Description

Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery of lost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out 'La Sombra del Viento' by Julian Carax.

But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested 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 character from La Sombra del Viento, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in order to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left behind. A page-turning exploration of obsession in literature and love, and the places that obsession can lead.

Best book ever!!!

If you haven't read or listened The Shadow of Wind, you are missing what is one of the best novels of modern time. Zafon does an spectacular job. Melancholy, Joy, sadness, happiness everything in one place.

Thoroughly enjoyable tale.

After a recent visit to Barcelona I really enjoyed this story, well read, and twisting and turning through the alleys of the old city.

Loved every bit

Wonderful story, very intense but rewarding. And closure at the end which is always good. Lots of sad moments but it was worth it.

For gothic horror and literature fans

This book is for fans of gothic horror with a fixation on poètes maudits. I was glad of the great historical backdrop. The language is brilliant and the English translation is amazing, as well as the performance, which is particularly respectful of accents.

Happy and sad

Amazing book that leads us to love, despair and hope. Sad to finish it. The narrator is so colorful with his voice and interpretation that I will hunt down other books performed by him.

Enchanting story - one of the best

I read this in hardback form years ago and was dubious about this medium but it did not disappoint. Incredibly beautiful story and one I'll go back to again in a few years.
