I love cover art and after seeing the great job Ilana (Smiler69) was doing creating the Steinbeck discussion threads over on the 75 group, I couldn't resist doing the same here! Apologizes in advance if the images don't show up as a nice clean banner of book covers via your browser!
This is the starting and general discussion thread only for Roberto Bolaño's 2666. Detailed discussions about specific sections of the book will be held on the separate discussions threads. Conveniently, 2666 is broken down into the following 5 sections/parts:
Part 1: The Part About The Critics - pages 1 to 160
Part 2: The Part About Amalfitano - pages 161 to 228
Part 3: The Part About Fate - pages 229 to 350
Part 4: The Part About The Crimes - pages 351 to 634
Part 5: The Part About Archimboldi - pages 635 to 893
The purpose of this group read is to allow readers the freedom to read the book - and provide comments on the book - at their own pace. I plan on reading one section/part a month starting in March but feel free to blaze ahead and post comments under the various section threads in line with your own reading pace.
Links the the discussion threads created for each section/part are provided above.
Happy reading and I look forward to the discussions!
Thanks for starting these threads, banner looks great!
I'm planning to read 1 part per month, and will probably start next week.
> 4 - I haven't looked into the translations but I think there is only one translation from Spanish to English for 2666 which was done by Natasha Wimmer.
Thanks everyone.... of course, I had to include in the book cover banner the cover of the book copy I am reading, which is the first one on the left.
I will be reading Part 2 in April.
The crimes section was my least favourite one because there was just way to much detail (and the clincial detachment with the description of each crime got to me after awhile). The last section was my favourite even though I never did get the answers I was searching for.
So hard as it was (I was oddly determined to finish) I am done and am reading Darkmans instead. A giant book full of minutiae.. hmm.
