5 - The Savage Detectives, by Roberto Belaño

Wow. I am off-pace this year. Just five books in two months. Admittedly, I was on vacation for two weeks and didn’t get much reading in of the non-internet variety.

I don’t have a lot to say about this book. It is fair, I think, to call it challenging. I am still digesting it, I suppose. Recommended, although at this point I couldn’t tell you precisely why. I’ll definitely pick up more of his work in the future, and maybe will do another post about it when I’ve had more time to think about what on earth was going on in the latter half of the book.

Things I’m in the middle of reading:

  • The Quiet War, by Paul McAuley
  • The Caryatids, by Bruce Omniveritas Sterling
  • Return of the Crimson Guard, by Ian Esselmont
  • The Case for Big Government, by Jeff Madrick

There are a couple of other things, but nothing that I’m far enough into to mention. I may abandon the last two.
