Warning: this is my opinion and may or may not coincide with that of others.
I agree a beautiful description of Navarre (I even dare say that something tiring at the end of the pages ...), but the rest is unbearable. I could expand on the cast of bad characters there are, but to go faster I will talk about the impressions that have generated me the protagonist and the most relevant side present in history.
We Are Who We Are: June 2012
For not changing, did not change my luck. -I am the same it's just that you are and that with you everything is more bearable. But at least The rest, with their dreams - tired, defeated, bored -, one after another on the road.
American Crow - BIRDS TO KNOW
These crows can be seen throughout the city and are especially beautiful returning to their perches at dusk. Crows can be seen across the city and are especially beautiful heading to their roosts at sunset.
Homeless dog brings a daily gift to the woman who feeds him
Instead of gulping down the bowls of rice offered to him, as most dogs do, Tua Plu always comes with a gift in return. One of these homeless dogs brings a gift every day to Orawan, as a token of their appreciation.
Another character who completely disarms the part of Amaia's private life is James, the husband. Don Perfecto with an American accent, rich, handsome, the so-so-trite expression of the "Greek god" used in the pink novel, Amaia's half-orange who is dedicated exclusively to drinking the winds for her, treating her like a queen and, cancel your personality if you ever had it. Ojito I do not say that there are no guys who want their partners and treat them well. It is simply the way it has to be. It is unreal, the way it gives way to everything, the way it has to behave as if its existence were dependent on what Amaia wants that day ... I prefer a character with character, imperfect , that makes mistakes that make it more human. A character that can love the protagonist with madness and not for it to be a monster that bores nothing more to enter scene. As for the plot and the main reason that I did not like the book, I consider it a black novel to call it somehow, but that could well have been left in mere fiction. I personally read a lot of this genre and although I know that not all the styles of the black novel have to be the same, I do see things I would never put to an argument where a murder is to be resolved. The theme of mythology is fine to give atmosphere. Take advantage of the geographical situation to dust the Basque-Navarrese legends of the area and gives a curious touch, but from there to mix the esoteric theme with the reality of the case ... Or churras or merinas, but do not mix them both. And of the tarot theme, we do not even talk. It has been tedious for me to read the parts in which they threw the letters and spoke of the beyond and bla bla bla. For setting, okay, but basing half-weave on that ...To conclude, and to explain to me a little why I hate so much, I have to acknowledge that my general dissatisfaction with the book comes more from the author than from the book itself. A few days ago Dolores Redondo, in his tour of Spain promoting the last book of the trilogy, passed by my city and as it took a while to read The invisible guardian bought it and tried to read as much as I could to when she came to give the talk. It turned out to me, in general terms, an overbearing and stretched-out woman with a lot of fame at her head. And although the book was starting to look mediocre to me, the rest of the way I read it with the bad impression of seeing the author behind each word and, therefore, I had the bad taste of my mouth until the last page. It is one of the few times that I have passed that I have been conditioned reading because of the author.
But again, I reiterate that this is my opinion and as such does not have to coincide with that of others.
It's being a phenomenon in sales, I'm aware, and I'd dare say it's no reason to say a book is good. He has simply been given more hype than many others. Nor do I say that there are not people that you liked. You just have to see GR's rates to realize that in general people like it.
To me, in any case, no. And I will not read any more of this trilogy.
