Realmente horrible. Se gana el medio punto solo por dos o tres relatos que me gustaron, pero de resto fue una agonía ir leyendo. No me identifiqué con ningún personaje, ninguna historia me parecía interesante, solamente ideas sueltas sin objetivos ni nada claro.
Parece que ten´ja un montón de relatos sin terminar, les dio unos últimos toques, los juntó por su temática y lo lanzó como un proyecto interesante, pero que desde el inicio fue una espiral desenfrenada a la catástrofe literaria.
De los que recuerdo que podrían valer la pena son el relato con una protagonista tocaya de la autora y el relato "El ángel mudo", que me recordó a esos programas de crímenes perpetrados por psicópatas sin razón aparente, de resto creo que hubo reciclaje de ideas, especialmente en el último porque la trama se parece mucho a otro de los relatos de la antología.
El último relato fue el más agonizante de todos, lo terminé con MUCHA fuerza de voluntad. Me angustiaba tener que seguir leyendo, me daba fastidio, me aburría, pero pude terminar el libro. Sinceramente, no creo que vuelva a leer a esta autora.
Really horrible. The midpoint's gained only just for two or three stories I liked, but the rest was agony as I read. I didn't identify myself with no character, no story seemed interesting, only loose ideas without clear goals or anything.
It seems the author that a lot of unfinished stories, gave them some final touches, put them together for their subject and released it as an interesting project, but from the beginning was a rampant literary disaster spiral.
Of those which I remember might be worthwhile is the story with a namesake character of the author and the story "El Ángel Mudo" (The Silent Angel), which reminded me of those programs abot crimes perpetrated by psychopaths with no apparent reason, the rest I think were recycled ideas, especially in the last story because the plot's very similar to another of the stories in the anthology.
The last story was the most agonizing of all, I finished with MUCH willpower. I agonized have to keep reading, I was annoyed, I was bored, but I could finish the book. I honestly don't think I reread this author.
