Reviews - What do customers think about El Libro De Los seres Imaginarios/The book of the imaginery beings (Spanish Edition)?

The Best Book In The World  Jun 14, 2007
I love this book and have probably read it about 15 times in the course of a long life. In his introduction Borges mentions "the pleasure of useless erudition" so I must be that I am particularly sensitive to this pleasure. But it is really a book for everybody. It's such an odd subject I would have at first thought it might have a small audience but I have turned lots of friends on to it and they like it too. None of can adequately express just what it is that makes this book so enchanting, and how reading it takes us pleasurably miles away from the world of telephones, anger, bank statements, and cellphones.
Seres fantásticos de todos los tiempos.   Apr 19, 2005
Jorge Luis Borges, reconocido autor de primerísima pluma, alcanza con este libro a presentarnos con algunos de los personajes imaginarios que conoció y conoce la humanidad.

Nos trae seres de distintas culturas a través de distintos tiempos de una manera breve, más descriptiva que biográfica.

Este libro es para tenerlo en la mesa de noche donde da mejor paso al camino imaginario.
