    1. FINAL REVIEWWe have all experienced different dimensions in our life, to name just three: waking, deep sleep and dreaming. Yet when it comes to describing or imagining the afterlife, I’ve read very few accounts postulating how awareness could shift between various levels; rather, life (or lack of life) after death tends to be portrayed as an uninterrupted hum all at one frequency, the three major frequencies: 1) awareness within a specific form, like a light body 2) formless awareness, that is [...]

    2. This is a masterful collection by a writer of genius. I believe The Aleph is just as good as Fictions," and Fictions is as good as any book of short pieces produced in the 20th Century. If you like paradoxes, puzzles, doppelgangers and labyrinths used as metaphors for the relation of microcosm to macrocosm and the fluid nature of personal identity, then this is the book for you. These stories are profound, but they are written in such an entertaining traditional narrative style that they might o [...]

    3. Down and Out in Lovecroft and BorgesAt some point (but not today) I intend to do a review of Borges and Lovecroft together. Not to say anything important but merely to understand how they depend on one another. I think it is clear that Borges borrowed from Lovecroft. And I think it is just as clear that we read Lovecroft in light of what Borges did with the genre of fantasy/horror. At least a half dozen stories have been identified by readers as ‘cross-overs’ as it were from Lovecroft to Bor [...]

    4. “Anything can drive a person insane if that person cannot manage to put it out of their mind” – even… “a map of Hungary”! Obsession is the unifying theme of virtually all these stories, which is apt, because I’m beginning to be a trifle obsessed myself. It is perhaps most central to The Zahir.I have the Collected Fictions (with copious translator's notes), but am splitting my review of that into its components, listed in publication order: Collected Fictions - all reviews. This is [...]

    5. Telaraña de historias y leyendas absurdas y maravillosas, llenas de elementos fantásticos pero con las que viajas por todo el mundo y a través del tiempo. He disfrutado mucho de esta lectura, aunque hay un puñado de relatos que no llegué a apreciar o entender, en cambio otros como 'El inmortal', 'Emma Zunz', 'La casa de Asterión', 'Deutsches Requiem' y 'El Alpeh' me fascinaron completamente y no puedo dejar de darles vueltas. Borges consigue algo que nunca me había pasado, que según term [...]

    6. Stevenson, Wells, Twain, Verne,…the Arabian Nights, were some of the references for Borges very early on, back in Argentina. At his father’s library, he read a lot. Then he went to Europe Borges: “American, old and a blind poet “ he realized once, later in life. Afterwards he had to live up to it and face old age as a “time of happiness”; the “animal being dead…man and soul go on”. Borges: “a shy man who longed for oblivion” (“siempre tímido”, as he said of himself); b [...]

    7. This book of short tales by Jorge Luis Borges is perhaps the most brilliant compendium of fantastic stories that the author has written. Among others, we find: "The immortal", "The dead", "The theologians", "History of the warrior and the captive" and the central story that has the most eloquent burden of mystery and metaphysical depth: "The Aleph".In this last story, the author in person is the protagonist. After the death of his beloved friend Beatriz Viterbo, Borges does not miss the appointm [...]

    8. You're avoiding a single star, Borges, simply because I try my best not to dish them out. There's little value in reading if one is going to try consider ways to dislike doing it. I love your ideas, but not your executions. Reading through the contents list, I can easily choose five or six stories whose very conception alone excite me(The Immortal, The Zahir, The Writing of The God, The House of Asterion), but you continually bashed me over the head with names, places, dates, literary and histor [...]

    9. I know why I didn't write a review. I wrote several reviews about Borges' books and I got tired of saying how amazing this writer was. Is. Will always be. This is one of the greatest short stories collections I've ever read. There are ordinary situations combined with magical events, sometimes very subtle, sometimes not. But it's there. And they're all beautifully written. Stories like "El Inmortal", "Emma Zunz", "La casa de Asterión" or "Los teólogos" are outstanding pieces of literary work t [...]

    10. عالم بورخيس القصصي عجيب في بعض أحيان بتكون الفانتازيا والغرابة في النص الأدبي طريفة وممتعة وفيها صور خيالية جميلة وأحيان أخرى تكون غاية في الغموضبعض القصص في هذه المجموعة الخيال فيها مثير للدهشة, وأخرى أفكارها مفهومة إلى حد ما وبعضها الكاتب نفسه بيدخل فيها فكأنها أجزاء من ح [...]

