My Review | The Shadow of the Wind

The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books,  #1)The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My new favorite book. It is hard to sum up the plot. But basically it’s about a boy and a book from at the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and it’s about the boy’s life and the author of the book’s life. There is loads of mysterious intrigue, amazingly awesome and funny characters, romance, lost romance, side trips, twists and turns, fantasy, mystery, a dude with no face, scary bad guys, a scary mansion, tension, and an historical Barcelona backdrop. I loved every minute of this adventure. This book has sold 15 million copies worldwide; one of the most popular books of all-time. The author, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, and this book are compared to Umberto Eco and “The Name of the Rose.” The Shadow of the Wind is better. The Daily Telegraph wrote, “The Shadow of the Wind is a triumph of the storyteller’s art. I couldn’t put it down. Enchanting, hilarious and heartbreaking, this book will change your life.”
