      Πραγματολογικά στοιχεία σε πλήρη κοινοτοπία και ζωηρά επιφανειακή χρήση. Δεν θα πω κάτι για την πλοκή του βιβλίου, καλύπτεται στην άψογη περιγραφή του οπισθόφυλλου με μεγάλη επιτυχία. Αν προσπαθήσω να πω κάτι περισσότερο θα προβώ σε μη πρέπουσες Προοικονομίες. Τέχνη, ιστο [...]

      Ένας αντικέρ, μια συντηρήτρια έργων τέχνης και ένα ιδιόρρυθμος σκακιστής ψάχνουν την λύση πίσω από μια σκακιστική παρτίδα ενός Φλαμανδικού πίνακα. Όσο όμως ξετυλίγουν τo κουβάρι του μεσαιωνικού πίνακα, μπλέκονται και στα πόδια ενός κατά συρροή δολοφόνου ο οποίος φαίνεται [...]

      I wanted so badly to love this book.The simplest way to describe it is the novelisation of Douglas Hofstadter's opus, "Godel, Escher, Bach." In fact, it is impossible to believe that Perez-Reverte had finished G.E.B. more than ten minutes before furiously scribing "The Flanders Panel."I wanted to love it because I love books based on puzzles and logic, and GEB may be one of my favorite books of all time.But the novel is just so weak. The characters (caricatures?) were flat and absurd - how many [...]

      Εξαίσιο. Η σχεδόν αστυνομική πλοκή σε συνδυασμό, η χαρακτηριστική γραφή του συγγραφέα, η σχέση που αναπτύσσεται μεταξύ των ηρώων, όλα συντείνουν στην δημιουργία μιας σπάνιας αναγνωστικής εμπειρίας.

      Well that was just as good as I remembered. Everything I said below still holds true. The tale may have felt a bit more heavy handed this time, but I think that's only because I knew who the murderer was and as Sherlock Holmes says, "I only saw it because I knew what I was looking for." It didn't diminish the pleasure of the experience.This re-read had me focusing a lot more on characterization since I didn't have to be obsessively caught up in the mystery. What is beautifully done here is showi [...]

      My friend Cathy (also a chessplayer) told me I had to read this, and she was indeed right. I couldn't put it down, and finished it in about a day. It's well, what is it? I read it as a kind of postmodernist reimagining of Alice Through The Looking-Glass. Other books I immediately thought of were The Name of the Rose, Gödel, Escher, Bach and Luzhin's Defense. Formally, it's a very stylized murder mystery. Julia, the sexy but childlike Alice figure, is a Madrid art restorer. She receives an unusu [...]

      Theo cảm nhận của riêng tôi, tác phẩm này còn hay hơn cả "Câu lạc bộ Dumas" - cuốn tiểu thuyết đã làm nên tên tuổi của tác giả người Tây Ban Nha Arturo Pérez-Reverte. Không có hai cốt truyện chính chạy song song nhau, không có những bức tranh khắc gỗ mang dáng dấp hình ảnh những lá bài tarot đầy ám ảnh, “Bí ẩn quân hậu đen” trung thành với một cốt truyện chính duy nhất, đi sâu vào thế giớ [...]

      I got this as a birthday present and took it with me on our Thanksgiving trip. I wish I had taken the Manhattan phone book instead. It would have had a lot more interesting characters and none of them would be such implausible things as the characters of this novel. The whole structure is so contrived it ultimately collapses under its own weight. The book is built around a convoluted metaphor like "art is chess is life is art," but the harder the author works at it, the more tenuous it becomes. [...]

