Roberto Bolaño’s “The Savage Detectives”

Reminiscent of Julio Cortázar’s “Hopscotch,” “The Savage Detectives” already makes me feel in Mexico City during the 1970’s. That feeling of belonging to a literary group and hearing what each member has to say, makes me feel almost the same was I felt in relation to Maga’s relationship with Oliveira in “Hopscotch.”

What I am enjoying the most out of Bolaño’s book is the use of different perspectives to tell a story. It is as if the reader is living it too. I feel like a journalist, interviewing everyone at the scene of a crime. I get to hear what everyone has to say. I am deeply intrigued to know more about Cesárea Tinarejo and why she is omnipresent in the book.
