Less action, more emotions, still a great story.,
This review is from: El Prisionero del Cielo (Hardcover)
The third of the four-books saga by a master of story telling, the English version will come out in spring 2012 as "The Prisoner of Heaven". Notwithstanding the many flashbacks, an altogether easier story to follow. It provides many explanations and connections about facts and people we have met in the two previous books. One warning: to be able to enjoy "The Prisoner of Heaven", you will have to go back to "The Angel's Game" - a very complex, dark and oppressive book - to retrace some of the characters and happenings. The city of Barcelona takes a much more secondary role, as we learn everything about Fermin Romero de Torres' background and troubled life through his emotional ups and downs. Figuring a more mature and assured Daniel Sempere, some new characters join the saga, leaving the reader with the impression that they will be the key for the final wrap up. Can't wait for the fourth and last book to provide the solution to the still many questions we passionate readers are left with.
