    I bought Imprimatur by Rita Monaldi and Francesco Sorti a while back, but totally forgot about it I discovered and read it last month I wouldn t go so far as calling it a page turner but it was an interesting book to read The fact that the authors did a lot of reasearch before publishing this novel was obvious but they could have done a better job presenting their finds Long story short, it is an enjoyable read but it lacks dept What Monaldi Sorti wrote is not a bad book, but in opinion i I bought Imprimatur by Rita Monaldi and Francesco Sorti a while back, but totally forgot about it I discovered and read it last month I wouldn t go so far as calling it a page turner but it was an interesting book to read The fact that the authors did a lot of reasearch before publishing this novel was obvious but they could have done a better job presenting their finds Long story short, it is an enjoyable read but it lacks dept What Monaldi Sorti wrote is not a bad book, but in opinion it is not really a novel By that I mean it is not a great work of literature It is not something that will be studied at the Universities In other words, it s no Umberto Eco The characters are a bit stereotyped and predictable The plot is good but some things are repeated ad nauseum I do recommend it as it seems to be better than what you can find in historical fiction genre these days Plus, it is clear that the authors did put some effort into it So, I give it my recommendantion, but a lukewarm one If real literature is what you go for, skip this one Kupila sam Imprimatura Rite Monaldi i Francesca Sortija prije dosta vremena, ali sam posve zaboravila na njim Otkrila sam ju i pro itala pro loga mjeseca Ne bi ba rekla da sam je pro itala u dahu, ali bila je zanimljiva O ito je da su autori dosta istra ivali prije objavljivanja ovoga romana, ali mogli su malo i bolje prikazati rezultate svojih istra ivanja Ukratko, to je zabavno tivo ali mu nedostaje dubine Ono to su Monaldi Sorti napisali nije lo a knjiga, ali to nije roman u pravom smislu rije i Pri tome mislim da to nije knji evno djelo To nije ne to to e se izu avati na sveu ili tima Drugim rije ima, ba i nije Umberto Eco Karakteri su malo stereotipni i predvidljivi Zaplet je dobar ali neke se stvari ponavljaju dok posve ne dosade Preporu ujem ga jer mi se ini boljim od povijesne fikcije koja se prodaje u zadnje vrijeme Potrudili su se ako ni ta drugo Tako da ima moju preporuku, ali mlaku, jer ako tra ite pravu knji evnost presko ite ovu knjigu

    Throughout this very lengthy, but absolutely intriguing novel, I couldn t figure out why this book had been banned in Rome Sure, it deals with Innocent XI whom it took centuries to finally get beatified, and sure, despite the consistency of historians of the Papacy in depicting him as a simple, humble, saintly figure, he obviously had a few flaws After 500 or so pages, I just couldn t figure out why it d been banned Untilthe Addendum, the Notes, the other historical documents at the end Throughout this very lengthy, but absolutely intriguing novel, I couldn t figure out why this book had been banned in Rome Sure, it deals with Innocent XI whom it took centuries to finally get beatified, and sure, despite the consistency of historians of the Papacy in depicting him as a simple, humble, saintly figure, he obviously had a few flaws After 500 or so pages, I just couldn t figure out why it d been banned Untilthe Addendum, the Notes, the other historical documents at the end of the book Then it all made sense The authors, employing first hand research that s freaking amazing i.e., primary sources from the Vatican archives as well as other sources , there reveal the almost incontrovertible fact that Innocent XI, through his money grubbing, hypocrisy, shadiness among other things set in motion a whole series of major historical currents still reverberating down to the present This novel helps one appreciate the scope challenge of the dysfunctional system of the Vatican for anyone gutsy enough to attempt reforming it But remember, this book was banned in Rome Just as anyone who tries, from within or without, to question the Roman Catholic system its operations, is immediately silenced, or challenged, or discredited, or made to look the fool, or bought off It s typical behavior, learned over long centuries, and is, unfortunately, very efficient The functionaries of the Curia, along with the privileged, inside outside of the Vatican, share such expertise with the kind of politicians, especially the right wing, in the U.S who are routinely busy using it against citizens in this country currently I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller, and can t wait to dive into the authors sequels Secretum, Veritas

