Resulta curioso que un joven García Márquez, - estos cuentos están escritos entre los años 40 y principios de los 50 - , esté tan obsesionado con la muerte, los sueños y los gemelos. Muy probablemente marcado por el imaginario popular, los muertos de estos cuentos no saben que están muertos y siguen creciendo o buscan cuerpos donde seguir viviendo o se confunden con el hermano gemelo o se niegan al llamado del hombre misterioso para formar parte de un coro. Sueños de enamorados que nunca se encu ...more

This collection of short stories is amazing. It is a Marquez like I have never seen before. Ok, some of the things can be recognized, but there is something so different. The profoundness is still there. Another thing in these short stories is the appeal to the antecedents – they are seen at a cosmic scale, being the biblical patriarchs. This will be a giant theme in Marquez`s works.

The first story he has ever written is great: “The third resignation” – it is a spark of a great author to be. Th

Simplemente magníficos estos relatos. Mi favorito es: Alguien desordena estas rosas

Fué maravilloso volver a Macondo con el cuento Monólogo de Isabel viendo llover en Macondo, una de las historias que dió pie a su gran obra maestra Cien Años de Soledad. Éste compendio de cuentos de García Márquez data de los años 50 y muestra un escritor con una mentalidad oscura que no conocía, tocando temas como la locura y la muerte. Son los primeros cuentos que leo de Gabo, al sol de hoy sólo había leído sus novelas, y definitivamente me hizo ver al escritor desde una perspectiva totalmente ...more

Oči plavog psa su prva objavljena zbirka priča Gabrijela Garsije Markesa.
Po sopstvenim rečima, knjigu je smatrao, ’ Šegrtskom knjigom, sačinjenom od par loših kafkijanskih priča’.
Pa dobro, neka bude po njegovom. Ne znam šta preostaje da se kaže osim, ’ E kad bi više takvih loših početničkih knjiga bilo’.
Prvi put sam se susrela sa Markesom kada sam se uhvatila knjige Hronika najavljene smrti. Našla sam je nečitljivom. Dosadnom. Odustala sam od nje . Pa pokušala ponovo. I opet odustala spremna da

Gabriel García Márquez'in ilk eserleri olan kısa hikayelerini barındıran "Mavi Köpeğin Gözleri"nin yazarın diğer eserlerine kıyasla gerçekten ağır bir dile sahip. Márquez'in ağdalı cümlelerinin bu eserde de hayranlık uyandırdığına şüphe yok; ama yazarın tercih ettiği anlatım şekli yüzünden okurken dikkatiniz her an dağılabiliyor. Yazarın yazı dilinde gittikçe nasıl ustalaştığının açık bir özeti niteliğindeki kitabın tüm Márquez hayranlarının ve yazarı daha yakında tanımak isteyenlerin okuması ge ...more

Es un buen libro. No me prendió en el início. Se ve un escritor torpe, mórbido y repetitivo. Pero, enhorabuena! Mejora muchísimo desde el cuarto cuento. Pasa de fastidiante, para interesante y inovador. Empieza destruidor y desconexo, como un rebelde sin razón, pero su escrita florece con el pasar de los años, quedando mas y mas criativa y unida. Con tecnicas literarias que te cogen por la mano y te revolven la cabeza. Técnicas como, por ejemplo, el cambio de perspectiva por el uso de diferentes ...more

ماکرز خوندن سخته و فهمیدنش سخت تر
اما یه چیزی که میشد فهمید از این کتاب، بوی مرگ بود.. چه مرگ خودآگاه، چه مرگی که هنوز باور نشده، چه مرگی که برای دیگران رخ داده و نگاهی که بهش داره میشه

Publicado em 1974, reúne 11 contos escritos entre 1947 e 1955 que tem como tema a morte nas suas diversas facetas. Me dói dar apenas 2 estrelinhas para esse autor que eu tanto admiro mas tenho que ser honesta com meu critério de avaliação. Os contos não me envolveram simplesmente por não ter conseguido (e aí vai um atestado de burrice) entendê-los. Surreais ao extremo, viagem total.

"The eyes of blue dog" - magnificent story about love, fate and meeting in dreams.
Claudia Piña
Siempre guardo silencio cuando todo el mundo habla de lo genial o chocante que es García Marquez. Para mi, leerlo es entretenido y releerlo vale la pena, pero no es un favorito en mi estante.

Eso si, cuando se trata de cuentos es mas facil llegar a mi corazón, especialmente con un autor tan peculiar que puede enredar, desenredar y sazonar una historia breve para hacerla memorable.

No leí todos los cuentos, pero solo por "Ojos de perro azul" se merece las 5 estrellas.
Natasha Castillo
Este libro destaca la capacidad del autor de expresar y generar sentimientos, con los detalles propios en la narración que transmiten a su vez la confusión y emoción de todos esos diferentes personajes. Es raro, no se, quede cautivada por muchos cuentos, otro me dejaron con algunos signos de interrogación en mi cabeza.

Algunas historias me gustaron mucho, otras simplemente me dejaron con una que otra duda. Es un libro marcado por la muerte y los sueños, todas las historias van alguno de esos hilos. Lo que no queda en duda es el talento de Garcia Marquez.

Sé que al tema que tratan estos cuentos no hay que buscarle mucho sentido, pero los sentí demasiado rebuscados; definitivamente no fueron para mí. El libro no me dejó con ganas de leer más de García Márquez, pero voy a dar una segunda oportunidad, leyendo alguna de sus novelas.

