Denne bog var mindst ligeså underholdende som første gang jeg læste den. Den fantastiske historie om den gamle Pagamino og hans mange løgne - ikke mindst over for sig selv - der dækker over en i bund og grund god gravrøver. Samtidig er mange af Pagaminos løgne sandheder som dem der bestemmer sandheden (i særdeleshed kirken) ikke ønsker skal være sande. På den måde bliver bogen også et spejl der viser at nogen gange er løgnen sandhed og sandheden løgn og det hele handler om perspektivet. Bogen ha ...more

Recommended to Rita by: Read as a group read.
Strange little book from the critically acclaimed Danish author Bjarne Reuter. I find it a bit difficult to rate this one for several reasons. I didn't like the writing style. To be honest I'm not sure that it's the style that Reuter writes in that I don't like or if this book was just poorly edited. He switches between first and third person narration, which at best, is confusing to the reader. Typing/typographical errors were scattered throughout the pages and there blank pages too... It was v ...more

En dejlig, anderledes fortælling med en uventet 'slutning'.

Det er en rigtig god røverhistorie. Perfekt til lange sommerdage i hængekøjen eller til en ferie I italien.

I have very mixed feelings about this book.

First off, I have never been a big fan of Reuter's style of writing. However, I found the story to be quite intriguing, this strange mix of historical realism, fantasy and magical realism.

I really did enjoy the cynical unlikeable main character and his odd stray bits of humanity (Piccolino) to his extravagant narcissism and mistreatment of others (Arturo).

The timeline is difficult and twisted all of course due to Pagamino's unreliability and his talen

jeg har læst flere bøger af Bjarne Reuter der er rigtigt gode, Desværre syntes jeg ikke denne lever op til de forventninger - den er promoveret som en middelalder-roman og tonen er også holdt i den gamle stil, og flere latinske fraser er blevet indskrevet i vores hovedpersons ytringer. Alt sammen med til at skabe en særlig stemning.
Det lykkedes fint nok, desværre bliver det bare for meget for min smag, så sammenholdt med historiens langsommelighed bliver det nok ikke en bog jeg vil læse igen.

Meget morsom. Underfundig moralsk spekulation om de gode og de onde i heksebrænderiet.

Rigtig god bog, med en del god mystik i. Ikke en bog for sarte sjæle.

Velskrevet og spændende. Den er så god, at jeg har læst den 3 gange, og jeg er ellers ikke typen der læser de samme bøger flere gange.

Jeg tror aldrig jeg bliver den store fan af Reuters stil. Denne her var dog meget sjov og rigtig snirklet. Fyldt med gode historier undervejs og ret hyggelig
