I read Bringing Down The House
this weekend. It was awful and full of lies. I'm not sure why I wasted my time. Probably because reading it required no brainpower. I'm also a hundred pages into 2666
which is a lot better, but requires more concentration. I wish I had an English Professor on call that I could get to explain certain things to me like, why does Bolaño occasionally have sentences go on for pages wandering from topic to topic without a period to be seen. Clearly this was a conscious choice, but I don't understand what point he's making.
