    3. David Martín is a writer of penny dreadfuls who is offered a huge sum of money to write a book for a French publisher. He can't find any evidence that the publisher actually exists though, and violent things start happening to David's friends and colleagues.I was rocking through the first half of the book, loving Ruiz Zafón's writing, and then I just stopped caring a little over halfway through. I'm not entirely sure what happened. I think I got sick of having absolutely no freaking idea what [...]

    5. The book starts out so well, rich in a character, humor, and a powerful sense of place. It captivated me from the first few pages. I couldn't wait to keep reading. I rewarded myself with it each night. I felt I was reading a truly great book, one I was certain would become a beloved favorite of mine. I was so in love, that I was willing to overlook a nagging flaw -- in a story where language and the craft of writing mean so much, where the writer himself aims a spotlight on authorial laziness (" [...]

    6. David Martin is a pulp fiction writer struggling in life. He went to Barcelona in hope of a better future, and the mysterious man with an unbelievable offer seemed to fulfill his wish. The events after he accepted the offer changed his life forever.The first book, The Shadow of the Wind managed to exceed my expectations. I was a bit reluctant with this second one, but clearly Zafón is one hell of a writer. He once again managed to exceed my expectations. I consider him as one of the best Histor [...]

    7. This book was ALMOST a 5 star read for me. I really, really enjoyed it, and wish that I could give it 5 stars, but I feel like the loose ends were kind of rubber-banded together, rather than tied up all nice and pretty. But first I want to talk about the writing. GOR-GEOUS. Ruiz Zafon captured me with the first paragraph. In fact, while I was reading "What Dreams May Come" right before this, I snuck a peek and then almost didn't put it back down to finish "WDMC". I mean, look at this:"A writer n [...]

    8. لم يفعل ( كارلوس زافون) شيئاً أكثر من أنه قزم نصوص الآخرين بهيبة نص يمرجحك حتى تثمل أعادنا إلا برشلونة مرة أخرى بعد ما صنع منها أيقونة لخيلاته الخصبة في رائعته (ظل الريح) ليصنع منها أيقونة أخرى يتباهي بها وبه بنو جنسه فخراً وزهواً،، ليعيد إلا أذهانهم أنه قادر على إعادة عمالقة [...]

    10. 4.5⭐️Hats off to you, Sir!I love this author so damn much!!!First, let's get the confusion out of the way. The Angel's Game, though the second book to the beautiful Shadow of the Wind, is neither a prequel nor a sequel. Essentially it is a stand-alone story that you can fully enjoy on its own but if you want to get the most out of it and discover all the connections that will enhance your reading experience with the characters, I highly recommend reading them in their publication order and [...]

    12. My, oh my! I had such great expectations from the book - I know, it's not fair - and I was so disappointed about how it ends I actually don't know anymore if I liked it or not.It starts OK, nothing spectacular at the beginning (well maybe that episode when David, a journalist at this point, visits the brothel - I still haven't figured out its connection with the rest of the story ), but after the first quarter it gets better and better. Now a writer, David is asked by a mysterious editor to writ [...]

Cosas extrañas comenzaran a suceder en la vida de Martin que lo llevaran a preguntarse si el símbolo del patrón debería ser un ángel [...]

    14. More like a 4.5 stars but still really, really good. I couldn't get enough of this book. It has the delightfully gothic elements that Ruiz Zafón does so well: mysterious figures, creepy mansions, blood and mist, and the eerie atmosphere of Barcelona at night. And of course, the importance of books in the story makes it quite an enjoyable read.The story follows David Martin, a writer for a newspaper and penny dreadfuls who gets sucked into a creepy plot with a figure called "the boss" who employ [...]

    15. When I'm reading something good, or even decent, I'll find myself reading just a few more pages when I should be doing housework or some other exciting chore. When I find myself finding all sorts of creative ways to waste time without even thinking of picking up my book, I know it's time to give up on it.Too bad -- I really liked The Shadow of the Wind. But unfortunately, like the sequel to The Pillars of the Earth, I think the author was trying too hard to recreate his own success at the expens [...]

