4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and Creepy, 16 Nov 2008
This review is from: Marina (Nomadas) (Paperback)
This Spanish language novel is a classic Gothic horror thriller of a type not normally found in English. The narrator is child who stumbles into a macabre adult world where nothing is what it appears. He and his friend Marina gradually unravel the true horror of the events which started many years previously, expose the causes for the unexplained events they discover and ultimately contribute to the dramatic denouement of the novel. Very much in the style of the film the Devil's Backbone,it uses Magic Realism to allow the awfulness of the adult reality to be gradually exposed through the naivety of the young. The imagery and language are truly chilling. Well worth a read.
