  • Re­view:

    I am sure this book's sword­­play is ex­ten­­sive­­ly re­searched. Would it have been so dif­­fi­cult to have some­one with even par­­tial knowl­­edge of span­ish give it a read?

    At first it was just an­noy­ing, like say­ing "hedges of ma­­tor­ral" which is like say­ing "hedges of bush" but it gets even worse as the book moves for­ward, from writ­ing Pérez "Peréz" to writ­ing Guzmán with a strange di­a­crit­ic that looks like horns in the u and has nev­er been part of span­ish.

    And then... and then there is the on­­ly whole span­ish phrase in the book and it's "por la derecha a luchar luchas más", which is so hor­rif­i­­cal­­ly bro­ken if this had been a pa­per book I would have thrown it out the win­­dow. And the book al­­most ends with a char­ac­ter re­­peat­ing "luchar luchas más".

    So, good idea, in­­trigu­ing sug­­ges­­tion of where the fore­­world saga could go, but lazy, lazy, lazy.
