Curt però intens, pensava que tindria quelcom d'acció/intriga però no, és una novel·la merament descriptiva que agafa encara més interès si coneixes la zona del Rosselló (Cervera de la Marenda, Portvendres, etc. fins a Salses). A part, per copsar bé totes les descripcions no està de més tenir una mica de vocabulari nàutic.

Josep Pla is one of the most famous authors of Catalan literature. I read this book when I was in high school and frankly I found it very, very heavy. Pla is an author with a prodigious language domain but in my opinion he stops too much in descriptions. He can write a whole page only to describe the color and texture of a stone that the main character has found in the path.
