    1. I know that a lot of more-qualified critics (like the Washington Post and Kirkus Review) gushed about Codex 632. Meh, I just don’t think these Da Vinci Code-type books are my cup of tea. So, what I am describing are my feelings—why I didn’t like the book.Codex 632 is about the origins of Christopher Columbus and his discoveries. It’s full of history, cryptology, travel etc. The facts behind what is discussed ad nauseum is interesting – for a while… However, for me, absolutely nothing [...]

    2. O ”Codex 632”, escrito entre 2004 e 2005, tenta ser um livro desmistificador da vida de Cristóvão Colombo, pelo menos numa perspectiva de lhe dar uma nacionalidade e, sobretudo, um objectivo.Cristóvão Colombo nunca foi, para mim, uma personagem digna de especial relevo.Para qualquer interessado em História, facilmente constata que Colombo não foi o primeiro a chegar à América, pois, e está mais do que comprovado, centenas de anos antes já lá “passeavam” feníncios, vikings e, [...]

    3. Pretty good Portuguese novel about a university professor hired by a theoretically scholarly organization to find out when Brazil was actually first visited by Europeans turns into a Da Vinci Code-type potboiler on the real identity of Christopher Columbus, (if that is really his name!) Full of some twists and turns on three continents as the story weaves from the U.S. to Portugal and then to Brazil. I think this would have been better as a non-fiction book since dos Santos doesn't really write [...]

    4. This first adventure of Professor Tomás Noronha is an excellent and instructive book. The whole approach to the plot is quite interesting, and all the knowledge the Author shares about Cristovão Columbus and his REAL origins is amazing and breathtaking for those who love History. I loved this book!Maria Carmo,Lisbon 29 November 2017

    5. Sem dúvida o pior livro da série Tomás Noronha.Sem enredo nenhum e com diálogos super extensos sempre a falar do mesmo

    6. Juntando factos históricos, meias verdades históricas, imensa especulação e as fórmulas de sucesso habituais neste estilo literário, José Rodrigues dos Santos apresenta um livro que é puro entretenimento, bem conseguido dentro do gênero. Recomendo essencialmente pela informação que apesar de tudo nos passa.

    7. Okay, I’m going to try to explain something here that I’m not sure how to explain. I’ve recently read several novels that are translations into English and in more than one I feel as if I’m missing something. This novel is translated from Portuguese and although it’s thoroughly readable and flows well enough there is something about the main character that just doesn’t work for me and I’m not sure what it is. He just isn’t believable. There is something awkward and stiff about hi [...]

    8. The level of historical research and data in this book is impressive, and is by far its best asset. The main theme (the personality and origin of Christopher Columbus) is a fascinating one. Unfortunately, that's about all I can say on the plus side. The historical detail was too overwhelming and distracting, especially for those of us who like to actually retain what they read. Instead of contributing to the plot, it ended up detracting from it. The author could have achieved the same literary e [...]

    9. O Codex 632 foi o 1º livro de José Rodrigues dos Santos que li, e provavelmente será o mais conhecido do seu reportório. Infelizmente é imediatamente perceptível o seu lado jornalístico de contar uma história. Enormes trechos descritivos, maior importância dada à investigação que ao desenrolar da história e, para além disso, má caracterização de personagens ou personagens que surgem apenas com o intuito de introduzir mais uma longa dissertação histórica.Num estilo mais para o [...]

    10. Apesar das reviews um pouco negativas quanto a este livro, devo dizer que adorei!Identifico-me perfeitamente com a linguagem do autor, especialmente porque não é nenhuma tradução. Deliciou-me a escrita "mesmo à portuguesa", além de que me senti em casa neste todo mundo dos descobrimentos.Penso que o desenrolar da história leva-nos a questionar os nossos próprios conhecimentos sobre esta época e a ver uns pontos que poderão fazer sentido. Apesar da história ser ficcional, a investigaç [...]

    11. Tenho duas coisas a confessar: primeiro, que este pode não ser o meu tipo de livro (aliás, não é mesmo); segundo, só acabei de o ler para não deixar mais um livro a meio.A escrita é acessível, mas a história é maçuda e tem demasiados detalhes. As conversas entre Tomás Noronha e as personagens secundárias são tão grandes como chatas, de tanto pormenor que têm. Verdade que quem é interessado em história e, particularmente, na questão de Colombo, deve adorar: mas a população em [...]

    12. Le premier de sa série d'enquêtes historiques, Codex nous en apprend des tonnes sur Christophe Colomb et on en ressort intrigué. Pour les amants de dos Santos. (Son meilleur reste La formule de Dieu).

    13. Questo è uno dei libri peggiori che io abbia letto. Quando l'ho acquistato speravo di leggere un libro con uno sfondo storico, poi quando ho letto che si trattava di un romanzo thriller basato su documenti storici mi sono entusiasmata. L'inizio è avvincente, ottimo per convincerti ad arrivare ad una spirale senza fine di eventi inutili. Per quanto, infatti, usi documenti storici tutto il libro è un continuo ripetersi degli stessi tre testi e delle stesse tre informazioni per riuscire a riempi [...]

    14. „Кодекс 632“ е интересна книга, пълна с исторически факти, което напомня за стила на книгите на Дан Браун, но тук е извършена доста повече подготовка от към предоставената информация за събитията и лицата, които описва. Размерът на историческото изследване и информацията, к [...]

