    One thought on “The Seville Communion”

    1. 3 stars to Arturo P rez Reverte s The Seville Communion, a Spanish to English translated thriller novel with a very intriguing story about the Catholic church, corporate corruption and love This was a good book, and I d recommend it to fans of the genre or of translated novels however, it could have packed even of a punch, which is why it falls somewhere between a 3 and 4.StoryFather Quart works in a special research unit IEA Investigation for External Affairs within the Catholic church, and he [...]

    2. I may prefer Arturo Perez Reverte when he writes his historical adventures featuring Captain Alatriste, but his contemporary thrillers are not without merit.The Seville Communionis my second one, afterThe Club Dumas, and I had some issues with it, but overall it was quite a memorable journey, one that I intend to retrace by visiting the location soon.As a thriller set in the clerical world and dealing with mysterious murders, church politics, high finance and crises of faith, the book reminded m [...]

    3. The stunning novel of suspense, says the strapline on the cover of my edition of this novel Review quotes elsewhere on the cover and in the first couple of pages of the book repeat that it s a thriller, talk of its page turning pace, describe the novel as a noir and P rez Reverte as the thinking man s Robert Ludlum .All of which must have disappointed a hell of a lot of readers, who ll have discovered instead a book that uses a lightly done whodunnit backdrop to give us of a novel of ideas than [...]

    4. I found this book in a resort in the Caribbean, it took me two holidays to actually finish reading it I was never gripped by it but was curious to see how the plot would evolve I found it overall disappointing The characters were superficial and stereotypical, the rich were beautiful, the poor either greasy or grotesque The descriptions of them, particularly of the interesting trio the boxer, the fake lawyer and the singer were repetitive, page and page over So were the descriptions of the sunl [...]

    5. The set up is intriguing A hacker, dubbed Vespers, breaks into the Pope s personal email and leaves a cryptic plea to save an obscure historic church in Seville Political and financial interests including the archbishop of Seville want the church demolished to exploit the value of the real estate The hacker has been careful to conceal his tracks, and the security breach seems to disturb the Vatican hierarchy than the contents of the message, despite the disclosure that recently, two deaths occu [...]

    6. This brilliant story has a surprising ending The scenes of Sevilla and the dialogue are so vivid By the way I read it in Spanish where the title is La piel del tambor I think this is his best of the so called mysteries, although they are much than that His mastery of all aspects of the Spanish languages, from the 17th century dialogue in the Capitan Alatriste series, to the Mexican street language and Spanish drug slang to the 19th century Franglish in Trafalgar have earned him a place in the R [...]

    7. A hacker breaks into the Vatican s computer to leave a message for the Pope that says that there i s a church in Seville that kills to defend itself It turns out that there is a church that some want to tear down and to be replaced with a profitable adventure And two people have died accidentally Abhorring any kind of scandal, the Catholic Church gets the IEA Institute of External Affairs to look into the matter They send Father Lorenzo Quart to impartially gather information about the unfortun [...]

    8. 2.5 stars Poor writing Weak plot Conceptually okay a few ideas to contemplate I am travelling and was given this book on my first day away from home by someone I was staying with Given that my time has been broken up by a constant flow of social encounters, I have had difficulty reading anything serious Hence this review I have often been curious about the novels of P rez Reverte I no longer am I found much of my reading experience to be spoiled by stereotypical characters, stilted dialogue and [...]

    9. The end is disappointing He falls into the dark lady cliche trap But the book is beautifully written, with a touch of Marquez swirling around in there amongst the rest of his wonderful writing The mystery s concept and development are mostly wonderful I just think he couldn t decide to what to do with the ending, and he made the wrong choice But again, great book Loved it I will read it again.

    10. The star of this show was Seville, that Andalusian centuries old charmer wrapped in her robes of every sort of pageantry the history of Europe had to offer P rez Reverte deftly uses the complexity of setting, its layers of contrasts and contradictions to underpin the same aspects of its clerics, the stubborn old priest Don Priamo and handsome, disciplined Lorenzo Quart The story ostensibly a thriller is set in motion when a hacker makes his way through to the pope s personal computer leaving a m [...]

