I was a little disappointed in this book, mainly because I liked shadow of the wind so much. This one didn't hold together as well. I got the message about how religions are used, but it just seemed a little heavy handed.

This is the best book I've read all year -- I enjoyed it even more than "Shadow of the Wind". There are some similarities -- we revisit the Cemetery of Forgotten Books once more -- and the story is again designed to appeal to those who love books. The characters are well drawn, Barcelona is so well-described you almost feel like you've been there, and the plot keeps you guessing right up until the final "ah-ha!" moment on the last page. Very highly recommended.

It's books like this that remind me why I love books.

Although this is book #2 in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books trilogy, it's really a prequel to the fabulous Shadow of the Wind. It is as beautifully written as the first book with thought provoking views of love, literature and revenge set in Barcelona in the first half of the 20th century. Barcelona itself is as much a character in the books as any of the protagonists. Both these books are a pleasure to read and I look forward to reading the last book as well.

A gothic tale - longwinded and engrossing - in which the city of Barcelona is as much a character as the people you meet within its pages. Long but never boring!

Fave! I had to stop twice on the first page alone to quote to my husband. This is one of those rare books that I needed to get out a highlighter and mark passages. The text is so beautiful, and the story kept me on the edge of my seat. Very "Lovecraftian." I very much enjoyed Zafon's Shadow of the Wind, but this takes the cake! Love!

A piece of literary fiction that takes the reader into the streets of Barcelona and behind the scenes of underground publishing and the newspaper industry. With Daniel Martin as our guide, the author takes the reader along to see Martin grow up and find his true calling as a writer. There are definitely some interesting characters along the way, a few that I fell in love with and wanted more from - Isabella captured my attention!
