Found this at the dollar store. I haven't read any Zafon before, but I have two of his books on my TBR pile and figure if I end up liking those then I'll kick myself for missing this opportunity later, but on the other hand, if I don't like them and decide not to read this, there are loads of Zafon fans out there I could pass this along to.

A deliciously gothic tale about Oscar, a boy in Barcelona who meets a girl named Marina and her father Herman in an old, falling-down mansion. One night when Oscar and Marina are walking in an old cemetery, they spy an old woman in black setting a rose on an unmarked grave. This ends up leading them to a series of strange people in strangers situations, including some pretty terrifying monsters. I really enjoyed this one. It's a little predictably tragic, but it works - that's just the kind of book this is. The imagery is fantastic and the characters are fascinating. Definitely going to be picking up more Zafon.

melydia gave me this book because she knows Zafon is one of my favorite authors and this is one of his only books I haven't read!
