    One thought on “Divlji detektivi”

    1. I ll bet a lot of us walk around with some real concrete ideas about just who it is we could possibly fall in love with Maybe the specifics of our ideas change over time and even become less rigid, but still we maintain that we know on some level what it is that we want Maybe when we re nineteen, we re convinced we could only ever truly love a man with a neck tattoo who sings lead in an Oi band and has great feminist politics and knows how to cook Or maybe our criteria are purely negative, and w [...]

    2. Since there are so many fantastic reviews of The Savage Detectives, I thought I would offer a slightly different approach as per below.In Part 1, the first person narrator, 17 year old Juan Garcia Madero, tells us right off he is reading the erotic fiction of Pierre Louys incidentally, one of Louys s novels was made into a Luis Bu uel film That Obscure Object of Desire Also, the way Juan speaks of the visceral realists, a group of wild avant garde poets where young Juan is a member, reminded me [...]

    3. Youth is a scam Roberto Bola o 1953 2003 created a very special novel with The Savage Detectives The novel is constantly moving, grinding slowly across the years steady and sure as a freight train, carrying the baggage of our existence towards the inevitable finality of life During the course of my reading, people would misinterpret the title and tell me they enjoyed a good crime thriller and inquire into the plot of the book I clutched lovingly in my hands While this is no whodunnit novel, it i [...]

    4. In this quasi autobiographical story, a group of intense young poets, men and women, knock around in mid 1970 s Mexico City Their lives are poetry reading it, writing poems, trying to get them published in fly by night literary magazines that only they read The intensity of their love for poetry is disarming They exist in odd hours, wander aimlessly through the city, drink, make love, steal books from bookstores, and talk poetry constantly As they get older they become migr s in Europe, mainly i [...]

    5. I am struggling over writing this review The Savage Detectives has become an important book to me, and I m trying to find the best way to put a whole series of associations, emotions, and thoughts into words about how it has entered into my life and mind and heart I have a tendency to hide behind a lot of formal analysis when I am writing, but I don t think that approach is good enough for this review I just met a close friend from graduate school for dinner last week he now lives in San Francis [...]

    6. This novel has caused me great distress not so much reading, but trying to figure out just how many of those little stars to dish out I could have opted for a measly one because when it dragged me by the feet into a room of boredom the middle third it decided to drag big time, only to drag some AAAHHH, let me out , can t take any But as a stubborn individual there was no way this was going to beat me, I huffed, and I puffed, and I set my eyes to work, as sometimes we have to put in the effort [...]

    7. a reviewer wrote that she enjoyed Savage Detectives, but complained that it was about nothing that she read nearly 700 pages and left with this notion proves her a total jackass and describes precisely why this is a great book as with a life, Savage Detectives cannot be reduced to a few rote themes or ideas it s a messy, sprawling jackson pollock painting of a book kept at a distance from our main characters, we hear testimonials by various people who knew them through different chapters of thei [...]

    8. I want to sum up my thoughts about this book using a quote from its pages What a shame that time passes, don t you think What a shame that we die, and get old, and everything good goes galloping away from us But that seems insufficient How about a song youtube watch v iLx__XThat doesn t quite do it either How about a poem SELF PORTRAIT AT TWENTY YEARSI set off, I took up the march and never knewwhere it might take me I went full of fear,my stomach dropped, my head was buzzing I think it was the [...]

    9. I am so late to this party Sorry, I meant to share my review of The Savage Detectives sooner but things got sort of crazy I was enjoying a Cuba Libre at El Loto de Quintana on Avenida Guerrero near the Glorieta de Insurgentes with Ian Graye s visceral reviewers, the self proclaimed readers of the avant garde We were discussing the poetry of Alberto Bonifaz Nu o and L pez Velarde and even the butch queer Manuel Jos de la Cruz from San Luis Potos when I noticed the waitress Jacinta R bin eyeing me [...]

