I came across this book by chance in a charity shop and the premise of a library of forgotten books is what prompted me to read it I m so glad I did it s a book unlike anything I ve ever read before The author s evocative descriptions bring the images alive in my mind and the story just absorbed me from the start I couldn t read it fast enough Have now also read the two seuels and am really looking forward to the last book The Laberynth of the Spirits

What s wrong with him I could tell you it s his heart but what is really killing him is loneliness Memories are worse than bullets The Shadow of the Wind written by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and translated by Lucia Graves was an absolutely beautiful book to read and savour I am in such awe of the flowing vivid and rich details in this novel and I must applaud Lucia Graves for her skill in her translation The Shadow of the Wind is hard to define to one specific genre although it is classed as historical fiction I personally felt that it was of a bildungsroman with a crime thriller twist to it The story follows Daniel Sempere from a young boy as he first enters the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and chances upon a novel written by Julien Carax He then embarks upon a journey throughout the years to uncover the truth about the author Through this journey we watch Daniel and those closest to him experience loneliness forbidden love prejudice and lost friendships Barcelona is shown to be a perfect gothic backdrop to this and I loved visualising all the descriptions Whilst Daniel was my favourite character it was Fermin Romero de Torres who I found the most entertaining as his humour really cut through the somber chapters He was always so eccentric and crude but he surely had a heart of gold and was just loveableFumero the main villain of the book was one to really despise He was an awful and malicious character whom I loved to hate I did find that in the middle of the book the story did start to drag a bit the pace slowed down a bit too much for my liking However I didn t mind too much as I think my favourite aspect of this book was the rich writing that was full of similes and metaphors which were incredibly perfect I seriously could have included so many uotes in this review There were so many descriptions about books and the readers enjoyment of them This is definitely a book for all book lovers
