Los Mejores Amigos/Best Friends (Spanish Edition)
Dec 15, Tuck rated it really liked it Shelves: spain. Feb 27, Alex Labant rated it liked it. A handful of these stories rocked my psyche, and some almost compelled me to contact the editors and ask who paid how much to be published. Overall, an interesting collection; if I were more inspired, I would list my favorite stories on here, but instead they're written down on a post-it note stuck to the inside cover. Jul 22, Patrick rated it it was ok. I don't know if it's just that the short story isn't really my thing, but very few of these stories grabbed me at all.
AS one might expect from a selection of stories by different writers, there is an uneven literary output. What I enjoyed was the unexpected pleasure of finding the noir going strong in Spanish writers, and the fantastical as well. Dec 05, Chris rated it really liked it.
A good collection of new young Spanish language authors. Nov 23, Wendy rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , anthologies , latin-america. Too few women, too many Argentines, but honestly, I can't complain too much. And I've only read two of the stories so far.

Mar 13, Katie Stark rated it really liked it. Some better than others, interesting read A really good mix of styles and stories, but only a couple have really stuck in my mind since I finished it. May 28, Anda rated it it was ok Shelves: Apr 20, Haldane Harris rated it liked it. Dec 30, Laura rated it it was amazing. Great collection.

Mar 11, Queenie rated it liked it. I liked the one about the porn star with the unicorn horn on her forehead. Aug 10, Stuart Cooke rated it it was amazing. Astonishingly consistent; page after page of original, gripping story-telling.
