Actually, he couldn't let out some clichés, like the main hero and the heroine fallin in love, another character redeeming himself and suddenly growing up and understanding the importance of love and family. Very Americanish, if you can understand what I mean.
But I enjoyed his writing style, how he could mix science, history and his own story without being boring. The charcaters had strong personalities, even if a bit stereotyped, and he seemed to focus more on details and description instead of the people intereacting in the book. I don't know it this is because this book is one of a serie, so I maybe missed some information put in the other books, but after reading another book from him, I'm pretty sure this is just how he writes.
And I appreciated him even more in English, understanding once more how a translation can change an author's style.
Anyway, this is surely a good book to read to enjoy yourself during a trip....Continua
