El Ultimo Caton

I thought very much about rating it a three but it does not merit that rating as there is so much that is just a wreck about this book. Lots of historic facts “hammered” into the story, lots of humoristic attempts that didn’t work for me, all of this in a first person narrative, namely Catkn, who never convinced me as a character – as well as Farag “too good to be true” Boswell. Holy relics are disappearing from sacred spots around the world—and the Vatican will do whatever it takes to stop the thieves from stealing what is left of the scattered splinters of the True Cross.

Over the years, fragments of the Cross have passed out of their reach, to churches all over Europe.

Ottavia Salina is called upon by the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church to decipher the scars found on an Ethiopian man’s corpse: Overall, I found this to be a B-level thriller, not on a level with The DaVinci Code, in which interest was better sustained for the duration. That being said, the book has a comment on the front cover stating: El final me ha gustado, mucho.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Al final hasta me ha gustado!! Personally relevant and cheap! Books by Matilde Asensi. Holy relics are disappearing from sacred spots around the world—and the Vatican will do whatever it takes to stop the thieves f A masterful blend of Christian scholarship and thrilling adventure, The Last Cato is a novel about the race to find the secret location of the Vera Cruz, the True Cross on which Christ was crucified, and the ancient brotherhood sworn to protect it.


En algunas ocasiones te llevas sorpresas muy agradables, esta fue una de ellas. I really like books that cross genres cleverly but this 2. This is tied into Dante’s purgatory and the three must solve several mysteries tied to seven cities and the seven deadly sins.

There have already been several rather lousy works based on Dante’s Inferno, and this adds to that list. Nada que no mes esperase, es un Bestseller sin el nombre de Stephen King en la portada. Una lectura muy recomendada. I really didn’t like the ending at all – found it too ridiculous and silly and it ruined the book for me.

The Swiss Guard remains manly and somewhat of a pointless spoke in their wheel. Jun 28, Harriet rated it really liked it. Lists with This Book. The truth of the matter really is that I may well be categorized as one of those people who has grown tired of biblical mystery themed literature.

Misterio, sociedades secretas, una obra de la cultura universal La Divina Comedia como manual para descifrar la clave There’s a nun working in the Vatican archives and there’s a Swiss Guard and a Coptic polyglot archaeologist, and the three of them are tasked with the investigation into a dead body found decorated with strange symbols and crosses. And it’s hard for me to say this, because Asensi’s writing has more quality than Brown’s the construction of phrases, the richness of vocabularybut the truth is I never felt engrossed by the book – and that made its reading lukewarm and emotionless, ruining all the rest for me.


Apr 26, M M rated it did not like it.

Once in the mode of interpreting Dante as a roadmap to solving seven deadly puzzles, I found the book to become a bit boring. Dec 07, Jaidee rated it it was ok Shelves: I was a bit turned off when the main character, a nun, falls in love.

This is an intelligent, well-researched book and it magilde a great deal of fun. So, it wasn’t a waste of time at all, but in the near future meaning the next few years I’m not picking up another book by this author. This book is a delightful historical fantasy. But even as a picaresque, I thought it was bad.

El Ultimo Caton : Matilde Asensi :

The characters were not internally consistent and thus became caricatures rather than complex human beings struggling with politics, world events and their Christian faith. Her books, of an indubitable quality and proven historical documentation, have been translated to 15 languages. Open Preview See a Problem? An Ethiopian man is found dead and his body has been scarified. It’s neither a proper historical thriller nor a very good crime novel. Paperbackpages.

No estoy muy convencida con el asunto de la Roca, pero supongo que lo han dejado un poco abierto para poder asebsi un segundo libro. This book is along the lines of the DaVinci Code. I really like books that cross genres cleverly but this book was a mish mash that was often very jarring!!

There is plenty of payload here, which more than makes up for the thin characters.
