Gaarder escribe magnificamente, y combina de modo elegante la historia de amor con las creencias sobrenaturales y los sucesos de la pura y dura realidad. Bergensavisen Steinn y Solrun, que llevan sin verse desde que vivian juntos en los anos setenta, vuelven a encontrarse en la terraza de un antiguo hotel en un fiordo de Noruega. Es curioso su encuentro alli porque, precisamente, fue ese el pueblo en el que, mas de treinta anos antes, tuvieron una experiencia que sacudio sus vidas y acabo por separar a la pareja. Que les paso en aquella epoca? Sus interpretaciones de lo ocurrido difieren radicalmente. Ahora se reabre un dialogo entre dos modos de entender el mundo, y la llama del viejo amor vuelve a prender de nuevo. El castillo de los Pirineos es una novela de amor, pero tambien de ideas. Son la ciencia y la razon lo unico que puede arrojar luz sobre la existencia humana, o existen ademas fuerzas ocultas que de vez en cuando nos juegan una mala pasada?
