This is a ponderous, Gothic-y novel that takes too long to get going and by the time it does, the reader has been so dulled by the journey that the payoff seems weak. There's a crumbling estate, a weird family, love, insanity, murder - all the makings of a good, creepy read, but it just wasn't. Some of the writing is very good, and I enjoyed learning a bit about Basque culture, but ultimately I didn't care what happened by the end.

2.5 stars

Una retorcida novela de. un asesino a sueldo "honorable", en algunos momentos larga y detalladas, en otras pinceladas apenas sugeridas. Muchos temas y subtemas. No se si la traducción ayuda a que me haya parecida floja.