Si bien tengo un amor especial hacia Gabo; este libro no me encantó. No es que sea malo, pero tampoco es el mejor.

Quizás me fijé expectativas muy altas... y sí, hay un par de cuentos disfrutables y otros que...

I feel a special love to Gabo but I did not love this book. It isn't bad neither the best.

Perhaps I set me very high expectations... and yes, there are a couple of enjoyable tales and others that just...

Più m'inoltro nella letteratura sudamericana, più mi trovo invischiata nel ritmo surreale, placido ed insieme scattante, dei suoi autori. Posso solo dire: chapeau, i miei complimenti.
Questo insieme di racconti è proprio questo: un miscuglio di sentimenti e sensazioni diverse, storie lontane e distinte, eppure legate come da un sottile filo di azioni e significati che lasciano una sensazione di comunione incompresa decisamente affascinante.
Nelle varie storie, infatti, è sempre presente un richia

Os 13 contos que compõem este livro têm um tema em comum: a morte. Um rapaz condenado a viver preso a uma cama, as marcas deixadas numa mãe, depois da morte do filho, a vida e morte de dois gêmeos, a história de três cegos que, depois de terem os seus olhos arrancados pelos alcaravões, vivem presos num quarto e o anjo da morte que espera anos e anos pelo Nobo são apenas alguns exemplos dos personagens e suas histórias retratados nos contos.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars

I only read the short story called "Eyes of a Blue Dog" because of school.

It's about a woman and a man in a single room. It seems really minimalist setting since there's only a single chair, a lamp and a dressing table. The couple only meets in their dreams and can be pulled apart by everything that's happening in the real world.

Entretenido, los cuentos contenidos en este libro son unas muestras iniciales del estilo literario que hará de GGM un premio Nobel, décadas despues. Algunos pasajes son francamente dificiles de comprender, como lo puede ser un sueño.

El libro comprende varios relatos cortos publicados inicialmente en los años cuarenta y cincuenta, aunque la colección, bajo el título de "Ojos de perro azul" se editara por primera vez en 1973. La muerte (o no), el amor y el paso del tiempo son temas recurrentes en

'Little by little we'd been coming to understand that our friendship was subordinated to things, to the simplest of happenings. Our meetings always ended that way, with the fall of a spoon early in the morning.'
Have you ever read a small piece, and it left with your heart slyly sleeping? I feel something of that creation/oddity. It was funny, because the 'eyes of the blue dog' signifies her symbolic soul being reflected in her eyes. The passion was potent and real. I enjoyed this one. : )

I read this book on recommendation from one of my teachers, since we learned about Garcia in class (Spanish) and I was curious what the hype was all about, and I have to admit, the dude knows his words! Obviously I didn't read it in Spanish since I can barely string two words together much less comprehend a book of this complexity, but I will confess that even in my native language I still had to crack open the dictionary over a few words.

Now on to the book. In "Ojos de Perro Azul" Gabriel Garci

Kitabı ikiye bölsek, ilk dört hikayeyi bir kitap sonrasını başka bir kitap yapsak ve önce ikinci kitabı sonra birinci kitabı okusaydık acaba aynı okuma olur muydu? Ölüm ve ölenin hislerinin, beden ile ruhun(!) ayrıştığı anın bu derece yetkin bir şekilde yazıldığı hikayeleri okuduktan sonra sıra diğer hikayelere geldiğinde okuma bence farklı olurdu. Her ne kadar en beğendiğim hikayeler bu ilk üçü içinden değilse de ölüm gibi ölenden başka kimsenin nasıl hissedildiğini bilemeyeceği bir duygunun b ...more

Son historias cortas, cuentos con su toque melancolico, muchas relacionadas con la muerte o con un estado similar a este.
Particularmente me gustó Nabo, el negro que hizo esperar a los ángeles, y Alguien desordena estas Rosas.
Monólogos de Isabel viendo llover en Macondo, es un cuento que se relaciona con la famosa novela Cien Años de Soledad de este mismo y excelente autor.
Gilda Sue
I read this book in English, y'all. And even though I had to read it more than once to get any idea what in the world was going on, after the second time I was totally in love with the whole thing. I won't give anything away for those of y'all who haven't read it, but it damn rocks. I give it 13 knishes and a blintz!

Me declaro fan de los cuentos García Márquez, el primer cuento que leí de él fue precisamente "Ojos de perro azul" y de ahí en adelante todos me han dejado un muy buen sabor de boca.
En mi opinión una excelente opción.

This book is a collection of short stories. I had to put it down because I didn't understand the stories, specifically the third one. And no, it wasn't a language barrier issue because I read perfectly well in Spanish as I do in English.

The prose is beautifully written, as is natural of Gabo, and it has a morbid quality to it since the book seems to be about death & dying. The problem is that the story lines were rather surreal (though that seems to be the whole point and the theme of the b

“Don't open that door," she said. "The hallway is full of difficult dreams." And I asked her: "How do you know?" And she told me: "Because I was there a moment ago and I had to come back when I discovered I was sleeping on my heart.” 23 likes
“I remembered that she had also looked at me in that way in the past, from that remote dream where I made the chair spin on its back legs and remained facing a strange woman with ashen eyes. It was in that dream that I asked her for the first time: 'Who are you?' And she said to me: 'I don't remember.' I said to her: 'But I think we've seen each other before.' And she said, indifferently: 'I think I dreamed about you once, about this same room.' And I told her: 'That's it. I'm beginning to remember now.' And she said: 'How strange. It's certain that we've met in other dreams.” 1 likes