    15. Não posso dizer que a escrita me tenha agradado, mas era o que estava à espera: objetiva e sem rodeios, como a de um jornalista. Porém, em livros como este isso é irrelevante uma vez que a originalidade da história é o que interessa e posso dizer que essa vingou tudo o resto que possa ter sido menos negativo.Houve etapas da leitura que gostei mais e outras que gostei menos. A princípio estava entusiasmada para saber o que ia sair dali mas, mais a meio já não tive assim tanta vontade de [...]

    16. I listened to this an audiobook - I always say this because I think that inevitably it has an effect on your experience with the book.I enjoyed some aspects of this book, but the basic plot points seem too basic for me. Almost everything I would expect to have happen ended up happening. The characters were not deep at all, and the book certainly has a dim view of Americans (at least the ones in the story aren't doing us any favors). I'm not a big flag-waver, but the stereotypes were off-putting. [...]

    17. Depois de ler várias críticas que referiam este livro como o menos interessante de José Rodrigues dos Santos, decidi que seria este livro a marcar a minha estreia com o autor. Sim, eu sei que já vou uns aninhos atrasada.Assim, comecei com baixas expetativas, e talvez tenha sido por isso que gostei do livro.Geralmente, neste tipo de livros, gosto da trama pessoal do investigador principal, mas Tomás Noronha não me cativa de maneira nenhuma. Mas gostei muito da trama da investigação, achei [...]

    18. Um livro que podera nao ser excelente. Mas que e excelente para mim! Adorei ler de novo ao fim de tantos anos. aquele twist final da historia ser publicada em forma de romance por um jornalista escritor esta muito bem conseguido . subi a minha classificacao para CINCO estrelas.Curiosamente, algo de que já não me lembrava já estava presente: aquilo que se transformou numa espécie de marca da escrita deste autor: o conceito de VERDADE.

    19. I hate nothing more than a book where the author condescendingly explains every thought as though his/her reader couldn't keep up with the completely obvious conclusion they wanted you to draw. Because this author does that to an extreme, I can't give it any more than 2 stars, despite it's intriguing proposition of the true identity of Columbus.

    20. Gostei imenso de ler este livro. Apesar do tipo de linguagem mais jornalística com algumas descrições mais supérfulas foi um livro que me prendou e captou toda a atenção mesmo quando não estava a lê-lo. Gosto de livros assim, que me deixam envolvida de tal maneira que mesmo com o livro fechado penso no enredo e vivo a história.Gostei especialmente do modo como começa e do modo como acaba!

    21. Talvez o menos interessante dos livros de José Rodrigues dos Santos. Porque o debate "será Cristóvão Colombo português" não é recente e tanta história assim despejada é exasperante (saliento que tirei uma Licenciatura cheia de História, sou apaixonada por História e pretendo leccioná-la um dia). Tomás Noronha não é propriamente um "herói" cativante.

    22. Reading this book was a waste of time. I kept expecting it to get more exciting, but it didn't. Instead of a "DaVinci Code"-style thriller, it was more of a boring scholarly hunt through old documents. And when the "secret identity of Christopher Columbus" is revealed, I thought "who cares?"

    23. Read this for the research, it's worth it. The plot is kind of weak and the dialogues are somewhat "forced" and boring (this is not a translation problem as I read portuguese original edition), but the historical part justifies reading this book.

    24. Noioso, ripetitivo, inconcludente. Risparmiatevi soldi e tempo, idea buona realizzata nel peggiore dei modi Peccato.

    25. The first 80% of the book was not necessary for the reveal. Writer could have skipped the decoding, the Yiddish lesson, the non existent threat of danger and gone straight to the late professor’s phone records to find the count who just told him the full story in chapter 19 (of 23). Why the count who knew everything and about the evidence needed either the first or second professor is the real mystery. Why would that organization go to such lengths and expense to repeat the research they did n [...]

    26. Book was published in several languages and to my misfortune I have read an uncensored version of it. Clearly the author identifies himself with the main character and tells us all his dirtiest sexual desires, while this book was supposed to be about cracking the code and adventure. Long story short, it was a pitiful imitation of Dan Brown. The plot was quite good to my surprise, but due to repulsive writing style I give it just 1 star.

    27. O livro seria interessante se fosse mais curto e menos repetitivo. Não indicaria a leitura. Ele trata inicialmente sobre o descobrimento do Brasil e depois o foco principal vira a nacionalidade de Cristovão Colombo, entre ambos os assuntos, a vida pessoal do professor e historiador. Fica interessante no fim.

    28. Livro bastante interessante, no qual o autor acaba por expor a sua opinião pessoal sobre o tema. É o primeiro livro da saga, ganha bastante pela novidade no que ao autor diz respeito. O livro perde bastante no que ao seu final diz respeito. Deu a sensação de ser um final inventado à pressa, com alguma mistura de fantasia desnecessária.

    29. This is another of Professor Tomas Noronha's adventures. The author yet again demonstrated with incredible simplicity how history has us fooled. In fact, the facts presented are so detailed that in a few places, the reading gets a little heavy. But overall, it is an eye-opener as to how we can be misled to some beliefs.
