Ck out of this bookDaniel I immediately connected with his character especially his love for that book because I think we all have that love for a certain book so I definitely got where he was coming from with that He was such a charming character and it was very interesting watching him grow up from a child to a teen slowly starting adulthood His interaction with different characters completely showed what ind of person he was Like when he goes to see Cara Who is blind sits and reads with her and he just does nice stuff Always seems to get punched for it likeJuli n he is I would say the other main character in this story and he is such an enigma and he is so fascinating and I love it I think along with Daniel I fell in love with the man from him Like he was so amazing and there is so much I want to say because I don t want to spoil it So that s all I can say about him because spoilerI loved all the characters in this book and I thought that they all had a nice part in the book and I liked them all well except the certain person who did the certain thing to a certain person See the spoiler problemI can t really say anything else about this book I may have to do a spoiler review on youtube Would you all like that Would you like to hear about my thoughts on this with spoilers Let me now I write about this book because I loved it and I want to remember it In writing I am forced to reflect upon how much pleasure I derived from reading the bookIt is a gothic tale set in 1945 Barcelona Daniel the bookseller s son is introduced to The Cemetery of Forgotten Books and makes his selection of one book from the labyrinth to take home and care for In doing so he finds himself involved in a real life mystery You see the book he selected was written by a man named Julian Carax and very well may be the last book in existence by Carax Someone has been finding the Carax works and destroying themI love that it is a book about a book I love the story but I also love the writing itself and how Zafon has a style that makes me want to eep reading The man is a beautiful writer The Angel of the Mist story that begins on page 233 is a haunting touch as is Maria Jacinta s detailing of her encounters with Zacarias begin on page 260 and the storyline of Daniel and Fermin visiting her in the asylumI loved this first book so much that I immediately started reading the second book in the series and I am about 200 pages in to The Angel s Game right now To think I found this gorgeous read because of a visit to the Book Warehouse over the July 4 weekend where I unwittingly purchased the third book in the series first I gave this read a little over 100 pages and stopped to consult some reviews Negative reviews the very few of them reflected my perspective and as such I didn t see the issues I was having with the book changing so I called itIn spite of the flowery adjective filled writing substance is lacking The plot is slow it s hard to feel engaged with the characters and the mystery is boring I searched the reviews for page turner prior to purchase We must have been reading different books because this my friends is NOT a page turner It is actually the ind of book you pick up the next day start to read and realize you have forgotten where the character is now who he is having a conversation with etcThis is all subjective of course What inspired me to actually leave a negative review was the depiction of women in the story Female characters are either presented as large busted maternal old maids or alternatively described in terms of their waist of a manneuin classically proportioned calves or china doll s complexion By the end of my valiant 100 pages every time a new female doll s complexion By the end of my valiant 100 pages every time a new female my eyes were already half rolled in preparation I came across this book by chance in a charity shop and the premise of a library of forgotten books is what prompted me to read it I m so glad I did it s a book unlike anything I ve ever read before The author s evocative descriptions bring the images alive in my mind and the story just absorbed me from the start I couldn t read it fast enough Have now also read the

The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Book 1)ThThis is my first Carlos Ruiz Zafon novel but I can promise it won t be my last I truly enjoyed this novel It is very well written and plotted and totally without any wasted words That s a real achievement for a novel this long The suspense and intrigue start immediately with this book and the level of excitement continues throughout the novel The use of language is beautiful and Mr Zafon really nows how to turn a phrase as it were What s wrong with him I could tell you it s his heart but what is really illing him is loneliness Memories are worse than bullets The Shadow of the Wind written by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and translated by Lucia Graves was an absolutely beautiful book to read and savour I am in such awe of the flowing vivid and rich details in this novel and I must applaud Lucia Graves for her skill in her translation The Shadow of the Wind is hard to define to one specific genre although it is classed as historical fiction I personally felt that it was of a bildungsroman with a crime thriller twist to it The story follows Daniel Sempere from a young boy as he first enters the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and chances upon a novel written by Julien Carax He then embarks upon a journey throughout the years to uncover the truth about the author Through this journey we watch Daniel and those closest to him experience loneliness forbidden love prejudice and lost friendships Barcelona is shown to be a perfect gothic backdrop to this and I loved visualising all the descriptions Whilst Daniel was my favourite character it was Fermin Romero de Torres who I found the most entertaining as his humour really cut through the somber chapters He was always so eccentric and crude but he surely had a heart of gold and was just loveableFumero the main villain of the book was one to really despise He was an awful and malicious character whom I loved to hate I did find that in the middle of the book the story did start to drag a bit the pace slowed down a bit too much for my liking However I didn t mind too much as I think my favourite aspect of this book was the rich writing that was full of similes and metaphors which were incredibly perfect I seriously could have included so many uotes in this review There were so many descriptions about books and the readers enjoyment of them This is definitely a book for all book lovers Within the first 6 pages of this book I fell in love Like this doesn t usually happen to me I don t usually fall in love with a book or writer that uick it usually takes a lot longer than it did Within 6 pages I had fallen madly in love with this I think it was definitely the writing something about it I don t think I can explain the feeling with this book I wanted to devour it all at once and then I also wanted to save it I did manage to drag out the reading of this book a little But honestly the whole writing it was perfect I think I can only describe it like that As you can tell I m totally fangirling over this I had to take a few hours break so I could like gather thoughts a few hours later I m still fangirling It was so perfect I just wanted to make a note about Carlos Ruiz Zafon s writing I am in loveThe book is set in parts as well as I am in loveThe book is set in parts as well as the parts give you an idea of the date that that part of the story is set in as it does span over a few years from Daniel being a child to going into teenage adult times It also covers the time span of Juli n and his story so it does make it clear and there are ways you now when certain things happen for example when a character tells a story you Tacos know it is a story As I said there is little signs of changes of time and topic or plot within the story So it makes it easier to recogniseAs the blurb said it follows Daniel as he tries to discover the story of the author who wrote The Shadow of The Wind by Juli n Carax The story was complex but not confusing everything was explained and worked out through the story The plot was so amazing and it draws you in and you just want to turn the page over and over and before younow it you have finished the book I have loads of things I want to say about this book but I also don t want to put spoilers in so I may have to do a video review and fangirl the he.