      I have read this book almost 16 years ago, but I still remember how fascinated I was after.For me, back in the '90-'00s, if you haven't read a book of Mr Reverte, couldn't have a clue about his writing skills!I recommend this one, to anyone who adores art and mystery, especially if they are bond so well in a book

      Ακόμα ένα εξαιρετικό βιβλίο του Ρεβέρτε,που συμπληρώνει το top 3 μου από βιβλία του.Αν "Η λέσχη Δουμάς" είναι ένα βιβλίο που θα σύστηνα στους βιβλιόφιλους,αυτό εδώ θα το σύστηνα στους λάτρεις της τέχνης και του σκακιού.Ο Ρεβέρτε αναμειγνύει με θαυμαστό τρόπο το παρελθόν και το [...]

      Đây là một tác phẩm quá đỗi xuất sắc, đến mức mình không thể chê gì at all. Đây là một quyển trinh thám Tây Ban Nha đúng nghĩa - đầy kịch tính, hồi hộp, cuốn hút mà quyến rũ lãng mạn cực kì. Tác giả bắt đầu cả quyển trinh thám bằng tiền đề hội hoạ: thậm chí ông sáng tạo ra cả một họa sĩ thời phục hưng, với tiểu sử và trường phái, phong cách y như thật làm cả thế giới bà [...]

      This disappointed me, especially since it came so highly recommended. I just couldn't buy into it though. The plot was absurd and unbelievable in numerous places. The characters lacked common sense. Let's seemeone is trying to kill meI think I'll go out late at night by myself and cruise around the city, hail taxis, go to a nice restaurant, and then head back to my apartment for a quiet night by myself where the killer just so happens to know I live. That kind of crap really grated on me, but I [...]

      Ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου βιβλία του Ρεβέρτε! Πολύ καλή γραφή και μετάφραση. Πολύ έξυπνη ιστορία.

    14. Harold on said:

      excellent! I love this blend of top shelf entertainment, intrigue and mystery which at the same time informs the reader of the mores of the Art World, the in and outs of restoring paintings, and, most prominently, the game of chess. As mediocre a player as I am, I was still able to follow the descriptions and logic of the moves and the use of a 500 year old chess game that is relevant to the mystery unfolding before us is just flat-out clever.Reverte also wrote The Club Dumas, another book that [...]

      A tábua de Flandres é um romance de intriga do início ao fim. Não só as personagens da história actual entram no jogo mas também aqueles que inspiraram o pintor flamengo, Pieter Van Huys, a pintar o quadro conhecido por A partida de Xadrez*.Gostei do livro mas a parte relativa ao xadrez é um pouco chata - principalmente para quem não percebe do jogo.Pieter Van Huys, A partida de xadrez* Tentei descobrir se esta obra existe mas não consegui nenhuma informação credível que aponte ness [...]

      I loved it! This was a recommendation based on my love of The Eight and it was dead on. The novel is a murder mystery played out as a game of chess on many levels linking the mysteries of the past to those of the present centered around a fifteenth century painting, aptly titled, The Game of Chess. Unlike The Eight, the story takes place in one time and city, though there is an element of magical realism as Julia gets so lost in her imaginings of the past that the painting pulls her in. Like Th [...]

      The book's main theme is a painting by Peter van Huys. Julia is restoring paintings and a painting representing a chess game between the Duke of Flanders and his knight is her current task. While running her tests she discovers a hidden message under the tablecloth saying: Who killed the knight? So Julia starts trying to solve the mystery of a murder that took place centuries ago. But murders start taking place around Julia and then the chess game becomes a death threat. Although the book starte [...]

      Adiei, e adiei a leitura deste livro por receio, afinal foi infundado, pois gostei muito de "A Tábua de Flandres". Os dois ou três livros que já li de Arturo Pérez-Reverte não foram satisfatórios, mas a sinopse deste agradou-me e resolvi tentar uma vez mais e em boa a hora o fiz!

      Actually it is 3,5/5 stars but I didn't have the heart to put only 3 stars in this book!

      C'est le deuxième roman de cet auteur que je lis et j'apprécie tout autant ! Il mène le suspens d'une main de maître et nous plonge dans cette partie d'échec à taille réelle captivante.