    Not worth losing time for that one, I have been trying to finish it but it s so boring I can t stand it any You might think this has the same style as the Da Vinci code but it s not, it s just a book made by some historians who think they can write a novel by just spitting out all their knowledge of the middle age

    This book was apparently popular in Europe Its initial boycotting in Italy no doubt added to its popularity Set in Rome in the late seventeenth century it deals with the events of nine days in that city, when a number of strangers are quarantined in an Inn The motley group potentially holds spies, maybe assassins, etc, and as the events unfold there isthan an innuendo that the Church was very much involved in shady and undercover political operations.As I am very much aware that the dar This book was apparently popular in Europe Its initial boycotting in Italy no doubt added to its popularity Set in Rome in the late seventeenth century it deals with the events of nine days in that city, when a number of strangers are quarantined in an Inn The motley group potentially holds spies, maybe assassins, etc, and as the events unfold there isthan an innuendo that the Church was very much involved in shady and undercover political operations.As I am very much aware that the darker aspects of Church history contain much that is not holy or sacred , I found that this narrative did not add anything surprising For those who believe that the Church has only been involved in good or sacred things, this book might well prove to be illuminating Certainly the historical elements of the story s setting are well researched but it appears to me that the authors were very much aware that their book might cause problems so they are careful to ensure that their interpretations have as much historical credibility as possible For me, that tended to make the reading a little bit turgid and perhaps overwritten although this might be the fault of the translator.For the general reader the book tends to be perhaps a little too long, but in all it is intriguing enough a format to carry one through the sequences of events with a certain amount of interest If they are unaware that the Church has throughout history been involved with intrigues involving spies and assassins then the innuendoes of this book might provide them with an enjoyable read

    It was hard to read this book Pages would be devoted to obscure history lessons and conjecture, as if the authors had returned from the library determined to show off everything they ve read.While there is a detective type story at the heart of the book, it is simply surrounded by too much other stuff junk to make for an enjoyable read.Perhaps this book would only be enjoyable for those that truly believe the Church can do no wrong Then, the allegations contained within might make for aIt was hard to read this book Pages would be devoted to obscure history lessons and conjecture, as if the authors had returned from the library determined to show off everything they ve read.While there is a detective type story at the heart of the book, it is simply surrounded by too much other stuff junk to make for an enjoyable read.Perhaps this book would only be enjoyable for those that truly believe the Church can do no wrong Then, the allegations contained within might make for astimulating experience I enjoyed the muddled language of the grave robbers, and I thought the apprentice s attempts at cooking were rather fun But on the whole the book feels too by the numbers, to encumbered with extraneous detail and sadly too boring Avoid

    That is what I call a mystery novel A great mix of history, facts, nuanced characters, murder and betrayal, truth and lies I was amused the whole time, I learned a great deal on history of France and the catholic church and I could almost smell the sewers and catacombs of old Rome I can t wait to read the other two books in the series

    One of the most boring books I ve ever read.

