The mix to have good critics and to be a good novel, I understand Alatriste stories, more than 5,6 now, you only need one to read. He made La Reina del Sur a very special one, far from his famous themes, a mexican who discovers Europe and become one of the biggest drug dealer of mediterranean area. That's book look like a documentary and I got involved since the first pages.Koeman4 said:I just read a book of Reverte and I get the feeling that once you read one of his books, you read them all. He is a kind of machine that knows the formula to make books, like most of the best sellers, as the one who did "The Da Vinci Code" or "Los Pilares de la Tierra" (I don't know the name in English).
Read As and you'll have new complots everyday pKoeman4 said:Personally, I'm a bit sick of these stories of big complots around the Vatican or stories about lost treassures of the Middle Age or stories about the secret life of Jesus or Maria. I read some of those, Reverte, Matilde Asensi, The Da Vince Code... but I had enough. Period. I run away from this kind of literature now. It became a kind of silly fashion and sometimes I think all the editors just want something like this. I'm not against it, but it bores me already. With 3 or 4 of these, I got an overdose, to be honest.
Like Robban said, that's more interesting to be in english version this thread, and we could talk about every kind of book from everywhere
