Borges Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Jorge Francisco Isidoro Luis Borges Acevedo (; Spanish: [ˈboɾxes] (listen); 24 August 1899 – 14 June 1986) was an Argentine short-story writer, essayist, poet and translator, and a key figure in Spanish-language and universal literature. His best-known books, Ficciones (Fictions) and El Aleph (The Aleph), published in the 1940s, are compilations of short stories interconnected by common themes, including dreams, labyrinths, philosophers, libraries, mirrors, fictional writers, and mythology.

Maria shares her opinion on goodreads.com, "I had no emotional connection to this book. The experience of reading Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges is like reading a textbook. The stories really sound like essays, and I'm still not convinced as to why I should care about some fake encyclopedia or some language that doesn't use certain parts of speech. Too much telling, and not enough showing."

"Baron" from the "bad reviews of good books" website, writes an opinion about Borges on May 23, 2011:

"I have no idea what has happened in any of the stories I have read. There's no plot here. No characters. It's all a bunch of confusing rambling about nothing. We are given no reason to care about the jumbled 'events' that supposedly happen in the text. It's poor storytelling, and yet the language isn't beautiful enough to count as poetry, either."
