    2. The Invention of Morel is a romantic classic in which passion triumphs over convention, a surrealist classic in which imagination triumphs over reality, a science fiction classic in which technology triumphs over time, and a mystery story whose fantastic resolution always plays fair with the reader Is corporeality necessary for human personality Is community possible even in isolation Can love survive death and perhaps what is worse complete indifference Bioy Casares novel addresses all of these [...]

    3. The Invention of Morel was adjudged a perfect work by Jorge Luis Borges, the author s mentor friend frequent collaborator Anybody familiar with the essays and short fiction of Borges can appreciate what it means for one of the great masters of world literature to make such a pronouncement Perhaps Borges appraisal reflects, in part, how Adolfo Bioy Casares shares much of his own aesthetic and literary sensibilities since, after all, they collaborated on twelve books.More specifically, here are so [...]

    4. I do not believe that a dream should necessarily be taken for reality, or reality for madness How often we feel like an island, alone in a world and beleaguered by the crashing waves of change, responsibility and heartache eroding our soil Adolfo Bioy Casares presents us a chilling and empathetic tale of love and loneliness, molding the diary of a man stranded on an island literary trope into a fantastical and exciting exploration into the human heart While the sci fi elements are engaging and i [...]

    5. Insane Insane Again Insane Then I resumed my efforts, moving to other parts of the wall Chips fell, and, when large pieces of the wall began to come down, I kept on pounding, bleary eyed, with an urgency that was far greater than the size of the iron bar, until the resistance of the wall which seemed unaffected by the force of my repeated pounding pushed me to the floor, frantic and exhausted First I saw, then I touched, the pieces of masonry they were smooth on one side, harsh, earthy on the ot [...]

    6. Appearances are essential We live for our images We feed them constantly Our images is what will be remembered The hero of this novel dies for his image s sake As for me, in this instance, my image is what I write To be exact, my image is what you read.Our avatars will outlive us Virtual reality is the ultimate reality.

    7. When I first started this novella, I was highly bemused by everything The nameless narrator from Venezuela, who is living on an island he believes is called Villings and who decides to write a diary of what is happening there He is unsure how long he has to live He is a fugitive on the run from justice after being sentenced to life imprisonment We are never to find out what this crime is, and then an Italian rug merchant in Calcutta tells him about an island There is only one place for a fugitiv [...]

    8. A surrealistic story with perfect execution I am captivated by the setting and protagonist s inner conflicts Me A shallow reader who enjoy cheap thrilling of pulp fictions enjoyed a Latin American literature work That s how good Casares s writing skill is Mystery has big part on the story, so even it is a well known literature, I don t want to say much about the plot But I can say the atmosphere alone is a perfect example of surrealism of early 20th century I can t help myself imagining the stor [...]

    9. The incomprehensibility of an idea is what makes man delve deeper into it The challenging the idea the fascination it holds For as long as mankind can remember, the idea of death and immortality has intrigued minds, making man wish to conquer death and to become immortal Philosophy, science and religion maintain views which suggest some interesting thoughts for contemplation But since death still remains unconquerable, man somehow tries to deceive it by leaving behind works of importance which [...]

    10. Coming Clean About LOSTSeveral years ago I was induced by my grandchildren to watch seven seasons worth of the television series LOST during summer holidays Filmed in Hawaii from 2004 to 2010, the series recounted the increasingly strange existence of the survivors of a trans Pacific flight on an apparently uncharted, and possibly uncharitable, island Often tedious, always unexpected, the tale, I decided, was either an invention beyond my abilities to appreciate, or it was utter nonsense, with n [...]

    11. Perhaps we always want the person we love to have the existence of a ghost The Invention of Morel is a deceptively slender novella, one which examines weighty psychological and philosophical concerns with great tenderness, delicacy and melancholy grace It covers much intriguing ground topics under discussion include solitude, love, the desire for immortality, and the ways in which human beings relate and grow attached to one another While technically satisfying the requirements of inventive scie [...]

    12. am i jackass a moron this is a perfectly good book and a guy spending months on a sun dappled island amongst three dimensional phantoms re enacting a single weekend is sublime but this the most complete and total perception not only of the unreality of the world but of our own unreality not only do we traverse a realm of shadows, we ourselves are shadows that s octavio paz and paz is a badasss a serious badass and borges maybe the biggest badass that has ever lived called this novella perfect bu [...]

    13. Floating Reviews and the Television Show LostI just went through my update feed looking to see what my friends have been doing I see reviews and things I should pay some attention to, but I m not quite that self reflexive yet that I will write reviews only about what I m doing at the moment on Instead I would like to make an observation of how my update feed mirrors this book For the past few days just about every morning and early evening that I check my update feed, or my homepage, or whatever [...]

    14. What a great little book Casares comes as close here as a writer possibly could to successfully mixing literary fiction with elements of science fiction I feel like there is very little that I can say about the plot without spoiling it Over the first thirty pages I was convinced that this was merely a ghost story specifically the ghost story that inspired Shyamalan s whole I see dead people thing Casares totally surprised me at that point by taking the story in a direction that I had not consid [...]

    15. 4.5 5In order for this novel to work the groundwork had to be situated early and deftly, the author s voice sculpted within the fictions flow At first the slowness, repetitiveness earned the book a 2 star rating and my reading ability a one lone lonely star Okay, maybe a two but the last in pieces and I had to glue it together Then I waited for it to dry Impatient waiting I decided it best to give the novella up There is a condition where the ribs become inflamed as does the lower back Breathing [...]

    16. I see Faustinebut she doesn t see me.I speak, halting, tortured wordsbut her gaze never shifts.I build her a garden, a hint of my lovebut she walks through it._____ _____ _____ _____ _____I hold the glass by the stem, hard against the table My wrist works, making the liquid swirl I breathe it in So often, I miss the notes I guess wrong I keep quiet at tastings.So here._____ _____ _____ _____ _____No, that won t do.Let me tell you of my wrong guesses and dead ends.I tasted the name Faustine, Faus [...]

    19. I wish I hadn t read the back of The Invention of Morel before I read the novel Once I read that Borges, Paz, etc loved this book I felt like I had to like it Too much pressure Fortunately, I think the The Invention of Morel is strong enough that I would have been a fan without any background knowledge The book is narrated by a fugitive marooned on an island to which the tides carried him after his escape A house, chapel, and museum occupy the otherwise deserted island Soon, however, people show [...]

    20. This is the kind of book one reads from cover to cover in one sitting or before bed, and then finishes on the bus in the morning This is true for a variety of reasons the length, the mystery evoked in the first twenty or so pages, and the pacing of the narration for the last half The narration is haunting, the island where the action the endless, repetitive action , the events transpire, is eerie, somewhat vague The Love the emotion or obsession or sentiment or consuming need I dont know which f [...]
