Los Detectives Salvajes by Roberto Bolaño
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Strange book with a very different structure. The story about the two main characters is told through a collection of narratives collected from other 50 or so characters who interacted with the characters. These narratives are book ended by the journal of a different character who really does not appear in the middle part of the book. At times, the structure could be disorienting, but overall I liked it.
There is a lot of social and literary commentary embedded in the story, some of it which was beyond my expertise (the literary part).
