      Al leer sobre el praguense Leo Perutz, le llama a uno la atenci n la cantidad de referentes con los que se le quiere comparar que si mezcla de Conan Doyle, Kafka y Dostoyevski, que si mezcla de Graham Greene, Calvino y Borges, que si mezcla de Agatha Christie y Kafka Hasta con Dumas y Stevenson ha sido comparado Quiz s sean exageraciones cuando lo que pretend a el autor al escribir esta novela era deleitar al lector con un misterio No s si influencia, pero el parecido con Kafka es m s que eviden [...]

      Ogni lettore si costruisce negli anni la propria rete di riferimenti, di raggruppamenti, di rimandi fra una lettura e l altra e poi approfondisce cio che piu gli e consono oppure cio che e piu diverso allo scopo di prender confidenza con cio che non conosce Ho ritrovato Il maestro del giudizio universale in diverse letture gia fatte, prima fra tutte Le braci di Marai, e poi L ora del diavolo di Pessoa, ma anche la signorina Moidil che guarda dentro al suo magazzino nel Silenzio degli innocenti e [...]

      Me hab a formado expectativas altas en torno a este autor y confieso que me siento un poco decepcionado En realidad, el motivo de mi elecci n es un viraje an mico hacia temas germ nicos, y Leo Perutz fue un jud o austriaco Pero no soy aficionado al g nero policial y tampoco me ha convencido la f rmula de mezclar ese g nero con elementos fant sticos.Lo que s me ha hecho gracia es acercarme a la Viena de 1909 Transportarme a otras pocas y evaluar los progresos de otros tiempos es algo que me gusta [...]

      Ognuno di noi si porta dentro il suo Giudizio Universale Romanzo bizzarro, spiazzante ma al tempo stesso avvincente, che si destreggia fra diversi generi narrativi, dal giallo classico al mystery al fantastico, con una spruzzata di grottesco o addirittura di horror, senza che il risultato appaia un patchwork artificioso o meccanico, ma scivolando invece con destrezza lungo un racconto ipnotico e denso di suggestioni.Inizialmente sembra di percepire atmosfere e personaggi che echeggiano lo stile [...]

      Nella Vienna di inizio Novecento una serie di suicidi inspiegabili scuotono il mondo delle arti e dell aristocrazia e conducono il barone Von Yosch, principale accusato di aver istigato il rivale in a, l attore Eugen Bischoff, a compiere l estremo gesto, a indagare per svelare cosa si celi dietro a queste morti sospette La soluzione del caso si riveler inimmaginabile Questo romanzo segna il mio primo approccio a Perutz e lo fa in modo positivo, se pur con qualche riserva Non saprei come classifi [...]

      Isterismo vienneseS , mi sono lasciata tentare da questo Leo Perutz dal titolo che suggeriva un affresco o un quadro, ma sono stata ingannata Non ho provato alcun feeling per il protagonista, nevrotico e sensitivo La sua nevrosi mitteleuropea e Belle Epoque troppo lontana dai canoni moderni per essere comprensibile La storia assomiglia a un racconto di Sherlock Holmes in versione viennese, snob e damerino, ma l originale era migliore Londra batte Vienna 1 a 0 Sicuramente Perutz ha scritto di meg [...]

      One afternoon, Eugene Bischoff, a notable Viennese stage actor, wanders off during a cordial afternoon of music among friends in order to successfully commit suicide Or was it murder Who is the Master of the Day of Judgment Nothing is quite what it seems in Vienna in the early years of the twentieth century.Thus the story begins as a cracking locked room mystery, as exemplified by those of the great John Dickson Carr, only to rapidly transform into an hallucinogenic psychological romp through th [...]

      Der Meister des J ngsten Tages von Leo Perutz kommt mir so vor wie eine Parodie von Dostoyevsky ber Agatha Christie, ich meine so w rde ich mir Dostoyevsky vorstellen h tte er Agatha Christie nachgeahmt Die Geschichte mischt gnadenlos den normal Ablauf einer Kriminellgeschichte mit dem fatastischen, gruseligen und kaum glaubhaften Erscheinungen des Lebens, oder ist es des Rausches, oder ist es des Traums Mann k nnte glaubwurding behaupten Der Roman ist ein Kriminalroman der keiner ist Die Zweide [...]

