The Invention of Morel by Bioy Casares

The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares is one of Jorge Luis Borges’, Octavio Paz’s, and Roberto Bolano’s favorite books. Borges’ praised it a masterpiece of plotting and compared it to Kafka’s The Trial. Octavio Paz called it perfect.

What attracted me was the utter strangeness of the story. I had no idea what was going on for some time and was in suspense until the end. I loved the story, though it got a little repetitive, even for short novel. I did appreciate the inventiveness and creativity. It’s a cult classic ahead of its time.
