Not in the same league as the Angel's Game and Shadow of the Wind,
This review is from: Marina (Paperback)Being a big fan of Ruiz Zafon's work I was instantly drawn to this book. I had not heard of it before I saw it in Amazon.
Although the narrative starts with a bang, it didn't deliver in the end for me. Ruiz Zafon lost the plot towards the end. It was a shame really. The book started with a lot of intrigue and mystery - he is a master at that - but couldn't hold the tempo. It's readable but I won't go out to buy copies for my friends.
