He put this experience into his book ‘Territorio Comanche’, focusing on Spanish novelist and ex-journalist. That was confirmed inwhen was published the first book of his Captain Alatriste saga, which has been his trademark. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

a,arillo It was a rich, thriving, bursting-with-life scene. He put this experience into his book ‘Territorio Comanche’, focusing on the years of Bosnian massacres. Feb 10, Oscar Amador rated it really liked it.

The final part of the book keeps readers in suspense as Alatriste flees after being falsely accused of murder while avoiding the hand of Maletesta, and in the long run, saving the life of his beloved king from the hands of an assassin. Jun 11, Irene rated it liked it. But Alatriste soon finds this love short spoken when he finds himself face to face with the mysterious cavalier in the yellow doublet who is no other than King Phillip IV, whom Alatriste is forced to rival with for the eye of the beholden beauty.

Although it took me awhile to get through The Sun Over Breda and I couldn’t imagine how the author could top The King’s Gold without getting overly dramatic or even silly, this book exceeded my expectations and is probably my favorite of the series, with the exception of the first book of course.


Risking their lives and friendships, they race to save their monarch, facing off against friends and old enemies alike. I love these books, and am almost reluctant to pick up the next one, which is the last one I have in translation I understand there might be more?

As for me it was the most boring book from all the series about captain Alatriste. And I must say, I could not have been better informed. The Captain, of course, cannot be told what to do, and alienates friends and enemies alike by continuing to see the actress. Book by book I am losing interest in the story.

In the end the book was sword fighting, bedding of wenches, betrayal, good guys winning although I think Alatriste is a right real cadmore sword fighting and more bedding of wenches. And what a hero Captain Alatriste is!

Toegether, these men form a memorable pair. Series about captain Alatriste are very interesting and all covered with hidden facts which explain in some way modern Spain, but, as for me, I think drl series needs one big and very strong amraillo.

Un puro corral de comedia. I have two quibbles though, one is so spoiler-ridden that I hesitate to describe it in any way other than what felt like a failure of commitment by Perez-Reverte, amadillo the other is Joseph Conrad’s The Duel, caballdro dealt with a similar subject matter of honor codes in a amaeillo more powerful and eloquent way. No es malo y tiene sus momentos, pero es el que menos me ha gustado de la serie. Vale comprarlo y leerlo. It is fairly fast-paced and has all the intrigue and grit that I have come to expect, as well as the return of many of the characters from The King’s Gold and the rest of the series.

Characters lose their real image and realism goes on secon We often hear legends about Spanish love. What makes Alatriste the White Hat, as it were.

My first book in this series. The narrator, the 16 year old Inigo, has the advantage of retelling this tale in his old age so he knows the bleak future of the Spanish Empire, his master Captain Alatriste and of the reign of Philip IV.


In this fifth installment of the Captain Alatriste series, Inigo now nearly 17 and his mentor discover a plot to murder the king. Arturo Perez-Reverte seems to have taken a long hard look at the deficiencies in the previous volumes and repeaired them.

The vanity of the swordsmen for a decaying empire, duels over one wrong glance, strict adherence to considerations nubon honor, pageantry, assignations, plays, poets whose stars rise and fall at the whims of the court: I also enjoyed many of the poetic touches added along the way, most of which are witty aphorisms and poems written by playwriter Francisco de Quevedo who is a character in the book.

I think this is deliberate on the part of the author, to plan the books so you can jump in at any point. And t I cabaolero this is my favorite book so far caballlero this series–more and deeper aspects of Captain Alatriste’s character are revealed, and we experience the pangs and de and disillusionments of his young protege Inigo on the path to adulthood as well as Inigo’s often wise, frequently ironic perspective as he narrates the story from the distance of old age.

What was good was the description of 17th Century Spain. A commendable piece of research. God, I don’t want caballrro spoil it, but the pure wonderful irony of it.

Upon opening this book, I was most affected by Perez-Reverte’s style of writing. We often hear legends about Spanish love. The womanizing Phillip IV becomes Alatriste’s rival for the same woman, putting the Captain on the collision course plot that ends well, but by the skin of his teeth. Oct 03, Gerardo B.
