5.0 out of 5 stars Best zombie book EVER., October 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are many reasons to love this book. First of all, it's utterly realistic. As a long time zombie books aficionado, I've found all classes of undead literature. I've enjoyed many books, but very few gave me the sense of wonder and down-to-earth feelings that I've got reading Manel Loureiro's Apocalypse Z. Also, the Nameless Lawyer is such an incredible achievement that, as a writer myself, made me jealous of Loureiro in every page. He is witty, he is clever, he is brave, he is a survivor. But above it all, the Nameless Lawyer is a real human being, and every one of us readers can feel his pain, his suffering, his angst. He takes care of his cat in the midst of the end of the world, for G*d's sake! You'll root for him till the very end of the book, which will let you desperately crying for more. Good news, my friend: there are two more books on the way, and are as good, realistic and fresh as this one.

PD: Luculus the Cat is the best character in an horror book ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A natural born storyteller at his best, June 19, 2007
This review is from: The Lady in Blue (Hardcover)
Javier Sierra, New York Times bestselling author with "The secret supper" comes again with a story about Sister María Jesús de Ágreda, who appeared more than 500 times to the Jumano Indians of New Mexico and converted them to Christianity--without ever leaving her monastery in Spain. (The Inquisition suspected her of witchcraft.)

This character driven thriller hurls itself into the reader's consciousness at break-neck speed, and before the reader realizes it, the book holds the reader in its thrall: hook, line, and sinker. For those readers who love historical detail and accuracy in description, this is definitely a fascinating book that will hold their interest. The book is written in clear, effortless prose, which makes the 'hardest' sci-fi details surprisingly easy to understand.

'The Lady in Blue' delivers everything a reader would want in a thriller - and more. Perfect for vacation or weekend reading, this 352 page novel will keep readers entertained from start to finish.
