Traducerea nu mi s-a parut dintre cele mai bune, si mai mult ca sigur textul in limba originala are o alta valoare. Cu toate acestea, asta nu m-a impiedicat sa termin cele 400 de pagini in doua zile si sa-mi capteze atentia considerabil. ...more

Het is lang geleden dat ik zo veel moeite moest doen om goed in het verhaal van een boek te komen. En zo veel moeite ook om het uit te lezen. Antiquair Artur Aiguader wordt vermoord en zijn adoptiezoon, schrijver Enrique Alonso, gaat op eigen houtje aan de slag om de moordenaar te vinden. Alles d... ...more

I stumbled across Sánchez’s work on NetGalley when I requested The Art Restorer, reviewed later this week. The publisher was incredibly accommodating and provided a galley of this for me to review as well! (Damn me and my completion-ist tendencies!) I received no compensation in return for my hon... ...more

Another "lost in translation?" review: I gave up after 2 chapters. I don't care how fascinating this story might be. The style of writing is so poor, it feels like the author was paid per word. I picked this up because a few folks said it reminded them of "Shadow of the Wind"--ABSOLUTELY NO COMPA... ...more

Sánchez prefaces this compelling novel with the assertion that some of the events described are real, which, combined with Sánchez's fine writing, lends this book a delicious plausibility.

I found the thriller aspects to be incredibly predictable. I figured out whodunnit about 250 pages before the protagonist and the plodding story just had me wishing the characters would just hurry up already. This is not even getting into the "romance" aspect of the novel which was laughable. If... ...more

E-o carte cu crimă și mister – așa c-o să-ncerc să nu spun prea multe.

„Anticarul” e prima carte a lui Julian Sanchez - arbitru de baschet în liga ACB :) unde joacă cele mai tari echipe din campionatul spaniol, pasionat în egală măsură de sport și de scris. Învață o lecție de perseverență, publicâ... ...more

Un misterio reservado solo para algunos sabios, un manuscrito antiguo en manos de un anticuario conocedor del pasado europeo, y un escritor que sin quererlo se ve envuelto en una historia llena de intrigas, envidias y muerte. Estos son los elementos en los que se desarrolla "El Anticuario" de Jul... ...more

Sarò breve: uno dei libri più noiosi che abbia letto nell'ultimo anno! Scorre lento,dialoghi di prima elementare,situazioni troppo forzate,concordo con chi ha detto che NON CI SONO COLPI DI SCENA...solo nel finale si stravolge un pò la cosa ma io l'ho capita a metà libro quando ho pensato di abba... ...more
