just brilliantReviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 August 2018
Super interesting conceptual work!Reviewed in the United States on 3 February 2019
Inspiring exploration re. the nature of reality, layers of consciousness, and an examination of the importance of words/language, and, of course, story. Written with remarkable humor and wit, would def recommend. A few of the later passages between p.g. 38-40 and 64-69 get pretty crazy. Great if you're in a philosophical mood.
A strong relation between critics and literature.Reviewed in the United States on 23 December 2014
The author talks about a strange association around the cospiracy. That is related to a connection between dream and reallity. Aira speaks with competence about those particularities of the language whom are so autoreferences. This correlation of events has a vision about it related to a strong type of culture. All that is offered to the lector with a particular attention to his taste.
