traveling pages: carlos ruiz zafón – la sombra del viento

February 17th, 2013 by nina · books, review, spain

carlos ruiz zafón
la sombra del viento (the shadow of the wind)
first publication 2001
planeta, barcelona, spain
565 pages
languages: spanish, english, german,  french and 32 others

i know, this book is not exactly about travelling. but it is about barcelona and it is one of my favourite books ever. i read it a lot of times and i also have an audio book i am listening to. it is a book i warmly recomment to everybody. a book about books, friendship, barelona, love, hate and a young man who wants to know the truth. it is wonderful, exciting and an absolut must read!

It’s the year 1945 in spain. daniel sempere is 10 years old when his father takes him to the cemetery of forgotten books for the first time. it is the rule that every new person at this place should pick one book and make sure it will be never forgotten. daniel discovers a book named the shadow of the wind of the very unknown but brilliant julian carax.  he starts to find out the details about julian carax life. but this is not as easy as he thought it would be. there are so many mysteries about carax life. along with his friend fermin he is digging deeper. he finds a twisted family story, old schoolmates, an everlasting friendship and penelope. and there is chief-inspector fumero. a ruhtless and coldhearted person who would stop at nothing. daniel gets tangled more and more into carax story and when he finally falls in love with bea it seems like history repeats.

a little ps: the first 80 pages float by without a lot happening, but be aware of the characters who get introduced, you might meet them again. i abandoned the book at my first read, not understanding what people like about it. but i gave it another try and without noticing i fliped the last page. finishing this book made me feel like loosing good friends.
