Paz Soldan returns to the short story genre, which he became known for. Love in these stories is an obsession, an elusive ideal, which once obtained, falls apart due to weaknesses and betrayals.

Escritos correctamente, aunque con una forma algo ampulosa, sólo unos pocos de estos relatos destacan por calidad y efecto. Por encima de todos: La puerta cerrada, una pequeña obra maestra del microrrelato.

De los demás, hay unos cuantos cuya idea de fondo me ha parecido cautivadora pero así no ha sido su desarrollo narrativo.

2.5 La segunda parte de los cuentos más extensos me gustó mucho más que la primera de cuentos más breves, mis favoritos: Presentimiento del fin, El dolor de tu ausencia, Amor a la distancia y Cuando tú no estabas.
