    Que dire d?un tel roman ? Je suis perplexe. La chose est trs bien crite, rondement mene, les personnages sont intressants bien que pas assez approfondis mon got, et les lments fantastiques sont aussi troublants que disparates. Le contexte historique est plutt ori...

    Gave up on page 91 because nothing has happened since the prologue. I'm not kidding when I say the description is the most interesting part of this book. I have over 700 books on my to-read shelf, so I'm going to try one of them instead. ...

    I am not sure what, exactly, were we supposed to be reading. A mish mash of useless phrases and no focus. I am at a loss to understand how this book won any "coveted prize" Without a doubt, the worst book that I ever hope to come across. ...

    First, a very wordy and difficult to understand intro or preface. Then a long, wordy and uninteresting run up to the discovery of the victims. The police are then shown at the crime scene with no introduction to them. I just found the whole swathe of writing awkward to read and fathom....

    Una histria mal forjada: dues o tres trames que es barregen per no fan ms que confondre el lector; uns personatges mal girbats, sense acabar de definir (llevat d'un o dos, que no sn els protagonistes, per); llargues tirallongues de discurs histric que no porten enlloc... E...

    La veritat s que em sorprn la baixa puntuaci que t aquest llibre a Goodreads. Potser es tracta d'una promoci errnia de les traduccions a altres llenges, ja que sembla que la promocionen com una histria de vampirs. I evidentment no es tracta d'aix. A mi m'ha agradat mo...

    Fajny pomys? opowiedzenia o wojnie domowej w Barcelonie w formie gotyckiego krymina?u wampirycznego zapowiada? si? ?wietnie - ale niestety nie za du?o z tego wysz?o. Konstrukcja raczej kuleje, wampiryzm okazuje si? w gruncie rzeczy pretekstowy i ma?o istotny, tekst przez dwie?...

    I found this book disappointing. And it's not uncommon, when a book in translation turns out to be a disappointment, to blame the translators. However, in this case, I think the mother-daughter team of Martha Tennent and Maruxa Rellao did an impeccable job. In fact, the prose they pr...

    Denne spanske roman ladet til at have fet en lidt hrd medfart, hvilket er synd, for den har faktisk mange kvaliteter. En af rsagerne er nok, at den er lidt svr at stte i bs. Bde titlen og bagsideteksten indikerer, at der er tale om en vampyrroman, men hvis man har sat ...

    I bought this book as it was highly recommended read by the staff of the bookshop and I regret it. I have a feeling the bookshop is having a hard time selling the stock of this badly written book. Or maybe the person who recommended it must have been high on something to consider the b...

    Hvis jeg udelukkende skulle vurdere denne bog ud fra de sidste ca. 80 sider, kunne den nok have sneget sig p et tretal, men desvrre for bogen var der 200 sider fr disse sidste 80 sider. Utroligt at en bog, der omhandler korruption, borgerkrig, anarkister, politifolk, forrddere ...

    Sebasti Alzamora does not seem to know what kind of novel he wants to write with BLOOD CRIME. Is it historical fiction about war and religious persecution? Is it gothic horror about vampires? Is it an allegory of good and evil? Is it a crime novel? Is it meant to be a thriller? This ...

    Complicated story set during the civil war in Spain. I think I liked it, but really need to read again. I think it is a novel that has a lot of meaning, and in the end of the day, it is Spanish (Catalan) and carries a lot of the history of Spain. Marists brothers seeking to escape Barc...

    Although the ending was telegraphed, it was an interesting concept. Part crime novel, part war novel (Spanish Civil War), part take-off on the horror genre (vampires & monsters-besides the human ones). It is more fantastical in a Borges manner than the standard crime or war novel. ...
