The Shadow of the Wind

The Shadow of the Wind The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón


My review


rating: 4 of 5 stars
I found this to be a lovely book and really enjoyed it. It's the first "page turner" I've read in a long, long time. I had a little trouble with the resolution of the mystery, but because I was already so charmed by the book, I was able to suspend my disbelief and let it go. As others have mentioned, I wish I had a "Cemetery of Forgotten Books" to go to. I had the opportunity to visit Barcelona last year, and it was fun to recognize so many of the locales Zafón mentions in The Shadow of the Wind. I would love to go back and explore those streets again.
