Written with the enthusiasm of the very genius, the eighteen short stories that compose Final del juego constitute so many experiments of perfection.

Genial Mar 10, 2006
Es uno de los mejores libros que he leido nunca. Me gusta la literatura latinoamericana en general y creo que Cortazar es uno de sus mejores representadores. Los Venenos, Final del Juego y El Rio son los cuentos que mas me gustaron. Recomiendo.

wonderful, excelent, perfect. Cortazar is a GENIUS. That's all. (I recomend "Don't blame anyone")
A remarkable collection of short masterpieces Jun 8, 2000
"Final de Juego" (or Endgame) is one of the most remarkable books in Julio Cortazar's vast bibliography. A collection of 18 short stories, this book is a clear example of Cortazar's genius and mastery as a story teller. All the stories are gripping to the end, but "No se culpe a nadie" (Do not blame anyone), "El rio" (The river), "Axolotl" and "La noche boca arriba" (The night facing up), deserve special mention. Cortazar's style was truly revolutionary, and he managed to shake the literary establishment becoming an obligatory reference and an influence on many writers, both in Latin America and in the rest of the world. This volume constitutes an excellent way to approach one of the best writers of the Twentieth Century.
Excelente obra de un maestro de la pluma. Mar 26, 2000
Final del juego es uno de los primeros libros de cuentos de Cortazar, en este se encuentran cuentos ya clasicos como "No se culpe a nadie", "El rio" y "Axolotl". Cortazar tiene la maravillosa propiedad de hacerte llevar a un lugar magico, que va mas alla de los sueños y este libro lo refleja. Si le gusta cortazar, compre este libro o aun mejor, compre "Cuentos completos 1" que contiene a este libro. No hace falta decir que la obra maestra de Cortazar es "Rayuela", asi que si este libro le gusto, "Rayuela" lo atrapara aun mas.
