Product description

Review

Narrator Dan Stevens' caressing voice is perfect for this haunting tale of writer David Martin. His deft pronunciation of the Spanish names enhances the story's mystery and the romantic love which floats cinematically between the reality of dark alleyways in 1920s Barcelona and a mystical past. Mesmerising. (OBSERVER)

When this came out it was the biggest, fastest-selling blockbuster in Spanish history. (GUARDIAN)

"Set against the most wonderful and evocative descriptions of Barcelona, a city of shapes and shadows, this is both a love story and a gothic intrigue." (DAILY EXPRESS)

Dan Stevens reads this magical prequel to SHADOW OF THE WIND with extraordinary versatility, holding the listener's attention in a vice-like grip, and is as adept at being the Copperfield-like hero, David Martin, and the elusive, wounded heroine as at playing the Faustian Corelli or the Saintly Sempere. (THE TIMES)

The author's admiration for Dickens is evident in the sensational narrative twists and Dan Stevens impersonates a huge cast of characters with verve. (DAILY MAIL)

Review

The Angel's Game weaves the conventions of Wilkie Collins and Dickens into something original and surprisingly moving. (Stephanie Merritt OBSERVER )

'Beyond plentiful shocks and thrills, Zafon niftily treads the fine line between a story of paranormal events and one of psychological delusion.' (Boyd Tonkin INDEPENDENT )

This is a gothic, page-turning, supernatural thriller...there is plenty here to keep Zafon fans happy. (PRESS ASSOCIATION )

Absolutely loved the characters in this book! Every single one draws you in and had their own little storyline so you could imagine them having their own troubles that come with this city. The story was heavier to read than 'Shadow of the Wind' and slightly confusing in places esp when the storyline comes into play about witches and witchcraft but the wonderful writer 'Carlos Ruiz Zafon' is so gifted as a writer to hold you as a reader and trust that you will make it through the storylines that sometimes spirals but no less a great story. Very intrigued to read 'The prisoner of Heaven' with the hint of why the character David Martin went through these experiences.

A good read, book condition as stated, speedy delivery and well packaged. After reading the first of the two this was a must. Recommend you try the Shadow of the Wind first.

Once you start reading these books you will have to complete them all. Wonderfully different stories within stories. Masterfully written. The Shadow of the wind was fantastic.

It is an incredibly well written book, but sombre and sad, like it's predecessor. Everyone fares badly and there are few happy endings.
I would not read it and expect to be happy and joyous afterwards. I'll save the 3rd book for when I having a lot of fun.

I fell in love with the first book in the series and wasn't convinced that Carlos Ruiz Zafon could make an even better book. I was totally wrong he writes with passion and detail. A wonderful book to read.

By D. Elliott TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Sept. 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Once more author Carlos Ruiz Zafon has produced a magically brilliant book about books with `The Angel's Game' being a supernatural saga, an action-packed thriller, a detective novel and a love story. - and perhaps even a philosophical or religious treatise. It tells a dark and gripping tale with narrative moving at a cracking pace and introducing something new on almost every page. Though a stand-alone novel `The Angel's Game' (about writers) follows from Zafon's first book `The Shadow Of The Wind' (about readers), but for me it is not quite as good. This is partly because, in spite of its compelling nature, it reads as though at least two translators were employed with varied language that is generally elegant and stylish yet sometimes colloquial and abrupt. However the main drawback is the book's proliferation of sub-plots (of which some are left unexplained) and their complicated inter-relations. This complexity undermines any possible plausible solution and for me it leaves the ending somewhat weak. I suspect author Zafon is deliberately provoking readers to use their imaginations and to arrive at their own conclusions. I discussed this with my wife and we had both interpreted things differently - so read it yourself - you won't be disappointed.

A much darker tale than Shadow of the Wind but none the worse for it. A mystery with a supernatural element that let a few unanswered questions. I quite enjoy that aspect to a book though. Parts, were very powerful and moving and in the whole an excellent story.