    11. After reading Borges my brain usually feels fried, so excuse all the nonsense in this review. My intention was never to write anything about it, to let it flow, to carry on with my life. But trust me, after reading this magnificent writer, and specially such writings as the ones collected in El Aleph, life's never the same. My brain may be fried, but my soul feels somewhat soothed.Reading him is like facing the Zahir: something that seeds in one's soul a never-ending obsession in life's ground [...]

    12. Me costó mucho terminar este libro. Tenía ganas de leerlo por decir "ya leí a Borges en algún punto de mi vida", pero realmente fue una lectura algo difícil. El contexto histórico, fantasioso y en ciertos momentos filosóficos fueron muy abrumantes. Seguramente me pareció eso debido a que venía leyendo estilos y géneros muy distintos al de cuentos fantaseosos con un nivel de profundidad alto (en la mayoría de ellos). Es el primer libro con el que experimento la convicción de volver a [...]

    13. This is the 2nd time I try to read these stories. This time I tried in Spanish (very bad idea- too difficult for my level) and then came back to the Romanian translation. I liked the ideas (such as for the Immortals) but the author continually put references of different names, places, dates, literary and historical citations that in my opinion made the story unpleasant to read. I understand the author is very well read and he drew inspiration from all the book he cites (Iliad, Hamlet, etc) but [...]

    14. Immenso BorgesSe leggendo “Finzioni” non si può fare a meno di ammirare Borges per l’originalità inventiva e il geniale virtuosismo, leggendo “L’Aleph” si impara ad amarlo incondizionatamente. O almeno a me è successo così. A chi si accostasse per la prima volta a questo scrittore, consiglierei pertanto di iniziarne la conoscenza da quest’opera, che a mio avviso ne rivela più intensamente ed esaustivamente le eccezionali qualità narrative e il singolarissimo profilo intellett [...]

    15. "Que o céu exista, mesmo que o nosso lugar seja o inferno."Há dias (por "culpa" de uma amiga do ) ouvi uma pequena história de Jorge Luis Borges que me impressionou:Um dia, junto das pirâmides do Egipto, Borges apanhou um punhado de areia, largou-o mais à frente e disse: "Estou a modificar o deserto. e, através da sua escrita, modifica a mente de quem o lêDos dezassete contos, incluídos neste livro, não gostei muito da maior parte deles. Ou porque não os compreendi (perdida em labirint [...]

    16. Bundan yaklaşık bir yıl önce elime aldım Alef'i ve ilk öyküleri okudum. Ama Borges içine girilmesi, anlaşılması çok zor bir dünya yaratmıştı. Bir hikâyenin içinde anlamadığım ve hikâyenin hiçbir yerinde açıklanmayan onlarca gönderme, referans oluyordu ve bazen bunlar hikâyenin meramını anlamamı engelliyordu. Sinirlendim ve Borges'i anlaşılmayacak bir şeyler yazdığı için kibirli buldum.Üstünden aylar geçti ve ben kitaba hiç dokunmadım. Sonra geçenlerde a [...]

    17. قرأتها قبل عامينو هذا ما كتبته حينهامجموعة قصص قصيرة لـ بورخيس0ليست قراءته سهلة فهذا الإنسان موسوعي جدا و كأنه مطلع على كافة الثقافات و الأديان و الأساطير في الأرض كثرة الأسماء و التداعيات جعلتني أتوه و حُقَّ لي أن أتوه و هو أبو المتاهات و التوهان فقصصه تدور بمعظمها حول المت [...]

    18. El Aleph es una colección de cuentos (de ficción, la mayor parte) recopilada, si no me falla, por el mismo Borges, donde se exploran diversos temas que pasan por la inmortalidad y su opuesto, la divinidad, el significado de dios y todo esto lo conjunta con la metafísica, teología, filosofía y estoy seguro que hasta algo de metaliteratura hay por allí.Y hay varios cuentos en la colección que me dejaron muy buena impresión, El Inmortal paso a ser uno que recomendaría sin dudas, El Aleph e [...]

