    1. Non delude, ma poco più Lo consiglio a chi già conosce l'autore. In linea di massima preferisco altri suoi titoli. Tre storie che si intrecciano su di un unica trama, come Cooper ci ha abituato, nel complesso lettura interessante, scorre molto bene ma non coinvolge più di tanto, non ci lasci avvicinare troppo ai personaggi. L'ambientazione romana, scelta quasi obbligata visto la trama basata sulla chiesa/vaticano, per i lettori italiani potrebbe essere considerata poco "esotica" in tutti i ca [...]

    2. Me gustó muchísimo este libro, dado que entrelaza tres líneas de tiempo.Algunas personas me han dicho que puede ser algo enredado, pero pienso que una vez ya sabes en qué línea de tiempo estás situado no hay ningún problema.

    3. The Devil Will Come is a conspiracy thriller for adults, laced with historical fact and fiction. The present-day setting is Rome, Italy, where a young nun and her family become the focal point of the culmination of a centuries-long plot to end Catholicism and replace it with an evil-worshiping group of psychopaths. Okay, yes, historical-conspiracy thriller plots can sound absurd, but with a skilful writer in charge, they can be very entertaining, and little bit edifying. This author is skilled i [...]

    4. “The Devil Will come” was published in 2014 and was written by Glenn Cooper (glenncooperbooks). Mr. Cooper has published 7 novels. I obtained a galley of this novel for review through netgalley. I would categorize this novel as ‘R’ as there are instances of Violence and some Mature Language. This Thriller novel is set primarily in Rome, Italy. Different scenes in the novel are in contemporary times, the century after Jesus Christ was crucified, and in London of the 1500s. The primary cha [...]

    5. That feeling that one day you're gonna want those hours back. The hours you spent on this one after the first time it was clear that this one turned on nasty people, with tails. After you immediately then thought, 'well, how do they sit down?' 'Do they only 'mate' with others with tails?' 'How do they find them?' Etc.That.You can dress it up all you like with scenes set in the Roman period of Nero's Emperorship (yes, he was as well), or sections based around (yes, him too) Christopher (though ac [...]

    6. Ho sospiratoQuando leggo non lo faccio mai perchè sono completamente persa in un luogo nuovo, in una nuova storia.Ma stavolta la magia non mi ha colpito e mentre leggevo sospiravo chiedendomi "arriverò mai alla fine?"Faccio fatica a capire il perchè non sia scattata la scintilla, gli ingredienti per un bel romanzo c'erano tutti: una setta misteriosa, ritrovamenti archeologici, complotti A parte un forte senso di deja-vu per la somiglianza in molti punti con Angeli e demoni di Dan Brown, potev [...]

    7. Following a cave-in within the catacombs beneath Rome, Elisabetta Celestino is brought back into a world she left behind ten years ago. This world is overshadowed by a conspiracy that is thousands of years old, and a prophecy about to be fulfilled.The Devil Will Come was a fun book to read, it jumped from modern times to first century Rome and then to Elizabethan England. I love a book that pulls in historical and archaeological elements; it creates a tangible connection to the story, making it [...]

    8. As a young archaeology student Elisabetta Celestino discovers an interesting array of symbols at a catacomb adjacent to the Vatican. Needing Vatican approval to go ahead with her research and reulting thesis, she is informed by her professor that no such approval will be forthcoming. Ten years later Elisabetta, now a nun, is contacted by the same professor to ask for her help with an excavation of the same catacombs. Reluctantly she agrees. What she discovers not only rocks her faith but could a [...]

    9. 'The Devil Will Come' takes a new twist on the Malachy prophecy! omg!! I was just blown away by Glenn Cooper coming up with such a refreshing NEW angle and plot! Without giving away any spoilers it sure gave me something to think about as I read a bit in the paper about the internal fight going on right now in the Vatican. The last Pope is supposed to be (according to the prophecy) whomever follows our current Pope. Reading this story and following what is actually occurring well it's enough to [...]

    10. I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other Cooper novels I've read. On the plus side, Cooper featured a nun as the heroine of the story - it was nice to read about a strong female as the main character of a 'thriller' for a change. However, this was ruined somewhat with a suggested love interest that never went anywhere. What I didn't like was that in some parts of the book there was unneccessary violence - not just describing, for expample, that someone was shot, but going into gory details [...]

    11. Do the devil’s children walk among us waiting for their chance to control the human race after the down fall of the Catholic Church? Elisabetta an archaeologist turned nun knows the secret and with the help of family and friends tries to stop the downfall of the church after the pope dies. When the conclave begins to elect the new pope they are up against time to stop the collapse of a faith that has been around for thousands of years. A great story line with strong characters, I did struggle [...]

    12. Un thriller histórico bastante llamativo, complots en la iglesia, asesinatos, una profecía a cumplirse según las estrellas, todo esto envuelto en varias historias narradas y a su vez envueltas tan correctamente que te atrapa, es mi segundo libro de este autor y definitivamente me gusta como escribe! El mal encarnado. El final me dejo *0* bastante recomendable.Frase: —Siempre hablamos del Diablo —dijo—, pero incluso para mí, quesoy bastante literal en mis creencias y en la interpretaci [...]

