Un libro che scorre via grazie ad una trama abbastanza avvincente ed intrigante, l'argomento un po' delicato contribuisce a tener alta la voglia di andare avanti. Qualche buon colpo di scena qua e là che non guasta mai.
Finale un po' così così, con il classico "ti faccio intravvedere, ma immagina tu" che però non è gestito nel migliore dei modi e con un Deus ex machina che lascia un po' perplessi.
Comunque un buon libro che riesce anche a far riflettere e instilla qualche dubbio qua e là.

Ottima l'ambientazione storica dell'impero romano, il protagonista viene inviato nei luoghi dove Gesù ha vissuto per accertarsi che sia realmente risorto. Davvero un ottimo romanzo.

Estupendo libro. Si te gustó la serie Roma o King Jesus de Robert Graves, este es una elección segura. Aunque no es tan riguroso como este último, es mucho más ameno.

Empezó bien, pero ha ido perdiendo interés a medida que iba avanzando. Buena idea, pero para mi gusto no demasiado bien desarrollada.
