Reviews - What do customers think about 2666 (Narrativas Hispanicas)?

El Gran Detective  Feb 25, 2008
Acabo de terminar esta gran obra y aun quiero seguir leyendo acerca del gran Archimboldi, la baronesa, los criticos, los detectives, y el resto de personajes que hacen este mastodonte parecer un cuento corto. No se arrepentiran de leer este y otros libros de Roberto.
Jealousy is a horrible thing, but for those of you awaiting the English translation, jealousy is completely justified. I cannot imagine the anxiety I would feel waiting for one of his books to be translated. Don't worry though, the translation is coming soon.
No una lectura casual  Jul 3, 2007
2666 es extraño y definitivamente no para cualquiera. Es un "tour de force" que se debe leer en ciertos pasajes con paciencia, en especial lo referente a los 200 asesinatos que se detallan en exceso, todos espeluznantes, aunque probablemente basados en hechos reales según leí en alguna parte(?).
Lo interesante es el viaje no el destino. Al final no habrá respuestas. Solo historias paralelas que se unen casi accidentalmente en torno a múltiples y sufridas historias.

El estilo de escritura es fácil de seguir.
La edición española es excelente: muy buen empaste (paperback), papel y tipografía; fue un agrado leerlo.
2666  Apr 26, 2007
2666 es la última novela de Roberto Bolaño. Literatura de signo magistral que prefigura la aparición y constitución de un nuevo clásico latinoamericano. La médula espinal de esta obra póstuma es el escritor desaparecido Benno von Archimboldi. La vida de cuatro críticos se entrecruzará en la pasión y búsqueda de tal escritor, camino que los conducirá a la ciudad mexicana de Santa Teresa. Conocerán en la segunda parte a Amalfitano, el nuevo protagonista, que ha viajado, sin ninguna justificación aparente, a México, en dónde se entrelazará su relato con el de los críticos. La historia gravita, además, sobre la fuerza de escenarios reales, en especial el de la frontera, Santa Teresa, contexto en donde transcurrirá también la historia de Fate, periodista estadounidense que involuntariamente se verá involucrado también con la ola de crímenes que atestan la ciudad. Por último, la biografía errante de Archimboldi (Hans Reiter), desembocará del mismo modo en México, y en el mismo desierto fronterizo que sentimos respirar a lo largo de toda la novela. 2666: atmósfera de descomposición y arbitrariedad que parece regir el destino de todos sus personajes, y el de sus testigos.
The infinite desert lies at the end.   Feb 12, 2005
The last book by the chilean Roberto Bolaño, was also his last will. It is said that Bolaño spent the last three or four years of his short life almost enterily devoted to the task of writing this humongous novel and hoping he would have the chance of finishing it before he died. Fortunately, he did.

Divided in 5 independent nouvelles, 2666 is an excesive example of what modern literature is made for. Bolaño explores several styles and genres blending them smoothly. It is also an apocalyptic noir tale (full of deeply dark humor) of coincidences and hidden references that, in some sense, compiles everything Bolaño did before.

The core of the book, the place where everything converges, is a series of murders of young women in an industrial mexican city close to the US border. An intrincate network of searches and dissapearances correlates and connects the nouvelles in a strange and loose way.

If you like Perec, Calvino, Borges and Cortazar, you will certainly like Bolaño's work. However, before reading this, you should probably check his early works. Nocturno de Chile, La literatura nazi en America and Los detectives salvajes are good starting points. Leave 2666 for the closing, it deserves the honor.
