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.
