    Labyrinths

    It took me many years to appreciate Borges. I will fully acknowledge that that was solely based off of my own immaturity as a reader and not due to his writing. The stories contained in this collection are like none I have ever read before. These are the kinds of stories that stay with you long after you've read them. Like a good movie that constantly demands re-examination, Borges writing will taunt the reader to delve deeper into each story and find something new. But enough of the "literature buff" angle. Simply put, these are highly entertaining, mysterious and thought provoking stories. Some people may even choose to describe them as 'trippy': fair enough. Those versed with Julio Cortazar most likely have already experienced Borges, but if not, then what are you waiting for? As for the rest of the would be readers out there, "Labyrinths" is just as its name implies. Anyone can get lost in there and everyone will find something they were looking for, whether they knew they were looking for it or not.

    Mind-grabbing

    This book was my introduction to Borges. Every piece was intellectually stimulating. He succinctly and elegantly probes the mind and develops lasting images and deep feelings. Borges was a genius.
