    2. No hay nada, NADA, que yo pueda decir que le haga justicia a esta, o cualquier otra obra del autor, pero lo voy a intentarUstedes pueden decir lo que quieran sobre que a todas las novelas que tiene CRZ y que me he le do, les he dado 5 estrellas, pero la magia que el autor es capaz de brindar a trav s de las paginas es nica en este planeta Los personajes y los lugares tan tenebrosos, as como las historias que engloban cada una de sus obras me absorben de un modo que ning n otro autor puede hacer [...]

    3. I decided to lower the rating.I always get a great satisfaction out of going into a W.H Smith s book shop in any of the English airports and looking to see the latest books on offer I saw this book the other week and the blurb took my fancy I rather liked the idea of An enigmatic toymaker who lives as a recluse in an old mansion, surrounded by the fantastical beings he has created An eerie figure that watches from behind the curtains of a locked room Strange things that flicker through the mist [...]

    4. Nothing else to add that I haven t said below so I ll second my recommendation for this and add my thoughts on the narrator.Jonathan Davis has narrated audio books of Carlos Ruiz Zafon before and each time he has done very well He has a good instinct for voices and the atmosphere of his works Wish he had narrated prisoner of heaven like with the other two The story comes alive with his loving for lack of a better word narration.I hope Mister Davis continues to narrate for this author, he and the [...]

    8. Questo romanzo mi piaciuto dall inizio alla fine.L ho iniziato senza leggere prima la trama, in questo modo ogni pagina era un passo verso una scoperta nuova Tutto ci ha fatto si di non avere verso questo libro grandi aspettative.Questo racconto iniziato in un ambiente tranquillo che faceva immaginare ad una storia dominata dalla magia pi innocente che esista al mondo ma andando avanti il tepore lasciato dai primi capitoli ha lasciato lo spazio all inquietudine e malvagit delle ombre presenti in [...]

    9. The stories in this young adult series aren t connected at all They all have a great sense of mystery and fantasy, but one is set in Spain, the other in India, and this one in France How much better than Prince of Mist this book is I couldn t put it down His characters are REAL REAL I tell you There s so much emotion in his words I don t know how Ruiz Zafon can keep cranking stories like this one Easier to relate than The Midnight Palace, this story gives us a glimpse of Andreas Corelli, a pivot [...]

    13. I love the writing of Carlos Ruiz Zafon And his stories and ideas His books always catch me and I don t want to stop reading and I don t want the books to end This one ended too fast, not just because I enjoyed it too much but because the story rushed through too fast There would have been a lot potential for suspense and character development.

    15. This is the third book by this author that I have read and I should have stopped after the first I feel like I just read a bunch of stuff and have no idea what happened I think perhaps something has been lost in translation Shadows and doppelgangers and toymakers and this child s history and that one s and masks and machines Lots of broken glass and explosions at the end, and I could clearly envision a movie scene with the automatons burning, but other than that I m not sure what happened I m no [...]

    20. This was enjoyable, but not as good as I had expected I dunno, I had heard lots of good things about this author so I think I went in with a little too high of an expectation The story has lots in it for only 256 pages So much so that I felt aspects were a little underdeveloped I expected something with much atmosphere than what I got But, as I said, still an enjoyable story full of mystery, magic, killer monsters and a mysterious hermit man.

    21. This was the third and probably my favorite of Zafon s young adult series A steampunk type theme of a reclusive toy maker with a house full of automatons, it was spooky and fun It kept me page turning until the end, and although the characters were a little flat, the themes of young love, loss, and finding yourself are prevalent throughout the entire book and are well written Zafon s writing can never be called boring, but as I ve said before, he writes adult books so beautifully, it seems almos [...]

    27. Beautifully written although I would have liked After reading The Shadow of the Wind by Zafon a couple of years ago I fell in love I was a little disappointed with this novel That s not saying I didn t enjoy it I did but it just didn t reach the beauty and enchantment of The Shadow of the Wind This follows the story of a single Mother who moves with her son and daughter to a sea side town She takes up a position in a local mansion working for a mysterious toy maker and her family slowly begin t [...]

    28. An interesting read.This book is intended for a younger audience, but for myself, I would have liked to have seen this idea created for an older demographic I know that children will appreciate not reading a book that is condescending, as some children s books can be, they will like a book that is cleverly written and intriguing But still, I would be interested to see how it would have worked aiming for an older audience The plot of the mystery, was very interesting, I liked the supernatural sid [...]

    29. This is an odd one Any attempt on my part to give a decent synopsis or thumbnail sketch of this book won t do it justice, only a little about the story itself I would suggest that if you like fantasy that actually lives up to that name in that it s fancifulor if you like horror that actually inspires terror in those solitary alone moments that you try this one.The book opens up a little slowly giving us background for the players They introduced with some of their life clinging to them We see th [...]
