Is 2666 a “difficult” novel?

That’s sort of the question Emily Bobrow asks in this New York Observer review of 2666.

Readers would do well to come to 2666 with grand expectations and a good deal of patience. A dreamy, treat difficult book, check it demands time and gives back frustration. (“Behind every answer lies a question,” observes one character.) You don’t just read this book, you wrestle with it.
