Item description for El Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte...

Lucas Corso is a bibliophile mercenary in the middle of two searches. He needs to prove if a manuscript of The Three Musketeers is genuine. He must also find the solution to the enigma of a diabolic book, burned at the printers in 1667 by the Holy office and condemned by the Vatican; only two other copies are known. The stories intermingle and result in a page-turning thriller distinctive of Perez Reverte s writing. The book was taken to the big screen in a movie titled The Ninth Gate by renowned director Roman Polanski.

Description in Spanish

Descifrar el misterio de un libro que invoca al demonio, del que slo quedan tres ejemplares en el mundo, se convirti para Lucas Corso, comprador de libros antiguos por encargo, en peligrosa aventura. Pero por si esto fuera poco, un captulo manuscrito de los tres mosqueteros de Alejandro Dumas entra en escena y se entremezclan historias para dar origen a un apasionante thriller al mejor estilo de Arturo Prez-Reverte. "El club Dumas" (1993), una de las novelas ms emblemticas del autor, constituye un modelo ejemplar de utilizacin de los ms genuinos ingredientes de la novela de intriga, de investigacin criminal, ambientacin histrica y ficcin culturalista, adems de ser un homenaje al maestro del folletn decimonnico, Alejandro Dumas. Esta novela ha sido llevada a la gran pantalla por Roman Polanski con el ttulo "La novena puerta".

Reviews - What do customers think about El Club Dumas?

Excelent  Jan 31, 2008
Extraordinary book, the best of it: the way it is written. Highly recommended for someone looking far more that a simple story and a natural narrative. Characters are great and real, it contains many references to the life and work of Alexandre Dumas (specifically to the three musketeers' saga), even in the way it is written.

Extraordinario libro, lo mejor: la forma como esta escrito. Muy recomendable para quien busca mas que simplemente una historia fria y una narración natural. Los personajes son exelentes y reales, contiene muchas referencias a la vida y obra de Alexandre Dumas (específicamente a la saga de los tres mosqueteros), inclusive en la forma en como esta escrito.
