Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanna | 1/29/2014

    " BRILLIANT from the first word to the last! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kami | 1/28/2014

    " This collection of short stories was a wonderful recommendation by my brother. Some of the philosophy I know went well over my head, but most all stories were well crafted, especially in character development. Borges does a great job of conjuring up a person, making him real, and giving a slice of his life. Loved stories of gauchos, honor, and knife fights, which were several. Will continue to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thepandey | 1/18/2014

    " Can be a little hit and miss (to be expected from a collection) - but overall some real gems to be found within. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerome K | 1/16/2014

    " I had read an old copy of Labyrinths two years before someone gave me this as a birthday present. It's amazing. Borges is my favourite writer. He writes in riddles, but like the best riddles, the riddles themselves are the answers. This is good for beginners as well as Borges fans. All his best stories are in here and more. Love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stuart | 1/13/2014

    " Borges is certainly the most compelling writer of short stories I have read. What more can be said? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kurt West | 12/19/2013

    " Borges is a deep-thinker and a master of words (at least from what I've read of the English translations). Great short stories and fake essays. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/16/2013

    " What is amazing about Borges? Everything! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 12/12/2013

    " I spent all of 2009 lingering over these rich stories, a morsel here and a morsel there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 12/9/2013

    " absolutely incredible. if i weren't busy being so completely thrilled with the fact of borges i'd likely be pretty mortified at having not read this til now. !!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 11/21/2013

    " Criminally underrated "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 RandomAnthony | 11/17/2013

    " Terrifying it's so good. I don't know if reading this book from start to finish is a good idea. Your head might explode. I would be lying if I were to say I understand all of Borges' nuances, but some of my favorite stories are in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ralph | 10/3/2013

    " Sadly, no time to write a review tonight. Short version: Borges is one of my favorites. I don't think he'd have minded keeping things brief. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nate | 4/21/2013

    " The best Borges collection I've seen in English. Devastatingly brilliant ideas executed as well as humanly possible and funny too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Browne | 9/30/2012

    " I am captivated by this remarkable writer. The stories are like dark chocolate, deep, rich and satisfying, best savored slowly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 9/12/2012

    " The Hurley translation is weak, but you can't beat Borges "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah | 7/3/2012

    " Esp. "The Garden of Forking Paths" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 9/28/2011

    " Is it possible to imagine a life without Borges? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rudy Carrera | 9/14/2011

    " The mother lode of Borges at his surreal best. Absolutely flawless translation, wonderful notes and an excellent weird read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 6/9/2011

    " Makes a great gift "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisabeth | 6/1/2011

    " What is it with South American writers and being awesome? I mean even Llosa who had facist leaning political views and sentiments was brilliant... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Logan | 3/3/2011

    " The Aleph alone is worth five stars, nevermind all the other amazing stories in this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 pri | 2/18/2011

    " an old favorite, well transferred to audio. the stories are captivating to listen to and Borges is just such an amazing writer and that comes out so well in both this translation and in being read aloud. just gorgeous. something i return to again and again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lloyd | 2/3/2011

    " I loved "The Gospel According to Mark" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Austin | 1/31/2011

    " "The Library of Babel" is probably one of the coolest stories I have ever read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/26/2011

    " Shortly into this book, I almost set it aside for something else. Pages later, I found myself recommending it to friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 1/16/2011

    " Reading Borges' Collected Fictions (and rereading Ficciones) is a joy. The force of his creativity, even as he returns to the same themes throughout his work, somehow snaps a reader, delightfully, frustratingly, off the linear path that is daily life. If only all reading could be like this. "
