    About "Roberto Bolaño"

    1. Roberto Bolaño

      For most of his early adulthood, Bola o was a vagabond, living at one time or another in Chile, Mexico, El Salvador, France and Spain.Bola o moved to Europe in 1977, and finally made his way to Spain, where he married and settled on the Mediterranean coast near Barcelona, working as a dishwasher, a campground custodian, bellhop and garbage collector working during the day and writing at night He continued with poetry, before shifting to fiction in his early forties In an interview Bola o stated that he made this decision because he felt responsible for the future financial well being of his family, which he knew he could never secure from the earnings of a poet This was confirmed by Jorge Herralde, who explained that Bola o abandoned his parsimonious beatnik existence because the birth of his son in 1990 made him decide that he was responsible for his family s future and that it would be easier to earn a living by writing fiction However, he continued to think of himself primarily as a poet, and a collection of his verse, spanning 20 years, was published in 2000 under the title The Romantic Dogs.Regarding his native country Chile, which he visited just once after going into voluntary exile, Bola o had conflicted feelings He was notorious in Chile for his fierce attacks on Isabel Allende and other members of the literary establishment In 2003, after a long period of declining health, Bola o died It has been suggested that he was at one time a heroin addict and that the cause of his death was a liver illness resulting from Hepatitis C, with which he was infected as a result of sharing needles during his mainlining days However, the accuracy of this has been called into question It is true that he suffered from liver failure and was close to the top of a transplant list at the time of his death.Bola o was survived by his Spanish wife and their two children, whom he once called my only motherland Although deep down he always felt like a poet, his reputation ultimately rests on his novels, novellas and short story collections Although Bola o espoused the lifestyle of a bohemian poet and literary enfant terrible for all his adult life, he only began to produce substantial works of fiction in the 1990s He almost immediately became a highly regarded figure in Spanish and Latin American letters.In rapid succession, he published a series of critically acclaimed works, the most important of which are the novel Los detectives salvajes The Savage Detectives , the novella Nocturno de Chile By Night In Chile , and, posthumously, the novel 2666 His two collections of short stories Llamadas telef nicas and Putas asesinas were awarded literary prizes In 2009 a number of unpublished novels were discovered among the author s papers.

    1. At the beginning, the story of the book seems so simple that one can only wonder what the turning point will be. Udo, a 25-year-old German, goes on holiday to Spain where he used to go with his parents several years ago. Udo, accompanied by his fiancee Ingeborg, is at a turning point in his life, he intends to devote himself fully to his passion, the wargames. Many characters come to disturb the first days in the sun of the couple, including the boat rental that seems to live on the beach and wi [...]


    2. Goddammit! I’m pissed, pissed and a little troubled. I just finished The Third Reich, within the half-hour. I’m not one to pore over what I’ve just read—rehashing the ‘what did it means’ or a book’s merits or flaws, I like it or don’t, set a course and run with it. A hastily formed first impression, whether with books or people, is good enough for me. Opinionated, I suppose, but it’s me.So, what do I make of The Third Reich? What indeed? Part of me, the part I favor, tells me t [...]


    3. Would you like to play a game? What kind of game? Oh, a board game. Like Sorry or Monopoly? Yes, like that. What’s it called? It’s called 'The Third Reich'. That ‘Third Reich’? Is there any other? I suppose not. What are the rules? You know the rules. Everybody knows the rules. Who’s who? Since it’s my game and I’m the world champion, I’ll be Germany. You can be the Allies. But I think I know how this turns out. Don’t I? You mean you think History is immutable? Well, there are [...]


    4. Τελικά τι διάβασα; Αυτό αναρωτιέμαι, και μαζί με εμένα φαντάζομαι και άλλοι αναγνώστες. Η καφκική, κατά κάποιο τρόπο ατμόσφαιρα, που δημιουργείται μόνο από ό,τι υπονοείται, από διαλόγους που κρύβουν μυστικά, από την κάθοδο του χαρακτήρα σε έναν σκοτεινό τόπο που έρχεται σε α [...]


