Amazng how Gabriel Garcia did it once again!!!!
Diana Ramirez
Despite my limited command of Spanish, I found the stories quite readable, lucid, written in a simple, spare style, with great economy of language.
Louis N. Gruber
This collection of short stories is a perfect introduction to the work of the master writer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Un gran libro de cuentos, lleno de sorpresas. Lo maravilloso es darse cuenta de cómo lo más simple y absurdo puede convertirse en algo mágico o trascendental, como si descubriéramos el envés de la realidad a través de la mirada de García Márquez.

García Márquez nos sumerge en un mundo ya pocas veces explorado': el espíritu humano, con historias de la vida diaria y frases envolventes nos cuenta, nos narra y de la mano nos lleva a conocer lugares y personajes típicos de nuestro mundo, pero con un toque tan mágico y tan complaciente, como solo el sabe regalar.

Format: Paperback
Nobel prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez continues spinning his own brand of magical realism into captivating tales with his Doce cuentos peregrinos. The stories border on reality and the unconcious, giving them a "sonambulo" feel. They are also very cinemographic and five have been made into movies and a TV series. Anyone who has ever seen "Milagro en Roma" must read "La santa"--the story on which the movie is based. This collection is a must-have!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Louis N. Gruber VINE VOICE on November 21, 2006
Format: Paperback
A man carries the perfectly preserved body of his daughter around in a carrying case. A woman whose car breaks down by the side of the road wants to use the telephone, but finds herself committed to a mental institution. A young woman, newly married, pricks her finger on a rose, and begins bleeding to death. A young couple spend the night in a hotel where a horrific murder took place long before. Twelve remarkable stories that begin in a low key, almost believable manner and quickly go off into another dimension. A magical dimension. The endings are unexpected, haunting, and often tragic.

I won't tell you how any of these stories turn out, you'll have to read them. There are twelve, of varying length, and every one of them is brilliant. You will not only enjoy these stories but they will stay with you. Despite my limited command of Spanish, I found the stories quite readable, lucid, written in a simple, spare style, with great economy of language. What a gift!

Marquez is a master story-teller. I recommend this book very highly. Reviewed by Louis N. Gruber.

Format: Hardcover
Marquez has crafted an exquisite sequence of short stories about Latin Americans alienated it Europe. The dream like sequences create an evocative picture of their inevitable alienation. They reach out and touch the reader, who inevitable finds parallels with his own life, whatever his circumstances

Superb introduction to Marquez. I would fully recommend these to anyone who does not know this amazing, imaginative author, who sadly has just died. However, his short stories and novels (eg El Coronel no tiene quien le escriba o 100 anos de Soledad are S American classics of the first degree.
Enjoy!
(Ps short stories very good for keen A level learners of Spanish or post)

This was a book I read as a teenager in highschool and loved it especially the stories named "el rastro de tu sangre en la nieve" and "solo queria hablar por telefono" many of the endings of these stories are very unexpected, the author adds a different twist and that is what I like the most.
