(review in English below)

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.
