Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 62: A Model Kit (New Directions Classics) (Paperback)
Firstly, my favourite authors include Salman Rushdie, Mario Vargas Llosa and Jose Saramago, I only say this to make the point that this review is not being written by someone who goes in for light or unchallenging reads. Secondly, I know Gregory Rabassa to be a very good and clear translator, as I have read several other books translated by him. Despite all of this, I read the first 10 pages of this book and understood almost nothing. It is extremely intellectual. Not a book for the educated man in the street.

Don't you think it is misleding to review a book of which you only read 10 pages? Fair enough, the beginning lacks any order, but it is meant to be so. "62: A Model Kit", you don't complain that a model kit doesn't come arranged (: It all falls into place by the end. I wouldn't say the reader needs to be terribly intellectual either, only willing to participate in the game.
