Y todo en un contexto de comedia teatral que bien le queda a los enredos del libro. Comparable to Dumas, this man is a pure reincarnation of the brilliant Caballeroo author. The Captain, of course, cannot be told what to do, and alienates friends and enemies alike by continuing to see the actress.

Caballero del Jubon Amarillo, El – Las Aventuras del Capitan Alatriste

Even if the wastrel of a king doesn’t deserve Alatriste’s loyalty in the least. Intrigues at court threaten the relationship and even the life of the king at hand, a plot which is conceived by none other than Gualterio Maletesta, the Captain’s arch nemesis.

A man of honor and dignity no matter what life throws at him. No es malo y tiene sus momentos, pero es el que menos me ha gustado de la serie. Quotes from El caballero del Esta 5ta entrega de la serie hace derroche de intriga, misterios, peligro y sobre todo, de un rico desarrollo de los personajes. The fact that Alatriste still serves something greater than himself. I adored Alatriste, caabllero like Inigo, looking up to him as this great man, a gentleman and dl soldier cabaallero from a different cloth than the rest of humanity.

With the fragile terms of upholding honor, it seems that old comrades and friends are hard to keep close, honor being destroyed by the least slur or cross-eyed look. And there are plenty of swordfights–swash swash, buckle buckle!

Book by book I am losing interest in the story. Sadly, the novel bogs down after the first swordfight in the opening pages, but picks up as now year old Amaarillo accompanies playwright Francisco de Quevedo into the royal apartments, as the artist’s scribe. This weakness for a beautiful woman, despite all dangers, is a trait he and Inigo share, as it turns out. I think this is my favorite book so far in this series–more and deeper aspects of Captain Alatriste’s character are revealed, and we experience the pangs and elations and disillusionments of his young protege Inigo on the path to adulthood as well as Inigo’s often wise, frequently ironic perspective as he narrates the story from the distance of old age.

As young Inigo Balboa, our narrator, says – it is as if earning his respect makes one respect oneself all the more. Just a man, doing the best he can to raise vel boy well and maybe get a little enjoyment out of this life that usually kicks him in the balls and walks away.

Not God, but his King, for whom he has bled so much, given so much of his life to. The second half made up for the leisure pace of the beginning with emotional intensity ramped up and actual cloak and dagger duels. They’re not perfect, but they’re so entertaining that I’m willing to overlook the sometimes lengthy In this fifth installment of the Captain Alatriste series, Inigo now nearly 17 and his mentor discover a plot to murder the king.

My first book in this series. The suspense is masterful, with Alatriste and Inigo both independently betrayed by their foolish pride or love, and racing, swords in hand, against a very short deadline separately but toward the same goal. Arturo Perez-Reverte seems to have taken a long hard look at the deficiencies in the previous volumes and repeaired them.

He put this experience into his book ‘Territorio Comanche’, focusing on the years of Bosnian massacres. He writes faballero comfortably, the story rolls off the page so easily and the images that appear in my mind are so vivid.

Again and again– I think the book might have lost pages by excising either of these themes. View all 4 comments. The brightest star of the poetry and therefore dramatic firmament is Lope de Vega.

Can I just say how much I love the man in black, Alatriste’s ever present antagonist, Gualaterio Malatesta? Paperbackpages. Alatriste gets on the wrong side of the wrong people and finds himself in deep amarlllo, constantly watched and followed and at all times needing to defend himself.

But Alatriste soon finds this love short spoken when he finds himself face to face with the mysterious cavalier in the yellow doublet who is no other than King Phillip IV, whom Caballreo is forced to rival with for the eye of the beholden beauty. A court favorite, who writes poetry for the king and plays for the queen, is Francisco de Quevedo, another historical literary figure who, along with a famous actress and her husband, figure prominently in the story.

The Inquisit My first book in this series. He worked as a war reporter for twenty-one years – I skipped some volumes in the series due to my fumbling of library requests, but reading the fifth book after the first was not really a problem – the plot is self-contained and various references to events in previous books are not really spoilerish.

This seemed rather slow to get started to me, and there was a lot of repetition. Preferring the Dominicans, this younger royal amarjllo is more amenable to the Inquisition. Do you not know the difference?

Dec 23, Lucas Rodriguez rated it it was amazing. Then, he jumped to news reporter for TVE, Spanish national channel. Easily the best of the ‘Captain Alatriste’ books so far But the real focus of the book is a,arillo the literary and theater life of early 17th century Spain. Characters lose their real image and realism goes on secon We often hear legends about Spanish love.
