it was amazing
Read from May 03 to 10, 2012

I cannot remember when I've enjoyed a book as much as this one. I couldn't wait to find out what happened and yet I didn't want it to end. If I hadn't known that this was a transalation, I would never have guessed it. The translation was excellent, no awkward sentences. The story flowed smoothly and moved quickly. I love a book with good twists and turns. This one certainly has that. I hesitated giving it 5 stars because I think I've done that too easily in the past. I think this well deserved the full 5 stars. A friend has recommended The Angel's Game also by Ruiz Zafon. When I was looking that up, I was excited to see that he's writen quite a few books. I will definitely be on the lookout for more of his books. What a find! I can't believe I had never heard of this before and only picked it up in Goodwill. I guess everyone who's read it has held on to their copy. This one is a bit yellowed and dog-eared, but trust me, I'll be holding on to it!
