Mehr über den Autor

Barcelona hat ihn geprägt, zum Schreiben animiert und inspiriert. Das in 30 Sprachen übersetzte Werk des Spaniers Carlos Ruiz Zafón (geboren 1964), insbesondere seine Bestseller "Der Schatten des Windes" und "Das Spiel des Engels", sind von seiner Geburtsstadt nicht zu trennen. Zafón ist ein glänzender Erzähler. Seine Bücher, aufwendig und genau recherchiert, erreichen ihren Reiz durch den Wechsel von Spannung und Fantasie, durch die Neugier auf die Figuren, ihr Leben, Lieben und Scheitern. Es sind grandiose Gestalten - Helden und Schurken, Glücksritter und Pechvögel. Der Autor lebt in Los Angeles als Werbetexter, Drehbuchautor, Journalist und Romancier. Weitere bekannte Bücher sind "Der dunkle Wächter" und "Der Fürst des Nebels".

2.0 von 5 Sternen Enid Blyton meets Stephen King 27. April 2014
Von Marybeth
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"The Prince of Mist" ist Zafons erster Roman, erschienen 1993. Dass es davon eine englische Übersetzung gibt, die 2010 auf den Markt kam, verdankt sich wohl der Tatsache, dass der Autor mit "Der Schatten des Windes" inzwischen einen Bestseller publiziert hatte, in dessen Nachfolge man sich auch von seinen unbekannten früheren Werken einen Erfolg versprach.
Im Vorwort teilt Carlos Ruiz Zafon mit, dass er sein Erstlinsgwerk hauptsächlich, aber keineswegs nur, für ein jüngeres Publikum geschrieben habe ("young adults"), und dass er mit diesem Buch und den drei folgenden, ebenfalls weniger bekannten, die Erzählungen schreiben wollte, die er selbst als junger Mensch, aber auch mit 23 oder 83 noch hätte lesen wollen. Ich bin nur drei Jahre jünger als der Autor und möchte behaupten, dass es vor fünfunddreißig Jahren solche Bücher sehr wohl gab.

Als ich "The Prince of Mist" las, hatte ich, metaphorisch gesprochen, das Gefühl, ich müsste von jeder Seite erst den Staub pusten, ehe ich sie lesen konnte.

4.0 von 5 Sternen loved it 10. März 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really adore this book.
It was wonderful and some passages were just scrumdilumtiouse.
I would recommend it to older readers or teenagers (13-30)
I had to read on and was finished in no time.
I luved the spooky and sad part.
I would really recommend this book
Only four stars couse of the end.
The whole book ended as it started - Fleischmanns had a child which died and at the end it also dies.
The only fascinating and inresting part is the middle part .

4.0 von 5 Sternen For a YA novel, this is pretty decent 19. Juli 2011
Format:Taschenbuch
"The Prince of Mist" is one of Carlos Ruiz Zafón's earliest novels. It is a book for young adults, or at least he states in the preface that it was published as a YA novel. The story takes place in 1943 in England (at least the characters' names make me think so, but it is never actually stated). The protagonist is Max Carver, a 13 year old boy who moves to the coast with his family to escape the war.

As soon as he arrives, he discovers an ancient garden full of statues that appears to be perpetually covered in chilly fog. The statues seem to change over the course of a few days, though Max cannot prove this. Simultaneously, his sister's cat begins to act strangely, eventually attacking and nearly killing the girl.

Max meets Roland, a boy from town. Roland gives him a few diving lessons because there is an ancient wreck near the coast that he wants to show him. Once they go down there, however, Roland is attacked by a mysterious force and nearly drowns.

In a parallel storyline, Roland's adoptive grandfather tells the story of an evil magician he met in his youth, tracked down, and eventually followed aboard the ship that is now lying as a wreck nearby. The old man is convinced that he was the only survivor of the shipwreck, but as events unfold, he realizes that the magician never really died. His spirit survived in the statue garden near Max's house. In a big showdown, the evil magician kidnaps Max's sister and wants to exchange her for Roland's life to settle scores. Roland agrees and drowns in the shipwreck.

I liked the novel, because I like ghost stories in general, and for the most part, this is a ghost story. However, I don't think that Roland should've died.

Die Bücher von Zafon kann ich garnicht so schnell bestellen wie ich sie lese. Einfach nur spannend mit hohem Suchtpotential.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Review of The Prince of Mist 5. Mai 2010
Von Lydia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not a big fan of ghost stories. I spook easily and end up having to sleep at night with my lights on and an eye half open. I am, however, a huge fan of Zafon's writing and The Prince of Mist proved worthy.

Although The Prince of Mist lacked the more poetic writing of The Shadow of the Wind and The Angel's Game, it still captured that gothic, dark feeling that I loved about the books. I could definitely tell this was a book geared more toward a younger audience - it was short, easy to read and drew me in from the very get-go.

Young Max has to move from his childhood home. With him are his two sisters (one older, one younger) and his parents. They move to a house with a history, a house on a beach, and they stumble into a story involving magic, ghosts and some of the creepiest elements of a ghost story that can be used.

There was a little bit of everything in this book. It played on my fear of graveyards, clowns, "The Ring" movie and many more fears. I read the book in an evening, but had to set it down several times because of random noises that had me jumping and looking over my shoulder. It's just a book, I'd remind myself. I'm such a wimp.