    5. Ένα στριφνό, παράξενο βιβλίο, όπου τα -εν πολλοίς- ανεξήγητα συμβάντα διέπονται από μια θερινή δυσθυμία, ένα σκοτάδι, αν και τελούν υπό τον Ισπανικό ήλιο, στις ακτές της Μεσογείου. Η πρωτοπρόσωπη εξιστόρηση μας βάζει να παρακολουθούμε από εξαιρετικά κοντά, ίσως σχεδόν κατοψ [...]


    6. Το συγκεκριμένο μυθιστόρημα το διάβασα περισσότερο για να γνωρίσω τον R. Bolano, συγγραφέα του 2666 (μιας και έχω ακούσει και διαβάσει τόσα για το 2666). Αλλά απογοητεύτηκαΣτα συν είναι η γραφή του.Αλλά από 'κει και πέρα η ιστορία μπάζει από παντού. Φυσικά, αυτό μπορεί να οφείλεται κα [...]


    7. Bolano has a knack for creating terror from virtually nothing. There are no real pretexts for his moments of tension but they are felt by the reader as if she is reading the most horrifying passage. Personally, I have never read anything that accomplishes this. Its similar to creating mood and tension with music but much more difficult. Its like a dream where your dream self is in great danger but the whole time your conscious self knows its a dream and everything is ok but the two can't communi [...]


    8. -¿Sigues visitando la biblioteca, Quemado?-Sí.-¿Y sólo sacas libros de guerra?-Ahora sí, antes no.-¿Antes de qué?-De empezar a jugar contigo.-¿Y qué clase de libros sacabas antes, Quemado?-Poemas.-¿Libros de poesía? Qué hermoso. ¿Y qué clase de libros eran ésos?El Quemado me mira como si estuviera frente a un paleto:-Vallejo, Neruda, Lorca ¿Los conoces?-No. ¿Y aprendías los versos de memoria?-Tengo muy mala memoria.-¿Pero te acuerdas de algo? ¿Puedes recitarme algo para que m [...]


    9. Listened to this after my mama found the CDs for $7 and asked if I wanted them (I did). I'd tried to read the hardback when it came out -- didn't so much fail it as I knew I'd need to read it when I had more patience. Glad to have the complete audiobook on my phone now (the future is here). A solid 4.25 stars rounded down since it's not fair to the five-star books of the world to round up. Loved Udo Berger, the meticulous, obsessive narrator gamer, super-German, jotting his daily memories over t [...]


    10. Novela de ambiente asfixiante, en la que Bolaño mezcla una trama esquizofrénica al tiempo que hilvana una historia paralela que se alarga en el tiempo a modo de contraposición.Podemos encontrar, como no, elementos clásicos de las obsesiones del escritor chileno a lo largo de la historia que se desarrolla en El Tercer Reich: personajes extraños, momentos en los que el tiempo parece detenerse, constantes saltos temporales y la poderosa sensación de estar leyendo hechos reales pero que de alg [...]


    11. Existentialism and Shifting Reality on VacationI have read some interesting reviews about this book. Sadly they all seem disappointed with it. I on the other hand found it quite thrilling.At first I must admit that Roberto Bolano was a new name to me, but fresh eyes can usually see things that others cannot. While I think that other readers approached "Third Reich" as a Holy Grail, a lost unpublished manuscript only to find it unpolished I was optimistic. A German war games champion Udo Berger o [...]


    12. This was my third Bolaño novel, (the first two being "2666" and "The Savage Detectives"). Familiarity with where he would eventually end up as a novelist makes reading "The Third Reich" an eerily fun experience. It also illuminates the central themes of his later works. "The Third Reich" is the name of a strategic board game that mirrors the battle chronology of World War II, and Bolaño has made the champion player a young German on vacation in Spain. It's worth noting that Bolaño had a speci [...]


