The Shadow of the Wind EPUB by Carlos Ruiz ZafóA labyrinth of passageways and crammed bookshelves rose from base to pinnacle like a beehive, woven with tunnels, steps, platforms, and bridges that presaged an immense library of seemingly impossible geometry. I looked at my father, stunned. He smiled at me and winked.
‘Welcome to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, Daniel.’
It is 1945 and Barcelona is enduring the long aftermath of civil war when Daniel Sempere’s bookseller father decides he is old enough to visit the fabulous secret library, the ‘Cemetery of Forgotten Books’. There, Daniel must ‘adopt’ a single book, promising to care for it and keep it alive always. His choice falls on The Shadow of the Wind by Julian Carax.
Entranced by his obscure treasure, Daniel is drawn into a quest to find the truth about the life and death of its mysterious author. Fiction blossoms within fiction, stories turn back on themselves. A malevolent stranger appears, faceless, under a streetlight. Daniel falls into a game of mirrors, reflecting strange discoveries about obsession, and love, and how they are entwined within the shadow world of books.n
