  • One of my favorite authors. These books are epic, gothic novels that span generations. Very well developed characters, intense plot lines oh I could go on and on! My favorite is The Shadow of the Wind - Barcelona, the Cemetary of Forgotten Books, etc etc.! The Angel's Game (really, a continuation from The Shadow of the Wind) had a very odd ending. I enjoyed the book up to the end. I wouldn't not read the book, just be prepared for a funky ending!


  • The soul of books. On Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s The Angel’s Game. Barcelona. For almost a 100 years, it has been Antonio Gaudi and the Sagrada Familia. But more recently, also Carlos Ruiz Zafon, the Spanish bestselling author and his books on books. Zafon envisaged four novels that would be part of a fictional universe, with some of the same characters you meet at different points in their lives. A Harry Potter world for adults. A box of stories with four doors to enter “a labyrinth of fictions [...]


  • Shadow of the Wind is my favorite book ever. Love this series, love when I read an interview with Carlos that said something to the effect of "even though this is a series, you can read it in any order, seeing characters in different times of their lives." Love, love, love.


  • these books are absolutely great. mystery, Gothic atmosphere, thrilling action, complex characters, love, and marvelous places (Barcelona, The Cemetery of Forgotten Books).


  • one of three books with the same characters and story arc. The reviews said that it didn't matter which order you read the books and i suppose that's true.The order of the books will determine your experience but they are all written in such a way that the end can either be a cliffhanger or a satisfying conclusion.Interesting concept that succeeds at a certain level


  • I read this books in spanish and fell in love with the narrative and fantastic gothic world that the author paints with his words. If you enjoy suspense and clever story lines, look for any of his stories and you won't regret it.


  • Read this book several times. I don't do that very often. I laughed, I cried and I loved this book like a friend. I will read this book again because it frankly calls my name with mystery, love just so well written. It is vivid and honest and exotic and so many other things. I recommend this as a hidden gem that many don't know about and I hope others enjoy this book as well. It's right up there with: Como Agua para Chocolate.


  • I'm a fan of Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Although I didn't think that Angel's Game matched the heights of The Shadow of the Wind, it was still a good read. And in The Prince Of Mist one can see how the author's style as developed.The story is well-developed, if aimed at a slightly younger audience, and the atmosphere that Zafon creates so well in all of his books, and possibly his strongest point, is here in abundance. If there is a criticism to be made it is that some of the language, often surrounding [...]


  • Read Shadow of the Wind and then Angel's Game. It was the same lovely writing but the story fell a little short for me. Shadow of the Wind was perfection that moved me if not physically but spiritually to Barcelona during their civil war. and I really want to find a library like that a repository of all books held sacred. There should be one.


  • I adored this collection, it made me think that Zafon is probably the best contemporary writer apart from Jeffrey Eugenides. I haven't cried over a book for a long time, but Marina did that for me. One of the most beautiful love stories of the last centuries.


  • Amazing. A book series that transports you. You will not be able to put down this series of books. The language will transport you and create an obsession.



  • One of the most fabulous authors to read. The descriptions really suck you into the story. Once I've started reading one of his books, I know I'll be lost to the world for hours.



  • Dit eerste deel - De schaduw van de wind - van een cyclus heb ik met veel plezier gelezen.Ik werd al meteen aangesproken door het zeer kleurrijke taalgebruik van Carlos Ruiz Zafon en toen ik eenmaal goed in het verhaal zat werd ik ook gegrepen door de spanningsboog tussen de personages onderling en tussen heden en verleden. Tot het eind toe bleef deze spanning bestaan en ik ben dan ook zeer gemotiveerd om aan het volgende deel uit deze cyclus te beginnen. Het spel van de engel ligt klaar naast m [...]


  • I loved the "Shadow of the Wind" and highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good historical mystery/romance. This is top-notch literature set in Franco's fascist Barcelona . It reminded me of the film "Pan's Labyrinth ", which I also love because of it's spooky ambience and foreboding. The characters are very interesting and I won't soon forget them. I look forward to reading more from Mr. Zafon soon.


  • I don't know if I'll ever finish this book. A promising idea, but ends up being nothing more than 500 pages of drivel. The plot doesn't really make sense and the entire book seems forced. I do not recommend this.UPDATE: I gave up on this book with 50 pages to go. I gave it a fair chance and I could take no more, I couldn't force myself to read those last pages.


  • Leer Marina ha sido un viaje al pasado de una ciudad que apenas distingo, llena de misterio e intriga, un pequeño toque de terror que hizo de la lectura más interesante. El final tan inesperadamente intenso y sentimental llego a conmoverme de tal manera que me encuentro sorprendido de que haya encontrado una obra tan profunda.


  • Intriguing books and author. I read them all except Marina, and I was quite mesmerized by them - especially the Shadow of the Wind. I would definitely recommend them, and I'm looking forward to reading his latest book; The Prisoner of Heaven, which is the successor to the Shadow of the Wind and Angel's Game:


  • This whole set/series is so well crafted. The characters are related through all three of the novels. Yet each is it's own individual story. Zafon writes with such beauty, imparting wisdom and such waves of emotion in the reader. I'm sad to see this series end. It left me wondering somewhatbut left room for me to decide the ending for myself. I loved, loved these books!!!!!


  • Good writer, mysterious is the brand of Zafon, I like first the Shadow of the Wind, it was just great fresh, mysterious and unexpected at the end. The other I liked but I found it a little bit similar. I would like to understand the obsession of Zafon with fire, all his novel have fire on them. Good!


  • Love these books, and the author is so talented. The only one I have not read yet is Marina. But, the others are rich in detail and magnetically draw you into each story. Surprisingly, the Prince of Mist was written as a young adult novel, but it was a wonderful tale, and I enjoyed reading it.


  • Amazing writer He transmits so many emotions through his words, I would recommend Marina, which is in my opinion the best book ever written, I believe it's being published in English around September or October, so keep a lookout for this great book!


  • Bought a French Pocket Book edition of Le Prince de la Brume--partly because of curiosity about Zafon and partly because the book itself was beautiful and compact. And party because I had a long layover in Paris CDG. Worth it!


  • Read the Prince of the Mist and was not as impressed as I thought I'd be. Admittedly I may have missed some things since I read it in the original Spanish and didn't have a dictionary with me. But my arguments with it were more plot-oriented than stylistic.


  • Shadow of the wind is one of those books i will read over and over again.Zafon takes us back to a Barcelona that i could never have imagined.Absolutly brilliant novel from an absolutly brilliant mind.


  • Wow. Can't recall ever reading a book like this. Sinister but compelling. I happened to listen to it on CD, the person who read kept a very strong variety of accents and such for each character. Enjoyed his voice a lot.


  • the shadow of the wind was an excellent book. i cant wait to read the rest of the series. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes a twist to the story. It was wonderful.
