    One thought on “1492: The Life and Times of Juan Cabezon of Castile”

    1. historisch boeiend verhaal uit 15e eeuws Spanje met het leven van een gewone man op de vlucht en op zoek geen avonturenverhaal, prettig geschreven

    2. Tr s bien document Tr s instructif sur les m urs des Indiens de l poque Mais que c est ennuyeux Le h ros n a jamais de recul par rapport ce qu il voit, on est touff par la multitude de d tails sur le mode de vie des Indiens, mais en fait je ne vois presque pas en quoi ceci est un roman Si le personnage n tait pas fictif on pourrait ais ment mettre ce livre en documentaire historique Quel dommage, le sujet tait int ressant.
