Esta antolog a para mi gusto ha sido muy irregular Por dos razones principales.Uno Desde mi gusto personal algunos relatos me han flipado, y otros me han resultado pesados Pero en s la mayor a me han dejado indiferentes Considero que es una lectura que ha merecido mucho la pena porque sencillamente algunas historias son incre bles y maravillosas y s que de otra forma no las habr a le do Pero por otro lado, tambi n hay algunas que, a pesar de su brevedad, se me han hecho pesadas y dif ciles de digerir As la mayor a me han resultado indiferentes de estas que las lees, piensas oh, pues ha estado bien pero una vez que terminas el libro, no las recuerdas Dos Al estar agrupadas por tem ticas se me terminaban haciendo repetitivas No por g nero, que eso me parece genial, sino por temas Sobre todo los relatos finales, cuyo tema era la guerra Al tener trasfondos similares, y carecer de rasgos definitorios, pues al ser un relato, se suele prescindir de ellos, me ha ayudado a esa sensaci n de estar leyendo sobre lo mismo todo el rato Desde mi punto de vista como lectora para mi esto ha sido un fallo, pues en vez de mantenerme en vilo por ver qu tipo de historia iba a encontrar, me ha ido sumiendo en la monoton a y no ayudaba a motivarme.No obstante, gracias a esta antolog a he descubierto a varias autoras que no conoc a y me ha motivado a investigar sobre ellas, lo cual siempre es un acierto. This review is based only on the following stories.The Girls from Avenger by Carrie Vaughn This one made me sad, mostly because a man s ego caused great harm I was glad that Em found out what happened, just wish the guy was punished.Dying with her Cheer Pants On by Seanan McGuire This author does horror in a way to make it seem real I like the idea that the girls came up with, it s just too bad that one of them had to be sacrificed.