      Though I ve done them in the wrong order, you might want to get through Robert Musil before moving onto this lesser Czech Viennese writer who is said to have been admired by Borges, Italo Calvino and Graham Greene who are all the type of writers who read so much they are perpetually recommending people you ve never heard of.This 1921 book is apparently a minor classic a murder mystery before the genre become entirely calcified with a strong admixture of the Freudian psychological ideas of its ti [...]

      I was ready to give this book a 3 star rating but the last three chapters are a tour de force and made me need to read the first chapter again, changing its impact brilliantly.Indeed, I ll need to read the whole thing again very soon because I know I missed so much detail during my first reading.

      Delicioso whodunit enga osamente sencillo que destaca sobre todo por su ambientaci n la Viena de comienzos del siglo XX , ese lugar donde los caballeros se reun an para tocar cuartetos de Brahms y comentaban los grandes estrenos en los teatros del Imperio justo antes de iniciar una partidita de ajedrez Tambi n me ha gustado mucho lo que logra Perutz con la figura del narrador y el giro fant stico que imprime a su relato, realzado con la breve nota final que profundiza en las connotaciones del te [...]

      Come Kurtz, anche i protagonisti del racconto guardano nell abisso Inevitabilmente, l abisso guarda dentro di loro Ancora una volta, gli ordinati sobborghi della nobilt viennese vedono scardinata la razionale joie de vivre, moderatamente bohemienne, dei membri della loro societ dall irruzione del fantastico, dell irrazionale Perutz ritorna sui luoghi dell Albero di mango, questa volta la sovversione non viene dalla lontana India, ma dalla vicina Toscana e da un misconosciuto alchimista rinascime [...]

      Una storia sminuitaQuesto libro ci racconta, come viene anche descritto nelle alette del testo, degli eventi che hanno portato alla morte di un attore e di come il barone, protagonista in prima persona, cerca di trovare il vero colpevole di tale delitto.Purtroppo, contrariamente a quello che lascia intendere questa descrizione, il romanzo non consiste in una vera e propria analisi dei fatti con le deduzioni che ne seguono Se cos fosse stato, credo che mi avrebbe preso di pi e l avrei praticament [...]

      This is an amazing novel where you never quite know how much the author is playing with you and what the reality in the book is, and which part is fiction within fiction or even fiction within fiction within fiction The plot is constructed very well and intentionally misleads you, even though it gives away certain cues which you can identify after a repeated reading of the book At the ends, there follows an intelligent and truly unexpected twist This is a very fascinating book, truly

      One of the most frustrating books I ve ever read This is a 3 or 4 star book with a zero star ending Very disappointing I m not sure what Karl Edward Wagner saw in it in order to recommend it as one of the best non supernatural horror novels.

      Not sure what to make of this book and I have to say I didn t enjoy it very much A disappointment because I liked St Peters Snow from the same author Supposedly a classic locked room mystery in the tradition of Sherlock Holmes but it s fairly obvious what s going on even if the details require filling in and reading to the end Other reviewers obviously got out of the novel than I did I tend to be annoyed and frustrated by fiction that s about writing fiction and metatextual stuff so maybe shou [...]

      There s in this than meets the eye There are untold mysteries hovering in the story background There are unwritten scenes beyond the action, and an unknown sequel to be told.Only the best writers can encapsulate a weird supernatural horror mystery within a short timeframe where actions and reactions give away enough spine chilling atmosphere to allow the reader to daydream the unsung details A book, an oxymoron the shortest and fastest horror ever told, painstakingly and ever slowly served in s [...]

      Molto bello, profondo, angosciante ognuno di noi ha un orrore personale da fronteggiare, da nascondere, di cui vergognarsi Divorato in 2 giorni, Perutz non mi delude mai, anche se in questo romanzo non ho trovato la surrealita degli altri suoi scritti molto piu cupo, piu disperato, piu metafisico che surreale, a tratti ho stentato a riconoscere il suo stile che mi ha sempre affascinato.
