Step by step the narrative split into a thousand stories, as if it had entered a gallery of mirrors, its identity fragmented into endless reflections. I see how amazingly it is. It may categorised as Magical Realismbut the hard sad Realism of Barcelona, Spain after the Civil War drowned the Magical aspect, but there’s always that most real magic in it So yeah, I got teary sad eyes by the end and even nostalgic to the beginning of it Too much stories that split of the main plot just as the protagonist described The Shadow of the Wind he has read.
But the narrate came with too much descriptions and details that most carrlos it have a minor relation to the main story. The Story It’s a story about Books It’s a story about the Soul of Books The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes zfaon its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens. It’s a story about Tangled Characters and Fates. And it’s not only one with secrets And above all, there is SempereDaniel’s father who is one of the zagon fatherly characters I ever read I loved so much his relation with his son and its development through the time I looked at that man whom I had once imagined almost invincible; he now seemed fragile, defeated without knowing it.
Perhaps we were both defeated. I leaned over to cover him with the blanket he od been promising to give away to charity for years, and I kissed his forehead, as if by doing so I could protect him from the invisible threads that kept him away from me, from that tiny apartment, and from my memories. As if I believed that with that kiss I could deceive time and convince it to pass xo by, to return some other day, some other life.
A Sombra do Vento
It’s a story about Time God, this part always touching me deeply and dreading me As well There’s more I wish I tell but that’s already too much It gets under your skin and steals your soul without you knowing it. City of Shadows, Days of Ashes those are chapter titles, and it fit the background story of the Spanish Civil War and these days after the fall of Barcelona.
But the description and details of the city streets, the tram ,the gothic atmosphereeven the fictional Doors of the Cemetery of the Forgotten Books is very beautiful and unforgettable, The weather Mohammed Arabey from 14 December To 22 December View all 23 comments.

Whatever it was, it was enough to make me lose myself completely in the rich setting of midth century Barcelona, in the world of seductive dangerous power of literature and perils and passions of young love, a “Books are mirrors: Whatever it was, it was enough to make me lose myself completely in the rich setting of midth century Barcelona, in the world of seductive dangerous power of literature and perils and passions of young love, and the contrasts of idealistic innocence with the weariness of experience, all against the rich tapestry of the city full of beauty and secrets and vividness, all told in a lavish idiomatic language that makes you forget you’re reading a translation.
And over all of this gothic surreal passion turned into words hangs a real grim presence of those in power who can come after you whenever they please, and who will try to silence you whenever they feel like it. Narrated by a young Daniel Sempere, it chronicles his transformation from a child to a young man in a Francoist post-war Spain, his loves and obsessions, his brushes with the world of mysteries and reality – both of these worlds equally dangerous and fascinating. What was it exactly that made it so easy for me to overlook the imperfections and blemishes of this story – the not-uncommon sexist male gaze, the telenovela-like melodramatic developments, the sometimes strange choices of inserting exposition into the narrative flow.
The atmosphere is built on a classic Gothic setting. The foreboding darkness haunts the story, complete with foreshadowings, strange haunted old mansions, dark secrets waiting to be unearthed, feverish passions and dark past tormenting the characters, emotional epistolary confessions, menacing villains, and dark stormy nights in abundance. Shadows are everywhere, and things lurk in them, be sure of that.
And destiny seems to reach in with its meddling hand and place things in necessary to it order. And the tortured, passionate love stories – oh yes, they are here, too. And the pervasive sharp humor makes the story quite self-aware of its own stylized nature, making the elements that can easily turn annoying into fascinating bits instead. The plot twists are not pivotal. The reveals that come are not that important, and there are plenty of clues for the reader to come to the conclusions well before they are revealed.
Lovely, lovely book; not cralos but engrossing and beautiful, ruoz well-deserving of the attention it has received. Reading it is a quite an experience. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory to which, sooner or later—no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget — we will return.

The Shadow of the Wind reminds me of the movie A Very Long Engagement in atmosphere, mainland Europe in the aftermath evnto World War II, when the world sought closure and struggled for the normalcy as known before the war. In his search, he soon discovers the tragedy that is Julian Carax and the mystery that xombra Lain Coubert.
My only issue is riuz it gets quite long winded at times, especially the part when view spoiler [Nuria spills her guts, no pun intended, through a letter to Daniel. He’s a little awkward, a little bit of a dawg, and stubborn as only a teenager can be. So yeah, I like characters who feel human – generally good but a little selfish. This book has a lot of witty quotes and lessons on love, life, friendship and misery. It saves everyone the awkwardness, possibly even trauma, and the disruption of a pleasurable activity.

The story lingers in your mind hours and days after reading it, and I become nostalgic; zaon I could read it again for the first time. When Daniel Sempere first enters the labrythine “Cemetary of Forgotten Books”, he does not know that this single episode will change his life forever. Daniel discovers a novel entitled “Shadow of the Wind” and makes it his mission to find other books by its enigmatic author, Julian Carax.
When he learns that Carax’s novels have been systematically destroyed by an elusive stranger, Daniel must protect his volume from the flames. The more Daniel learns about Carax, the more he realizes the similarities and parallels between his own life and that of the author. Allot a good amount of time for this book, you will not be able to put it down.
Sep 10, Seth T. The problem with The Shadow of the Wind is that it tricked me into believing it was a great book by being so freaking fun. It is only now, after a month or so has passed since my reading, that I realize that No, The Shadow of the Wind was not a great book. But it was freaking fun.
