PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Shadow of the Wind (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, #1) The international literary sensation about a boy s quest through the secrets and shadows of postwar Barcelona for a mysterious author whose book has proved as dangerous to own as it is impossible to forget .

Barcelona just after the war a great world city lies in shadow nursing its wounds and a boy named Daniel awakes on his eleventh birthday to find that he can no longer remember his mother s face To console his only child Daniel s widowed father an antiquarian book dealer initiates him into the secret of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books a library tended by Barcelona s guild of rare book dealers as a repository for books forgotten by the world waiting for someone who will care about them again Daniel s father coaxes him to choose a volume from the spiraling labyrinth of shelves one that it is said will have a special meaning for him And Daniel so loves the novel he selects The Shadow of the Wind by one Julian Carax that he sets out to find the rest of Carax s work To his shock he discovers that someone has been systematically destroying every copy of every book this author has written In fact he may have the last one in existence Before Daniel knows it his seemingly innocent quest has opened a door into one of Barcelona s darkest secrets an epic story of murder magic madness and doomed love And before long he realizes that if he doesn t find out the truth about Julian Carax he and those closest to him will suffer horribly .

As with all astounding novels The Shadow of the Wind sends the mind groping for comparisons The Crimson Petal and the White The novels of Arturo P rez Reverte Of Victor Hugo Love in the Time of Cholera but in the end as with all astounding novels no comparison can suffice As one leading Spanish reviewer wrote The originality of Ruiz Zaf n s voice is bombproof and displays a diabolical talent The Shadow of the Wind announces a phenomenon in Spanish literature An uncannily absorbing historical mystery a heart piercing romance and a moving homage to the mystical power of books The Shadow of the Wind is a triumph of the storyteller s art
