My Take: A can't-put-it-down mystery about a young man chasing rumors of a horribly disfigured man bent on burning every book he can find by an obscure author. Mesmerizing storytelling and prose. A femme fatale. A colorful cast of characters. Jaw-dropping reveals. Gothic-like turns. Post-war Barcelona as the backdrop. And one of the most unforgettable secondary characters you'll ever meet in bawdy, womanizing, ex-street begger Fermin Romero de Torres. Great fun.

The book hit the Bobbarama Way Station this morning. It's now on its way north ... from the winter warmth of Southern California to the winter cold of Canada.

Brrrrrr.

Bundle up, stay warm, ckochlourens. I worry about you up there.

:)

(Thank you, Moeshell.)

I am starting to read this book today. I think it'll take me about a week to read, judging from the thickness of the book.

Wow! What an amazing book! I just couldn't put it down. It was so well written... It reminded me once again of how much I love Spanish / Latin American writers. The almost supernatural, the mystery...it's just wonderful. Of course there were also a few very horrific passages. The death of Penelope, for example, made me almost throw up, that was terribly disturbing. But I finished the book with a smile and a few tears.
Now I have to get my own copy, so I can read it again and again.

I will send this book on its way as soon as I have received the address of the person below me on the list.

It arrived today after an adventure across the pond. The packaging got a bit torn and it arrived in a "sorry it got damaged" plastic bag, but the book is fine. I am in the process of reading another ring, so will read this after that. (don't you love it when 3 books turn up about the same time!)

I am so sorry that it took so long to inform you that the book is safe and sound, but I've been out travelling! Now I'm back, happy to see a new book in my mailbox!

And luckily, I just finished off another ring, so I'll get to this one pretty quickly!

Thanks for sending and arranging!

I have no idea why, but I started reading the book last summer, and for some kind of reason, it just drowned in thousands of other things to read. Then I finally remembered again shortly before Christmas.

It has taken some time to get through it, due to travelling and Christmas and such things, but then again it just makes this wonderful book last longer! I have been wondering for weeks what was gong to happen to the fascinating characters of the book.

Zafón's style of writing is also very capturing.

As far as I can see, no one is waiting for this book, so I might just give it on to a friend who was interested! Please send me a PM if I am wrong, and should pass it on to someone!

bobbarama: thanks for arranging!