    10. My interpretation of 90% of the passages I encountered in Savage DetectivesI walked around Mexico City for a while And then I sat in a coffee shop and wrote poetry for seven hours And then I saw a crazy poet I know and we argued about Octavio Paz And then I read name drop about 30 Latin American poets of whom I ve never heard And then I wanted to see Maria.But somebody who cares a lot about the history and insider references of Latin American poetry might love it I only managed 150 pages.

    11. What s a Giggle Amongst Family and Friends I bought this book 15 months ago I finished it yesterday It started off as a crisp, thin leafed semi brick whose 648 pages intimidated me I only got the courage to read it when a discussion group gave me the impetus I needed Now, it sits less crisp, but read, on my desk, wondering who will read it next Like me, it s 15 months older, but we are both easing into middle age and are still making new friends We two are friends now, as if we ve known each oth [...]

    12. This review, such as it is, might be considered spoilerish, actually, it s a lotta spoilerish, it s presented in a rambling, perhaps, incoherent manner, and it is tentatively offered It also includes a speculative consideration, for your reading enjoyment one you re very entitled to disagree with Take a little theory, take a little text, stir them together, you get speculation Toward that end I focus on a single aspect of the novel You ve been warned.Ladies and Gentlemen, you want to know what V [...]

    13. I read this book because a friend of a friend recommended it to me It reminded him of The Sorrows of Young Mike and because of the style and the way some of the sex scenes were described I understand where he was coming from But, in the end this book did very little for me I couldn t care about their literary movement whatever that means or any of the characters in general The first section was readable but the second was not as it was of the same page after page I started the third because I t [...]

    14. Nothing happened today And if anything did, I d rather not talk about it, because I didn t understand it Roberto Bola o, The Savage Detectives In some lost fold of the past, we wanted to be lions and we re no than castrated cats Roberto Bola o, The Savage DetectivesThis is a book that is nearly impossible to review, absolutely impossible to summarize, and simultaneously amazing and frustrating Bola o created a novel and a narrative that IMHO attempted to capture the energy, the personalities, t [...]

    15. To do anything well we must do it until death, and we won t have gotten closer to perfection for all of that and it is sad that most of us don t do anything than what was asked of us by something else a long time ago and so our energies are dispersed and lost and we are less for our efforts Not to serve another and not to serve the Self but to serve the inner Void where all infinities collide and collapse If we followed what calls to us most desperately we d all be wanderers, or we d never leav [...]

    17. customer service, how may I direct your call I d like to phone in a review, please Reason I don t know how to do it myself.I m sorry sir As part of terms of service, I could have accepted illness, vacation, out of body experience, picking vegetables in a garden, working overtime, mission control for the Mars rover program, That s it, that s it, mission control I m working mission control It s Be serious, sir Alright, fine I ll work on it myself.Now we want you to enjoy your experience, sir Look, [...]

    18. I hate the description for this novel Anything longer than a single paragraph is destined for bloviation, an Excel graph of key phrases selling itself to as many bidders as possible A long list of characters fishing for the lay reader s empathy Borges and Pynchon for those who don t need that sort of nonsense Please If it gets people reading Bola o, sure, but these days that s the end all excuse for literature in a capitalist society The least we can do is point it out and follow it back to its [...]

    19. I enjoyed 2666 5 stars than this 2666 is engaging, brutal and with far interesting characters 2666 is also cohesive and the plot is intricately built However, The Savage Detectives has heart being basically a story of a male friendship Then what made this friendship between two poets Arturo Belano and Ulises Lima touching was the fact that this was based on real life friendship between Roberto Bolano as Arturo Belano and his friend Mario Santiago as Ulises Lima.This book is very popular a [...]

    20. I am told this novel made some minor splash upon its publication I see no evidence to support this claim I see no particular swelling of interest in this lowly text on I see no ecstatic over the top declarations of lust for this novel No effusive dissertations conveying the message I totally bought into the hype and splooged fifty times over this book like Ron Jeremy catching his reflection in the pupils of a malnourished Cuban trollop I see no substantial body of scholarship agglutinating on th [...]

