Reviews - What do customers think about Bestiario (Narrativa (Punto de Lectura))?

excelente obra para iniciar a Cortázar  Jul 30, 2001

Estos relatos de Cortázar, nos muestran la voz que en un futuro usaría el autor para sus subsiguientes trabajos. En estos cuentos la fantasía nos invade y nos arrastra como en carta a una señorita en París o somos vistos por malos ojos por no estar en su mundo como en ómnibus; o nuestra casa es invadida lentamente por fantasmas como en casa tomada. Cuando leo no me gusta hacer comparaciones. Algunos críticos equiparan la evocación de Cortázar con la de Henry james y personalmente creo que sus estilos son muy diferentes, como también sus temas. James es mucho mas lento, a veces hasta un poco canson y excesivamente detallista. La única obra que realmente me entretuvo mucho fue una vuelta de tuerca. Cortázar por el contrario no pierde el tiempo en excesivas descripciones y deja que sus ideas fluyan por el texto que se enriquece de ideas y a veces llega al paroxismo. Muy buena obra para empezar a leer a Cortázar antes de leer a rayuela, su obra maestra.

My favorite  May 2, 2000
This is the first book Cortazar edited with his real name. It's the first book of short stories Cortazar wrote. It's my favorite. you can see all the tipical Cortazar things= great short stories, almost perfec, so full of mistery... Check the man and the bunnies story.
