Soo - read Zeitoun.....interesting but definitely a heavy-handed political statement from Dave Eggers. Wish he would go back to the fiction he wrote. Like his style.

On the other hand Iain Pears' Dream of Scipio is wonderful. Gripped by it from the first sentence. Also started The Golden Mean by Canadian writer Anabel Lyon,and again the style and story appeal to me. Why is it that we can return again and again to classic themes and never tire of them? Still in the middle of 2666 - apparently Bolano has quite a repertoire and Chapters has a whole section on his work now! I thought he wasn't that prolific. Jury still out on 2666 though I did enjoy Part 1.

Looking forward to reading Ilustrado next....
