I was never gripped by it but was curious to see how the plot would evolve. I found it overall disappointing. The characters were superficial and stereotypical, the rich were beautiful, the poor either “greasy” or grotesque. The descriptions of them, particularly of the more interesting trio the boxer, the fake lawyer and the singer were repetitive, page and page over.

So were the descriptions Piep found this book in a resort in the Caribbean, it took me two holidays to actually finish reading it. So were the descriptions of the sunlight on the church, on the river, and everywhere else, even though we arturp talking about torrid Seville, descriptions of the light must amass a good 10 pages.
I liked the bit on astronomy, and the introspective nature of the Father of the Parish, but even that was kept short to the point you could not really get through to the main character artiro the plot.
The vision of the aristocracy seems a rather common-place one of composure and subtle superiority, the clever elderly lady who pil computers hardly believable. And even after a fight in the dark where everybody fights and gets punched the beautiful young duchess is the only one who was kept immaculate, lol.
That you have to read the very last sentence to get to know who the killer was may seem stylish, but hey hardly original, or is it?
This seems like a kindo Da Vinci Code rip off. Jan 02, Benito rated it did not like it. I tried for the first pages to get into it I ended up scanning through the second half just to get a gist of how it ended. Overall, it was a disappointment. May 10, Alberto Delgado rated it did not like it. I read about sixty pages, but I just couldn’t get into it. I didn’t particularly care about any of the characters and the plot just didn’t pique my curiosity. Truthfully, I gave up on it half-way.
Also given up the author for the most part. Feb 07, Night rated it did not like it. Don’t waste your time even if you really like Perez-Reverte’s books. I decide to read this after good experiences in the past specially with “El Club Dumas” and “La Tabla de Flandes” but find it really disappointing. Ok, not really terrible but very ver predictable.
When you think it cant go worse, then artturo comes the ending, omg!!! As everybody knows when you are an 80 years old aristocrat lady mos Don’t waste your time even if you really like Perez-Reverte’s books.
As everybody knows when you are an 80 years old aristocrat lady mostly interested in bullfighting and other “saraos” you have a lot of free time. With it and some cokes you can become a notable hacker able to enter the Pope and other Vatican computers in just a couple of years leaving no trace.
I wish I could rate it 0.
The characters are a little too stereotypical, and the James Bond-style priest is a little unbelievable for anyone who’s watched Father Ted Osennya rated it did not like it Apr 13, Daniel Ibm rated it did not like it Feb 27, Guillermo rated it did not like it Jul 03, Jason Bunnell rated it did not like it Jul 06, Storyteller rated it did not like it Jun 01, Matt Turner rated it did not like it Jun 19, Ashley rated it did not like it Jan 31, Arati rated it did not like it Feb 12, Jose Manuel rated it did not like it Dec 21, Puccino rated it did not like it Feb 05, Jane rated it did not like it Apr 27, Cherrera rated it did not like it Sep 04, Irina Somerdin rated it did not like it Sep 19, Carly rated it did not like it Jan 31, Peter Milliron rated it did not like it Mar 17, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
