Roberto Bolaņo - 2666 - A Premature Review

I'm on page 136, or approximately one-sixth of the way through. This is why I am calling this a premature review. Yesterday I told someone it was 'dynamite,' but since then a certain tedium has set in on me. Maybe it's because I've only been reading it in bits and pieces. The frequency with which the novel describes dreams is at the root of the tedium. I mean, what's more pointless than a dream? Especially meaningless dreams, which they seem to be: meaningless. In any case, that's my only complaint so far.