This is a fantastic addition to the YA world. The beginning writing is a bit simple, but push through it and you'll find a story that has every element needed to make it interesting, scary, fun, romantic, sad and just plain creepy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A spooky read 21. Mai 2010
Von Brittany Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
During wartime a father picks up his family to move out of the city and onto the sea coast. Once there, however, strange things start happening to some of them. A cat that shoots daggers with its eyes is adopted by the youngest child, the son notices the hands on the clock moving backwards, and the eldest daughter is simply in a slump. When the son, Max, meets a boy from town named Roland he gets a tour of the town and an invitation to go diving on some old boat wreckage. Max sensing his eldest sister's, Alicia, melancholy invites her along when he goes to visit Roland. When Roland tells of tales relating to the Prince of Mist, Max knows that it has something to do with the statue garden and the tapes he has found. He knows he needs help if he is going to figure out what is going on and stop it before it's too late.

I wish I could read this in it's original text, theoretically I can, and probably will. I feel like there were parts that just didn't translate well, because the story will be going along and then all of a sudden the writing seems a little off. Maybe that is how it was written but, until I read the original I can not be sure. Otherwise this was a very creepy, creepy novel. I made the mistake of reading this before going to bed. Big mistake. This story contains the spooky Prince of Mist, clowns(eek), statues that move only slightly, graveyards and underwater sunken ships. All these things make me stay up all night to finish the book hoping that once it's done I won't have nightmares. If you don't enjoy reading scary stories, and any of the above things creep you out, don't read this book. If you don't mind something a little spooky please pick this up it was a wonderful story. It's set in 1943 so it's got a nice historical fiction feel, without reading like your history book for school. The history lies within the characters actions and the way they use their words. Although some things seem out of place, I can't say for certain since I a.) didn't live in 1943 and b.) am not quite sure where this takes place, but it probably isn't New Hampshire. Also really enjoyable was the unconventional ending, I don't want to ruin it, but I appreciated it fully for not ending like you might expect. I certainly enjoy this novel and will pick up Carlos Ruiz Zafón's other young adult novels, should he write any more. I also look forward to reading this in it's original Spanish. Go out and pick this book up it was well written and a pleasure to read.

First Line:
"Max would never forget that faraway summer when, almost by chance, he discovered magic."

Favorite Line:
"Alicia woke shortly after sunrise to find two amber eyes staring intently at her from the window."

3.0 von 5 Sternen geared towards YA audience 1. Juni 2010
Von Matthew Schiariti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Being a big fan of The Shadow of the Wind and a fan of the Angel's Game (up until the rather strange and confusing ending) I was pretty happy when I found a new Zafon book being published. I had no idea it was a young adults novel (and his first apparently) until I got my hands on the novel and read the forward.

At its heart, The Prince of Mist is more or less a ghost story. Because of the looming threat of World War II Max's father moves them to a 'town by the sea'. They move into an old shore house that has a rather shady history. As Max tries to fill up his summer days learning the new town and missing his true home he discovers the skeletons that are held within the home's particular closets.

I'm hardly a young adult which is probably why this book didn't appeal to me all that much. I'm not a huge horror fan but I enjoy a creepy ghost story from time to time. While there's elements of creepiness and sinister goings on in this novel as well as a hint of mystery I found myself not at all creeped or surprised at the book's outcome.

I will say that the characters are pretty vivid though, which is one of Zafon's strong suits. Anybody who's read Shadows or Angels can attest to that.

Would I have read the book if I'd known it was intended for younger audiences from the beginning? I'm sure I would have being that I'm a fan of Zafon and I have read and enjoyed some YA novels, although I admit those instances are few and far between.

Not a bad book by any means, it just missed a certain something that normally pulls me into a novel.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Plot holes galore 3. Oktober 2010
Von octobercountry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Looking at the Amazon plot summary, this book seems to have all the elements present that would suggest that this would turn out to be exactly the sort of story that I really enjoy. And true enough, it started out well. However, about three-quarters of the way through I began getting a sinking sensation that all the plot elements were not, in fact, going to tie together in the end---and I was correct. I thought the shreds of plot only imperfectly masked one loophole after another. It just didn't make sense.

Still, I held out hope until the final two chapters. Not only did the conclusion make everything that happened before seem kind of pointless, but I have to say---in the strongest possible terms---that I HATED THE WAY THIS STORY ENDED. I think if the final two chapters had been different, I still would have given this a weak recommendation despite my misgivings, but as it stands---nope, not going to happen.

It wasn't a bad book in terms of the skill of the author (though as with any translation, you have to wonder just how much of the author's original voice and vision are getting through). But I thought it had major logical inconsistencies; some real problems with style over substance. And as I said---there's that horrible ending that left me with a very negative feeling about the entire enterprise.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Courtesy of Mother Daughter Book Club. com 4. Oktober 2011
Von Cynthia Hudson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Carlos Ruiz Zafon is the master of writing great tales with dark undertones, and The Prince of Mist hits the mark as a gothic tale for young adults. To escape the ravages of war in their country, Max's family moves to a home at the seaside, not realizing it comes with a past. Years before, the previous owners' son drowned within sight of the home, and it has lain vacant ever since.

In addition to the past tragedy, Max can feel that something evil resides nearby, and he begins to dream about the garden behind the home, where creepy statues of circus performers reside. Max notices that the statues have moved to different positions each time he goes there.

But there are things for Max to like in his new surroundings too, including his new friend Roland, who teaches Max to dive to a nearby shipwreck in search of treasure. When Max's sister, Alicia, strikes up a relationship with Roland, the three become inseparable. Then they discover the rest of the story about the drowned boy and the prince of mist.

It turns out Roland's grandfather, the local lighthouse keeper, has been keeping vigil over the area to keep the prince of mist from coming back to claim another life, one the prince feels is rightfully his. They all work together to uncover the mystery at the prince's core, before he comes back to strike again.

While the story leaves more questions asked than answered at the end, The Prince of Mist is a good introduction to other Zafon works, such as The Shadow of the Wind, The Midnight Palace, and The Angel's Game.
