Arturo Pérez-Reverte consigue escribir una novela a la altura de El Club Dumas. Una historia frenética muy recomendable para los amantes del género.

Un libro excelente - An excellent mystery 24 Mar 2000
By Barbara Diaz A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Este comentario es sobre la edición en español de Ed. Alfaguara. No he leído la versión en inglés. Este es uno de los mejores libros que he leído (ya sea de misterio o de otro tipo) por lo complicado de la trama, su excelente narración y el muy inesperado final. Todo comienza con una restauradora de arte que recibe un cuadro, el cual muestra a una pareja jugando al ajedrez, que será vendido en una subasta; y al limpiarlo, descubre una inscripción bajo una capa mas reciente de pintura. A continuación asesinan a su ex-novio y la única pista que se encuentra en la escena del crimen es una movida de ajedrez que continúa la partida del cuadro. La historia y la fantasía se mezclan maravillosamente en este libro, creando un ambiente de incertidumbre tan creible, que cuesta trabajo dejar de leer.
This review is for the book in spanish. I haven't read the english version. This is one of the best books I have read (mystery or other), because of it's plot twists, excellent writting (I hope that is the right word) and truly unexpected end. It all begins when a young restorer receives a painting portraying a couple playing a game of chess. She cleans the painting and finds a hidden message under a layer of paint. Next thing she knows, her ex-boyfriend is dead and the only clue left in the murder scene is a "chess move" that continues the game in her painting. History and fantasy blends in this book creating a sense of unease so strong that I couldn't keep from reading.

El Alejandro Dumas del Siglo XXI 10 July 2002
By Roberto Antonacci - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Considero a Arturo Perez-Reverte como el Alejandro Dumas del siglo XXI. Sus novelas, para mi gusto, van más allá de lo espectacular y cautivante. Desde la primera oración te quedas prisionero de este narrador maestro. Cuando empiezo a leer, pocas cosas hay en el mundo capaces de hacerme soltar el libro. Leí la Tabla de Flandes de principio a fin, sin parar. Literalmente. Las historias de este genio español son tales que es como comer un manjar tan exquisito que quisieras que nunca acabe. No voy a contar aquí de qué se trata el libro. Baste decir que es una lectura maravillosa, sorpresiva y que lleva el arte de la narración a un nivel de éxtasis y suspenso para el lector que sólo puedes encontrar en autores sobrehumanos como Dumas, Julio Verne, Victor Hugo y Mark Twain. Aparte de La Tabla de Flandes, recomiendo intensamente la lectura de La Carta Esférica, La Piel del Tambor, El Club Dumas, El Maestro de Esgrima y la "atípica" (dentro del universo Perez-Revertiano) trilogía del Capitán Alatriste. Recomiendo este libro (y todas las novelas del autor) sin absolutamente ninguna reserva.

Cinematografico 16 July 2000
By Tatiana Ramos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Es frecuente al leer, visualizar el libro, como si lo estuvieran proyectando mentalmente. Creo que esa fue la intención del autor. La narración es tan perfecta, las descripciones de los personajes, tan real y detallada, la trama es tan interesante y apasionada...que inevitablemente se siente todo el libro como si estuviese en un escenario. Excelente historia que combina el humor negro con crímenes, arte y el ingenio del ajedrez como única posibilidad para descubrir al asesino. Con una pintura flamenca y su ingenua restauradora comienza la acción que desencadenará un inesperado final.

Fascinating but obtuse mystery 10 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ever examine an art masterpiece and wonder just what the experts see that you do not? In The Flanders Panel every shadow of a painting has life or death meaning for the effete intellectuals studying it.

No bombs go off, no hi-tech wizardry here. The novel is a dark study in duplicity. If you want action I suggest Ken Follett. If you enjoy a mental challenge and deep mystery slowly revealed, this is for you.

One note:the mystery IS solvable. Like the best of Conan Doyle, the conclusion is a breathtaking "Aha"

a great mystery mixed with antique collecting and chess 31 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book after "The Club Dumas," and though I found that book to be more well-written, "The Flanders Panel" contained a great plot with plenty of detail about painting and chess. For me, the extensive information about the world of art and the game(?)of chess really piqued my curiosity and created an intimate and exclusive atmosphere for the novel to which the reader was given admittance. The tone is the greatest strength of the book. The world it creates is one which most readers will not have intense experience, but the author gives the readers the tools to enter that world, and shut the door behind them. The characterization grew a bit tiresome, as verbose descriptions of the supporting cast were repeated ad nauseum. Excepting that, "The Flanders Panel" was interesting and a good read for people who like mysteries with more suspense and intellect than mile-a-minute action and a pre-determined and obvious villain
