There are no discussion topics on this book yet. E lo ritrovai quasi per caso. I’m sure I don’t need to spell it out. It is a story of murder, obsession, small-time political corruption, the immigrant experience in Spain, and because it is Bolanomadness, sex, violence, ghosts, poets who are detectives, society’s dropouts, nightmare One of the New Directions series that came out pisya year, The Skating Rink is a brief, intense, and very memorable novel from Bolano.

I wanted Monsieur Painbut some lightning snarfler got in there first, leaving me with this charming whodunit hoelo by three quite samey-sounding men. Nuria transformed into a series of images that had nothing to do with the girl I know. By using our website you agree to our use of cookies.

Ma quando afferro il telefono con le mani compresi che stavo dormendo sotto un sonno profondo. Their statements continually exude detail that is clearly meaningful; but deprived of the context provided by full knowledge of the crime, the reader is left only with a vague sense of weightiness. Add a murder mystery with a genuinely surprising set of twists and turns. Will try to read again someday since it feels like it’s maybe better than it seemed to me — some characters and relations and scenes may have been smeared!

Me lleno de curiosidad al escoger este libro, algo me lo atrajo hacia mi. Una de mis partes favoritas es cuando dos de las versiones cruzan en una misma escena.

Despite the narrator pyrotechnics, this is actually the most reigned in I’ve ever seen Bolano. Sure there are the usual diversions about sex, pop culture, and poetry. En el pueblo de Z que es parecido al pueblo de X o Y de la zona catalana hay un palacio, el Palacio Benvingut.

Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Read it distractedly thanks to wailin Read this in way too many sittings, sort of failed it I think, since it’s dense and narrated by three not-so-distinct voices, like a polyphonic warmup for the Savage Detectives someone on here said something similar.

No So once again I find myself pulled into the world of novellas and short fictions, knowing I can finish these books in a day or two, feeding my book addiction with quicker and thicker thrills, piling up the novels until somehow the outside world subsumes itself into the fictional realm, leaving me free to write my own lurid and oblivious end.

We have a governmental official, second-in-command to the woman mayor of the city; an opportunistic entrepreneurial businessman who runs tourist gift shops and bars; a down-and-out Chilean poet who could that be? That of a Chilean with pretensions of a writer; that of a mexican, also a poet, who survives by working as a nightime security guard at a camping site, and that of an entrepreneurial Catalan involved in politics, capable of anything to draw the attention of a beautiful and whimsical ice skater.

If this rating were a rap song it would be telling you to Pop Champagne and fill your cup with Patron. I’m sure there’s more to it, though: The Chilean becomes involved with a beautiful young ice skater named Nuria, golano the poet falls in with a waifish young woman named Caridad, who constantly rooberto around Z with an aging opera pitsa and always carries a sharp butcher knife against her abdomen.

Working out who the victim will be is fun; working out the murderer much more difficult and unimportant. Come se mi diedero dei sonniferi. Sin dudas este goberto libro del escritor no fue unos de los mejores. Lo chiedo in prestito e mi sono perso con lui per qualche giorno.