    11. Primeiro h Lorenzo Quart, o padre enviado de Roma para saber o que se passa em torno da igreja de Nossa Senhora das L grimas E h mais dois padres, Pr amo Ferro, o velho cura que se defende a golpes de mau feitio, apaixonado pela astronomia, e o seu jovem ac lito, scar Lobato, que vai ser transferido por castigo E Gris Marsala, a freira americana, arquitecta dos andaimes.E h Macarena Bruner, a duquesa jovem de olhos cor de mel, que guarda o isqueiro na al a do soutien E Maria Cruz, a velha duques [...]

    13.

    14. Okay, so I bought this book thinking it was part of the author s Captain Alatriste series and almost returned it when I realized it was a technological thriller, set in 1995 vintage Seville, with a Vatican priest as the main character I m very glad I kept it.For me, it was less a thriller though the mysteries are intriguing , an intense character study of a very different sort of man Lorenzo Quart, the priest and protagonist, characterizes himself as the last Knight Templar, obedient and loyal [...]

    15. Excelente narrativa y completo dominio del di logo entre personajes hacen casi imposible soltar este libro El personaje de Macarena Brunner es uno de los m s sexys que he le do y su relaci n de flirteo con el padre Quart te hacen olvidar el tema principal de sta novela Otra novela bien escrita y entretenida de mi escritor favorito, recomendada.

    16. Le da una segunda vez y difrutada doble.Si algo no pueden criticarle a APR es su amenidad.Les da tres vueltas y media a muchos escritores espa oles en ese aspecto

    17. At first I wasn t sure I liked this book, but I m glad I kept reading anyway I have a tendency to like books about priests, probably because I nearly became one The seminary puts an indelible mark on even a man who got thrown out as quickly as I did I prefer to think it was my questions about the mis translation of Song of Solomon chapter 7, verse 2 on the other hand, it probably had something to do with several fistfights, breaking a poolstick over someone s head in the commons area, and the ev [...]

    18. It s funny well, funny to me that I read this right after reading Daniel Silva s Fallen Angel Both are about Vatican hit men, sent out to intervene in crimes that involve priests, churches, art, death If you ever find yourself wondering what sets a good thriller apart from a literary thriller, those two books fallen angel and seville communion kind of sum it up In fallen angel, the action is fast, the dialogue is fairly minimal, there is some soul searching but it s fairly clipped The Seville Co [...]

    19. This the the first of 4 books by Perez Reverte I have read and I have liked them a lot This one may be especially appropriate right now in that takes place partially in the Vatican The story starts with a hacker gaining accessed the Pope s personal computer to put a message about a small Seville church that is going to be demolished A very unusual priest very snappy dresser who seems to specialize in defusing difficult situations, is sent to investigate what has become a very muddled mess Severa [...]

    20. THE SEVILLE COMMUNION starts when someone hacks into the Pope s personal computer to plead for saving a small church, Our Lady of the Tears, in central Seville.The church is small and dilapidated and is led by an elderly and old fashioned priest, Father Ferro It is also slated for demolition, as Bank Cartujano and its greedy vice chairman, working in cahoots with the local archbishop, want to make a fortune by buying the property at a fraction of its true value.The Vatican dispatches Father Lore [...]

    21. The Seville Communion is arguably one of Perez Reverte s best books The narrative is about a small chapel in Sevilla that is scheduled to be razed because the mayor has plans and investors for the site occupied by the church There is only one problem the church is killing the very workers that are trying to destroy it The city government is livid, so they present the problem to a higher authority the Vatican, and solicit intervention and resolution of their problem Their plea goes all the way to [...]

    22. I had pretty high expectations of this book though I liked some elements of it Vatican politics, Templar metaphor for the hero, the description of Seville, and the setup of the plot , I was quite disappointed I think the book was a bit rambling especially for a mystery thriller , the investigator didn t seem to be as good as his rep view spoiler he failed to solve either mystery the identity of the hacker which he only discovered after the fact because it was revealed to him, i.e not because he [...]

    23. trange roman que celui ci Tout y est pour faire un parfait roman foisonnant et passionnant Pourtant a n a pas pris avec moi Bizarrement j ai eu du mal y entrer Le style est toujours aussi distingu , raffin , m me si j ai trouv un peu longues et superflues les digressions en plein dialogues qui font perdre le fil , les descriptions de S ville sont envo tantes, l atmosph re est parfaitement rendue, les personnages sont eux aussi assez fouill s Malgr toutes ces ind niables qualit s, je n ai pas per [...]
