Item description for El ocho by Katherine Neville...

Before computer expert Cat Velis can leave for her new job in Algeria, a mysterious fortune-teller warns her of danger, and an antique dealer asks her to search for the pieces to a valuable chess set that has been missing for years. Created in the south of France in 1790, the chess set is rumored to contain the secrets behind alchemy, freemasonry, and cosmic forces. But long ago two convent girls hid the valuable chess pieces all over the world because the game played with all of the pieces is dangerously powerful.

Reviews - What do customers think about El ocho?

Un relato mágico, una historia extraordianaria   Sep 10, 2005
La riqueza de información, la cantidad de personajes importantes, inlfuyentes y misteriosos, un extraordinario manejo de los tiempos y las situaciones hacen de "El ocho", una experiencia irrepetible, una aventura que me habría gustado prolongar por más tiempo. El lector siempre se sentirá hipnotizado por una trama llena de acción impredecible...
¡¡Muchas gracias, Katherine!!.
No puedo recomendarselo a nadie  Feb 3, 2005
Un buen final.... pero incoherente. Creo que la escritora tuvo una buena intencion y una buena idea, pero definitivamente muy mal plasmada, ya que hay situaciones que completamente carecen de todo sentido comun y rayan en el gènero de novelita rosa. Tuve que terminar de leerlo para ver si en algun punto se ponia mejor, pero lamentablemente nunca sucediò. Si te gusta el genero de misterio, intrigas internacionales, acciòn y "claves", etc. mejor decidete por otro libro.
Sobresaliente  Sep 16, 2004
Definitivamente es el mejor libro que ha escrito K. Neville, dificilmente lo podrá superar. Le pasa lo mismo que a García Marquez con Cien Años de Soledad. Un libro con una riqueza de información y un manejo del enigma extraordinario. Definitivamente lo recomiendo como una de las mejores alternativas de lectura disponibles. Vale la pena
Fantastic!  Jul 24, 2004
This is the spanish version of Neville's book called _The Eight_ in English. I read it years ago but I still recommend it to people as one on the most absorbing reads. She is a master at the twisted plot. A bonus for chess fans but even if you're not it doesn't detract from the story.
Was this written in English or spanish  May 27, 2004
I can't tell from the reviews, and my Spanish stinks!
