First of all ? I am just as electrified as everyone else. I have read the three books without a pause. I have even re-read them a second time, within 8 days. No kidding.
Yet ? some doubt after all:
Paolo Roberto crosses himself before a crucifix with the Madonna!
Now, who is hanging on the cross? Is it the Madonna? I think it is someone else.
Secondly: Zalachenko was born in Stalingrad, in the Ukraine!
Where Stalingrad is located I thought was obvious to anyone. Russia!
If these two simple errors are so obvious, then how many others are there?
Yes, I know it is fiction, not history, but still …
We must not speak ill of the dead. But a novel must have the style of a novel within reality.
Not the style of a journalist who must meet his deadline. With all respect for deadlines.
How many other “errors” are there?
Finally, it is fiction, and superb fiction. The character of Lisbeth is unsurpassable.
