Beneath the Mountain – Luca D’Andrea

Beneath the Mountain, by Luca D’Andrea is correct, entertaining and intriguing. We know the protagonist survives because he narrates the story, but the ending is very unexpected.

Even though we know the protagonist doesn’t die, it’s so entertaining that you can’t stop reading. It has some fantastical elements, but they don’t hinder the story. I like the setting of the story and the relationship between the characters, especially with the father-in-law.

Regarding the literary quality, it’s very correct. I guess the translation is correct as well. It wouldn’t be my first time reading the same book in English and Spanish and, unfortunately, both of the versions being completely different.

The setting is very good.

I recommend it.
