    I hope Amazon ships it out fast tomorrow, been waiting for this lil' b***h for some years now. Been a while since I read it, will be great to reread it now that I know how to approach the book.

      in my zone, amazon has basically doubled it's price and it says it's not available. I even cancelled my pre-order.

        RIP my friend, what zone is that? I'm in Sweden where no one reads except for gayslop, detective/true-crime books or autobiographies of women leaders. So no one has heard of Donoso here, fortunately for me.

        What's it about? Tell me about it.

        Just read the book Black person

        Uuuh now that I look at it again the price has gone from 250 SEK to 340 SEK, I'm really hoping my order goes through that I placed a few days ago since it now says there's only two more available AAAAAAAAAAAAA

    I've been wanting to buy this book for over 5 years now since Bolano mentioned it somewhere and said it was very good.

    dark book by a dark man. donoso was a man in constant fear and pain. one could say a schizoid with persecutory delusion and a terrible fear of death, magic and hell. it really shows in his books. i wish i didnt relate as much as i do to them. those are not books to enjoy

      Is this true? I thought he was an atheist. Never read his work but this thread got me interested

        he was apparently sick and in pain and took a lot of meds when he wrote this book

          You'd think the atheism wouldn't stop then but yea I just read he died of cancer and already suffered from other shit before that. I wonder if he become more agnostic as death drew closer.

            the book makes me think he was a communist (they all seem to be from those kinds of countries) so I doubt it

            Ah well, it still seems interesting but the fearing hell and magic thing caught me off guard. Thanks

            It's still a fantastic book. I have a hard copy I bought about 10 years ago that I've read once, fearing to read it again since it's in such a bad shape, then I noticed this one coming out a couple months ago and that it has 20 additional pages previously cut out. Will see if the translation is any good, that's the only thing I fear right now.

            Im a bit superstitious in regard to these things and idk why. I dont mind these types of books when I go in blindly and read them but hearing the author was afraid of something and the whole hell/magic angle turns me off lol. Before reading these books I mean.Still gonna read it though, like I said it sounds cool. Know a couple of friends who'd like this book too so worst case scenario I'll drop it on them.

            You do that anon, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. It's one of my favorite books even though it took me a while to get into it. Just a tip for when you read it: don't stress the details. Trust me on that one.

            wasnt saying hell in the biblical literal sense, but more in a metaphoric way. Donoso was a superstitious man that feared old women and witches (there are plenty of stories of them in the chilean folklore). theres a lot of that in the book. i agree with the other anons that it is a great piece of literature but i still think that is not a book for you to "enjoy"

    Damn I had no idea other people on IQfy would be pre-ordering this
    I’m fricking excited, I’ve been waiting for this book forever. Anyone know of other Danoso books I should read after this?
