The Last Cato

There are improbable protagonists who speak particularly improbably. It ended like it should. Personally relevant and cheap! I have absolutely no interest in The Da Vinci Code or any books of that sort, but I picked this up for two reasons: The markings, symbolizing the Seven Deadly Sins, are part of an elaborate initiation ritual for the Staurofilakes, the clandestine brotherhood hiding the True Cross for centuries, headed by a secretive figure called Cato.

I really didn’t like the ending at all – found it too ridiculous and silly and it ruined the book for me. Once in the mode of interpreting Dante as a roadmap to solving seven deadly puzzles, I found the book to become a bit boring.

Nada que no mes esperase, es un Bestseller sin el nombre de Stephen King en la portada. There maitlde already been several rather lousy works matildde on Dante’s Inferno, and this adds to that list. Though well- researched and densely plotted, the story telling itself lags sometimes. I was concerned that I’d go through all pages and be disgusted by the ending, as I was recently with Edgar Sawtelle, but that wasn’t the case here. Una lectura muy recomendada.