    Sorry, but no Unbearable, unreadable I had to give up halfway in, because I got to a point where I dreaded reading it I put it down and picked it up time and time again, maybe a dozen times, and I just couldn t continue Why, why, why I so wanted to like this I bought this book ages ago and decided to read it, since I m spendingtime at home right now and can readpaper books The cover was beautiful, the book had stuff I like religion, dungeons, Baroque, maybe even mummies BUT Sorry, but no Unbearable, unreadable I had to give up halfway in, because I got to a point where I dreaded reading it I put it down and picked it up time and time again, maybe a dozen times, and I just couldn t continue Why, why, why I so wanted to like this I bought this book ages ago and decided to read it, since I m spendingtime at home right now and can readpaper books The cover was beautiful, the book had stuff I like religion, dungeons, Baroque, maybe even mummies BUT.I didn t care for the plot or the characters I didn t like them, I didn t hate them not particularly I wanted them to go away Especially the first person narrator main character Ugh He was an orphan without any education, working as a servant in an inn, but he kept talking like this Rainy Philip Neri and Saint Carlo Borromeo had indeed been in the habit of praying in the catacombs , so the abbott reminded me And at the end of the last century, a courageous Jesuit, a certain Antonio Bosio, had descended into the most recondite and obscure crevices and had explored all the cavities under Rome, making many marvellous discoveries and publishing a book entitled Roma Subterranea, which had met with great and general plaudits The good Pope Gregory XV had, around 1620, laid down that the remains of saints were to be removed from the catacombs so that these precious relics could be distributed to churches throughout all Christendom, and he had instructed Cardinal Crescenzi to see to the implementation of this holy programme I wish I was joking, but I am not I love and appreciate period detail, but not when it is self serving, pedantic and jarringly out of place The book is nothing but paragraphs upon paragraphs of similar historical mush It s not only irritating and boring, it s also unrealistic, anachronistic, out of character The guy wants to become a journalist, which is fine But whenever I wished him to bespecific for example when he started talking about Jansenists, or quietism, and I was interested in getting some contemporary perspective on those things he suddenly would become elusive and vague, and say something like and there was that horrible heresy, which was condemned by the Holy Father in Whatever Year, and that bad person was said to follow it, but let s not forget that we needed to hurry up, because dinner Yeah, dinner Cooking He cooked very complicated dishes with fresh ingredients, for an inn full of people, in quarantine I bought this book years ago Every day All by himself He had no one to help him Very realistic.I should have quit the book early on, when I had my first moment of serious doubt And it was brought on by another character, Abbot Melani, who is a castrato because I don t think it was possible for a castrated man to be a priest in the post Tridentine Catholic Church maybe it still isn t People in the 17th century Italy were doctrinally savvy, why does no one object The main character should have known at once that the abbot was an impostor, but no one said a word someone expressed a doubt about him being not a real abbot, but a spy which he was , but about him being not eligible from the beginning nothing.I regret having spent so much time on this Oh, I forgot, there is one woman, who is a courtesan Oh my What could possibly happen Maybe there will be sex Someone please tell me or not I am out

    This was a difficult book to rate And it wasn t an easy book to read, either If you re all for fast paced action, this isn t for you This unfolds slowly, with a great deal of mystery, and a great deal of attention to historical detail I read it slowly, but I enjoyed reading it Up until the last 100 pages or so, that is Since the book is huge, a 100 pages from the end is practically nothing But the thing is that, by that point, I was already tad disappointed The mystery for me had been This was a difficult book to rate And it wasn t an easy book to read, either If you re all for fast paced action, this isn t for you This unfolds slowly, with a great deal of mystery, and a great deal of attention to historical detail I read it slowly, but I enjoyed reading it Up until the last 100 pages or so, that is Since the book is huge, a 100 pages from the end is practically nothing But the thing is that, by that point, I was already tad disappointed The mystery for me had been solved, and I wasn t bowled over by the revelations For that reason, I d give it 3 stars But for the beautiful writing, and for the attention to detail, and the book s ability to transport you, completely, into the 17th century, it deserved at least 4 stars That means 3 and 1 2 stars Which isn t possible I always round up when scoring, so that means it s a 4

    The first book of the series by Monaldi and Sorti has an interesting publishing history as it was not appreciated by the Catholic church in Italy An engaging mystery, and as with Secretum, the characters actually existed, with the exception of the narrator in the two books so far published A tight close read which leads one into interesting, historical spaces in Rome and a study into the politics of the 17th century preceding the second book It is not a fast read, or you will miss something i The first book of the series by Monaldi and Sorti has an interesting publishing history as it was not appreciated by the Catholic church in Italy An engaging mystery, and as with Secretum, the characters actually existed, with the exception of the narrator in the two books so far published A tight close read which leads one into interesting, historical spaces in Rome and a study into the politics of the 17th century preceding the second book It is not a fast read, or you will miss something important Leaves you with much to think about and retrace Loved it, frankly
