Lillie Loves to Read

Reader of all kinds of books but favorites genres include mystery, sic-fi, romance, thrillers, YA, fantasy, general fiction, memoirs. I'll try anything once.

The Shadow of the Wind - Carlos Ruiz Zafón This is a fabulous book! There's a mystery within a mystery that just kept me coming back for more.

One of the best parts of the book is that it's set in the early 20th C in Spain, Barcelona to be precise. Starts off with a boy finding a book whose author is a mystery. And that begins his quest of finding what happened to the author and who/why were his books burned.

Loved the writing, the translation was beautiful. Only regret is that I don't speak or read Spanish. To have been able to read this in it's original language would've been fantastic.
