's review

it was amazing

All books that will ever be written exist, we have just not created them yet. This is what Borges postulates with this short story. My initial reaction to reading this is that it is a mildly arrogant viewpoint. But then again, is it really less arrogant than us saying that we were the ones that wrote the book, that it was generated by the human mind? I don’t think we can answer for certain either of these things. What I do know is that this is a damn good short story.
