Steph and Claire are hosting a read-along for the highly acclaimed book, 2666, by Chilean author Roberto Bolaño. The novel is 900 pages long, and divided into 5 parts, which Bolaño intended to be released in separate volumes. Unfortunately, Bolaño died, and the publishers decided to release all the books together. This means that it’s length is quite daunting to people like me!
The read-along aims to address this issue by reading one part a month, for the next five months:
This seems very achievable, and as there are quite a few people taking part in this read-along I am really looking forward to it.
The read-along might not be the end of the book though, as it has recently been reported that the sixth part of the book has been discovered amongst his papers.
I’m really looking forward to reading it, especially after seeing this quote:
