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.

Muy Buen libro.
Te tiene atenta y curiosa toda la lectura hasta el final. A veces los detalles extremos cansan.

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?.

Tarde en engancharme

.... demasiada información, pruebas, datos. Intenté escucharlo dos veces y la segunda lo conseguí. En el capítulo 9 logré metermeen la historia.Y aunque sigo prefiriendo Tierra firme. me gustó la historia y eso que no puedo con Dante y su Divina Comedia .
