In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man - David Martin - makes his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym. The survivor of a troubled childhood, he has taken refuge in the world of books, and spends his nights spinning baroque tales about the city's underworld. But perhaps his dark imaginings are not as strange as they seem, for in a locked room deep within the house letters hinting at the mysterious death of the previous owner. Like a slow poison, the history of the place seeps into his bones as he struggles with an impossible love. Then David receives the offer of a lifetime: he is to write a book with the power to change hearts and minds. In return, he will receive a fortune, perhaps more. But as David begins the work, he realises that there is a connection between this haunting book and the shadows that surround his home...

”El Juego Del Angel” or “The Angel’s Game” is a satisfactory read until the last 100 pages. At moments I even felt I was reading a story equally amazing to the one of “The Shadow of the Wind”, but those last 100 pages, at least for me, spoiled a great deal of the pleasure Carlos Ruiz Zafón offers with his beautiful prose and gothic Barcelona mysteries.
Whether you love the entire book or have, in a way, the same opinion I have, those last 100 pages leave as many unanswered questions as dead people, both unnecessary.
Why degrade the book to the level of a cheap thriller spilling so much blood?
Why complicate the compelling story of David Martin with characters that added very little to the main story?
Who is who?
These are few of the questions I hope Carlos Ruiz Zafón can clarify in the two books that are left of the “The Cemetery of Forgotten Books” series. I will definitely read the next book and I hope that the many negative critics ”The Angel’s Game” has gotten help him to create a story that is equally or better than “The Shadow of the Wind”.