    13. I basically love and drool over every tiny scrap of Bolano's writing that we've been thrown since his death, but this one just didn't have the same effortless beauty that all of his previous writing contains. It's not Bolano's fault; The Third Reich is a previously unpublished book purportedly written in 1989 and found among his papers after his death, and one gets the impression he wasn't quite finished polishing it or else wasn't ready for it to see print. The climax was, well, anticlimactic. [...]


    14. I admittedly and without shame, despite the obvious implications, have developed a fetish for every scrap of Bolaño's writing that materializes before me. I didn't even like his poetry at first (I prefer poetry, especially poetry of Bolaño’s trajectory, to any form of prose), but I have started to like his poetry as well. I can't fairly lay The Third Reich against The Savage Detectives or 2666, or even The Skating Rink or anything else. The manuscript was found among his papers after his dea [...]


    15. Ugh! My initial review was just those three letters. But maybe I need to add more. This book is a perfect addition to the shelf of any reader who needs to convince others that their reading tastes are higher brow than most. Like Murakami and so many others on that same shelf, I wonder if the stilted writing and slow pacing is the result of poor translation. Pages and pages where nothing happens, and where the protagonist seems to be stuck in a slow-motion time warp, make for dull reading. Ever w [...]


    16. Trescientas y pico de páginas de narrativa inane acerca de un huevón que juega wargames, su novia y dos panas que encuentra en un resort de la costa catalana. Cómo alguien habría podido ponerse a escribir tan largamente esta novela sin destino es algo que no me cabe en la cabeza. Una de esas ideas que se le ocurren a los escritores, pero que solo el escritor mismo entiende. Lo único que saqué de este pantano de huevadas fue la curiosidad por esos benditos juegos de guerra. Peladores el Que [...]


    17. I was a gamer once. I played Dungeons and Dragons. And then graduate school happened and all I had time for was Magic the Gathering. I can understand the appeal of gaming, even historical war game, which I never played. Yet the appeal of playing a game about WW II and seeing if Germany can win seems rather well strange.I think Bolano felt the same way because in this book he examines how some people lose the connection to reality when they play games. It is no surprise that his central character [...]


    18. at the time of his death in 2003, roberto bolaño was all but unknown to english audiences (despite accolades aplenty throughout the spanish-speaking world). earlier that same year, by night in chile became the first of his works to be published in english. now, some eight years later, sixteen of the late chilean's books (not including melville house's interview collection) are available in english translation; an average of two per year since his passinge third reich (tercer reich), found among [...]


    19. Just like the scene Bolano flawlessly describes, the first two thirds of the novel shoot past - The Third Reich is a holiday poolside page-turner sketching a summer holiday hook-up between two disparate couples. Ironically, once the holiday season it dazzlingly dramatises comes to an end, so the book itself starts to peter out. It all goes a bit topsy-turvy, tense and nervy.I couldn't put this book down right up until Charley's demise. Then it began to drag: the dream sequences became clunky and [...]


    20. λοιπόν ενδιαφέρουσα περίπτωση πραγματικά. σε καθηλώνει με ένα τρόπο ενοχλητικό, όπως κάπως ενοχλητικά και μονίμως ανεξήγητα είναι αυτά που συμβαίνουν στο αφηγητή. Αυτή ακριβώς η μόνιμη απορία/ενόχληση είναι η διαδικασία της αφήγησης, το άβολο μέτρημα του ευατού του απένα [...]


    21. Imagínate que te vas de vacaciones a un balneario de la costa de otro país. Te vas a encontrar con compatriotas que posiblemente nunca hubieras conocido o personas con las que nunca hubieses pensado trabar amistad. Pero en las vacaciones todo puede pasar, incluso cosas muy desagradables (y otras no tanto). Parece que la vida nos va a cambiar. A Udo le pasa un poco eso. Un tipo introvertido (que no tímido), experto en juegos de mesa (de guerra) y campeón de Alemania en un juego que se llama E [...]


