La sombra del viento

La Sombra del Viento (Vintage Espanol) La Sombra del Viento by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm half-way through this addictive book. The best book I've ever read. Wow. What a gift with words. I'm curious about the English translation because the original language is so beautiful it has me crying on one page and laughing aloud the next. Oh Barcelona! I think I'd love to live there!

  1. I would say that I'd look for this at my library, but they don't have many books in Spanish. Maybe I'll try the bookstore instead.

  2. Hey!! I just tagged you on my blog!! Be sure to check it out, okay?

    Oh, and I haven't read this book yet, but I've heard it'll rock my world. It's going right into my to-be-read pile for sure!

  3. I love this author, but I haven't seen this title yet. Yay! Thanks for the recommendation. :-)

    I popped over from Amparo's blog to say hello - I'm so glad I did!

  4. I love your blog header and I'm intrigued at your heritage. (I used to live in Uruguay and have a soft heart for all things castellano!)

    Glad to have stopped by.

  5. PS: I'm going to LDStorymakers, too! (Just saw that on your sidebar. I'll look for you there!!)

  7. Oh, what a great blog! I love literature, too. In fact, I work in a little bookstore.
