La sombra del vientoBarcelona 1945 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 antiuarian 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 reposito There's probably nothing much I learned in the introspective sense but this is a novel like a novel ought to be This is an epic film on paper gloomy and engaging smokey noir with crumbling ruins young love disfigurment lust torturethe stuff of Dumas DuMauier and as of late The Historian I woke up at five am and had to sweet talk myself back to sleep all I wanted to do was read One Friday after work I took sanctuary in The Hotel Biron those little tables in the dark pages flickering with candles and drank a glass of wine in solitude completely enthralled in the world of 1940's BarcelonaI walked home from the train at night and found myself saying the characters names beneath my umbrella hoping no one would hear me talking to myself but they were uite simply too beautiful to ignore Julian Carax Daniel Semepere BeatrizTomas Penelope Aldaya and Nuria MonfortIn a movie this would be too many people but for this novel they were perfectly seamed each point of view entralling and taxing than the one beforeMost refreshing clearly the author wasn't poisoned with the desire to simply keep the reader in the dark instead this story with attention was something you could figure out because that's the way life is The mystery itself isn't supposed to shock you intensely into thinking a book is good that's a dirty trick Instead the STORY carried you You cared about the story and it was a tragity and mystery all the same simply because you were invested in these people and what became of them To know them so intimately from childhood to adulthood and old age to know them through various degrees of point of view seperation to hear there is no Penelope and then to know she is a sister a love but to some non existantwell it's gothic literature at it's very bestWith a book like this I am almost ALMOST tempted to give up my most pedantic and pretentious thoughts paralells and character development this story is a story and it's just that good It is the Phantom of the Opera those dark tunnels and pressure points a lake with candles or drawing rooms with no fire in the grate and crazy wives being stored in attics over head This is uite literally a timeless tale and yes reading it will make you smarter interested cultured the back of the book includes a walking tour of Barcelona I missed Barcelona but I am uite determined to go now with my copy of A Shadow of the Wind in hand just like wanting desperately to visit Eastern Europe after I finished The Historian and see it all but importantly real life simply fades to black as you become completely totally and fantastically helpless and wrapped up in the lives of othersWhile there are fun hybrids Crash Topics in Calamity Physics for one which combine a courses authors uotes and plot lines from a thousand famous novels this book really makes that unnecessary This is a classic without any help no cheat cheats necessary Read it Read it Read itI write on books and other stuff at wwwsnapshotnarrativetumblrcom
