Black holes: To be or not be, that is the question

I will review some problems of the black hole paradigm and explore other
possibilities for the final state of stellar collapse other than an evaporating
black hole. In particular I will use the so-called transplanckian problem as a
guide in this search for a compelling scenario for the evaporation of
ultracompact objects.
