Uma leitura interessante e diferente, uma sátira social, política e religiosa com algum humor irónico.
Não gostei da última parte e achei demasiado forçado e "frio" o final.
As 350 páginas parecem o dobro, pela densidade do texto e complexidade narrativa.
O prólogo, bastante longo, é uma boa forma de conhecer melhor o autor, mas contém spoilers, pelo que recomendo a sua leitura apenas no final.
Recomendo a quem goste de ler algo diferente dos géneros mais vulgares.

Gonzalo Torrente Ballester as a great way with words and with them he can do wonderful things, like this abstract story where we can travel throe time just by the way the characters talk. Great, strong and recognizable characters, social history, and a truly great moral story.
This book is a little hard to read, the density of text is evident, but the story is so persuasive that we cant stop reading. Does have the biggest preface ever.

Although primarily a novelist, he also published journalism, essays, and plays. His career as a writer began in Oviedo, but developed largely in Madrid.

After moving around frequently in the later 1920s and early 1930s, including a period in Paris, he returned to Spain and linked himself to Franco's Falange party in order to save his own life and that of his family. His first novel, Javier Mariño,
