    3. Just finished this dark and brooding and brilliant novel by a Basque writer, which explores the fate of a former ETA militant in 1982 Barcelona Best book I have read this year, and I ve just special ordered his The Accordionist s Son For some reason it felt like Camusr so dark a novel, it seems odd to say I loved it but I did.

    4. Atxaga builds tension excellently in this novel that deserves better than to be labelled merely a thriller Conflict, mistrust, the voices just some of the things that our former militant protagonist must contend with against the backdrop of the 1982 World Cup in a state where democracy is still young The Lone Man will appeal to those with an interest in the Basque armed struggle, although the novel is set in Catalonia and doesn t dwell too much on the nature or roots of ETA s campaign What Atxag [...]

    5. S , su desarrollo es lento, pero probablemente porque cabalga a medio pelo entre la novela de suspenso y las revisiones ideol gicas a las que son tan adeptos ciertos novelistas anteriores a la modernid interneta Me quedo con las partes donde el personaje debe confrontar sus nebulosas convicciones con la buena vida peque oburguesa del hotel Y est buena la reflexi n de que las revoluciones socialistas fracasan porque no comprenden los caprichos de los individuos, y que finalmente lo que nos descri [...]

    6. Va de ex etarras asentados en las cercan as de la Barcelona del Mundial 82 Nada de arrepentidos o reinsertados Se lo pasan pipa regentando un restaurante o era un hotel y preparando el pan m s rico del universo mundo Alojan a la selecci n polaca y por ah anda un etarra todav a en activo y alguien va y les traiciona Me desagrad profundamente y fue un acto de masoquismo terminarlo.

    7. El hombre solo takes a while to get going, but turns into a very tense thriller in the second half However, there were bits of the writing that seemed a bit trivial, and I thought there were too many themes that weren t explored in enough depth Read my full review here wp p1gPfH bn

    8. I wish Atxaga went further in explaining the circumstances and origins behind the political tension between the ETA and the democratized Spanish government, in order for readers to truly understand the significance in the actions and decisions made by Carlos and his conspirators.

    9. It was OK never really jelled for me, I didn t find the characters believable, there wasn t the suspense, there were instances where I thought I would have used a different word lost in translation, and the author looks a right smarmy git in his photo on the back.

    10. An cdota original, desarrollo muy lento y con una resoluci n previsible En cuanto a la ubicaci n no comment.

    11. Excelente visi n, sin histerismos ni demagogia, de la soledad de quien se rinde a la violencia en busca de unos ideales.
