The Latinist: A Novel Free Audiobook Download by Mark Prins
The Latinist: A Novel is a dense, powerful and interesting work of historical fiction by Dutch author Mark Prins. The story follows the life of a young engineer, as he navigates his way through the Netherlands during World War II and its aftermath in his search for knowledge.
Mark Prins' debut novel starts when his protagonist, Felix, walks into a class of introductory Latin. He's in his second year of college, and he's never even heard of the language before. However, he soon falls under the spell of the language that isn't used in any other modern language—latin. It is a harsh but beautiful language full of passion, fire and Latin names that are impossible to pronounce with their letters as they're not even found in any modern alphabet.
Mark Prins deftly weaves together the political, cultural, and personal histories of Spain, Germany, and the United States from 1910 to 2010, in a work of novel which also functions as an introduction to Latin American history.
Mark Prins' magnum opus, The Latinist is an achingly beautiful novel about the last days of both a civilization and a narrator.
The Latinist is a story about the life of a high school Latin teacher, who finds himself stuck in the past while trying to keep his modern teaching methods. It's set in 1968, and the focus is on a boy, Johnny, who is part of the Cuban Revolution. The novel follows Johnny as he turns to politics and eventually becomes an activist.
The Latinist is the first novel in Mark Prins's "Spies Against Armageddon" series. It was released on May 10, 2015, and features a cast of six characters who have been given the task of finding a way to stop an artificial intelligence known as 'The Latinist' from taking over humanity.
