Multiple Choice

Aptitude. Whatever you do, don’t give a copy of Alejandro Zambra’s novel titled, Multiple Choice, to anyone in your life preparing to take a standardized examination. Zambra structured this book after the aptitude test he took as a young man in Chile in 1993. The result is a disarmingly creative book that reflects aspects of the Chilean dictatorship of that era, and how so much of the educational experience can involve repetition and avoid thinking. This novel can be read quickly or pondered gradually through re-reading. It is among the strangest books I’ve read in recent months, and one of the most interesting and creative works.
