Now middle-aged, he has accepted his fate as a lonely but satisfied man, having worked his way up in his career, coming from nothing but paying his dues to be taught by the greatest fencing master in his days; ce his personal life, he left everything he knew in Paris over a broken heart- the only woman he ever loved.
The poignant decline of Don Jaime, along with his perseverence despite the obstacles put before him, make him sympathetic despite his relatively cool nature. Don Jaime Astarloa is the one of the last of a noble, dying breed.

Even though one of these characters plays prominently later in the story, the numerous scenes with this handful of eccentrics merely drag the plot unnecessarily. Come on, Arturo, you’re better at putting together plot threads than this.
I’m glad not only to have read it, but also that I have 2 other books by this author awaiting my attention.
I will gladly admit to punching the air with a triumphant whoop when that happened ; hide spoiler ] The glimpses into the maestro’s past were far more interesting to me than the action happening in “the present” esgrjma honestly THAT’S the book I’d like to read: It is my understanding that this book was written by a native of Spain and translated quite well, I might add into English. View all 3 comments. A lot of historical references regarding Spain can make it a little confusing if you do wish I read this book in Spanish.
Was surprised to see it was written in It is anything but.

Ascolta una fedele lettrice: This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Adela de Otero irrompe nella vita tranquilla di Jaime Astarloa, maestro di scherma, come il sorgere di dde sfolgorante giornata estiva in pieno autunno.
Still, this is a solid 4-stars. As plot is not one of my primary reasons to read, I might find myself dismissing this as fluff. I found the other characters especially the “femme fatale” to be one dimensional and unbelievable, when I could keep the characters straight that is.
I will admit that there were moments that the writing in this book was beautiful and I have to give pedez author credit where credit is due. Denying your age is like denying your life. If you get confused, that’s because those were confusing times!
Audie Award for Solo Narration – Male The mystery was pretty easy to solve, edgrima even though I figured out how it would end early on I still did enjoy the actual process of the characters discovering it on their own.
El maestro de esgrima by Arturo Pérez-Reverte
This is my favourite of Perez-Reverte’s books that I’ve read thus far. I did not just hope that there would be more, but mastro was enough foreshadowing that I felt confident there would, indeed, be more. Don Jaime was an interesting character to follow as he tried to discover the truth behind the conspiracy.
Take from that, what you will: It just made me roll my eyes a little. The setting of the novel was at the dusk time of fencing as way for honor bound fighting, or self defence.
Amazon Business Service for business customers. And I still liked it, I would just read all the other ones by him first because they’re that much better. That was confirmed inwhen was published the reverre book of his Captain Alatriste saga, which has been his trademark. She persuades the reluctant “men only” fencing teacher to take her on as his fencing student.
Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Caro Arturo, questo tuo libro mi era rimasto indietro della felice stagione in cui ti amai. I was delighted that I find a good book without influenced by any review, or opinion of other people.

The key to all the secrets and murders, the betrayals and deaths, pere political in arfuro. Se ve que se ha documentado bien. In the end, it is the narrative that makes this trip worth the time. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. A fairly good book. After reading and thoroughly enjoying The Flanders Panel, I was expecting a lot from this book, and ended up feeling kind of let down.
