The Savage Detectives, by Roberto Bolano

  • Title:  The Savage Detectives
  • Author:  Roberto Bolano
  • Borrowed from DC Public Library (Kindle Book)
  • Started:  Circa May 2015
  • Finished:  Circa August 2015
I'm going to start with the good -- what an amazing title for a book, right?  Ok, I'm joking.  I did not hate this book, and I can see my college self LOVING this book.  I might have been quoting from this one instead of Tropic of Cancer...

But now that it is almost 20 years since college, this kind of book just doesn't grab me the way it used to.  I would pick up the book and read it for a while, then grow bored and not pick it up again for a couple of weeks.  

Maybe I need to join a book club where discussions over a  book like this might make it more interesting.
