Juego de azar

3.58  ·  Rating Details ·  36 Ratings  ·  5 Reviews
Mrozek es uno de los clásicos contemporáneos venerados en Polonia. Autor teatral de extraordinario prestigio y narrador ácido, despiadado y fuera de lo común, sus textos se mueven entre el absurdo más espeluznante y una inteligencia y perspicacia dolorosas a fuerza de lucidez. Enemigo de las obviedades y observador minucioso de la vida común, sus cuentos se nos aparecen ho ...more

Se trata de una colección de cuentos que de media ocupan sólo dos páginas. Y sí, son ingeniosos y originales, pero no he encontrado ninguno brillante. Es un tipo de sentido del humor que al cabo del rato ya me cansa. Es como el tipo ese que sabe un montón de chistes y se pone a contarlos uno detrás de otro y cuando te tienes que reír se para y te mira para ver si te has reído y no deja de mirarte hasta que te ríes. Probablemente uno de cuando en cuando se me haría perfectamente digerible, pero u ...more

Mrozek engancha, pero irremediablemente. Lo cuál es una suerte. "Juego de azar" es uno de sus primeros libros de relatos que tradujo Acantilado y desde luego es genial. A su capacidad especial para satirizar cualquier situación lo une un dominio de la narrativa corta prodigioso, no le falta ni le sobra nada. Sus relatos tienen de fondo tristeza pero la primera vez que los lees te hacen reirte, y mucho, luego queda un poso de reflexión, pero qué momentos te brinda. Más que recomendable para empez ...more

This "Joc d'atzar" or A Collection of Thirty-Four Short Stories is, well, 34 short stories, not longer than 5 pages, as short as half. It's a quite short book, just over 100 pages.

As with every collection, some stories are better than others, and at 34, it kind of becomes repetitive after a while. Mrożek is not bad in his ironic comments about Communism, bureaucracy and human nature, but you can just write so many stories about the same stuff without starting to become like the old guy at the fa

Shelves: novel·la, humor
Relatos cortos, algunos de ellos divertidos, y otros desconcertantes.

Te tiene que gustar el estilo de este autor. Si no, te quedas un poco *mudo* tras comenzar a leer el libro e intuir lo que te aguarda. Esperaba un poco más de este libro. Más humor, más ingenio.

Interesante, pero no impactante.
