Como casi toda antología de relatos cortos, el resultado es un tanto irregular, combinando relatos excelentes como los que abren y cierran el libro "El hijo" y "El Más Alla", con otros mucho más flojos a mi parecer como "Los Perseguidos". Aún así le doy cuatro estrellas porque pese a la diferente calidad de los relatos, por lo general la mayoria de ellos me parecen muy recomendables.
