Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte; 2 editions; First published in ; Subjects: DAISY for print-disabled Download ebook for print-disabled (DAISY). A provocative literary thriller that playfully pays tribute to classic tales of mystery and adventure. Lucas Corso is a book detective, a middle-aged mercenary hired . The Club Dumas (original Spanish title El Club Dumas) is a novel by Arturo Pérez-Reverte. The book is set in a world of antiquarian booksellers, echoing.
Corso returns to Spain to confront Borja. Corso does not question this, and finds himself even more strongly attracted to her.
He accuses Borja of being responsible for both murders. Borja, intending to use the legitimate copy of The Nine Doors to summon the Devil and gain ultimate knowledge, has destroyed his entire library to prevent others from following his lead.
Corso demands payment, but Borja ignores him and begins the ritual. Corso, who notices that one of the plates that Borja is using is a forgery, leaves in disgust. He hears Borja's screams of anguish as the ritual goes awry, and surmises that each of them will get the devil they deserve.
The Club Dumas references many books. Several of the references are not to a work itself, but to a singular instance of the physical book, such as a rare edition or type of binding.
Several of these books are inventions of Perez-Reverte.
Occultist works published by Aristide Torchia in Venice:. Aristide Torchia, the fictional author from the novel, has been referred to in other media including The Ninth Gate a film based on the novel , and video game Max Payne.
Torchia was born in He was apprenticed in Leyden under the Elzevir family. After returning to Venice he published small works on philosophical and esoteric themes.

Funding for USA. Nevertheless, it is possible to enjoy this book without having read that. The early part of the book seemed to drag as it dealt heavily with the literary references and not much action. For those who don't already know, the movie The Ninth Gate, starring Johnny Depp, was based on this novel.
But the book has a much more complicated plot, one that tricks you in the end. Once the action started up beginning with the entrance of the mysterious young girl the book really got me going. Then I was hooked. It has a much more complicated plot than the movie and heads in a completely different direction.
Very good, though it left me a little disappointed in the end. I wanted to know more.
Still, highly recommended. An interesting exploration of a literary agent exploring a known book about the devil transposed with the Dumas story of the "Three Musketeers". While the only devil to be summoned up is that of one's own inner devil Well worth the read and far better than the Ninth Gate movie.
Best novel you've never heard of. Typical of other book-to-film adaptations, the book is so much richer. Unrelated, right? Or are they? The book is told using many references to classic literature, including of course "The Three Musketeers", "Moby Dick", and many others.
The characters themselves become characters within these classics, following clues to unlocking the mysteries of the two manuscripts, and paralleling their fates. Read more Ebook Library.

Corso agrees, but continues to research the partial Dumas draft. Devious plots are meanwhile underway, launched by the evil Superintendent of Finance, Fouquet.
