      Meni je ovo super! Malo krimić, pa malo crkvenih tajni iz prošlosti, a uz sve skupa politika i Area 51. Volim ovakve knjige a la' Dan Brown. Krećem sa sljedećom iz serijala.

      Ovako priča prati tri vremenska toka: 777g, 1947g i 2009g. Ona koja seže daleko u prošlost mi je bila i najzanimljivija dok ova koja prati sadašnjost nekako najslabija. Priča kao priča jeste interesantna i donekle te vuče da što pre iščitaš kraj ali generalno realizacija je dosta slaba. Sve je dosta plitko, sterilno (pogotovo kad su likovi upitanju) ali zbog same priče može se preći i preko toga. Moja osnovna zamerka je što nikako nije objašnjeno zbog čega se sve to desilo, šta [...]

      Excellent! Those who haven't read it yet have a treat in store for them. This book lives up to its promotion and then some.I was not too sure when I started if I was going to like it (slightly over-use of the F-word and a particular scene that was unsettling violence personally). But that all quickly fades into the background as the well-written story takes off.I so don't want to ruin this masterfully written story for anyone else but if you like suspense, I heartily recommend Secret of the Seve [...]

      Libro pessimo, sotto tanti punti di vista. Tralasciando il fatto che e' sessista, omofobo, razzista e con una narrazione piatta quanto il tavoliere delle puglie quello che più mi ha infastidito e' l'errore macroscopico nella trama. L'autore e i suoi editori non si sono dati la pena di fare un banale calcolo matematico che verificasse l'accuratezza dei numeri. Si parla di 700.000 libri, 200 miliardi di nomi, scritti in 450 anni da decine di ammanuensi. Non ci vuole il più volte citato pitagora [...]

      Sapete, in questi anni ho visto più volte sugli scaffali delle librerie e online i libri di Glenn Cooper, le trame misteriose mi hanno sempre incuriosita, eppure non sono mai riuscita a convincermi a leggerli. Ho trovato "La biblioteca dei morti" in scambio e ho deciso di provarci, perchè no?Una serie di strani omicidi, preannunciati da cartoline con sopra scritti nome e date della morte delle vittime, stanno allarmando le forze di polizia di New York che non riescono a spiegarsi quali possano [...]

      Oh good lord, can you say cliched? There were some interesting and occasionally chilling moments in this book but they were few and far between. The main character was appallingly misogynistic - he's only attracted to the main love interest when she's lost weight and basically changed her personality. The main antagonist was a far more believable and sympathetic character than the hero whose characterisation kept this novel at severely third level thriller.The basic premise was interesting enoug [...]

    8. Felicity on said:

      This book was a major disappointment. I remember commenting at page 80 that it seemed fairly predictable and nothing much happened beyond that point. So basically there's this serial killer who sends postcards to his victims with a date and a coffin. They die on the date. Police are stumped and yet we, as the readers, know that there is a huge library full of the birth and death dates for everyone. It's obvious what's happening. Duh!Major conspiracy, government coverupblah blah blah.The frustrat [...]

      (review in english below)Soube-me mesmo bem ler esta história!Um mistério medieval à mistura com a Área 51 e um assassino em série, embrulhados numa escrita agradável e com um bom ritmo.Gostei dos personagens e da forma como a história está contada, como tudo começa a fazer sentido bem antes do final, mas sem nunca perder o interesse.Ao princípio os saltos cronológicos são um pouco confusos mas depois tudo vai encaixando mais facilmente e difícil é parar de ler.Recomendado a fãs d [...]

      Mi aspettavo molto ma molto di più, visto tutto l'entusiasmo con cui si sente parlare di questo libro. Di solito diffido dai best seller, ma incuriosita l'ho preso in prestito in biblioteca. Meno male che non l'ho comprato! Che dire, sicuramente l'idea è originale, ma lo svolgimento distrugge ogni suspance. Non so, magari Cooper non lo ha immaginato come un giallo, ma io mi aspettavo, visto l'inizio, un po' più di attesa. A un quarto di libro già si capisce cosa sta succedendo e l'idea dell' [...]

      «Proprio così», disse Atwood, battendo la mano sul tavolo. «Usiamo un metodo scientifico per dimostrare che la scienza è una sciocchezza.»Bello bello bello! Diverso dai soliti thriller dai quali vengono tratti quei noiosi e inverosimili film stereotipati (anche se, diciamolo, non è che io legga tanti thriller), eppure mantiene sempre quel tocco di classicità che piace cogliere in un bel romanzo. Le prime settanta pagine circa, sono quasi insopportabili, la confusione tra le varie storie [...]

