"Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you."Well, I wonder then what part of me I saw inside this book - a book I adored despite its imperfections, despite its frequent veering into melodrama, despite (or maybe because of?) its densely Gothic atmosphere. Whatever it...

“Madmen always think it's the others who are mad.”........................... Read for book club, okay, probably would have never chosen this myself, so okay, I read it.

Not as good as 1 but better than 2. Liked the ending. This is another excellent book by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. He is quite simply an excellent story teller.

I totally enjoyed all three books in the Shadow of the Wind Trilogy . In fact I love all Ruiz Zafons work , I read Shadow years ago and it was the first book I read after a break in reading for a couple of years once I read it I couldn't wait for more of his work to be published in uk. Each book...

While Zafon's prose is still as lyrical and beautiful as I waxed over in my review for the Shadow of the Wind, I did not enjoy this particular book as much as I did the previous.I think, maybe it was because I was a bit unsatisfied with the ending. For one thing, am not sure what that ending wa...

Carlos Ruiz Zafon has made a name for himself writing popular magical realist novels set in the murky Barcelona of the 20's to the 40's. The central themes always revolve around books, their authors and how a book reveals its authors soul. What this book reveals about Zafon is disappointing. D...

Wow--what can I say about this complex and intriguing work?!I absolutley loved "Shadow of the Wind," and while "Angel" took a while to build up steam for me, I became equally entranced.There is a lot of "magical realism" in this book. but i takes us a while to figure that out. Ruiz Zafon's belove...

It is refreshing to once again walk the familiar streets of Barcelona, with known characters doing what they do best. The Prisoner of Heaven is a much better book compared to the previous release. Once again we follow the lives of Daniel and his friends, but in this case Daniel takes a back seat ...

2nd novel. not nearly as good as 1st. Best part was (I finally figured out at the end :( ) it predates the 1st: Daniel Sempere and Sons bookshop returns and the "son" Daniel never married...this is Daniel's (from 1st novel)'s Dad. This main character David Martin introduces Isabella to the "son."...
