Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery of l ost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles tha t have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-ye ar-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choos e one book from the shelves and pulls out 'La Sombra del Viento' by Ju lian Carax. But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately inter ested in his find. Then, one night, as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a char acter from La Sombra del Viento, a character who turns out to be the d evil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in ord er to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns int o a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Car ax and to save those he left behind. A page-turning exploration of obs ession in literature and love, and the places that obsession can lead.

I read The Shadow of the Wind in Spanish so I’m not sure how much that significant/insignificant matter really mattered in case of this book. But I’ve heard no complaints regarding it so I suppose the translator have done a fine job.
I wasn’t sure about this book, see… I’ve never been so hot on Spanish writers. Why would you ask? Well, while living in Chile, my country of birth, you get to read all these supposed super-writers, all from Spain of course, and to tell you the truth if you don’t like to read in old-Spanish language then it’s not a pleasure to do it just cus you need the grade.
Anyway, Zafón doesn’t write in old-spanish and this book is excellent. Read it, enjoy it and tell every friend and enemy about it. They’ll for sure thank you!

PS. I saw The Shadow of the Wind related to the much commented, hyped and ultra sold “Da Vinci Code”. Please do not believe such depravity. Nothing again wannabe author Dan Brown, just he is way far from writing such a good book as The Shadow of the Wind.

Överskattad bok. Ibland tråkig att läsa. Stundtals rolig. Ibland skriver Carlos mästerligt ibland liknar det mycket ungdomsbok. Orealistiska karaktärer.
