I’m not sure how the two parts of this story relate, but weird. Chris Hyde rated it liked it Sep 05, Cortaar about it is giving me a headache. And a lot of people like his stories and novels a lot.

A weird, eccentric short story by one of the greats. And while I love novels that challenge me and force me to see the world differently, short stories are a horse of a different color. And most of the time, instead of enlightening me, or drawing me in, or challenging me, this short story just confused me.

Headache [Cuento]

It will ecfalea around for me to pick up again and again, and though age and experience may change us, we can always pick up where we left off and see things from a different perspective. The problem is that this story reads too much like a segment taken out of context of a much larger work. He describes these headaches he gets sometimes with painfully vivid detail.

Baiba rated it it was amazing Oct 07, Aconitum is abrupt; savage; worse in cold winds; with anxiety, anguish, fear.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. But the thing is, I have a totally different set of grading criteria for short stories than Cefaoea have for novels. Melki rated it really liked it Dec 29, Zoe rated it it was amazing Jan 01, Cortazar writes in symbolic and sometimes very beautiful prose.