    22. Reader, meet Udo Berger: German war games extraordinaire, on vacation in Spain with his girlfriend. You can read his diary in Roberto Bolaño's posthumous volume The Third Reich. You can read of their exploits, lounging around the beach, clubbing until late in the morning hours, meeting other German tourists and locals with names such as the Wolf and the Lamb. Now, reader, meet El Quemado (translation: "the burn victim"), the owner-operator of a pedal boat rental business, who may or may not be [...]


    23. Muy entrenido. Se supone que es la primera novela de Bolaño pero se publicó de forma póstuma, quizás la encontró no tan buena. Quizás es demasiado impecable en las analogías entre los wargames que juega el protagonista y el devenir de sus vacaciones.Yo creo que está más que bien.


    24. The Third Reich is a book driven more than anything by memories of the past; just as the titular game imagines possible alternative outcomes, Udo Berger approaches his vacation as if it is a lucid dream, with him hoping to relive in many ways his childhood memories of vacations at the same locale, while engineering a few outcomes to be more desirable. Early on, while thinking back on his childhood vacations, Berger says, "It would be interesting to remember the dreams I had here, at the Del Mar, [...]


    25. This review originally appeared in The Brooklyn Rail,/a>,Roberto Bolaño’s lulling prose lends beauty to a dangerous Spanish beach community in The Third Reich, the latest of his novels to be translated by Natasha Wimmer. At the opening, protagonist Udo Berger shares a visceral experience with the reader:Through the window comes the murmur of the sea mingled with the laughter of the night’s last revelers, a sound that might be the waiters clearing the tables on the terrace, an occasional [...]


    26. Sou relativamente novo no universo de Roberto Bolaño. A primeira vez que me dispôs a explorar o seu legado literário não me pôs com meias medidas e comecei logo pelo monumental "2666" - apesar de o ter feito com pouco ou nenhum conhecimento da vida pessoal do autor além dos factos de que este falecera e de que os suas obras tinham quase tantos acólitos como detractores (a maioria dos críticos pareciam adorar os seus trabalhos mas a opinião do publico geral parecia estar algo dividida). [...]


    27. I have included the War tag, though this is not a book about war, but wargames. I was involved in wargames at the same period as that covered in the book, the 80s, when for a short time it seemed as if wargames could break out from the nerd ghetto to become a serious hobby. The book, like all of Bolaño's work, has several layers of meaning, from the risk of taking hobbies too seriously, to taking history as a game, forgetting history's lesson, to a picture of a time and place in the Spanish tou [...]


    28. If your expectations of Roberto Bolano were set up by Los Detectives Salvajes or 666, this shorter and older novel (unpublished during Bolano's life) may be a little dissapointment. But if you just love to know more about this author or come fresh to him, it is a quite interesting book: captivating, uncomplicated and clearly in crescendo.Curiosity about the role that the war game was going to play in the development of the action was essential for me to continue after the first few pages -as I d [...]


    29. Este é um livro estranho. Começa por ser um pouco banal (as férias na Costa Brava descritas por um jogador internacionalmente famoso de jogos de guerra de tabuleiro), alguns personagens são excessivamente estereotipados e dá a ideia de que as pontas soltas do romance são fruto de um trabalho não retocado. Mas depois pensa-se um pouco no assunto e se calhar não é bem assim. Ou então é e não passa de um livro algo enfadonho, mas bem escrito. Roberto Bolaño faleceu tragicamente cedo. M [...]


    30. I have to admit to not really keeping up with the chronology of Bolano's works, so don't really knwo where this fits in his timeline with respect to the Savage Detectives or 2666. This is very different from some of his other works though, where the thread between them and his two major works are a lot clearer. The setting is also very different and it took a while to re-acclimatise to the Bolano world of black humour, intrigue, sexual yearning and suspense.Overall I enjoyed it, although it fade [...]
