Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sskous | 2/20/2014

    " This was my introduction to this author; I've read everything he's written, enjoying some more than others. this is a 5 Star not because it's profound or enlightening; it's not; but because it was just a pleasure to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chandra | 2/18/2014

    " If it were an option I'd give this book 3.5 stars. It was a smart, quick, pleasurable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flora | 1/6/2014

    " Great description of the various classes of priests and the inner workings of the Vatican. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 12/1/2013

    " The end is disappointing. He falls into the dark lady cliche trap. But the book is beautifully written, with a touch of Marquez swirling around in there amongst the rest of his wonderful writing. The mystery's concept and development are mostly wonderful. I just think he couldn't decide to what to do with the ending, and he made the wrong choice. But again, great book. Loved it. I will read it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurence | 11/13/2013

    " my first Perez Reverte... of a long series! One of my favorite, but it might have to do with the fact that I was just back from Sevilla where the action takes place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leonard | 11/9/2013

    " Best last line ever. This book is a fun read. The author has a style that flows. No matter how tired I was I wanted to keep turning the pages. I especially liked the description of the city as a living, breathing thing - something that chews up and spits out the less-capable characters. Though the story holds together well, my only complaint is that the identity of the hacker didn't seem realistic. But I still give the book 4.9 stars, rounded up to 5. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mainrun | 11/8/2013

    " I really like the way this guy - or the translator - wrote. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abbi | 10/25/2013

    " A fascinating book, though I didn't like it as well as I did The Flanders Panel. I found the end a bit unsatisfactory. The writing was gorgeous as usual, and I could almost smell the orange blossoms in Seville... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 9/26/2013

    " I very much enjoyed this book - it brought Seville alive so much that I stayed at the Hotel Dona Maria, same hotel as the protagonist, when I visited. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marina | 9/14/2013

    " Though I read it some long time ago, Istill feel the facinatin of Seville air that saturates this marvellous book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy | 8/5/2013

    " Another from Perez-Reverte. Interesting plot and characters. I was especially intrigued by the contrasting philosophies of the three very different priests. Who or which best reflected the meaning of priesthood in the Catholic tradition? I still ponder this today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 8/4/2013

    " Father Lorenzo Quart of an investigative (CIA-like) unit of the Vatican is sent to Seville to investigate circumstances around a 17th century church that developers want to destroy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 6/18/2013

    " A great mystery that will make you fall in love with the city of Seville. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kurt | 4/18/2013

    " Re-reading this one--- a great story and author for a rainy Friday. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eugene Ryder | 6/29/2012

    " A bit slow-moving. The characters are a little too stereotypical, and the James Bond-style priest is a little unbelievable for anyone who's watched Father Ted.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 4/12/2011

    " Truthfully, I gave up on it half-way. Also given up the author for the most part. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swetha | 2/18/2011

    " Spectacular read. Couldn't put it down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Phil | 3/30/2010

    " Eh, not great. I guess if you had strong interest in Spain's culture, history, architecture and in the structure of the catholic church, you might like this. I am not one of those people and was not crazy about this book. I finished it simply to find out who dunnit, not because I was enjoying it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sylvia | 2/9/2010

    " This book was read for our book club and I appreciate knowing about this author and feel it made for a good discussion. In retrospect, however, it was not a "fun" read despite a lot of clever writing and humor and the fact that it was somewhat of a mystery story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Goodwin | 5/22/2009

    " I'm rather a fool for Perez-Reverte - this is the first one I read, and I did enjoy the will-he/won't-he suspense, as the priest struggles to keep his vows against the charms of a beautiful woman! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tcrane | 8/1/2008

    " A good read in general, but I didn't really empathize with the lead characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 9/22/2007

    " My second-favorite Perez-Reverte novel (after The Nautical Chart). The grace note about el Cid sticks in my mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 6/2/2005

    " I liked this book much better than The Fencing Master. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna | 9/12/2004

    " This was a fun read that brought back many memories of my year studying abroad in Sevilla. I wasn't overly impressed with the writing or even the story but it was a fun summer read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz | 11/29/2002

    " I read about sixty pages, but I just couldn't get into it. I didn't particularly care about any of the characters and the plot just didn't pique my curiosity. "
