Unfortunately, the approach by Saer to obfuscate the text almost killed the book for me. Several times I reached a point where I asked myself why I was continuing on.
To be honest, there were whole pages I skipped just because the sentence structure was too convoluted to understand.
Glosa by Juan José Saer (2 star ratings)
For a book like this I cannot help but wonder why style has been allowed to take precedence over comprehension. Believe me, I tried. As unnecessary as the The possibilities of this book outweigh the realities. As unnecessary as the structure of the book was, hiding comprehension with a Byzantine approach to creating sentences, there were pristine moments of clarity of writing where the book sang to me.
The ending where the fate of Leto is told was poignant. That one section made all that went before, all that sought to tease and confuse, worthwhile. What a shame Saer did not adopt this approach more completely throughout the book. Owing to the obscurity of writing in The Sixty-five Years of Washington, I cannot recommend this book across the board.
This is not a book that will appeal to most people. I did find it worthwhile but I also found it maddening. Maybe one day I will reread it and I will receive greater clarity of understanding.
