it was amazing
Read 2 times. Last read September 3, 2018 to September 9, 2018.

Even more misterious and deep than the first two times I read it. In spite of the slow reading, the following of the clues, the theories built over its passages, themes, characters, I still don't know what is really happening there. What is this ship? (Costello?) asks the dead body of Viernes. Perhaps it doesn't matter. What matters here is that this is a truly infinite book, an immortal one. One can read it over and over again and it will never lose a bit of interest, beauty, misteriousness and a dark, serious charm. It is a piece like no other. Impressive.
