'This is one gorgeous read.' Stephen King It is 1945 and Barcelona is enduring the long aftermath of civil war when Daniel Sempere’s bookseller father decides his son is old enough to visit the secret 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. Bewitched, he embarks on an epic quest to find the truth about Julian Carax, the book’s mysterious author. Soon Daniel is consumed by strange discoveries about love and obsession, art and life, and how they become entangled within the shadow world of books. The Shadow of the Wind is a mesmerising love story and literary thriller, which twists and turns and enthralls with its cast of vengeful souls, threatening spectres and innocent hearts. Carlos Ruiz Zafón was born in Barcelona in 1964 and attended university there. He worked as a screenwriter in Los Angeles for ten years before the publication of his fifth book, The Shadow of the Wind, in 2001. It has been translated into over 40 languages and was a finalist for the Premio Fernando Lara. Ruiz Zafón is now a full-time novelist and regular contributor to the newspapers El Pais, La Vanguardia and El Mundo. He lives in Barcelona. ‘Atmospheric, beguiling and thoroughly readable.’ Observer ‘A popular masterpiece, an instant classic.’ Daily Telegraph ‘Utterly unputdownable.’ Australian ‘Wondrous…intended for readers as passionate about storytelling as its young hero.’ Who Weekly ‘An intoxicating and thoroughly irresistible mix of romance, mystery, gothic horror and melodrama.’ Vogue ‘I’d like to say more about this superbly entertaining book but don’t dare to hint any more about its plot twists. Suffice it to say…anyone who enjoys novels that are scary, erotic, touching, tragic and thrilling should rush right out to the nearest bookstore and pick up The Shadow of the Wind. Really, you should.’ Washington Post

Ensayo del año 2006 en eltema Romanística - Español, literatura, cultura general, Nota: Gut, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main (Romanische Sprachen und Literaturen), Materia: La Sombra del Viento, 4 Citas bibliográficas, Idioma: Español, Resumen: El tema central de este trabajo es la función de la violencia y de la maldad en La Sombra del Viento, la cuarta novela de Carlos Ruiz Zafón, con la que el autor ha tenido mucho éxito desde su publicación. La novela, que está claramente influenciada por el género gótico y se desarrolla entorno a la solución de un misterio por parte de un niño, se sirve de la violencia como leitmotiv. Lo maligno aparece en diferentes formas: la guerra, las persecuciones, la tortura, el diablo. En las siguientes páginas analizaré más detalladamente algunos de estos temas para aclarar cómo el narrador los utiliza en la construcción de su cuento y qué reacción provocan en el lector. Primero analizaré la manera en la que el narrador construye la ciudad de Barcelona y la atmósfera en la que los personajes se mueven. Después me concentraré en la figura del diablo que está presente dos veces en la novela: en el personaje ficticio de Laín Coubert y en el inspector Fumero. En estas figuras, la maldad está representada de dos formas diferentes. En el caso de Laín Coubert, el narrador identifica lo malo con algo inexistente, un principio transcendente e inexplicable para el ser humano. El diablo, así como la religión católica lo representa y como está descrito en el caso de Coubert, es algo irreal, lejano que amenaza y da miedo sin que el hombre pueda entender sus razones. Por el contrario, Fumero es un personaje que representa una tipología di hombre común, por eso su crueldad es injustificada y terrible. Su venganza no tiene explicación, lo cual aumenta el terror en la gente que ha tenido la mala suerte de enfrentarse con él, como aclara Fermín, contando de las marcas que las torturas le han dejado en el cuerpo y en el alma.

"We all have a secret buried under lock and key in the attic of our soul. This is mine." When Fifteen-year-old Oscar Drai suddenly vanishes from his boarding school in Barcelona, no one knows his whereabouts for seven days and seven nights. His story begins when he meets the strange Marina while he's exploring an old quarter of the city. She leads Oscar to a cemetery, where they watch a macabre ritual that occurs on the last Sunday of each month. At exactly ten o'clock in the morning, a woman shrouded in a black velvet cloak descends from her carriage to place a single rose on an unmarked grave. When Oscar and Marina decide to follow her, they begin a journey that transports them to a forgotten postwar Barcelona--a world of aristocrats and actresses, inventors and tycoons--an reveals a dark secret that lies waiting in the mysterious labyrinth beneath the city streets. Carlos Ruiz Zafon's haunting Marina has long been a cult classic in Spain and is now an international bestseller.

Adapted as a TV miniseries starring Rebecca Ferguson and Minnie Driver Her name is Dinah. In the Bible her fate is merely hinted at in a brief and violent detour within the verses of the Book of Genesis that recount the life of Jacob and his infamous dozen sons. The Red Tent is an extraordinary and engrossing tale of ancient womanhood and family honour. Told in Dinah's voice, it opens with the story of her mothers - the four wives of Jacob - each of whom embodies unique feminine traits, and concludes with Dinah's own startling and unforgettable story of betrayal, grief and love. Deeply affecting and intimate, The Red Tent combines outstandingly rich storytelling with an original insight into women's society in a fascinating period of early history and such is its warmth and candour, it is guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of women across the world. 'If you don't read it you'll be missing out' Eve 'I genuinely fell into this rich and colourful world and Dinah and Leah have stayed with me as ancestors and sisters brought to life by Anita Diamant's imaginative novel' Maureen Lipman
