The Shadow of the Wind Book Review

The Shadow of the Wind, written by Spanish author Carlos Ruiz Zafon, is an addictive modern gothic novel you must read. Read on for a brief review of The Shadow of the Wind. The moment I started reading it, I knew I would not be able to put it down until I finished. The author introduces you to so many different characters, and each character introduces a whole new sub plot to the story. It’s an intricately-woven, gripping read that anyone in search of a great evening read will positively love.

Carlos Ruiz Zafon also wrote two accompanying books called The Angel’s Game and The Prisoner of Heaven. Technically, the three books form a trilogy, but you don’t actually have to read them in order to stay on board with the story. I first learned of the books from British beauty and lifestyle blogger Katie Snooks and have since recommended the trilogy to a dozen of coworkers, friends, and family members.

The trilogy is available at Chapters Indigo, Barnes & Noble, and nearly anywhere books are sold. You can also download at least the first book on your eBook reader. Personally, I read through the first two books in paperback and the third book in hardcover.

Have you read any books by Carlos Ruiz Zafon? Do you have any suggestions as to what book I should read next? Help me out, wonderful readers!
