The Angel's Game | Carlos Ruiz Zafon
post image
Mehso-so

Pulp fiction writer David Martín is struggling to stay afloat. When he is approached by a mysterious publisher offering a book deal that seems almost too good to be real, David leaps at the chance…after that the plot becomes intricate and mind-boggling. David has a brain tumor, then he doesn‘t. He becomes an unreliable narrator. I think I need to go back and read Shadow of the Wind in hopes it will all make sense.

Very confusing, bc it has a non linear structure. Not my favorite Zafon. Beautiful writing but there are so many unanswered questions…

Book 3: great characterization here! A dark plot involving a reclusive toymaker who lives in a gigantic mansion filled with mechanical beings and shadows of the past…chilling🥶

Book 2 of the YA trilogy by Zafon: Set in Calcutta in the 1930s, The Midnight Palace begins on a dark night when an English lieutenant fights to save newborn twins Ben and Sheere from an unthinkable threat….Great story

The Prince of Mist holds a deathly desire to claim his end of the bargain….this is a suspenseful start to the Zafon trilogy. It‘s horrifying and creepy and great!

This was leaning heavily towards so-so (I had to make myself pick it up) until about 75% of the way through. Then he made me care enough to go on reading. But the characters were 2 dimensional and the parallels too complete for me to be really invested. Unpopular opinion, but I don‘t think it worth the hype. #authoramonth2021 @Soubhiville

Ruthiella Yeah, I didn‘t love this series either (I also read The Angel‘s Game). The synopsis and gothic atmosphere made me think I‘d love it...but it didn‘t quite add up for me, though I loved Fermin as a character. 1w
Lcsmcat @Ruthiella He was an interesting character. I kept hoping to find out his real name, but don‘t care enough to read more of the series. 1w
Leftcoastzen @Ruthiella @Lcsmcat It‘s so weird how this book seems to be most loved or meh. I have never tried it , I usually like both of your tastes in books. Now I‘m on the fence about starting it.😂 6d

Now that I‘m done reading this I kind of feel like I need to start again so that I understand what‘s going on. Overall a pick, but I need a closer read. #AuthorAMonth2021

Kdgordon88 I feel the same. I lost focus a few times while listening and am sure I missed something. (edited) 1w
TheAromaofBooks This one has been on my TBR for a long time and I thought this month would be a good opportunity to finally read it... but I just haven't felt like picking it up!!! Not sure if it's going to happen this month after all. 1w