    22. Mark Hebwood on said:

      Overall, I liked this fine. Characters had real depth, were idiosyncratic, querky, troubled, colourful, and well-developed. The plot was complex, and Arturo managed to create an unusual whodunit by peppering his detective story with elements from the arcane worlds of reverse-chess and philosophy of perception. Beginning to sound a little bit weird? Yes that is also what I thought. Sure, Arturo differentiates himself from the pack by writing something I might call a "literary thriller". But I cou [...]

      "I would say that chess has more to do with the art of murder than it does with the art of war.” The Flanders Panel is the picture of Chess in its truest form.Every piece is a character. Every move is an influence. To win it, you must cross death. “Amazing,” he murmured.There is no better word to describe it. The enigma itself may not be that surprising, but the steps undertaken to manipulate, and likewise, to uncover it was engaging------------------ooo--------------------ooo------------- [...]

      Como a sinopse refere, uma jovem restauradora de obras de arte, descobre uma inscrição oculta na pintura em que se encontra a trabalhar. Um quadro que retracta uma partida de xadrez disputada entre duas personagens, sendo que foi pintado dois anos após o assassinato de uma delas.A partir do momento em que este facto, bem como a inscrição misteriosa se tornam perceptíveis, um desencadear de situações e de acontecimentos, transformam a vida pacata de Júlia (a restauradora) num reboliço i [...]

      I had high hopes with this one. Alas!Flanders Panel opened up brilliantly and hooked me right in. Nonetheless, what started with arts and history culminates into a mundane anti-climax (You don’t see such a miserable finale often). Pathetic!No spoilers here, but I can’t help sharing a particularly foolish, absurd and downright annoying inference from such a sublime and graceful game of Chess. Hold your breaths and read this conversation between two characters:“The mathematical aspect of che [...]

    26. Eric on said:

      Like other Pérez-Reverte books, this one initially consumed me. All the elements of his novels are present: interesting and complex characters, a modern mystery that plays out against a historical backdrop, in-depth descriptions that bring to life arcane subjects - in Club Dumas the antique book trade, in Fencing Master fencing, in this book, chess. Unlike other Pérez-Reverte books, however, this one lost me in the last quarter when the mystery was resolved. I found the revelation of who and w [...]

    27. Snoozie Suzie on said:

      I really enjoyed this to start, but by the end I was disappointed. What didn't bother me at the beginning did in the end as it was kind of unfinished due to lack of character involvement/development which left it all hanging a bit and so unsatisfactory. The chess side of things was very clever, but got a bit overwhelming toward the end I felt. But a clever alternative view of a murder mystery. In a way it reminds me of a Nancy Drew mystery as they often revolved around objects.

    28. Remo on said:

      Con este libro, me aficioné definitivamente a Reverte, de quien tan solo había leído por aquel entonces El húsar y la sombra del águila. Acusan a Reverte de muchas cosas al escribir, pero lo cierto es que yo disfruto como un enano leyéndole (otras novelas más modernas han dejado de gustarme, como la del pintor de batallas o el francotirador paciente, pero es un estilo distinto). Novela muy entretenida y con mucha enjundia histórica y cultureta. Absolutamente recomendable.

    29. Labijose on said:

      Una de las primeras novelas del gran Pérez-Reverte. Una joven restauradora de arte, a cuyas manos llega un cuadro del Renacimiento donde se esconde un gran secreto. A partir de ahí teje una novela de aventuras y acción, que sin estar ni mucho menos entre sus mejores obras, se lee con interés. El tejer la trama como una partida de ajedrez le da un toque de originalidad, y cada movimiento de la partida da lugar a un acontecimiento en la narración. Recomendable.

      Ajedrez retrospectivo que llega a su clímax con J.S Bach sonando de fondo. Una obra de arte que data del S. XV con una inscripción oculta. Una restauradora, un aficionado al ajedrez y un coleccionista de antigüedades se ven envueltos en un juego que los convierte en piezas claves.
