    Books that can make me cry have a special place in my heart You ll hate the protagonist sometimes but you ll also feel sorry for him and would like to protect him And that s true for many of the characters It is a sad book but beautiful.The kinds that get etched into your memory and haunt you at nights.

    I think Zimler is a great writer, though I don t think this book matches up against the Last Kabbalist, Warsaw Anagrams or the Seventh Gate This is perhaps the most depressing book I have ever read, and what the Inquisition does to the narrator is almost unbearable Still, the writing is very strong, and it is a page turner.

    So far, the best written fictional story I ve come across that s set in 16th century colonial Goa The reason I ve only given it a 3 star rating is that I struggled at times to keep reading because the language slowed me down.

    César Lasso
    My rating 3.5 stars.The book manages to keep intrigue and shows how the inquisitorial system and society might have broken a life, and the protagonist s reaction to that reality.

    Not as good as The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon, but still really interesting to learn about the Inquisition in India.

    One of the best books I ever read Caught my attention from the first to tle last page.

    For a book set in 16th century India the writing style was far too modern.

    Consider it a childhood perversion of mine that has lived on into my adulthood, but I have always been far interested in so called villains in stories than in heroes Ravan has always tickled my fancy than Ram, and I d rather spend an evening in conversation with Iago than Othello So this story appeals to me simply by telling the tale of how an innocent young man turns his hand to cruelty In the strictest sense though, Ti is Edmond Dantes than Patrick Bateman, and the story takes an inordinate [...]

    I came to this novel after reading the author s excellent Warsaw Anagrams and sadly I was a bit disappointed I did learn quite a lot about 16th Century Goa, India and the Portuguese Roman Catholic Inquisition that was used to suppress all other local faiths, but it was at times very slow I also felt that the character of Tiago often seemed somewhat 20th Century in his expressed views and philosophy However, I did greatly enjoy it in parts, just not throughout and certainly not as much as his lat [...]

    I had no idea what the Inquisition was up to in Goa and this book was a real eye opener Similar to Othello in many ways, although Zimler does mention he s drawn comparisons.The subject is handled sensitively and the reader s attention is held by the fast pace A recommended read for anyone interested in this period.

    Miranda
    is the first book richard I ve ever read and i enjoy a lot Was difficult to stop reading it, because we always want to read a little bit .The description is fabulous, brings us In india, the smells, the heat, the spicy meals, and the way of being of its habitants I recommend DGood reads for everyone

    Sanjay
    A novel against the backdrop of the Portuguese Inquisition in 16th century Goa sounds fascinating Unfortunately, in Zimler s hands, what emerges is a ponderous and often overly serious work that shifts gear suddenly in the last section to become a faster paced tale of machinations and murder, a la Othello Sad.

    Rosa Barroco
    It takes a full book to figure out who are the good and the bad ones until we find out there are no good or bad ones I would say just like in the life of most of us Fantastic story Amazingly well written Sometimes really heavy to read I therefore alternated it a very easy reading book.Extremely sad It really brook my heart and still I could not stop reading.

    Paula Leal de matos
    A tragedy set in Goa in the time of the inquisition Exquisitely told, it transported me to India, to its peoples, smells, foods, atmosphere,cultures and religions I felt the emotions, fears, love and the hate of the main characters Magnificent

    Sónia
    Gostei mesmo muito mais 4.5 do que 4.

    Madeline
    Better than the second in the trilogy Visits a descendant of the first protagonist in Goa caught up in the inquistion on the Indian continent

    giselle r fonseca
    Na sequencia do Richard Zimmler sobre a fam lia Zarco esse n o foi o melhor livro, mas ainda assim, vale a leitura Entretanto, O ltimo cabalista de Lisboa ainda o ganhador.

    Bookshelf
    Book with the historical background of the Portuguese inquisition in Goa regarded as the worst inquisition in historyot was ok, but the ending was loosely executed.

    good
