Publisher's Summary

Con más de tres millones de ejemplares vendidos, El último Catón, ahora en audio libro, se ha convertido en la novela más relevante de Matilde Asensi y hasta el momento, sin duda, en una de las obras de referencia de la narrativa española. Desde el archivo secreto de la ciudad del Vaticano, la hermana Ottavia Salina, paleógrafa de prestigio internacional, se enfrenta a un extraño enigma: descifrar los tatuajes aparecidos en el cadáver de un etíope. Con la ayuda de un capitán de la guardia suiza y un arqueólogo de Alejandría, Ottavia tendrá que descubrir quién está detrás del robo de las reliquias de la Vera Cruz, la cruz de Cristo, en las iglesias de todo el mundo. Siete pruebas basadas en el purgatorio de la Divina comedia de Dante Alighieri tienen las llaves para abrir las puertas. La expiación de los siete pecados capitales se realizará en las siete ciudades que ostentan la fama de practicarlos: Roma por su soberbia, Rávena por su envidia, Jerusalén por su ira, Atenas por su pereza, Constantinopla por su avaricia, Alejandría por su gula, y Antioquía por su lujuria.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    Story
    "Pésimamente mal escrito y la narración deplorable"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    No conocía a la autora, por lo que me dejé llevar por la buena crítica. La historia podría haber sido desarrollada mejor, pero a la autora le faltó vocabulario y creatividad para ir más allá de descripciones interminables de diversos lugares y de situaciones no muy interesantes por una monja neurótica y quejosa.


    Has El último Catón turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Definitivamente my debut y despedida con Matilde Asensi y con Eva Andres.


    What didn’t you like about Eva Andres’s performance?

    Todo. Su timbre de voz, el tono plañidero, y el ritmo de lectura que parece de maestra de primaria del siglo pasado.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from El último Catón?

    ¿Donde comenzar?

    "Una novela bastante interesante"

    Es una novela que arranca muy despacio pero que poco a poco atrae al lector, en este caso oyente, con más intensidad.
    Lamentablemente, su final no tiene ninguna sorpresa ni emoción.

    Story
    "Really interesting and well researched."
    What made the experience of listening to El último Catón the most enjoyable?

    The way it uses Dante's Divine Comedy (much better and before Dawn Brown) and real historic facts and location to create an amazing thriller.


    What other book might you compare El último Catón to and why?

    Dan Brown's DaVinci Code because of all the biblical and pagan symbolism and the really well though out plot.


    What does Eva Andres bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a great reader. Still I think it would be a good Idea to use Spanish (from Spain) narrators for Spanish Authors. South American narrators are great, but in some book set in Spain, is very hard to believe the character is Spanish (as in the book) or Italian when the narrator speaks with a south american accent. I think a narrator like Alba Sola (The lost Angle, Javier Sierra) would be more appropriate. Having said that, I did enjoy Eva Andres reading the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, there is a lot of information, facts, locations....Its 17 hours long and needs to be read in stages.


    Any additional comments?

    The second part of this book is out. Please can we have an audible version?.

    Although I enjoy audiobooks both in English and Spanish. My main interest is to encourage the publication of audiobooks in Spanish.

    "El Shangrila Cristiano"

    Excelente novela en el manejo del suspenso y paralelismo con el Purgatorio de la Divina Comedia de Dante.

    La parte de las pruebas iniciáticas paralelas al purgatorio de Dante es electrizante.

    Al igual que en la Divina Comedia cuando se supera el purgatorio para llegar al “paraíso” ya no mantiene el suspenso original, pero bueno, creo que no hay más remedio para este tipo de historias.

    La narración es aceptable.

    "Buen relato de aventuras"

    Muy buen libro para aquellos que disfrutan de relatos de detectives dentro del contexto religioso (Código DaVinci, Ángeles y Demonios). Llega a ser un poco repetitivo en cuanto a las dinámicas de los personajes, pero deseas terminarlo en general.

    "Great for Language Comprehension Practice"

    I like to listen to books in other languages for language practice.

    This works best if it is a book that I have already listened to/read in English,
    as then the material is more familiar.

    For new languages, I will often try to listen to a book in parallel:
    say, 15 minutes of English, then 15 minutes of the other languages, etc.
    As of yet, there is a fairly limited selection of foreign language audiobooks available in the U.S. store, and an even smaller selection that are available in both English and a variety of other languages.

    (And, for some reason, the Spanish ones seem often to be abridged, which makes them much less useful for this type of "rosetta stone" parallel listening practice.)

    But it is slowly getting better.

    Congratulations to Audible for slowly increasing its foreign language material,
    and here is hoping that it will continue to do so.

    And perhaps some books in Mandarin and Arabic also?
