the shadow of the wind

Postby Tora » Tue Jun 27, 2006 7:06 pm

the Shadow of the wind is a book after Carlos Ruis Zafon - spanish writer. I've heard about it so many times - but it's impossible to find a book in moscow bookshops. I see you guys here read decent literature. I heard that this exact book is extremely popular all over and people adore it much more than even Da Vinci Code (it was called page-turner). Tell me what you think of it!

If any connected thread exists, dear Moderator the Merciless :D , don't hesitate to delete this one! :wink:

I read this novel last year or two years ago (can't remember). Well, I loved it. The setting is Barcelona, and Tora if you can get a copy of the book you'll never regret it.

I really want to read it, I know how the cover looks like, who is the author, when it was written and where publushed, but I doubt it was translated in russian or at least I can't find copy in english. I'll do my best to find it! :!:

Thank you, Dixie!

All I know is that it's been translated to many languages, I don't know about Russian...

Good luck, Tora! ;) Hope you find it.

I don't know if it's great, but I loved it. It's a really successful novel. Like I said, it's been translated to many languages already.
