Esta es la segunda oportunidad que le doy a A. B. C. La invención de Morel no fue nada de otro mundo, y esta colección me gustó aún menos.
Me encantan las historias fantásticas y las que tienen elementos sobrenaturales, pero evidentenemente el de Bioy Casares no es mi estilo.

Ahora va el detalle de estrellas por historia:

3 estrellas:
- En memoria de Paulina
- La trama celeste
- Moscas y arañas
- El lado de la sombra

2,5 estrellas:
- El perjurio de la nieve
- El calamar opta por su tinta
- Los afanes
- Los

Una antología que recoge historias fantásticas de Bioy Casares, uno de los secretos mejor guardados del Cono Sur. Honesta, llana, sin pretensiones de ofrecer lo "mejor", los relatos de este volumen provocarán en el lector, imbuido en una atmósfera cotidiana, el sobresalto bioycasariano que le incita a saber en qué momento y por qué mecanismo(s) se trastoca, acaso irreversiblemente, la Realidad.

Primer libro que leo de ABC; recopilación de cuentos escritos con un importante grado de erudismo pero a la vez con una soltura que por momentos hasta me hizo soltar algunas risas.
El elemento fantastico en estos cuentos no solamente aparece como acontecimientos imprevisibles sino que se manifiesta directamente desde el concepto de los mismos en varios casos; el lector se vuelve cómplice de lo que estan atravesando los personajes.
Me gustó, sin embargo el estilo, o la estructura de los cuentos, hi

El libro me pareció entretenido pero decepcionante, algunas historias son difíciles de leer a mi parecer. Las primeras historias son bastante interesantes y te da bastante curiosidad en terminarlas todas de corrido; sin embargo, la mayoría de las historias quedan bastantes abiertas a la resolución del misterio o la trama creada por el autor. En mi opinión dichas historias inconclusas, sin una resolución clara, me dejan con un sin sabor en la mente. Adolfo Bioy Caceres me había encantado como aut ...more

Every single story with a young woman in it manages to horribly fail the Sexy Lamp test. I usually try to tone down my feminist sensibilities when I'm trying to enjoy a book/movie/game etc. but this was just egregious.

Had the stories been anything better than "meh," I would have let this just go, but I'm afraid this is not the case.

É um coletânea de catorze contos de realismo fantástico. Eu não gosto desse estilo, mas para quem gosta, este autor se iguala aos maiores escritores internacionais.
O conto que eu mais gostei, até agora, foi 'O Perjúrio da Neve'.
Normalmente, quando eu leio livros de contos, eu noto que os contos mais curtos são os primeiros e os mais longos, os últimos. Neste livro não existe isso, o tamanho dos contos é aleatório, ou o autor tenta intercalar um longo e um curto.
O mais estranho é o autor ser

Ufff. Tiene un estilo muy pesado para unos cuentos que pretenden ser ciencia ficción. Aburrido y recargado. Una pena, porque algunas ideas son buenas.
