    Throughout this very lengthy, but absolutely intriguing novel, I couldn t figure out why this book had been banned in Rome Sure, it deals with Innocent XI whom it took centuries to finally get beatified, and sure, despite the consistency of historians of the Papacy in depicting him as a simple, humble, saintly figure, he obviously had a few flaws After 500 or so pages, I just couldn t figure out why it d been banned Untile Addendum, the Notes, the other historical documents at the end of the boo [...]

    I bought Imprimatur by Rita Monaldi and Francesco Sorti a while back, but totally forgot about it I discovered and read it last month I wouldn t go so far as calling it a page turner but it was an interesting book to read The fact that the authors did a lot of reasearch before publishing this novel was obvious but they could have done a better job presenting their finds Long story short, it is an enjoyable read but it lacks dept What Monaldi Sorti wrote is not a bad book, but in opinion it is no [...]

    This book was apparently popular in Europe Its initial boycotting in Italy no doubt added to its popularity Set in Rome in the late seventeenth century it deals with the events of nine days in that city, when a number of strangers are quarantined in an Inn The motley group potentially holds spies, maybe assassins, etc, and as the events unfold there is than an innuendo that the Church was very much involved in shady and undercover political operations.As I am very much aware that the darker asp [...]

    It was hard to read this book Pages would be devoted to obscure history lessons and conjecture, as if the authors had returned from the library determined to show off everything they ve read.While there is a detective type story at the heart of the book, it is simply surrounded by too much other stuff junk to make for an enjoyable read.Perhaps this book would only be enjoyable for those that truly believe the Church can do no wrong Then, the allegations contained within might make for a stimula [...]


    L"amaca di Euterpe

    Libro scritto in modo banale, con gran sfoggio di erudizione da sempre la sensazione che dica Guardatemi, abbiamo studiato un sacco spesso messa a caso rompendo il ritmo Un romanzo storico difficile da costruire non tanto o non solo per la trama, ma per rendere viva l ambientazione scelta, e non uno stucchevole manuale di Storia poco approfondito Fino all ultimo non ho compreso il grande scandalo su questo libro, n ricordavo le polemiche quelle sul Codice da Vinci me le ricordo tutte invece , n [...]

    This was a difficult book to rate And it wasn t an easy book to read, either If you re all for fast paced action, this isn t for you This unfolds slowly, with a great deal of mystery, and a great deal of attention to historical detail I read it slowly, but I enjoyed reading it Up until the last 100 pages or so, that is Since the book is huge, a 100 pages from the end is practically nothing But the thing is that, by that point, I was already tad disappointed The mystery for me had been solved, an [...]

    The first book of the series by Monaldi and Sorti has an interesting publishing history as it was not appreciated by the Catholic church in Italy An engaging mystery, and as with Secretum, the characters actually existed, with the exception of the narrator in the two books so far published A tight close read which leads one into interesting, historical spaces in Rome and a study into the politics of the 17th century preceding the second book It is not a fast read, or you will miss something impo [...]

    Not worth losing time for that one, I have been trying to finish it but it s so boring I can t stand it any You might think this has the same style as the Da Vinci code but it s not, it s just a book made by some historians who think they can write a novel by just spitting out all their knowledge of the middle age


    Ana Petrina

    That is what I call a mystery novel A great mix of history, facts, nuanced characters, murder and betrayal, truth and lies I was amused the whole time, I learned a great deal on history of France and the catholic church and I could almost smell the sewers and catacombs of old Rome I can t wait to read the other two books in the series

    De plot is goed, erg goed zelfs Maar de hele uitwerking vind ik nogal langdradig Vooral die nogal vergezochte inleiding en vooral het veel te uitgebreide addendum en noten die je wel moet lezen om het geheel te begrijpen Ik snap de bedoeling van de schrijvers wel maar het maakte me niet enthousiast om verder te lezen dit was dan ook al de 3de keer dat ik er aan begon.De omschrijvingen van de samenstelling van medicijnen of de gerechten die het knechtje klaar maakt en die soms meer dan een bladzi [...]

    Libro straordinario, narrazione fluente e coinvolgente, molto curata e raffinata.Una serie di incredibili intrighi e dubbi storicamente basati che intrecciano le vicende di un papa a cui questo libro ha fatto perdere l opportunit di essere canonizzato Triller, intrighi, spie, che si snodano nei sotterranei della Roma travolta dalla peste mentre gli ottomani stanno per conquistare l Europa alle porte di Vienna.Peccato che sia stato boicottato in Italia e che gli autori, coniugi italiani cattolici [...]

    Nothing so delightful as a eunuch on adventure Atto Melani in Imprimatur, posted to Disruptive DissertationI am a big fan of the Latinate vocabulary and word play, especially given the challenge of translation from the original Italian into English Bravo.

    Na een berichtje van Robert, dat het cadeau bij de maand van het spannende boek in 2011 wordt geschreven door het echtpaar Monaldi en Sorti, ben ik eens op onderzoek gegaan naar dit echtpaar, want ze waren bij mij geheel onbekend In de pers werd hun eerste boek vergeleken met De naam van de roos van Umberto Eco en kreeg vier sterren in de Detective en Thrillergids van de VN, dus redenen genoeg voor dit boek om op mijn nog te lezen lijstje terecht te komen Robert was erg te spreken over dit boek, [...]

    Un gruppo di uomini e una donna si trovano chiusi in una locanda romana nel settembre 1683 a causa di un sospetto caso di peste In quei giorni si attende l esito della battaglia di Vienna contro i Turchi.Da questo inizio prende vita un romanzo avvincente, definibile come una storia di spionaggio che coinvolge i principali protagonisti dell epoca Papa Innocenzo XI, Luigi XIV, Guglielmo d Orange, l imperatore Leopoldo I.Gli autori utilizzano a mani basse artifici letterari esplicitamente ripresi d [...]

    I primi tre quarti di questo libro, pi che un romanzo storico, sono un saggio romanzato, il resto solo un saggio o libro inchiesta.Scopo del libro illustrare la tesi che il papa Odescalchi Innocenzo XI, finanzi , con un prestito ad usura, l invasione dell Inghilterra, allora retta da un Re cattolico, da parte di Guglielmo d Orange, protestante, e la conseguente fine del cattolicesimo in Inghilterra.La parte romanzata si legge, ma non molto avvincente, ma piuttosto claustrofobica, in quanto si sv [...]

    About halfway through I asked myself if I was actually enjoying this book, which should be a red flag normally, but I did The denouement if that s the word was fantastic and I felt that frenzy to read quicker than my eyes could manage.The detail could be overwhelming if I was reading while travelling or late at night, but I appreciate the great effort that went into it truly amazing The book is around 500 pages over 9 days and nights, but it doesn t drag as I expected it would I did read it over [...]

    Non basta una censura per avere qualit Se vero il complotto italiano per nascondere e ostracizzare questo libro, non ne capisco il motivo si tratta di un romanzo storico abbastanza godibile per chi ama il genere, anche se finisce con il fiato corto e con uno stile di scrittura poco agile e per nulla notevole A parte qualche buona idea la voce narrante affidata ad un garzone pigmeo, le vicende storiche affascinanti, l esplorazione di una Roma sotterranea , il libro non riesce ad emergere da molta [...]
