    Everything Under by Daisy Johnson Everything Under is about just that the things that lurk beneath the surface, of a river, of a memory, of a person It is a slow unspooling of a horrifying and tragic story, a queer, found family sort of reimagining of a myth I d best not say which one, though it s mentioned in loads of reviews if you re curious.

    1. Las nuevas experiencias, los viajes, tienen un influjo amn sico poderoso, como cuando pintas con un nuevo color sobre otro anterior que desaparece.Me ha gustado mucho, al principio pens que iba a ser una historia muy pesada, pero la verdad es que la he devorado r pidamente y se la recomiendo a cualquiera que busque una aventura y, sobre todo, que quiera aprender m s de la cultura china.

    2. Una m sera estrella, me sabe mal ser tan taca a pero es que echando la vista atr s, es imposible recordar algo que me haya gustado de este libro Primero el estilo de escritura no es nada llamativo A veces, aunque la historia no sea muy de mi agrado, si la escritura engancha, es bonita, me atrapada un poco igual la trama en s Pero no, no estamos ante ese tipo de escritura Segundo los personajes son un desastre, no hay por donde cogerlos De 5 protagonistas que hay, solo se salva uno El resto son l [...]

    3. Es la m s floja que he le do de la autora No ha acabado de motivarme y he ido dejando la lectura relegada mientras le a otras novelas Al final la he acabado y aunque me ha hecho vivir una aventura, no he logrado engancharme como con Iacobus, El ltimo cat n o El origen perdido.

    4. De schrijfstijl van het boek komt niet overeen met het genre van het boek lijkt het wel.Hoewel onze bieb het classificeert als avontuur wordt deze queeste niet spannend beschreven.Vrij droog zelfs.Desondanks voor mij de moeite waard om te lezen.

    5. OK, so some spoilers contained in the rant below, so on the off chance you intend to read it, maybe look at some reviews better than my 2 stars So there are some things going for this book set in 1920s China, it is an interesting period, and the factual information contained in the novel is interesting and from what I could tell all accurate.However there are number of problems for me, and as is often the case with a translated book, I don t know where the fault lies author or translator.This bo [...]

    6. Todo bajo el cielo como el resto de novelas de Matilde Asensi es una historia de aventuras muy entretenida llena de acci n y misterios Esta en concreto cuenta adem s con una buena labor de investigaci n sobre la cultura china de la que se nos ofrecen datos, leyendas, pistas filos ficas que resultan tan entretenidas e interesantes como la propia trama en s.Sin embargo no sabr a decir qu ocurre, si se trata quiz s de una falta generalizada de ritmo pero esta novela engancha un poquito menos que ot [...]

    7. Una vez m s Matilde Asensi nos mete en una aventura donde aprendemos sobre culturas y diferentes formas de pensar a las occidentales En esta novela es China donde piensan que aunque no vivas mucho o s , est s enfermo o no, tengas dinero o no, rico o no, hay que ser feliz con lo que tengas Todo bajo el cielo de Matilde Asensi.

    8. J ai choisi ce livre un peu par hasard dans la biblioth que Je n tais pas tr s convaincue par le r sum mais devinez quoi ce fut une agr able surprise.On retourne dans le pass et on voyage travers les pages dans la Chine antique C tait tr s int ressant et j ai d couvert beaucoup de choses sur la culture et les croyances chinoises Le principal point n gatif est que je ne me suis attach e aucun des personnages.Ps lu en espagnol plut t simple m me si certains mots de vocabulaires sp cifiques concern [...]

    10. Elvira De Poulain, a Spanish painter in Paris in the 1920s, has to leave for Shanghai with her recently orphaned niece Fernanda, because her estranged husband R mi died there.Turns out R mi has left Elvira nothing but debts, and that he was actually killed by the Green Gang as they were looking for an artifact he kept hidden in his house The artifact contains an old story, outlining how to find three pieces of an ancient text that will lead the way to the tomb of the first emperor of China.Unfor [...]

    11. It took me ages to finish it even if it s not that long I just couldn t bring myself to read it at times I won t say it s bad because it isn t It s a good old fashioned adventure story like Indiana Jones with clearly defined archetypes heroine, sidekick, shady fellow bad guys The setting is remarkable and well described and made to look and feel grandiose, the way it should be The story is fairly predictable, not even the plot twist near the end is surprising, you could see it coming a mile away [...]

    12. Mi vida en Occidente me parec a lejana, muy lejana, y todas las cosas que all ten an valor aqu resultaban absurdas Los viajes tienen ese poder m gico sobre el tiempo y la raz n, me dije, al obligarte a romper con las costumbres y los miedos que, sin darnos cuenta, se han vuelto gruesas cadenas No hubiera querido estar en ninguna otra parte en aquel momento ni hubiera cambiado la brisa del Yangts por el aire de Europa

    13. Comenzo muy interesante, pero luego se vuelve demasiado fantastico y jalado de los pelos Con todo, muy entretenido e interesante, pues hace referencia a muchos elementos de la cultura china.

    14. ne sono stata attratta sin dalle prime pagine una splendida avventura che mi ha particolarmente emozionato poich sto studiando l antica cultura cinese proprio in questo periodo con tanto di lacrimuccia all ultima pagina.

    15. Indiana Jones sarebbe pi credibile godibile, ma quando si va sottoterra diventa davvero la fiera del blooper

    16. Un delicioso viaje por China y por la transformaci n de dos mujeres atrapadas en su propia idiosincrasia

    17. Atrapante, lectura liviana y divertida, interesante por la mucha informaci n sobre cultura y tradici n en china, un poco fantasioso por momentos Recomendado.

    19. I liked most that this mystery and historical fiction novel was a great pretext for presenting the real China s cultural heritage, built on a millennial tradition The story is also not too bad but also not extraordinary , but for me the background was the most important.I thought a lot regarding what it is the actual premise behind this novel, as I did not want to settle with the one that seemed obvious hypochondria is treated by pursuing a dangerous adventure I dismissed as well the other main [...]

Scorri per recensione in italiano Two Spanish ladies, a very mismatched couple of travel companions, comes to the mysterious China of the XX century and gets involved in a millenial intrigue to find out a legendary treasureI thought that was a nice start, but in the end I am not that satisfied.The adventure is structured as an old style pattern find some clue solve the enigma face the enemies overcome the difficulties travel to the next clue, but this is not necessarily a bad thing as a story of [...]

ESPA OL Es la segunda obra que leo de esta autora, despu s de El ltimo Cat n Quer a leer algo m s de ella porque me parece que escribe novelas de entretenimiento con una gran calidad, y este pensamiento se reafirma con esta novela.El comienzo es un poco lento, son muchos los antecedentes que pone para que empiece la verdadera historia, pero cuando sta comienza, es apasionante Se ambienta en China, y como es costumbre en esta autora, el nivel de documentaci n hace que, adem s de que la lectura en [...]