      Veramente affascinante, l'idea della biblioteca è qualcosa di fantastico.

      What a nice story! I definitely want more. Glenn Cooper rocks!

    14. Ana Goulart on said:

      Gostei da história algo fantástica contada neste livro. A narrativa, que abrange 3 épocas, está bem encadeada e coloca-nos diante de questões de fundo:livre arbítrio ou destino? Como seria o mundo se todos conhecessemos a data da nossa morte?

      The main character is an FBI agent expert in serial killers. He is tall, has a square jaw, a former wife and a neglected daughter.Jaw has a drinking problem and is not very disciplined.Jaw has been assigned the case of the Doomsday killer, coupled with a young female partner.His partner is a pain in the ass, but (you guess), very slowly they come to a sort of complicity. Obviously the two of them fall in love, obviously Jaw overcomes his drinking problem, obviously he makes it up with his neglec [...]

      LIBRARY OF THE DEAD by GLENN COOPERWhilst on a recent holiday with friends in a rental property in the Dordogne region of France; where I had gone to soak up the history and archaeology of the area – particularly the spectacular examples of Cave art; I was loaned a copy of “ Library Of The Dead “. Being a voracious reader of varied interests I was delighted to receive this unexpected windfall – as I had, in my usual disorganised way, omitted to pack any books to read. A glance at the pr [...]

      No sé muy bien qué decir de este libro. Supongo que la idea de la trama es novedosa y habría sido emocionante, un gran misterio de no haber sido porque, bueno, te lo descubren en la contraportada.Pero, en serio, ¿en qué estaban pensado? Vaya basura de resumen.Por otro lado, creo que en libro descubren demasiado pronto el pastel, tanto cambiar de un año a otro en los capítulos hace que pierda interés, en mi opinión vayaSi al menos hubiesen esperado un poco para poner la parte de Vectis h [...]

      Stopped at the local Borders for a “beach read” and found this book in the “bargain” section. What a find! The story jumps from present day to early days (starting at 777) to post WWII as it reveals a library of sorts discovered on an island owned by England. Since England had enough on their plate to recoup after the War, they contact President Truman. The story opens with a class reunion of four college roommates, one currently an FBI agent. Will Piper is one of the best hunters of ser [...]

    20. César Caracuel on said:

      Un poco mareante el desarrollo de la historia con los contínuos saltos temporales, habiendo 3 tramas principales. Al final todo cuadra y se comprende la existencia de las mismas. La historia es muy interesante, sobre el conocimiento de nuestra fecha de muerte exacta, y te hace pensar cómo sería la humanidad en el caso de que no fuera ficción, cómo reaccionaría la población mundial. Lo que quizás sobra es alguna pequeña muestra de que cuidar el lenguaje en la traducción es mejorable.

      Esta é realmente uma biblioteca que não gostaria de conhecer! A trama desenrola-se em três épocas diferentes, o séc. XI, em 1947 e nos nossos dias onde 9 pessoas com nada a ligá-las recebem um postal do "Sentenciador" com a data das suas mortes que acontecem todas de maneira diferentes. A procura do assassino está o agente do FBI Will Piper, um quarentão alcoólico e desencantado da vida. O passo da história é rápido e constente e bastante interessante.O facto de Will ser um machista [...]

      Les coups de cœurs s'enchainent subitement !A priori ce roman avait déjà tout pour me plaire mais là on dépasse les limite de l'exaltation.Les mots me manquent car mon vocabulaire se réduit à mesure que la température monte, je serai donc brève.On est rapidement happé par l'histoire, d'autant plus que trois époques sont évoquées, et qu'on ne fait le lien entre elles que très progressivement. Les personnages de Will (alcoolique et séducteur) et de Nancy (jeune agent qui ne demande [...]

      Very, very interesting book with a refreshingly original idea. Library of the Dead starts off as your usual serial homicide story, seemingly unsolvable, until you find out what really happens. You'll never be able to guess. This is a very refreshing alternative to the usual religious-conspiracy-secrets genre. Still finds its roots in some ancient brotherhood that just has to be related to Christianity, but it's not what you think. This book is full of surprises that will keep you turning page af [...]

      This was not the story I was expecting. But it was a pleasant surprise. At first it seemed like there were three or four completely unconnected stories going on, murders in present day New York, dodgy goings on in England just after WWII, strange monks in AD777. None of them seemed to have any link. And there was no mention of a library!! Most confusing. However it does all come together and provides some suspense as the FBI agent in charge of the murder investigation tries to workout what is go [...]
