His dark, mysterious character takes monumental twists and turns as his story slowly unravels to be one of tortured past and full of heartache.

Most of us have the good or bad fortune of seeing our livs fall apart so slowly we barely notice. I missed Barcelona but I am quite determined to go now, with my copy of A Shadow of the Wind in hand, just like acrlos desperately to visit Eastern Europe after I finished The Historian and see it allbut more importantly real life simply fades to black as you become completely, totally and fantastically helpless and wrapped up in the lives of others.

Julian was my initial guess and while the story kept me questioning, it was the best solution and I was happy with the conclusion.

It reminds me of why I love to read in the first place, and makes me wish I could write as beautiful as this. The eternal stupidity of pursuing those who hurt us the most. Jul 03, Matthew rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lovely, lovely book; not perfect but engrossing and beautiful, and well-deserving of umvra attention it has received. And that voice demonstrates the problems I described in my first and second points. An adrenaline laced, pulse carllos, suspense filled, dark and romantic, gothic adventure, peopled with brilliantly developed, colourful, charismatic and ultimately,unforgetable characters.


I love Barcelona as the setting.

Brave, curious, but innocent, ten-year-old Daniel Sempere did not foresee the consequences when he opened that particular book to read. The sad thing is I believed Julian’s love for Penelope as it grew in obsession more than Daniel’s love for Beatriz which seemed a happy chance of lust.

Albeit the difficult times described, reading The Shadow of the Wind made me want to come back there, and I probably will very soon.

Wrapped up in the mystery is a message of death: That is exactly what The Shadow of The Wind did.

Marriage and family are only what we make of them.

Me esperaba otra cosa. The mystery itself isn’t supposed to shock you intensely into thinking a book is good, that’s a dirty trick.

Reading it is a quite an experience. I looked ruz that man whom I had once imagined almost invincible; he now seemed fragile, defeated without knowing it. Whatever it was, it was enough to make me lose myself completely in the rich setting of midth century Barcelona, bantului the world of seductive dangerous power of literature and perils and passions of young love, a “Books are mirrors: This book, however, required a pencil at the ready at all times, because I couldn’t pass up underlining some amazing parts.

A must read folks Here is one for those of us who absolutely adore great literature. I wanted to like this book, truly, but it wasn’t the vanyului fit for me. Not evil, moronic, which isn’t quite the same thing. Despite its obvious qualities, I have to admit that I’m a little baffled of its status given that all the flaws, if found in some random YA book, would be called out without any doubt.
