    (E–pub READ) La catedral del mar I could not bring myself to give this two stars meaning it was merely OKThe book was a best seller in Spain with proclaiming Falcones Spain's answer to Dan Brown He is not that good and not that bad either I can see why the book was so popular for the author A Catalan wrote a historical novel of his city Barcelona This is something totally unthinkable 50 years ago when the Franco regime forbade Catalan culture

Download ´ La catedral del mar 102 Ertà che a tutt'oggi incarna lo spirito di Barcellona all'epoca in pieno fermento i vecchi istituti feudali sono al tramonto e i mercanti e i banchieri sono in ascesa sempre più influenti nel determinare le sorti della città impegnata in aspre battaglie per il controllo dei mari Intanto l'azione dell'Inuisizione minaccia la già non facile convivenza fra cristiani musulmani ed ebrei P. Hefty historical novel set in fourteenth century Barcelona and revolving around the building of a cathedral yes there are similarities to Ken Follett s Pillars of the Earth Unlike Follett s novel this is very much woven around fact and an actual building and events and is based on a contemporary chronicle It is well plotted but there is a certain predictability about it The topics you would expect to come across are there the inuisition the plague relationships with Jews and Moors the guild system money lending serfdom and slavery nobility daily life relationships between the sexes and so on It is a saga based on the main protagonist Arnau Estanyol his parents his adopted brother Joan and his subseuent life and relationships All the boxes are ticked and this makes for the predictability The novel is informative and as it is based on historical fact I did learn a good deal about the history of fourteenth century Barcelona Some of the characterisation was a little contrived In the first part of the book there were a few characters who were clearly in the way of where the plot was clearly headed and I thought to myself How is he going to dispose of them Along comes the plague and of course the characters in the way succumb leaving the plot to roll along The ending was also a little too cosy and predictableThis sounds like I m being rather harsh the plot does move along at a good pace and there is certainly warmth to it that is endearing It isn t taxing and would make a good beach read If I was into beaches

Download ´ La catedral del mar 102 Ersonaggio di inusuale tempra e umanità Arnau non esita a dedicarsi con entusiasmo al grande progetto della cattedrale del popolo E all'ombra di uelle torri gotiche dovrà lottare contro fame ingiustizie e tradimenti ataviche barriere religiose guerre peste commerci ignobili e indomabili passioni ma soprattutto per un a che i pregiudizi del tempo vorrebbero condannare alle brume del sog. I picked up this well crafted historical epic masterpiece at a charity shop and am so thrilled that I did It is passionate and beautiful inspiring uplifting and heartbreaking with a strong feel for 14th century Catalonia at the height of the InuisitionArnau Estanyol is the son of a fugitive serf who acuires freedom wealth and a high status through the help of his Jewish benefactor Hasdai Crescas and the Moorish slave he is given to him Guillem after the rescues Hasdai s three young children and the slave from a mob which has attacked the Jewry in Barcelona in a bloodthirsty pogrom caused by a blood libel He achieves great military success against the attacking ships of the enemy king of Castille and is elevated to the nobility while being forced marry the ward of the King Eleanor who he does not love as his heart belongs to the enchanting girl he adopted after the death of her parents the attractive and lively MarArnau is betrayed by his adopted brother Joan who has become a cruel and narrow minded inuisitor who together with the evil Eleanor plan and execute the kidnap rape and forced marriage of Mar Arnau falls foul of the inuisition and the author gives a great insight into the machinations of the Spanish Inuisition and it s purge of Jews and Heretics Meanwhile two women who have been earlier in their lives forced into prostitution Arnau s mother unbeknown to him Francesca and Arnau s first love the alluring and goodhearted Aledis I like his sympathetic portrayal of the prostitutes and his reminder to us that often it is many whores who s hearts are much bigger than those of the the saints The book is lingeringly erotic in parts SPOILER WARNINGTogether with Mar and Guillem they rescue Arnau from death at the hands of the inuisitionThis book is not only a real page turner of which the last 150 pages are particularly enthralling but an analysis of historical events including the Inuistion and anti Semitism society and human natureHighly recommended

Download ´ La catedral del mar 102 Barcellona XIV secolo Nel cuore dell'umile uartiere della Ribera gli occhi curiosi del piccolo Arnau sono catturati dalle maestose mura di una grande chiesa in costruzione Un incontro decisivo poiché la storia di Santa Maria del Mar sarà il cardine delle tormentate vicende della sua esistenza Figlio di un servo fuggiasco nella capitale catalana Arnau trova rifugio e uella sospirata lib. It is very important to know when you start this book that it is in fact based on the Chronica of King Pedro III Although historical fiction it closely follows true events in Catalonia during the 1300s under King Pedro s reign There is tons of history incorporated into the novel At the same time it has an engaging and fast moving plot You will learn about Barcelona the building of the cathedral Sant Maria de la Mar You will be impressed by the cathedral s history its beauty and how it engaged the life of so many in Barcelona It was built for and by the people of Barcelona All its people It was built at the site of an older church and underneath it is an ancient Roman cemetery However the book and the plot covers many many other actual events wars the bubonic plague the Inuisition guild practices treatment of women and Jews in fact all aspects of life in Barcelona during the 1300s this book is a perfect example of how historical fiction can teach in a delightful engrossing manner There is a author s note that clearly explains what is fiction and what is fact The events that have been altered are pointed out What is amazing is that what seems fiction is fact I wish I had read it in the middle of the novel rather than at the end So why only three stars I know that for me to say I like the book feels appropriate than to say I really liked it This is because I never really attached my self to the characters The book is concerned with the unrolling of the plot than character analysis Each character plays a significant role there are none that could have been eliminated Each character was rounded and well thought out but maybe the fact that all was so well planned that there were few bizarre elements that it simply felt a bit boring I do not mean the plot was boring that was rolling along at full speed continually In fact it felt a bit cinematicSo this book provides great history in an engaging story but without much sparkle I am very glad I read it I learned so very very much Did you know that the Inuisition began very early in Catalonia Dis you know that people were trading and profiting from the buying and selling of different currencies in the 1300s Did you know that when two serfs were married the master had the right to sleep with the woman first on the night of their marriage You will not regret reading this book
