2666 Characters & References

As part of the bolano-l  group read of 2666, I've started a Characters & Reference document to help keep track of major and minor characters.

View the 2666 Characters and References document

We've only just started, so it's not too late to join in!

Also, here's a quick interview with Natasha Wimmer, who was the translator for both 2666 and The Savage Detectives.


And here's an article in Time that lists 2666 as the best book of 2008.

Thanks for breaking down the characters. 2666 is a fantastic book. Still working my way through part three! Can't wait to finish!

Thanks for the note! I'm slowly working on it as I get through the book. I haven't had a lot of time to read recently so I've stalled a bit, but I expect that to change shortly.

I'm glad you enjoyed it!
