Composed in the last years of Roberto Bolaño's life, 2666 was greeted across Europe and Latin America as his highest achievement, surpassing even his previous work in its strangeness, beauty, and scope. Its throng of unforgettable characters includes academics and convicts, an American sportswriter, an elusive German novelist, and a teenage student and her widowed, mentally unstable father. Their lives intersect in the urban sprawl of Santa Teresa - a fictional Juárez - on the U.S.-Mexico border, where hundreds of young factory workers, in the novel as in life, have disappeared.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles Puskas | 2/20/2014

    " There's something for everyone here: mystery, comradery, quest, murder, romance, war, cruelty, love, betrayal, humor. Stories are inter-connected and every character has a story to tell! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 2/13/2014

    " Each of the five books in this tome is a stand-alone masterpiece, yet, as all of them eerily converge on a simultaneously real and mythic Mexican border city, the work as a whole takes on yet greater resonances. Unsolvable crimes, lost poets, mad artists, obsessed academics, frayed love, and haunting longings are the many ghosts that walk through Bolano's evocative fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ray Norsworthy | 1/28/2014

    " simply put, one of the masterpieces of the 21st century "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shoshana | 1/21/2014

    " Mentholates the air. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan Messer | 1/9/2014

    " This book was like some exotic vine spiraling out from deep within the earth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evan | 1/4/2014

    " This book was much smarter than me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lucy_van_pelt | 12/29/2013

    " I really tried, I did. I read about 400 pages before giving up. I found this extremely hard to read and pretentious. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 12/8/2013

    " I really wanted to like this, but I found it pretentious. Wonderful concept, not-wonderful execution. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony | 11/20/2013

    " WTF did I just read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 11/9/2013

    " "So everything lets us down, including curiosity and honesty and what we love best. Yes, said the voice, but cheer up, it's fun in the end." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Aguiar | 11/1/2013

    " The writing is beautiful, the story seems without a purpose... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Delarme | 7/11/2013

    " Brilliant. Bolano writes with prose with a poet's sensibilities: Vivid and surreal, he tells his oblique, interlocking stories with an eye toward darkly resonant imagery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul Dembina | 3/25/2013

    " Although this is a Spanish edition, I read it in English. Thought it was overrated. Althouhg the section on the Mexican drug murders was good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 3/30/2012

    " The first 100 pages of part five were difficult/boring, but the last 15-20 pages of the book made the whole thing worth it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/13/2012

    " I have no idea what this book was about... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 7/21/2011

    " A vast sprawling novel evoking Bolano's typical themes. Fascinating but seemingly unfinished. "

    " Marvelous ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gerald | 7/30/2010
