DNF I asked for the book as a present from my parents when it came out back in so that I could take it with me on my vacation. This was nearly 15 years ago but I remember stubbornly giving it three different, very separate tries before finally giving up for good.
I was determined back then to finish every single book I started, more so with this book since it came from my parents at my request, but I couldn’t manage.

This is my third from Perez-Reverte, and the other two were significantly better. His voice is definitely there. As soon as I began reading, I recognized his voice.
His writing transports the reader into another time and place, accompanied by a mysteriously intriguing aura that his words produce; an apprehensive, curious, but always with a tinge of the medieval.
The problem here was the plot. It was not really interesting at all, did not really se This was actually quite the disappointing novel. It was not really interesting at all, did not really seem to go anywhere, and was pretty much completely predictable from the beginning of the book.
In fact, it would have been completely predictable by synopsis alone. To summarize this in a couple paragraphs.
Coy is a dedicated, heartfelt, relentless, and seasoned sailor, more comfortable at sea on the esrerica water than on land socializing artuto others. As a consequence of some negligence on a previous expedition, he has been grounded to land for a few years. Living off of savings, unemployed, and at a loss with what to do with his days, he fortunately unfortunately?
He becomes knowingly have sex with her, which leads to him knowingly being foolish enough to be willing to follow her to the ends of the earth, simply for the possibility of spending more time with her. This is despite the less than ideal treatment he receives from her, which in a word, is bitchy.
He follows after her esrerica if he has no power over his own mind, pretty much doing anything he is told. Worst yet, she offers no apologies for the way she acts.
She is the unspoken leader of this expedition, in search of the sunken ship, Dei Gloria.
It is supposedly full of clear cut emeralds, worth somewhere in the hundred millions. She unashamedly manipulates Coy into taking her there, purposefully withholding the cards she finds most valuable, revealing others intermittently.
The Nautical Chart
But only by her agenda. And when she showed some vulnerability, reaching out to him, Coy “has never before felt like he was raped by a woman”.
She makes love to him, someone she is fully aware is in love with her, without even looking at him, but cafta him. This, among so many other things, makes her a completely unlikeable protagonist, which does not bode well for a reader trying to connect with the characters.
Other characters are a couple treasure hunters trying to stop the two of them a esfwrica of violencescholars and professors in cartography and nautical studies, and El Piloto, the captain of the Sailboat they take. The rest of the many hundreds of pages is full of nautical terms, cartography vernacular, and fictional historical information on the Jesuit ship.
Unless one is very familiar with the terms, or has aturo higher than average interest in both fields. Even then, they are not explain to the reader are very well. It was like academic writing, where it was assumed the reader was already knowledgeable in the basics.
Like most of the population, I know close to nothing about these fields, and my excitement to learn more about it and be immersed in the world so that I cagta have a better grasp on the subculture was defused rather quickly.
Most of it went over my head. I began to be greatly relieved whenever the specific discussions of longitude, latitude, knots, ships, etcetera ended and returned to story narration. But it was not long before the academic discussions began again in earnest. A few hundred pages later, the team of three is still searching.
Whether they actually find the sunken ship full of emeralds in the end is actually irrelevant. Each of the characters has their own reasons for being on the expedition, none of which the riches from The Dei Gloria can fulfill for them. As soon as the three amigos commenced with their final expedition- their final attempt- to uncover the lost ship, I thoroughly loved what I was reading. If only the rest of the book was not lackluster in comparison.
Things moved along for these last thirty or so pages at a satisfying pace, with substantial suspense, and concluded with an ending that I really appreciated. Although much of the writing and story conclusion compensated for other less stellar aspects, readers would be better served trying another of his works.

The Nautical Chart follows the same pattern as many of his other books- the woman who lures our unsuspecting, unassuming man into a mystery, his unfortunate life before that, the strong link to and nostalgia for the past, the promise of redemption, all woven into a beautifully done character study. I will admit that this is the most unabashedly formulaic and predictable of his books, which is why I give it only three stars.
However, his formula is one that is ideally built to please me aside from my past described issues with his “dark lady” complex, but I have much less of an issue with that than with drowning Ophelias, soso I don’t take issue with it.
The protagonist of this piece is a down and out sailor, who ends in helping a mysterious woman find maps that will supposedly lead to buried treasure. Our protagonist is somewhat subdued, more inclined to watch the world than participate in it, due to past trauma. I appreciated his return to “living,” as slowly and painfully drawn from him as it was. The female character is obviously a stereotypical dark lady, and she’s quite easy to predict, but her journey is still touching, and I was still able to become absorbed in the book, however slow it might be to others.
I found it more thoughtful than enthralling, which is certainly not what I generally expect from a Perez-Reverte, but that doesn’t make it a bad thing. I read this so long ago, I would have to read it again to recall the subtle details that I liked specifically, but I do generally remember that Reverte’s deft atmospheric touch was there, his ability to make the gothic seem every day, his way of making his character seem to step out of 19th century dreams without being overly campy about it, his ability to draw a well done character study into an adventure story.
I would recommend this to those who already love Reverte’s work, not to newcomers. He’s capable of much better, and I wouldn’t want anyone to walk away thinking that this is his best. On the cover of this edition is a blurb from The Washington Post: There is not a whit of swashbuckle herein – and I was looking forward to just that. Unfortunately, swashbuckling isn’t the only thing missing. His prose is still interesting. The story line was organized in such a way as to make what could have been a thriller almost predictable.
I guess it On the cover of this edition is a blurb from The Washington Post: I guess it should be acknowledged that even good authors strike out now and then. So, just a dud. It certainly sits at the bottom of that pile. Still, it won’t deter me from picking up another by this author. I tried, I really did. But after pages, I had to put it down and move onto some more exciting books.

And then I came back for another 60 pages only to dread the idea of trudging on for another A woman is looking for a shipwreck. She recruits a man to help her. They talk about the ship. They talk about the sea. The man muses to himself about the sea. He finally does punch someone, but even that manages not to be very exciting.
