El Ultimo Caton : Matilde Asensi :

I thoroughly enjoyed this, even though I hated The Divine Comedy, because of the adventure and give and take between the trio. Recomendable y todo eso. She has more than 20 million readers worldwide and has become the reference of quality bests-sellers in Spanish language. Once in the mode of interpreting Dante as a roadmap to solving seven deadly puzzles, I found the book to become a bit boring.

Ottavia Salina is called upon by the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church to decipher the scars found on an Ethiopian man’s corpse: When the body of an Ethiopian man covered with tattoos of crosses and Greek letters is discovered, the Vatican summons Dr.

Was he really writing a coded message to a select group of the knowledgeable? There have already been several rather lousy works based on Dante’s Inferno, and this adds to that list.

I am not going to lie though Aug 25, Ana M. En algunas ocasiones te llevas sorpresas muy agradables, esta fue una de ellas. The main character, Ottavia, is a high-ranking nun working in the Vatican. Vatican nun, papal guard, Middle Eastern man search secret sect. The Swiss Guard remains manly and somewhat of a pointless spoke in their wheel. Want to Read saving…. She specializes in ancient manuscripts and research, and therefore she’s stunned when h I have absolutely no interest in The Da Vinci Code or any books of that sort, but Asensj picked this uultimo for two reasons: She specializes in ancient asenai and research, and therefore she’s stunned when her superiors need her expertise in a new assignment – identifying unusual tattoos on the corpse of a dead Ethiopian.


I didn’t aspire to all that; I was simply content to wear some simple pants Return to Book Page. Personally relevant and cheap! Those who are familiar with it will find themselves revisited by overwhelming claustrophobia in places, reliving the Vatican’s removal of any and all air, fresh or otherwise. There are improbable protagonists who speak particularly improbably. I was a bit turned off when the main character, a nun, falls in love.

And it’s hard for me to say this, because Asensi’s writing has more quality than Brown’s the construction of phrases, the richness of vocabularybut the truth is I never felt engrossed by the book – and that made its reading lukewarm and emotionless, ruining all the rest for me. We learn a fair bit about early church history, and also some of the workings of the Vatican. Either the translation is somewhat lacking or the author’s got a tin-ear for conversation.

The Vatican high command clearly riven by some factionalism is scared by the rapid progress the nun makes and takes her off the case, only to reassign her when they find that precious relics and crosses related to the prior investigation are disappearing from various churches around the world.

The story revolves around the search for the True Cross that Jesus Christ was crucified on. Holy relics are disappearing from sacred spots around the world—and the Vatican cston do whatever it takes to stop the thieves from stealing what is left of the scattered splinters of the True Cross. Over the years, fragments of the Cross have passed out of their reach, to churches all over Europe.

The Last Cato

Open Preview See a Problem? Books by Matilde Asensi. I was concerned that I’d go through all pages and be disgusted by the ending, as I was recently with Edgar Sawtelle, but that wasn’t the case here. Una lectura muy recomendada.


Paperbackpages. Holy relics are disappearing from sacred spots around the world—and the Vatican will do whatever it takes to stop the thieves f A masterful ultim of Christian scholarship and thrilling adventure, The Last Cato is a ccaton about the race to find the secret location of the Vera Cruz, the True Cross on which Christ was crucified, and the ancient brotherhood sworn to protect it.

Salina uncovers the connection between the brotherhood and Dante’s Divine Comedyand races across the globe to Christianity’s ancient capitals. Un libro de aventuras en el que los protagonistas dejan a Indiana Jones como un “mindungui”, jejeje. Apr 19, tara rated it it was ok. Refresh and try again.

Though well- researched and densely catton, the ulitmo telling itself lags sometimes. The only questions remaining are why the secret cult is gathering the Cross remnants and what motivates Captain Kaspar Glauser-Royst. If perchance you are looking eel an excellent plus religious thriller I would highly reccomend The Book of Q by Jonathan Rabb!!

It isn’t long before the trio discovers that the strange tattoos of crosses and Greek letters link the corpse to the Staurofilakes, a secret brotherhood dedicated to protecting the “True Cross,” the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified.

For those who aren’t familiar with post Vatican II history, her references are a terrific place to start. No trivia or quizzes yet.

First of all this book could not decide what genre it was Apr 26, M M rated it did not like it. However, the book depended too much on slapstick, silly humor and cheezy romance to gel things together.

There is plenty of payload here, which more than makes up for the thin characters. To see what catoj friends thought of this book, please sign up.

Given only the sparest of details about the events surrounding the Ethiopian man’s death, Ottavia is ordered asemsi discover the origins of and meaning behind the strange tattoos.
