    2. No s si es que sea demasiado occidental y mi desconocimiento casi absoluto de las filosof as orientales influy , pero ten a tiempo sin aburrirme tanto con un libro Herman Hesse tambi n tiene novelas profundamente metaf sicas, pero no son tan sopor feras como El dominico blanco Ya ni ganas tengo de leer El Golem, que es un eterno pendiente tras haber visto la pel cula muda y haberla disfrutado tanto.


    3. Me cost horrores los mismos que sufre el protagonista, por momentos terminar esta sopor fera historia Creo que ya no estoy para este tipo de literarura Me pas con Lovecraft y me sucedi nuevamente con Meyrink, de quien esperaba otra cosa.



    4. Me agrado esta obra de Meyrink para ser el primer trabajo que abordo de este escritor, es un texto facil y la lectura de dicha novela es fluida ademas de entretenida Sin duda tomare en cuenta otros titulos de G.Meyrink para leer.


    5. Translated by Mike MitchellFrom the Diary of an Invisible ManX or Y has written a novel What does this mean It is quite simple he has used his imagination to portray people who do not really exist, has invented experiences for them and woven it all together.