    19. Ci ho provato e riprovato. Ogni volta mi impegnavo a leggerne un pezzetto in più, ma ogni volta mi ritrovavo con un testo cervellotico, artificioso e saccente, che faticavo ad afferrare; anzi, mi infastidiva. E ogni volta mi sentivo come quel rudimentale troglodita del primo racconto, tuttavia priva di immortalità. L’ho ripreso infine da poco, quando ho scoperto su GR un gruppo di lettura che aveva scelto proprio "L’Aleph” per il mese di dicembre. Sono rimasta dietro le quinte in attesa, [...]

    20. “Our twentieth century had inverted the story of Mohammed and the mountain; nowadays, the mountain came to the modern Mohammed.”Isn’t it about the modern mass media?“‘When I opened my eyes, I saw the Aleph.’ ‘The Aleph?’ ‘Yes, the only place on earth where all places are – seen from every angle, each standing clear, without any confusion or blending.’”As The Aleph is a locus of the entire world so the stories by Jorge Luis Borges are the epitome of the entire intellectual [...]

    21. Mükemmel bir bilgi birikimi ve harika kurgulanmış öyküler eğer siz de bu bilgilere sahipseniz. Yüzeysel olarak okunarak da zevk alınacak bir kitap ama ben ayrıntılarda boğuldum, bilmediğim pek çok efsane, kültür, olay Daha iyi bir dönem de tekrar okumayı kesinlikle isterim.

    22. A los 19 años, más o menos, abrí con inocencia, con rabia, fresco y joven, mi primer libro de Borges. Pero a los pocos cuentos -o a las pocas páginas, mentiría de cualquier forma porque no lo recuerdo- lo dejé, o mejor, el libro me expulsó. Enojado con el Mejor Escritor Argentino de Todos los Tiempos, o conmigo mismo pienso ahora, le contaba a mi analista de entonces -iba a la piscólogica ja- que Borges era un pedante de mierda, un intelectual frío, un esteta vacuo. Lo odiaba.Después d [...]

    23. کتاب مجموعه ای از 17 داستان کوتاه هست.کتاب خوبی بود و داستان های زیبایی داشت اما بزرگترین مشکل این اثر، حداقل برای من، این بود که کتاب پر بود از اسامی آدم ها ،اسطوره ها و سرزمین های ناشناخته ای که من به سختی اسم بعضی از آنها را شنیده بودم، و چون دائما" باید به پی نوشت ها مراجعه می [...]

    24. Want a great description of what it's like to look at the World Wide Web through a browser for the first time? Read the long beautiful paragraph in which Borges describes his first look into the Aleph. I keep coming back to these stories and those in Labyrinths. Borges captures so much, so quickly.

    25. Me inicié con esta lectura con poquísimas expectativas, y he acabado alargando la lectura para no acarbarla tan pronto. La realidad es que Borges no es para todos los públicos. Me costó mucho meterme en su mundo y adaptarme a su pluma. Ahora bien, una vez lo hice, fue una absoluta maravilla. Me gustaron todos los relatos. Algunos más que otros, pero todos tiene ese algo que se te queda dentro al acabarlo. Genio.

    26. I found this book on a shelf at a library two days ago. The name of the author sounded familiar, but I did not know from where. I picked it up and opened it on a random page, which happened to be the first page of the short story "The House of Asterión". It was one of the most stunning things I had ever read. Needless to say, I brought The Aleph home with me that day. Since then I've been reading. It would be a lie to say I understood everything, that I caught every reference. Maybe that even a [...]

    27. All'interno di questa raccolta ogni storia oltre a racchiudere un universo a sè stante, riesce a contenere almeno una parte della grande sapienza di Borges.L'Aleph è un insieme di racconti fantastici, che dimostrano la grande capacità dell'autore di fondere la finzione e la realtà, lasciando il lettore in un apparente stato di sbalordimento.Sono storie brevi estremamente colte, ricche di riferimenti a testi e autori tutt'altro che noti. Sono storie religiose, orientali, mitologiche, esoteric [...]

    28. Eternidad. Esto es lo que fue. El libro es tan denso, sus lecturas tan pesadas que es difícil mantener el ritmo, es difícil, si no un suplicio, leer dos cuentos al mismo tiempo. Las historias son tan cortas y el libro tan pequeño, que es sorprendente la cantidad de tiempo que me tomó terminarlo. El libro es bueno. Los temas son poderosos, espirituales, más allá de lo evidente. Son lecturas bien pensadas y escritas limpiamente. Son la clase de historias que alguien muy espiritual guardaría [...]
