paying my heath care premiums. I don’t mind a challenge, but you have to help me out a little bit. How many characters are in this book? 15,000? And I curse those authors who give characters similar names. Bolano took it [...]

    This is an incredible book. It was well worth the enormity. It falls between a 4 and 5 for me for reasons I'm still thinking about. Questions: should the five sections/chapters have been published together as one book? Were the revisions completed posthumously, sound? The entire book's chapters seems so well wrought, so wound--even in their lack of closure, their mystery. But the last chapter/book doesn't feel as tightly woven.Is this the manifesto? I think so. "The style was strange. The writin [...]

    2666 is many things -- a literary game, a demonstration of how language can capture a place and a time, and a variety of other things that will interest those of us who like to think about our books. But it is much, much more than that -- it is a angry, almost impossibly intense look at the effect of the drug war on Mexico and the violence perpetrated against women every day. It is a poetic look at people who want to be saved by literature, but who must instead face the burdens of real life. It [...]

    Well, understanding that this book was published posthumously, and understanding that this book was, by the author's admission, un-finished, and understanding that the narrator was Arturo Bolano (one of the protagonists in The Savage Detectives), it was just a very good read, albeit 890 or so pages of a good read. I wonder if the author didn't connect the dots because death intervened, or because he wanted to make it that way on purpose? I intend to read more of his works.

    Uno dei romanzi più interessanti letti ultimamente. E il bello è che non so spiegare bene perché. La verità è che appena finito il secondo volume, m'è venuta voglia di ricominciare col primo.Nota a latere: Boo! alla Adelphi che ha deciso di pubblicarlo diviso così, quando in tutto il mondo si vede la versione in un volume unico, che ha molto più senso.

    Having just finishedI'm not sure what to say. I didn't realize that this 'book' (Like calling the OED a 'book') actually shares characters with Savage Detectives. Also, a tip, take notes. The 'Crimes' section 4 kind of ends up wiping out all that came before.

    What starts out as an academic version of a noir gradually steamrolls into a macabre test of endurance cataloging the ongoing murders in Jaurez. Oddly readable, and somehow personal. A fine trick to pull off.

    Possibly the best this decade: npinopunintended.wordpress

    "un'oasi di orrore in un deserto di noia". Questa citazione di Baudelaire compare all'inizio del libro ed è perfetta per descrivere il libro stesso: un'oasi di orrore (la parte dei delitti) in un deserto di noia (le altre quattro parti). Il romanzo è un fiume di parole che ti scivolano addosso senza lasciare alcun segno. Non un personaggio con cui simpatizzare o antipatizzare, non una descrizione mozzafiato. Nulla.L'unico pregio è la denuncia implicita degli omicidi di Ciudad Juarez (Santa Te [...]

    Quello che attira ne “La parte dei delitti” è la sensazione (poi disattesa) che la soluzione arriverà, dista solo poche pagine, non è possibile che non ci sia, non dopo tutto l’elenco sterminato e glaciale che Bolaño redige come se fosse un entomologo. Metaforicamente si potrebbe dire che in realtà la soluzione o la risposta c’è ed è la Letteratura ma non mi convince. Tutto “2666” e soprattutto “La parte dei delitti” tratta proprio dell’incontro con l’Inconoscibile e d [...]

    5.9 La parte dei delitti (senza indicazione di stelle, il cielo è troppo cupo per vederne qualcuna)Bene, sono finalmente arrivata alla fine, non illesa, ma alla fine.Pensare che, tra le invenzioni, c'è anche parte di verità, mi fa accapponare la pelle. Non mi sono fermata -disgustata- solo per una sorta di omaggio alle vittime. Alle donne, vittime, che comunque non ne avranno nessun beneficio9.9 La parte di Arcimboldi****Ecco, questa è l'ultima parte del libro, ma cronologicamente quella che [...]

    This volume contains a series of five related novels based around the brutal rape and murder of hundreds of women & girls in the area around a fictional Santa Theresa, Mexico (mirroring a similar situation near the real Ciudad Juarez) in the late 1980's and 90's. Through the stories, different people become involved in trying to figure out who is committing the crimes. The book begins with scholars who become enamoured with an obscure writer and moves through detectives, employees of the nar [...]

    This book ultimately gutted me. Just scraped out my soul. There is no question of Bolaño's technical, literary genius bound up in this five-in-one. I devoured it, enjoying all of the interplayg of contemporary culture, religion, morality, mythology, politics played out in the desert of Santa Teresa. It raised some of the bigger questions of contemporary literature for me, namely as a female reader - it is of course, beautiful and daring that these stories/this story get told, but its constant m [...]

    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 I am referring to--I don't love this book as a sum of it's many moving but sometimes blantantly still parts. If you're writing a long or short book then it damn'near better knock my socks off. There were very deep and poignant parts of this book that I fell into easily but also long stretches of.bla [...]

    I really hate this book but also it is so brilliant and beautiful and overwhelming I had to give it 5 stars. And in the end I hated it far less than I thought I would, or than I did when I began it. As I was reading the last few pages I wanted to join a support group for people who have just finished it; parts of it are so dark and horrifying it's difficult to digest. I know there are evil things going on in the world, of course, things are bad. Most of the time I am perhaps naively hopeful, but [...]

    Wow. Just WOW. This book was one hell of an undertaking! It is broken out into five parts but contained about a million short stories in between. The main stories in each of the five parts all link together in some way that is not always obvious at first. I was just happy that the last part brought together a lot of loose ends. Be warned that the longest part, "The Part about the Crimes", is extremely disturbing and graphic. I want to say I liked the last part best, but perhaps that was because [...]

    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 very difficult, bordering on masochistic, parts to read like a 200 page crime report on serial murders and it definitely is a big baggy as most thousand page novels are but it also has more awesome little knolls of prose than any other Bolano book I've read and the plot actually comes amazingly clos [...]

    I have read some thick, dense books in my life, but this one has supplanted them all. I have to say that most of it was beautifully written, which is why it received 4 stars. If you dont know, this book was written in five parts and was originally intended to be released separately3 and a half parts I loved, the other one and a half, was just alright. Still well written, but because it was so time consuming to get through, as a basic story, it could of done without. But that's the thing, it is n [...]

    Took me about ten days total of reading to finish this 900-page masterpiece. And I never ever read that fast. Except for the time I read Bolaño's Savage Detectives in less than a week. Maybe that's saying something. His writing has an indescribable quality about it - it transports you to the settings he describes, from the Sonoran desert and its grisly scenes to the cold realities of a WW2 warzone in the Carpathians. Each section of the book is brilliant in its own ways, and it was a worthy cho [...]

    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 another by confusion, fear, frustration and sexual violence.It's a "macho" book—the reader is invited to celebrate men's sexual violence and capacity for masochism (embodied in the form of a redeemed banality of Naziism), but an immense catalog of brutal rapes and murders also numbs you to the supposed [...]

    So, I'm pretty convinced one should wear a crash helmet when taking on a Bolano title, chin strap buckled. Such was the case for 2666 anyway. Fucking magnificent! It's 900 pages so I brought it everywhere and ended up reading the bulk of it between periods of the NHL playoffs, kind of a perfect fit. Part history lesson, part news report, part novel, a mélange of things all rolled into one big beautiful book. It's the closest thing to David Foster Wallace that I've run across and I don't say tha [...]
