5.0 out of 5 stars Reine Spannung! 4 Feb 2006
By Professor Joseph L. McCauley - Published on
This book, although it starts pretty slowly with a symbollic rather than believeable setting (a huge secret library in a land where there are no secrets), is written as a mystery with very good character development. One comes to know the main characters pretty well. The setting is Franco Spain, and the main effect conveyed repeatedly is the absolute horror of living in a fascist regime where the police can beat or kill you at will and then face no ill consequences. The police inspector, appropriately, is a psychopath.

Aside from quite a few sentences whose length would satisfy a Hegelian philosopher, the German translation is a apparently a very good one.
4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable mystery 8 Nov 2009
By Mike P. - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a well written mystery that takes place in Spain in the years following the country's civil war. A young man named Daniel becomes obsessed with a local author who disappeared during the height of the conflict. As Daniel unveils more facts about the author he comes to find that their lives parallel one another in many ways.

I found the German translation to be somewhat challenging at times. The sentences can be quite long. Not a good book for beginning German students.
