HASH(0x8a8106d8) out of 5 stars Intelligent and exciting 9 Aug. 2013
By Carolyn Kost - Published on
Format: Paperback
Sánchez prefaces this compelling novel with the assertion that some of the events described are real, which, combined with Sánchez's fine writing, lends this book a delicious plausibility.

Antiquarian Artur Aiguader's confidential connections enable him to corner the market on superb acquisitions in Barcelona, but now is the time of reckoning. Artur is murdered, but shortly beforehand he had sent a letter to his adopted son, the acclaimed writer Enrique Alonso, directing him to a certain book in the event of his death.

Determined to find both the murderer and the secret of the book for which Artur gave his life, Enrique soon finds himself caught up in a race to solve a perilous historical mystery before other forces do.

This latest addition to the Da Vinci Code readalikes is in many ways superior to it. While the ambit here is literary rather than artistic, the theology is far less controversial (kabbalistic rather than Gnostic), and the hint of magic is a delight.

Sánchez respects the reader's intelligence, reveals the necessary bits and plot twists at precisely the right intervals, and maintains perfect pace with multidimensional characters, which he wisely limits in number. Highly recommended for general interest bookstores and public libraries.

HASH(0x8a81072c) out of 5 stars El Anticuario 13 Jun. 2012
By Macarena RP - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Un libro de misterio, que me mantuvo constantemente pendiente por saber que pasaba. Un buen manejo del tema histórico de Barcelona, que nos deja con ese bichito por saber mas.
La trama relata la investigación de un asesinato de un (obvio) anticuario, donde corre por dos pistas una la investigación de la policía y por otra la investigación personal. En esta última es donde esta lo mas interesante, con una buena base histórica que nos remonta a al época de la construcción de la Catedral de Barcelona.
Muy entretenido y recomendable.

still a good way to spend an afternoon.
HASH(0x8bb5f588) out of 5 stars Más bien 1. 5 estrellas, muy cerca de ... 22 May 2015
By Lector - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Más bien 1.5 estrellas, muy cerca de “qué pérdida tan evidente de mi precioso tiempo”.
Éste es un thriller donde un manuscrito medieval que contiene pistas sobre algo que todos codician pone en movimiento la trama: los asesinatos, el consabido amor, la ciudad que adquiere protagonismo de personaje secundario aunque preponderante, el misterio, los lugares comunes, los diálogos insulsos... Ni mejor ni peor que las sepetecientas otras novelas similares en el mercado hoy día. Y tan mediocre como ellas.
También está colmada de clichés. Algunos ejemplos representativos:
“Y hoy retornaba con un vacío en el corazón...”
“... cuatro o cinco páginas, pero estaban en blanco, como su propio corazón...”
“Bety había recobrado su entereza habitual y había revestido su corazón de una dura capa de insensibilidad...”
“Cuando salieron, al cerrar la puerta, una congoja indescriptible estremeció el alma de Enrique”

Es bueno, pero no me quita el sueño. Si se puede comprar, pero no formar parte de ninguna colección respetable.
