I have to say that the references to COVID seemed like something that for some reason needed to be mentioned from time to time, simply as a reminder of what the world is going through, but with little real impact on the story. I found that it actually detracted from the story, and wondered why it was included in this way.
On the other hand, it was a great read, and I am pleased that Allon lives to fight another day!
I may not finish reading this book. I'm so terribly disappointed. I did like the music.
I decided to finish reading this novel and some of what was missing earlier reappeared. The 20 + chapters before that, though were hard work.
Interesting characters, a riveting plot and hints of world wide current affairs, make this instalment hard to put down.
I always dread the long wait for the next book to be released, but it’s always worth the wait.
Bravo Mr Silva.
I used to be a big fan of Daniel Silva, but never again will I read one of his books.

Whereas Silva's background as a journalist brought his previous novels to life, The Cellist reveals a mastermind who no longer endeavors to (or is no longer able to) distinguish between fact and fiction. Even at Silva's best, he's been unable to resist the temptation to inject himself into his stories. I don't mean in the sense that all authors are reflected in their works; every character, after all, reveals something about its creator. But I've always gotten the impression that Silva is absurdly pleased with himself: little comments here and there throughout the series seem designed to jerk the reader from the narrative and remind them of the genius behind the fiction. And in the case of The Cellist, the fiction simply isn't all that great. I kept waiting for the real Gabriel Allon to show up. About halfway through my slog-of-a-read, I came to the sinking realization that he'd been there all along. And that I no longer care for him. Gabriel hasn't aged well; he's a shell of his former intriguing self. No-- not a shell. A puppet. Gabriel Allon has become little more than the mouthpiece of his creator. The author's prerogative, to be sure. But it's not the reader's joy.
Perhaps it really is time for Gabriel to ride off into the Venetian sunset.