    21. Because it seems almost impossible to organize ideas for this review, in ode to the author I will present it as so March 1 See Savage Detectives 2666 in Spanish at Wal Mart Yarbrough, El Paso, TX Yes it is easy to see the difference between the English books Steele, Vampbooks by Meyer and Meyer wannabes hey, writers gotta eat too, you know , magazines and the Spanish books Gabriel G Marquez, the Biblia Because L told me to do so, I pick Detectives salvajes March 1 At about page 150 out of 609 , [...]

    22. I have a good feeling about this, based on the first few pages Feels like Murakami meets Kerouac So, grown up Roddy reading meets teenage Roddy reading The locale shifts from Japan and the USA to South and Central America The quest narrative continues with a new backdrop Everybody wins 300 pages later, and nothing has happened yet, so I m having second thoughts about my first impression It s not at all clear what the big deal is supposed to be about this book I mean, seriously, nothing has happe [...]

    23. This review has some vague spoilers, just as a warning It s really tough for me to do a proper analysis without spoilers This is a brilliant book This is a frustrating book.This is due to the brilliance and the frustration of its second section, the largest section of the Chilean born Roberto Bola o s debut novel This, the book s namesake, is a sprawling and splintered affair that features an array of thrilling locales that would make Roland Emmerich s budget committee blush From Mexico to Paris [...]

    24. I wish there was a proper way to splutter in written form I mean, it s not that I didn t like this book, really I certainly didn t not like it I just just I dunno, I guess I just didn t get it like everyone else seems to ve As I said somewhere else, given that everyone really lost their shit over this book I mean, did you see brian s review Or Andrew s Or freaking Josh s , I guess I was really expecting to have my whole brain rearranged by it, like when I first read Cort zar And that definitely [...]

    25. Always remember you are unique, just like everyone else Author UnknownThere are no true individuals Bola o knew this Juan Garc a Madero did not know this When we were 17 years old, none of us knew this either Sometimes when we re 30 we still don t know this And if we re lucky unlucky smart stupid maybe when we re 60 we won t know this then either.This book is a lingering smoke cloud, a feeling that will not go away, impending doom , recognition , a satire of the literary world and a homage to wo [...]

    26. How to solve the Savage Detective riddle Three visceral realists, an abused prostitute, a sphinx like poet and a hounding masochistic pimp Savage Detectives is a segmented nostalgia of barefaced narratives, miscellaneous testimonies and a thrilling road trip It comes across as an intricate brainteaser that has passed the test of time by how artistic and diagnostically zealous youth can be This is my third Bolano manuscript and I dearly yearn to pen an Ode to this bohemian soul However, conferrin [...]

    28. I give up I will consider this as read since the 300 pages or so that I read felt like 3 books It took me than 3 weeks to get here and I just can t continue I do not have much time to read day and I prefer to read something I enjoy The first part was, strangely, both very gripping and incredibly boring I wanted to read something else but ended up reading Savage Detectives but while reading it I was bored Now, it just feels boring I understand the book s merits, I admired the structure ideea and [...]

    29. Let s pretend this is the picture on the cover The Savage Detectives seems like a book written entirely between the lines The plot consists of several people talking about their encounters with the poets Arturo Belano and Ulises Lima, the two creators of the visceral realist gang The feeling of lost time, lost friends, lost ambitions builds with each of their testimonies so that by the last page the last sentence, What s outside the window you have the feeling of being punched in the gut And tha [...]

    30. The first one hundred and fifty pages didn t do a whole lot for me I thought the narrator of the initial diary section was pompous, annoying, and full to overflowing with name dropping Not helping matters, the next couple hundred pages of mixed narratives were sporadically on and off At about the halfway point I recalled what Mike Reynolds said in a review or thread somewhere, something along the lines that there are two different kinds of readers Those who hear words while reading, and those wh [...]
