review 1: Después de haber leído del mismo autor La Catedral del Mar, leí este con un poco de prevención porque aquel me pareció estupendo, sin embargo este no defrauda. Ambientado en un sitio que nada tiene que ver con su anterior novela el autor desarrolla una historia en el mundo morisc...

review 1: I've been known to many people as someone who loves the Gypsy culture. Well most of it anyway. I go to the Ren Faire every year dressed to the nines in my Gypsy Fortune Teller dress and I have a ball. I loved this book because it gave me insight into the struggles that these peop...

review 1: Ildefonso Falcones is the Ken Follett of Spain, i.e. he produces hefty 600 - 900 page historical page turners which you can't put down. The disenfranchisement of the Spanish Muslims is a little known part of history and is worth knowing about as we see what hate and ignorance ca...

review 1: Dit is zeker een goed boek, puur vakmanschap zelfs, zoals ik van de auteur gewend ben. Maar toch leg ik hem aan de kant. Het is zo triest, zo hard, zo wreed, ik kon er gewoon niet meer tegen.Nu in onzekere tijden van IS en andere onverdraagzaamheid (helaas vaak nog steeds van rel...

review 1: I was so blown away by "Cathedral of the sea" that i couldn't wait to read another book by the same author. That too a historical novel. Sadly, the book didn't live up to my expectations. the plot gets very messy halfway through the book. There are too many things going on that a...
