    Borges explains at the beginning that the book is not intended to be read through but opened at random and skimmed Well I read it through and I don't regret it But that's because I'm interested by very unusual things Borges has here compiled from what is essentially a set of utterly trivial facts something with meaning His selection is bizarre pretty and humorous and he describes each beast with great variation

Who has vastly enriched the textures and vocabulary of our fantasies and speculation Only Borges could dream the world with such intellectual rigour' Ian McEw. I really don t know how JLB makes such exciting topic sound so boring Let s take Scylla as an example She is one of the weirdest monsters a girl with the heads of six barking dogs coming from her waist The story behind her transformation from Ovid s Metamorphoses is eually twisted a guy named Glaucus falls in love with Scylla lovely girl at this point she scorns him Desperate he seeks help from Circe the sorceress He is probably hoping for some love potion to change Scylla s mind To his surprise Circe falls for him and puts down Scylla And even though Glaucus says no Circe goes ahead and poisons the water Scylla likes to bathe in She only sank her body halfway when the dog heads grew out of her loins Wild Ovid s story stimulates emotions and marvels us JLB makes this story as well as 100 others unbearably boring just piles of exotic knowledge If you are interested in these fantastic creatures read Homer Ovid and various world mythologies You ll enjoy the reading much