    13. It would be too easy to give away spoilers for this book, so I will summarise with "The modern Church is under threat by an old enemy and an old prophesy". Very well written with fine character and location descriptions. Highly recommended. I would have given it 5* but I found the title caused disapproving looks from the general public when I was reading it in a public place. I felt strangely embarrassed.

    14. I loved all of his previous works, so this one should go right up there with them. It starts off pretty good, cannot wait to get into it more. Only at chapter two, and love it so far.WOW! Great book. I loved it thoroughly. From cover to cover, this one kept me turning the pages much like the previous works. Fantastic.

    15. I prefer Cooper's earlier efforts, but this wasn't bad at all. The plot stretches through about 2000 years, and the most interesting parts of this story takes place during the reign of Nero and in Elizabetan England. The parts set in modern day Rome aren't all that interesting, and our heroine - a nun - is not a very interesting character. I hope Cooper's next book is better than this one

    16. It was alright, quick read, bit predictable but the idea behind the story was a lot of fun and I loved the links to Nero and Faust!

    17. Exciting .I found this book exciting from beginning to end. It was a great read. The Vatican, spies, murder, wow. Right up my alley.

    18. Quando i diavoli ci mettono codaQuesta è una storia da cui non sono riuscita a staccarmi dalla lettura: affonda le radici nell'antica Roma dove addirittura l'imperatore Nerone non era quello che sembrava,passa dall'Inghilterra con lo scrittore drammaturgo del Faust,Marlowe,fino ad arrivare ai giorni nostri con una specie di setta che ha base in Slovenia e che si appresta a far crollare la Chiesa,il tutto sulla base della profezia di Malachia.A combattere tutto questo ci sono un'archeologa suora [...]

    19. El autor cuenta la historia de una secta conspirativa malvada desde los tiempos de Nerón, San Malaquías, Maria Estuardo y la, más o menos, actualidad con la muerte de un Papa y la realización de un nuevo cónclave. Por momentos me hizo acordar a "Angeles y Demonios" de Dan Brown pero está mucho mejor.Es entretenida y ágil. La protagonista es una monja pero con pasado.Como siempre digo, si le hubiera puesto un poquito de sexo estaría perfecta. Y posibilidades tenía porque los malos son mu [...]

    20. Excelente, simplemente muy bueno!Un viaje perfecto, 3 épocas distintas unidas por una sola razón, una profecía!Narrativa adecuada; ambientación, personajes, situaciones, suspenso, todo utilizado y combinado en el momento perfecto.Un final muy bueno que deja claro que la guerra continúa, y al final son ideologías las que se siguen enfrentando, ideologías que se materializan cuando el fanatismo se involucra.

    21. Il diavolo esiste, ed anche la sua proleClassica trama di Glenn Cooper con storia strutturata su differenti piani temporali, in cui le vicende storiche esplicano ed infittiscono i misteri che i protagonisti contemporanei si trovano rocambolescamente a fronteggiare. A livello di articolazione ricorda molto la serie della biblioteca dei morti e della mappa del destino, ma fascino e spessore sono molto minori. Forse sarà perché ho odiato i personaggi di Marlowe e Nerone, forse perché avrei prefe [...]

    22. Sensacyjno-fantastyczna książka umieszczona w jakże poczytnym nurcie pt.: "tajemnice chrześcijaństwa i kościoła". Jeżeli komuś przypadły do gustu "Anioły i demony" to powinien się w zupełności odnaleźć. Dobrze się czyta. Są oczywiście ci źli, są ci dobrzy oraz ci pośrodku. Wartka akcja pozwala na przyjemne odstresowanie się od prozy dnia codziennego.

    23. Un po' Angeli e Demoni.Forse per la trama e l'ambientazione, mi ha ricordato un po' Angeli e demoni di Dan Brown, a chi piace il genere piacerà anche questo libro, molto scorrevole, godibilissimo.Bello come gli altri libri di Glenn Cooper, che non delude mai ;)

    24. I must say based on the reviews I had read I wasn't too sure about this book but it was actually much better than I imagined! I happened to like the mix of history and periods of literature contrasted with the present day.

    25. Un thriller scritto molto bene, che quasi mi ha tenuta col fiato sospeso. Tuttavia, il piccolo dettaglio al centro della trama mi è sembrato un po' ridicolo e non plausibile, almeno in un libro di questo genere.Bello il finale a sorpresa.

    26. Se entrelazan tres historias en distintas épocas. Me han gustado mucho las que se sitúan en la época romana y la del siglo XVI en Londres, pero la que se desarrolla en la actualidad no me ha gustado tanto.

    27. Interesting Good characters, love the nun, and her family, friends. Scary to think evil exists and people have seen it .

    28. Di tutto, di più. Anche troppo, per i miei gusti.Qualcuno sostiene che Cooper è un genio. Anche secondo me. Perché bisogna essere un genio per mandare a ramengo idee così carine cercando di strafare.Non parlo di idee originali o fantastiche, ma di idee che comunque, già da sole, potrebbero offrire qualcosa di piacevole. Invece no, Cooper le infarcisce di ogni cosa, personaggi storici, eventi mitici e quant'altro finendo per far pensare al lettore 'che americanata', se è gentile, se non lo [...]
