Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I’d read Zafon’s The Name of the Wind, a brilliant adult novel blending Gothic horror and magic realism, but I wasn’t aware that Zafon actually began his career writing middle grade fantasies.

The Prince of Mist was his first book, and it did not disappoint. The Carver family decides to leave their urban home in Spain to escape the war. They move to a small beach town which has more than its share of secrets.

Young Max discovers that their new family house was owned by a doctor and his wife, whose son drowned many years before. There is a strange walled garden behind the house, filled with creepy statues of circus performers. There is a shipwreck just off the coast, and a strange old man who runs the town lighthouse. The town clock runs backwards.

Strange voices whisper in the house.

El Principe de la Niebla: Carlos Ruiz Zafon: : Books

Max and his sister Alicia soon meet a new friend named Roland, whose parents died in a tragic accident when he was small. Together, the three of them begin to unravel the mystery surrounding the town, which is entwined with an evil force from the past — an entity known as the Prince of Mist.

If you like quick, creepy czrlos with mystery and menace, The Prince of Mist is for you. It will keep you turning the pages, and probably leaving your lights on, late into the night.

January Third Read: The sound effects add a creepy factor to the story at times. After the first years of youth comes the second period, in which a person becomes aware of the fragility of life and what begins like a simple niggling doubt rises inside you like a flood of uncertainties that will stay with you for the rest of your xarlos.

Finally, toward the end of life, the period of acceptance begins, and, consequently, of resignation, a time of waiting. It appeared to be an abandoned garden. A garden of statues. Max was hypnotised by the strange vision of the figures trapped in the undergrowth, locked inside a walled garden that reminded him of a village graveyard. It is so easy to sink into his stories and get lost, and this one is no exception. It isn’t my favorite of his novels. I couldn’t get as into it even though I enjoyed the story.


I remember reading the author’s note and afterwards being very impressed with this a first novel. With this and each of the his other ones Watcher, Midnight Palace, Mariana you can see his writing grow each time and him honing his craft.

Nniebla los juro, es un don. Si quieren algo un poco retorcido y oscuro pero corto y ligero lean Marina. View all 9 comments. View all 3 comments. Now that he has achieved fame his publisher is bring these back in English translation, some of which won YA awards in Spain.

I picked it up without knowing it was a YA book.

So within the first few pages we have a railway station clock running backwards. At first the family is unaware that the last boy who lived in that house drowned. We have a sunken ship in shallow water that the kids dive to and pick up treasures; a cemetery of circus freak statues that move and change position; an evil cat that sends a little girl into a coma; an ancient mariner who built his own lighthouse; an old film projector in the basement and old films that start showing current prjncipe.

His mind went blank, his mouth sagged, and his eyes glazed over. This novel was originally written for people at all ages, but it was published as a YA novel.

It is the first book ever written by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and carlox is a ghost story! All of the above-mentioned reason made me curious to read it and see if it would scare me as much as I was hoping for.

Having now read it, I have to admit that while it was a good enough story, it was also quite predictable, and it didn’t scare me at all. I’m not even sure that it would’ve scared me when I was younger, just This novel was originally written for people at all ages, but it was published as a YA novel.

I’m not even sure that it would’ve scared me when I was younger, just because it contains so many of the scary elements that you are used to in horror fiction. In my opinion, you can sense that this is Zafon’s first written novel. The story isn’t that strong, and the characters are rather flat. Still, it did entertain me, and it is after all a very short read, so definitely pick it up principr you are a fan of Zafon or czrlos you just happen to be interested in this ghost story. Es lo primero que leo del autor y no me arrepiento de haber empezado con su primer trabajo.


Leerlo en Halloween fue un plus! So yeah, it’s creepy. As soon as the creepiness is explained, I was fine, so it really was just a few early scenes, but I’m an anticipation person and the unknown creeps me out.

Anyway, it’s a translated book, and that occasionally shows with awkward turns of phrase. But there are also some really lovely phrases that impressed me so much that I had to grab a pen. Really beautiful writing at times. I liked that this combined a nonspecific location with historical fiction and the paranormal element.

There’s a lot going here.

And I’ll put it on my maybe booktalk list for next time I hit the middle rpincipe. My life is so hard. View all 13 comments. This was my first Ruiz book and it was fantastic!

It almost had an Alfred Hitchcock feel to it. Um… so no one thought to ring the police carlod tell any grown-ups what just happened? Beautiful writing, seriously 3. Beautiful writing, seriously this book was cinematic. I took down so many quotes from this book, it was gorgeous.

The prince of mist. OK Max, you had the right idea in this book. But ignoring that, I really liked you. I liked that you loved films and that you were a great little brother and that you were a bit disgruntled with being third wheel.

I also liked that you got out of breath when you rode your bike up carloe hill. Because that is me. So if we ruz to be friends, and I hope we will be, we could just maybe go for a leisurely walk. Death of a Clown by The Kinks. Not really anything to do with this book but, well, I really hate clowns. Also, I had no idea what other song I could use for this book.

El Principe de La Niebla

Also x2 I love The Kinks. Coming from a city and avoiding the Manchester Ship Canal like the plague, my fear was manageable. I could quite happily avoid seeing them. That was until I went to university. You may or may not know that I went studied in Bangor, North Wales. Yes… that Aled Jones. And it can boast some fantastic honorary fellows such pprincipe Richard Attenborough, Rhys Ifans, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Philip Pullman been in the same room as him twice and yes, fangirled myself out and… and Carol Vorderman.

It is also known for fantastic degrees in psychology and marine biology due to its location and the close proximity it has to the Menai Straits.
