    I feel cheated by this novel The question is does the wonderfully touchy and tragic ending justify the long toil the story took us through, to reach the end I was, actually, so very close never to reach it, because the first 350 pages made me so agitated, I wanted to leave the book unfinished on a few occasions Even now, when I turned the last page, I m still not sure if it was worth it.At first I liked the idea of a mental patient who thinks he s Christopher Columbus, and tells the stories, I feel cheated by this novel The question is does the wonderfully touchy and tragic ending justify the long toil the story took us through, to reach the end I was, actually, so very close never to reach it, because the first 350 pages made me so agitated, I wanted to leave the book unfinished on a few occasions Even now, when I turned the last page, I m still not sure if it was worth it.At first I liked the idea of a mental patient who thinks he s Christopher Columbus, and tells the stories, mixing history and present time, to his nurse However, as the book progresses, it doesn t go anywhere, the plot stalls, and Columbus stories drag on, without sense There are way too many of those confused story episodes, unsorted and out of chronological, or any other logical order On top of it, the nurse develops emotional attachment to Columbus, but that was explained in a very superficial and unbelievable way ...

    Some of the language in this book is quite poetic The idea of a man so traumatised that he retreats into a fantasy of being Columbus is very interesting Unfortunately I do not like the execution of the idea.Niggles 1 All that talk of women drove me insane I understood it was going to lead up to some real life girlfriend, or wife at some point, but that did not make those little stories less annoying, orrelevant I felt I was wasting precious time reading those bits.2 Consuela seemed Some of the language in this book is quite poetic The idea of a man so traumatised that he retreats into a fantasy of being Columbus is very interesting Unfortunately I do not like the execution of the idea.Niggles 1 All that talk of women drove me insane I understood it was going to lead up to some real life girlfriend, or wife at some point, but that did not make those little stories less annoying, orrelevant I felt I was wasting precious time reading those bits.2 Consuela seemed rather flat to me I was given a few statements about her here and there and that was it From those titbits I really did not feel like I was getting to know her at all This is what I got nurse, divo...

    It s not very often I dedicate time to a book when I don t know what s happening in its pages With this story, you don t get clarity until the last chapter, so you must trust the author to take you on the journey with absolutely no map or landmarks ironic or fitting for a tale about a navigator I enjoyed the journey through a man s quest for his identity he fervently believes himself to be Chr...
