After having read it in the original Spanish, I have to say that this story is one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. It's deeply philosophical. It's richly symbolic and full of double meanings and Biblical allusions fitted perfectly to a decidedly non-Christian but nonetheless beautiful message. It's because of that message it was put on the Catholic Church's Index of Prohibited Books when it was published, but it's also because of that message and the way it's presented that this book holds an important place in the canon of Spanish literature. I strongly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
