Só faltou um maior desenvolvimento dos personagens para merecer 4 estrelas ;)

"Norte contra sur" (3/5)

Durante la guerra de Secesión estadounidense, dos hombres se enfrentan encarnizadamente en el estado de la Florida. Verne ha dejado muy clara su simpatía por los yanquis en cuanta oportunidad tuvo.

After decades of waiting to get my hands on this book I found that it was not the Epic Civil War novel I had been building it up to be. "Gone With the Wind" it is not. The story dwells on a localized incident in Jacksonville, Florida surrounding a fictional family of northerners whose plantation become the target of southern prejudices midway through the war. Interestingly enough, although there is a doubly strong antagonist, the office of the protagonist is spread out amongst many members of th ...more
