    Aesthetic experience is extraordinary in the sense that it is always ours alone, uniquely ours And some aesthetic experiences hit us right between the eyes with a knockout punch these are encounters we will never forget One such encounter was my reading this collection of stories by Jorge Luis Borges some thirty years ago T

    This is one of Borges last books, and many of the pieces here are less than his best The Congress, however, is a tale of the microcosm as powerful and effective as The Aleph, and The Book of Sand is also one of Borge s finest stories The Sect of Thirty is an excellent short piece, and the theological implications of this account o

    There s something really sensory and textured about JLB s fiction writing Reading his work always invokes the distinct smell of dusty leather bound books, the creaking sounds of flawed wood floors lightly tread upon by anonymous figures in the corridors of giant, empty houses, the odors of burnt coffee and blackened toast, a wind gust th

    It s not the reading that matters, but the rereading So true of all JLB s worksI have the Collected Fictions, but am splitting my review of that into its components, listed in publication order Collected Fictions all reviews The Book of Sand is the eighth, published in 1975 After the generally quite straightforward stories of Brodie s Report, t

    While I did enjoy a couple of these stories, for the most part I was left feeling quite bored by this collection I don t know if it s because I was reading in French which isn t my first language or because the book is a translation and the magic got lost in translation, either one is entirely possible I am still glad I read it though, it s something I never would have re

    Once upon a time once upon a long time when I was in high school we read one of Borhes stories, I don t remember which one but I remember liking it a lot And ever since that day I got it into my head that I would like his other stuff don t ask me why, I just did albeit it took me years to get my hands on something of his and to actually see if that s true.Sadly, I didn t feel mu

    In this short story, you can find a Scotsman, a discussion on bibliophilism and on a not very famous but known to every reader feeling that some books take over your soul I had books like the book of sand in my life Some I had to stop for a period They took over too much of my imagination and of my life too if I m honest I loved those books and felt sad when I finished it This story is