    16. Overall a well-told story with a clever and original plot. David Martin is a struggling author living in poverty in the seedy depths of Barcelona. He receives an irresistible offer of 100,000 francs to write a book for a creepy man he begins referring to as "the boss." After accepting the offer Martin starts research on the designated topic, triggering a series of strange happenings. He knows he is being "played" and used, but he doesn't know why or by whom. Things just get more and more siniste [...]

    17. The Angel's Game actually takes place in the same area of Barcelona as SOTW. Set in the period just before the civil war that leads up to SOTW. The main character is David Martin, who at the beginning of book is working at a newspaper & gets his chance to be a writer. Soon with the help of of his friend & mentor, Perdo Vidal, he is able to lift himself out of poverty & start writing for a living.He soon leaves the newspaper & starts writing pulp fiction under a pseudonym for a le [...]

    19. 4.5*Foi o segundo livro que li de C.R.Záfon e começo a reconhecer-lhe o estilo gótico e misterioso, com alguns apontamentos de sobrenatural que imprime aos seus romances. Parece ser uma receita vencedora já que os livros vendem-se como pãezinhos quentes. E com razão, em mais de 500 páginas não encontrei uma que fosse aborrecida ou me desse vontade de pousar o livro. Pelo contrário; cozinhei com ele na mão, comi com ele na mão, ignorei a malta à minha volta e só não li e dormi ao me [...]

    20. Last night, I listened to the end of this audiobook with tears in my eyes. I won't easily forget those last scenes. My favorite parts of this story were the visits to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books. I love the idea of a place where: "Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The first time someone visits this place, he must choose a book and adopt it, making sure that it will never disappear, that it will always stay alive." Just reading those sentences makes my soul sigh with contentm [...]

    21. Este es un libro que disfruté mucho, desde las primeras páginas te absorbe eso que pronto te darás cuenta que es la prosa de Zafon. Te recuerda en seguida a la sombra del viento pero con un tono más adulto, el tema a tratar y los dilemas de David Martín son quizás más oscuros que los de Daniel Sampere. En mi caso esto supo atrapar mi atención.La historia comienza muy bien, pero a medida que avanza se vuelve cada vez más pesada, el misterio es muy grande y todo se resuelve muy pronto en [...]

    22. Do you love a book that has people dying in fetid pools, rotting in chambers, burned alive?Do you love gothic novels that leave you feeling bleaker than you did when you sat down to read with your bag of microwave popcorn?Do you love books that attack belief systems by dismissing the supernatural, and then indulge in the supernatural?I don't. Don't get me wrong--I don't mind sorrow in a story, or the vestiges of tragedy, or philosophy, or heavy emotional lifting. But Zafon's writing was too good [...]

    23. Once more, Zafon takes his readers to a thrilling ride into a web of stories. And any ride with Zafon is guaranteed to be breathtaking.In the Angel's Game, Zafon has again exhibited his specialty in leading his readers into a series of intricate stories. He makes sure his readers enter that labyrinth of events so engrossed that they would hardly feel that they have been sucked into it. But great Zafon makes sure that his readers come out of it safe. He really has that talent of giving little une [...]

    24. Imagine a book that is a mystery with the sensibility of a gothic horror but is also a story about loyalty and friendships, and love and betrayal. How can one book be so many things and not feel like a gigantic mess? Well in the hands of Carlos Ruiz Zafón it seems such feats are indeed possible. 'The Angel's Game' is the second book in his The Cemetery of Forgotten Book series following on from my much loved The Shadow of the Wind. But it's not a direct sequel. It's a prequel but can very much [...]

    25. هي مالهاش علاقة بظل الريح, اللي ماقرأهاش خالص يقدر يبدأ فيها بسهولة.مزيج من جمال أسلوب ظل الريح و تعقيدات و حبكات ايكو ـ بس بشكل مفهوم ـجميلة جدا.

    26. I am a patient reader. I can cope with ambiguity and digression. I enjoy ornate prose and the occasional serving of melodrama. I don't need each and every element of a plot spelled out for me. This means that I loved (almost) every over-the-top melodramatic moment of the first in Carlos Ruiz Zafon's "Cemetery of Lost Books" series, The Shadow of the Wind. Reading that novel, I was carried away to Barcelona during the Spanish Civil War and thoroughly enjoyed Ruiz Zafon's magical prose. My overwhe [...]
