    3.5 stars. Given that Zafon, the author of one of my favorite books, Shadow of the Wind, wrote this, I read it with much anticipation. I've read Shadow, Prisoner of Heaven, The Angel's Game - all well-written, fantastic novels - so my hopes were high. After reading it, I was forced to wonder whether he actually wrote it with the same "gusto" as the others. He used cliches, his analogies and similes were a bit "lazy" and the novel did not show the brilliant writing I came to appreciate and be in awe of in his other works. However, the novel is still a good read with a decent story. He mentions Andreas Corelli in it, so I was further intrigued. Zafon is still, and always will be, one of my favorite authors.

    A surprising writer

    The story is a classic one for this writer. But I don't want to do a spoiler review. This writer does suspense, horror, and mystery all in one. I really hope you read this book because it is a very intriguing story.

    Can't wait for this to come out!

    I've read all this author's books & can't wait for this one. I'd like to have the Spanish version for Christmas presents for my children who were brought up in Mexico. They prefer to read Ruiz Zafon's books in the language they were written in. Is the Spanish version already out or will the Spanish and English books be released at the same time?
