Reviews - What do customers think about El informe de Brodie (BIBLIOTECA BORGES) (Espasa Bolsillo)?

Not excellent, but it is good.  Oct 18, 2000
I am a big fan of Borges. His tales "El Aleph" and "La Biblioteca de Babel" are simply unbelievable. But "El informe de Brodie", I don't know why, is not so imaginative. I mean, the idea of those humans who got in an wrong direction of evolution and finish becoming beasts... Is very good wrote and all that, but is not the best of Borges. If it had came from another writer, I would say it was excellent. But it came from Borges... The other tales of the book are amazing, so a 4.
