refashioning the detective narrative into something more art-y evidently is such a tempting strategy perhaps it's a trap. note the murder puzzles of echenoz's house-mate at les editions de minuit, robbe-grillet. or robert coover's recent deconstruction of noir or pynchon's neon vices or lethem's genre mashups or haruki murakami's career-long channeling of chandler... even bolaño wants to be a homicide cop in his next life... that ongoing and probably easily extended list suggests there's not onl ...more

Ako keď si pustíte film, v ktorom je dej tak trochu o ničom, no vizuál vám vyrazí dych. Ak máte radi slovné hračky, jazyk, ktorý ožíva pred očami tak lepšieho autora budete zrejme len veľmi ťažko hľadať. Príjemná, i keď jazykovo veľmi hutná kniha, ktorá otestuje vašu pozornosť a vyžaduje od čitateľa istú mieru koncentrácie, keďže pochytať všetky tie jedinečne bizarné slovné a vetné konštrukcie bolo miestami ozaj vyčerpávajúce.

Gotta say, I really don't understand. If this book is supposed to lead me anywhere, I missed it. In any case, it's simply written (though oddly so) and features enigmatic characters and a funky plot. So for an odd read with no, or little, gold at the end of the rainbow, read this! (Perhaps it's a poorly translated rough draft.)

Étrange. Trop pour être vraiment bon.
