The Shadow of the Wind
The Shadow of the Wind | Carlos Ruiz Zafon
From A to Z, the Penguin Drop Caps series collects 26 unique hardcovers—featuring cover art by Jessica Hische It all begins with a letter. Fall in love with Penguin Drop Caps, a new series of twenty-six collectible and hardcover editions, each with a type cover showcasing a gorgeously illustrated letter of the alphabet. In a design collaboration between Jessica Hische and Penguin Art Director Paul Buckley, the series features unique cover art by Hische, a superstar in the world of type design and illustration, whose work has appeared everywhere from Tiffany & Co. to Wes Anderson's recent film Moonrise Kingdom to Penguin's own bestsellers Committed and Rules of Civility. With exclusive designs that have never before appeared on Hische's hugely popular Daily Drop Cap blog, the Penguin Drop Caps series debuted with an 'A' for Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, a 'B' for Charlotte Brönte's Jane Eyre, and a 'C' for Willa Cather's My Ántonia. It continues with more perennial classics, perfect to give as elegant gifts or to showcase on your own shelves.Z is for Zafón. Barcelona, 1945: A city slowly heals in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. Daniel, an antiquarian book dealer’s son who mourns the loss of his mother, finds solace in what he finds in the “cemetery of lost books,” a mysterious book entitled The Shadow of the Wind, by one Julián Carax. But when he sets out to find the author’s other works, he makes a shocking discovery: someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book Carax has written. In fact, Daniel may have the last of Carax’s books in existence. Soon Daniel’s seemingly innocent quest opens a door into one of Barcelona’s darkest secrets--an epic story of murder, madness, and doomed love.

#JazzyJune The books in the Cemetary of Forgotten Books are #LostAndLonely because "every book, every volume you see here has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down his pages, its spirit grows and strengthens."

The translation from Spanish holds the same mysterious and gripping prose of the original. The book takes you through the story of a family who have books woven through their lives. They must find the one book in “The cemetary of forgotten books” to help solve the mystery of their past. It is an amazing book!

I LOVED this book when I read the physical copy. I just did a re-read but as an audio this time and didn‘t enjoy it as much. I don‘t think the audio was done very well and it did the one thing that grates on my nerves more than anything - play obnoxiously loud music while the author is narrating and continue for several loooooong minutes. Does that annoy the heck out of anyone else? I‘m here for the story, not obnoxious elevator music!

Amandajoy I felt the same way about this one. I read it and then listened to the audio. The music was so annoying! 2mo
CoverToCoverGirl I agree whole heartedly about the music.. 2mo

This book is a dance with mystery-richly unique characters in tragic circumstances are woven in a tale of revenge & love, a parallel story past & present. Gritty, with a historical backdrop and not without a supernatural flair, this book had me pondering circumstances in & out of human control.

Atmospheric and haunting, this is the story of a young man who falls in love with a girl, with a book, with an author, with his friends... against the backdrop of gothic characters and a city stained by its past. Set in Barcelona in the 1950s, it casts a spell amongst shadows and ruins.

This book is full of beautiful, some powerful, quotes and it was rude of me to pick just one for the photo. Sometimes the story and character building walked the fine line of leaving me a little bored and for my mind to wander, which resulted in figuring more of the story out. The writing more than redeems this. My spoiler comment was frustrating for me. 🤯

Robothugs I can‘t help but feel the entire thing plot could have been avoided if they had included certain people in on the fact that they were siblings. Jacinta at the very least, for heaven sake! ? It was touching how far they went to protect Juliàn from the truth. But. It. Could. Have. Been. Avoided. 3mo

I really wanted to like this, it has everything I like, books, mystery, history, Spain but I stopped after the first section. The best way I can describe it is that the words were chewy. If that makes any sense at all. The sentences although beauty were really long and so full of descriptors and embellished that I couldn‘t focus on what was actually being said. I‘m going to shelve it for now and try again another time.

RaimeyGallant Nice review. :) And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site. It's the link in my bio on my page in case you need it. Or if you prefer how-to videos, @chelleo put some together at the link in her bio. 6mo
