Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery of lost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out 'La Sombra del Viento' by Julian Carax. But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night, as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a character from La Sombra del Viento, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in order to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left behind. A page-turning exploration of obsession in literature and love, and the places that obsession can lead.

Zafón tells the story of 10-year-old Daniel, who discovers the forgotten book of an almost unknown author, dusting on the shelves of an archaic, mystic library. He sets out to find out more about this Julian Carax, whose books had only sold a few copies. But soon he encounters a dangerous antagonist: Who is the mysterious man, who disturbingly resembles one of the characters from Carax' books? And why is he trying to burn every single page Carax has ever written? Suddenly, Daniel finds himself caught up in a perilous race to find out the truth about the disappearing of Carax from Barcelona - and the question what became of those he left behind.
Though clearly situated in time and space (the story begins in 1945 in Barcelona), Zafón's enthralling novel seems timeless. Hardly any of the characters is who they first pretend to be. They all have secrets to hide. Oftentimes, "The Shadow of the Wind" appears a dream fed with fairy tale elements rather than a realistic story. On 506 pages, Zafón unfolds a multi-layered, fascinating narrative, finding the perfect balance between romance, mystery and gothic. A book you can hardly put down until you've read the last page - highly recommended!
and i think 5 stars are not enough for this book!!
The places, like the library and the mansion, were visible to me.
The main characters respect for his father, for the books, and his longing for the women in his life, was incredibly well described and laid out.
And the plot yanks you in. I was reading this on a beautiful beach in Greece, and it continually brought me away from that reality into it's own world. I had to pass it to my wife and my son to read, and they also devoured it on the same vacation. It is that kind of read, the kind that you cannot put down no matter where you are.
I eagerly search the Internet for news of Senor Zafon's next work.
