In the mail to Shylock!

Rec'd as trade,thanks DylanS. Recently read 'The Flanders Panel' and loved it so much i'm seeking out the rest of this author's work. It's such a great feeling when you discover another author you really,really like.

Journal Entry 4 by Shylock from Skipton, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Thursday, October 13, 2005
Still think The Flanders Panel followed by The Dumas Club are the best so far, but almost full marks nonetheless for both the intrigue & the writing.

This time a hacker has gained access to the Pope's computer to make a personal plea for the rescuing of an old church from destruction. It seems some will stop at nothing to ensure its demise while others will do likewise to save it.
Much as I adore this author, I didn't feel the motives were particularly clear in this, and the reveal was a bit of a letdown for me.

Arrived today, that took a while!! I got worried that the book had gotten lost, so it was a great relief to get it from the postman. Thanks a lot Shylock! I'll finnish the book I'm reading right now, then I'll get started on this one, reading while I'm breastfeeding. ;)

At last I had time to read the book. I really enjoyed it, although I prefered "The Fencing Master". I still have to get my hands on "The Flanders Panel" and"The Dumas Club". I felt that this book was a little bit too easy to see through, I was not as surprised by the story as I was expecting to be. Still very good reading though.

Arrived safely today in Utrecht. Thanks!

And on Mt. TBR it goes.

Journal Entry 11 by Olifant from Porthmadog, Wales United Kingdom on Tuesday, June 13, 2006
Can't get into the story. Maybe it's just not the right time, I don't know for I enjoyed his other novel The Fencing Master so much. Well anyway, thanks for ringing. Sending this book along.

Journal Entry 12 by ekaterin4luv from Nürnberg, Bayern Germany on Saturday, July 01, 2006
The Seville Communion arrived savely in Nürnberg. Thank God or Olifant for waterproof packing material, because the postman left it half hanging out of our box in the rain. :-(

Journal Entry 13 by ekaterin4luv from Nürnberg, Bayern Germany on Saturday, September 09, 2006
I really liked it and liked it a bit better than The Fencing Master, but it will never be my favorite novel or author. It just didn't grip me or hook me in like some other stories. And I couldn't get near Quart.
But it was a good read, with suspence and drama.

I'll contact tithood right away.
edit: titihood want's to be skipped, I'm sendig it to cwoods.

Journal Entry 14 by ZET-734626 on Monday, October 02, 2006
Arrived in the post this morning - will get to it very soon. Thanks so much for passing it on.

Journal Entry 15 by ZET-734626 on Friday, October 13, 2006
I agree with most of the other readers - a good story but not one of his best. Having said that, I'll take a below-par Reverte novel before most works of other authors.
Contacting shylock to send it home - thanks for making it available!

This came to me through a very convoluted route and I would like to thank all those Happy BookCrossers along the delivery chain, thank you very much. I was given it by Tree-hugger who got it from Mai-day who got it from PhantomCougar who got it from Shylock ... with a note saying it was heading in my direction because they thought I'd appreciate it. And I do, I do, I do. Thank you!

I loved The Flanders Panel and have put this right at the top of my To Be Read pile - will just finish the travel book I'm reading first.

I'm hooked by the back cover already: "Someone has hacked into the Pope's personal computer ..."

Journal Entry 20 by wingNu-Kneeswing from Knaresborough, North Yorkshire United Kingdom on Sunday, December 10, 2006
Arturo Perez-Reverte has now officially joined the list of my favourite authors. I thoroughly enjoyed this, thank you very much. It's a real page turner, which I finished at four o'clock this morning. Yes, I know, but I wanted to know what happened! Besides, you don't get to read nearly 200 books in a year if you're going to be sensible about it :-)

I loved The Flanders Panel but found my total ignorance of Chess of a bit of a handicap. I had no such problem with The Seville Communion, which is written in a language I understand about a world I know - not that I'm Catholic nor Spanish but that I've spent a lifetime in and around churches!

Highly recommended!!

I know several people who would appreciate this. Unfortunately none of them are BookCrossers ...

Journal Entry 22 by wingAnonymousFinderwing on Friday, January 12, 2007
Returned to Nu-Knees by JR who loved it. Said she took a while to get into the story and remember Who was Who but once she got going she was very impressed.

Back with me while I decide what to do with it :-)

Passing to a relative (aspi37) of the Roman persuasion ... We all bring Who We Are to our reading - but some experiences are more relevant than others :-)

Journal Entry 25 by aspi37 from Luton, Bedfordshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, May 30, 2007
My friend nuknees sent this one to me. I'm a big fan of the art of reading, and this took some. Not what I would call a page turner, more slower moving than that. But I got to the end and it did not disappoint, despite its slow pace. it would definitely suit anyone looking for some steady holiday reading without any daft romances, something a bit meaty, but without any life changing philosophies.

RELEASE NOTES:

I'm going into town on friday, I will find somewhere to leave it, then i will add it to the site on saturday morning.
Released onto train from blackfriars to luton at 9pm on friday June 1st.
