Lists with This Book. Sep 29, Sleeping with Ghosts rated it liked it Shelves: I read this for a capstone class in college, and was surprised I enjoyed it. In fact, I ended up writing my final paper for the class about the author.
It’s about as dark as it sounds, but there’s a certain draw to it I found I couldn’t tear myself away. Much like Thomas Hardy, Quiroga had a very depressing life. Most of his family and friends died before him, several from bizarre, freak accidents. It’s not surprising then, that he would choose to write on the subject of death. This is a collect I read this for a capstone class in college, and was surprised I enjoyed it. This is a collection of short stories all focused around death, and most of the characters die unexpectedly, in very freakish ways.
I think Quiroga was trying to find some connection to those he’d lost by writing about those types of accidents. While dark it’s definitely enlightening, degollaca I think worth the read. You might want to have something happy to read on degollaca side, though. While some of the stories were super creepy and thought-provoking, ultimately I didn’t find them unique enough to stand up against other masters in the genre.
For example, if you want creepy short stories, just read Poe. Or if you want stories that engage in interesting metaphysical ideas, read Borges. In the end these just felt like standard short stories. Nothing phenomenal, but not bad either.

But now I’m utterly fascinated with defollada. Clearly obsessed with death, Quiroga anchors every story in this collection in some process of it. Whether characters are dead, dying, or have it soon coming, Quiroga explores it with fervency. To me, these got under my s Really fascinated by this author — Horacio Quiroga. To me, these got under my skin and lingered there. They were genuinely creepy and felt current as anything else out there. Others stories however, failed to fully engage me.
Degollda to love, but not consistent enough to be truly phenomenal. Nov 21, R. A disciple of Poe and Kipling and forerunner to Marquez and Borges, Quiroga was entirely unknown to me before he turned up as an answer in a Halloween horror fiction quiz in the Phila.
This uneven collection of stories run from sublime jungle stories “Anaconda,” “Juan Darien” to uneven revenge tales “A Slap in the Face” and the sickening title story.
The closing story, “The Son,” though one of the briefest in the book packs a twist ending worthy of the best of Ambrose Bierce’s shoc A disciple of Poe and Kipling and forerunner to Marquez and Borges, Quiroga was entirely unknown to me before he turned up as an answer in a Halloween horror fiction quiz in the Phila. The closing story, “The Son,” though one of the briefest in the book packs a twist ending worthy of the best of Ambrose Bierce’s shockers.
The Feathered Pillow is great bedtime story for those who believe there life could be sucked out by a parasite. The Decapitated Chicken is more than just a murdered chicken. Dgollada Mother’s love I guess.
Juan Darien a story of a tiger boy. Horacio Quiroga bases his stories on life experience with a given twist of imagination.
Very deep with explained surroundings.

Above the top three favorites for me but all worth a read. Originally published from Apr 05, Jo rated it liked it. Kind of obscene and weird. Jan 11, Miguel Barrera rated it liked it. May 14, Cristina Machado rated it liked it. Great short stories but as you can tell from the title, it’s pretty dark. If you’re looking for something different and intriguing like Edgar Allen Poe, check this book out.
