    4. I can t say I m surprised by the fact that it s so highly acclaimed That said, I can t say I found much interest in it, either Truth is, it kind of made the already long hours of the night shift at work a tiny bit longer All in all, The Book of Imaginary Beings is an admittedly big literary achievement that simply didn t touch me.Shit happens, I guess.

    5. Otra prueba inequ voca del poder erudito y sabidur a eterna que pose a Jorge Luis Borges Un completo y detallado Bestiario , en el que el Maestro enumera la gran cantidad de seres mitol gicos y fant sticos que pueblan las religiones, las tradiciones y la literatura oriental y occidental Todas las mitolog as griega, latina, escandinava, china, japonesa, americana, hind , eslava, anglosajona e ind gena aportan sus propios seres imaginarios a este vol men.En lo referente a la literatura, hay casos [...]

    6. Borges explains at the beginning that the book is not intended to be read through, but opened at random and skimmed Well, I read it through, and I don t regret it But that s because I m interested by very unusual things Borges has here compiled from what is essentially a set of utterly trivial facts something with meaning His selection is bizarre, pretty and humorous, and he describes each beast with great variation in tone The reason for each voice only becomes clear after several beasts are ex [...]

    7. Excepcional recopilaci n, fantas a pura El drag n, el unicornio, el f nix y muchos otros, como criaturas imaginadas por Kafka o Lewis Carroll son descritas con un prisma diferente Tambi n editado con el nombre de Manual de zoolog a fant stica Compararlo con Animales fant sticos y d nde encontrarlos de la saga de Harry Potter Bitch, please.

    8. Um dicion rio de criaturas lend rias e mitol gicas e de outras criadas por autores como Kafka, Wells, Flaubert no qual Borges narra as suas origens e caracter sticas N o desfrutei da leitura como esperava porque, al m de j conhecer a maioria, n o me interessa muito o assunto.

    9. This book is great Unlike Rowling s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or Holly Black s Arthur Spiderwick s Guide to the Fantastical World Around You, which provide authoritative portraits of magical creatures in a particular fantasy world, The Book of Imaginary Beings compiles interesting stories and details about a diverse array of imagined beasts, drawing from both Western and Eastern mythologies Borges s aim is not simply to delight his readers with whimsical stories couched in a satiri [...]

    10. Reading this again because I m in the middle of translating it, and it s still as beautiful as ever The creatures described in this book have been a major influence on all my horror work.

    11. Like much of the Borgesian oeuvre, The Book of Imaginary Beings exists on the peripheries of the make believe On a certain level, the work does indeed function as an honest to goodness encyclopedia albeit one that deals almost exclusively with the fantastical But as one might expect, things aren t quite what they seem, and the astute reader should also view the legitimacy even the sincerity of its various mythological claims with a grain or two of salt.One of history s most prolific readers, Bor [...]

    12. I really don t know how JLB makes such exciting topic sound so boring Let s take Scylla as an example She is one of the weirdest monsters a girl with the heads of six barking dogs coming from her waist The story behind her transformation from Ovid s Metamorphoses is equally twisted a guy named Glaucus falls in love with Scylla lovely girl at this point , she scorns him Desperate, he seeks help from Circe, the sorceress He is probably hoping for some love potion to change Scylla s mind To his sur [...]

    14. One of my favorite books when I was about 15 was the ADD Monster Manual, the original one printed in 1977 I read it cover to cover Well, I skipped the demons and devils, I was a good kid There was something really appealing about a world where everything from ethics How does Lawful Evil differ from Chaotic Good to resistance to poison saving throws could be quantified and understood It was a game, but it was at least as large as real life in what it could describe The Monster Manual was the best [...]

    15. Full of creatures and entities from fantasy and mythology, from unicorns to griffins to characters from classic fiction, The Book of Imaginary Beings is a brilliant, sensational book.

    17. If you re a mid to light weight fantasy fan, you should stay away from this one If you resent or are suspicious of the validity of the fantasy genre or just hate it, this is absolutely the book for you Either way, The Book of Imaginary Beings is a lethal takeout of the intellectual validity of Modern Western Fantasy I m talking about Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, all of them flipped over and bellies exposed Of the three, I m fondest of Game of Thrones, but less because it s a [...]

    18. This is a brilliant book It s great to read a literary rather than historic exploration of imaginary animals coming from myths, stories and books from all over the world None is important than the other, they are all equal Refreshing.The most interesting chapters to me were the non mythological ones, like the animals imagined by Kafka most mythology I d heard of, and reading about fauna eponymous people have come up with is fascinating But it s such a shame Borges didn t take the opportunity to [...]
