The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

The Angel's Game - Carlos Ruiz Zafon, Dan Stevens

Last night, I listened to the end of this audiobook with tears in my eyes. I won't easily forget those last scenes.

 

My favorite parts of this story were the visits to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books. I love the idea of a place where:

 

Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The first time someone visits this place, he must choose a book and adopt it, making sure that it will never disappear, that it will always stay alive.

 

 

Just reading those sentences makes my soul sigh with contentment.

 

I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as I enjoyed Shadow of the Wind. This tale was slightly darker and more mysterious, but I thought the mystery became a little convoluted.

 

This was still a wonderful, beautifully written story that had me in tears more than once. What an amazing feeling that is. Highly recommended!
