Reviews - What do customers think about La Historiadora / The Historian?

Aunque de vampiros, excelente novela  Aug 2, 2007
Una novela de vampiros? Yo mismo tardé varios meses en abrir el libro por enterarme de ésto. Pero en realidad es tremendamente histórica, te describe ciudades de Europa del Este de forma fascinante.
Es una historia que aunque gira en torno de una investigación de vampiros, resalta temas históricos e incluso familiares así como tradiciones de pueblos ni muy bien comprendidos.

Es un libro un tanto extenso aunque de muy ligera lectura y, definitivamente, recomendable.
Predecible, lento y   Feb 13, 2007
Lo más relevante o interesante de este libro son las referencia históricas: hay pocas formas más entretenidas de aprender historia que a través de una novela. Al menos así debería ser. Sin embargo enuentro las emociones de los personajes tan exageradas: se angustian, viven en expresiones perpetuas de dolor y desesperación y actúan de forma insoportablmente asurda, todo para darle a la esxritora la excusa para darnos la historia en pildoras leeeeeeeentas y predecibles. Bueno para revisar historia, pero no un libro que te mantendrá en sosobra o del que no podras despegarte
Predecible, simple y pretencioso  Apr 11, 2006
No hay nada peor que un libro pretencioso y sobrevalorado, y este es uno de los libros mas pretencioso que he leido. La trama es simple hasta extremos insultantes, el desarrollo lo es todav?a mas: buscan a Dr?cula, lo encuentran y lo matan. Las dos ?ltimas acciones ocurren en el ?ltimo cap?tulo.

Esperaba mas de este libro, pero de verdad estoy muy descepcionado.
