The Shadow of the Windis a literary thriller set in Barcelona in the first half of the 20th century, from the fading splendour of Modernism to the shadowy post-war world. The Shadow of the Wind has elements of mystery, historical, and comedy of manner genres but it is most of all a tragic love story which echoes through time. With great narrative power, the author reveals plots and intrigues as though opening up a Russian doll in an unforgettable tale about the secrets of the heart and the magic of books, maintaining the mystery until the last page.

Bea says that the art of reading is slowly dying, that it's an intimate ritual, that a book is a mirror that offers us only what we already carry inside us, that when we read, we do it with all our heart and mind, and great readers are becoming more scarce by the day. ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind.

Un amanecer de 1945, un muchacho es conducido por su padre a un misterioso lugar oculto en el corazón de la ciudad vieja: el Cementerio de los Libros Olvidados. Allí encuentra La Sombra del Viento, un libro maldito que cambiará el rumbo de su vida y le arrastrará a un laberinto de intrigas y secretos enterrados en el alma oscura de la ciudad. Ambientada en la enigmática Barcelona de principios del siglo XX, estemisterio literario mezcla técnicas de relato de intriga, de novela histórica y de comedia de costumbres, pero es, sobre todo, una tragedia histórica de amor cuyo eco se proyecta a través del tiempo. Con gran fuerza narrativa, el autor entrelaza tramas y enigmas a modo de muñecas rusas en un inolvidable relato sobre los secretos del corazón y el embrujo de los libros, manteniendo la intriga hasta la última página.
Reviews about La sombra del viento / The Shadow of the Wind (Spanish Edition) (7):

I'm reading this book in Spanish (not my native language), so it's taking much longer, but that's a good thing because I'm very much enjoying the story and wondering what's going to happen next. The plot unfolds in layers with a subtle complexity as Daniel tries to solve a mystery that parallels events in his own life. I love the writer's sense of humor and am often amused even though I'm sure I'm missing many of the jokes due to the language/cultural barrier. I know that reading this book is helping me with the language because now that I'm about 3/4 of the way done, I'm reading much more fluently than in the beginning. I'll be checking out other books by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

Sin duda alguna, este ha sido uno de los mejores libros que he leido en mi vida, lo mantiene a uno tan entretenido que no quiere parar uno de leerlo. Esta tan brillantemente escrito q uno se siente parte de la historia, en lo personal me pude imaginar cada lugar, persona y circunstancia que iba surgiendo en cada pagina. Tiene de todo, simpatia, inocencia, historia, alegria, tristeza, suspenso y audacidad. Lo disfrute tanto, que se lo compre a mi mama tambien, a ella le encanta leer igual que a mi. Lo recomiendo ????

The Moriarty character (played by Andrew Scott) in the BBC's latest Sherlock series was my image for this novel's completely off-the-rails policeman Fumero. Total nut job! In the beginning, the tale shaped up for me like a Peter Straub encounter with the supernatural. Excellent misdirection! Female characters were limp, passive disappointments until we met Penelope's amah and read Nuría's long, expository letter. Strong female characters there. Fermín's conversations had me running to the dictionary to get educated about many Spanish colloquialisms. Very funny at times.

I am, maybe, an "advanced intermediate" reader of Spanish; native language = English. This was an enjoyable read for me and I look forward to the next title in this series.

Es el primer libro que leo de este autor, y me ha sorprendido gratamente, la lectura es amena, fácil de asimilar, y en toda la novela el autor nos regala pincelazos de su magnifica prosa.
Ambientada en la España del siglo XX, combina los generos de novela policial, gotica, y de aventura.
Realmente es un placer su lectura, y me engancho desde la primera pagina, al terminar el libro me dejo un sabor a querer mas, espero que los otros libros que completan le trilogía sean igual que este.

Si disfrutas la narrativa altamente descriptiva con una fijacion morbida con todas las texturas que aporta la vida (olores, superficies, emociones...), te vas a enamorar de este libro. Lleno de intriga y giros inesperados en su trama... Te absorbe, te capta, y luego te devuelve al mundo cambiado. Quede enamorada.

If you enjoy highly descriptive writing and an eerie fixation on all sorts of textures (scents, surfaces, emotions...), you will absolutely love this book. Full of intrigue and surprising plot twists...it absorbs you, captivates you, and then releases you into the world a changed person. Im in love.

Muy interesante novela, entretenida y muy bien escrita. La mezcla con hechos históricos de Barcelona le agrega un plus.

La única contra es que veces abunda demasiado en la descripción de cada detalle. Hay a quien esto puede agradarle pero a mi se me hizo un poco más lenta la lectura a causa de eso.

Recomiendo mucho la lectura de este libro, se lee rápido porque te atrapa la trama. Todos los personajes son importantes que narran su propia experiencia y se apropian de la historia. Son historias de amor plagadas de dolor, de la incapacidad de.los que rodean a los amantes de entender que el amor no se apaga con represión e imposiciones.
I really cannot emphasize enough how wonderful this book is. If you speak Spanish, by all means, get the version in Spanish. I haven't read the English translation, and while I'm sure it's wonderful, I'm glad I waited until my Spanish was at a level to where I was able to read the original. One of my professors during my semester abroad in Spain recommended this book highly to me years ago and when I finally sent the sample chapter to my Kindle a few months ago, I was hooked from the first line. "Todavía recuerdo aquel amanecer en que mi padre me llevó por primera vez a visitar el Cementerio de los Libros Olvidados." (I still remember that morning in which my father took me for the first time to visit the Cemetery of Forgotten Books)

The wonderful thing about La sombra del viento is that not only does the plot keep you on the edge of your seat, and not only do the characters come alive, and not only is it beautifully written, but there are some amazing lines in the book that are just so insightful, and when I finished, as the main character says of the titular book in the first few pages of the novel, "No quería perder el hechizo de la historia ni todavía decir adiós a sus personajes." (I didn't want to lose the enchantment of the story, or say goodbye to its characters yet.)

This is easily the best book I've ever read in Spanish, and probably one of the top five best books I've ever read period. I can't wait to read the sequel.
