En un mundo de luces y sombras, todos, cada uno de nosotros, debía encontrar su propio camino.

Lo primero que tengo que decir es que con los libros de Carlos Ruiz Zafón no puedo ser imparcial. Yo amo todo lo que escribe este señor y aún cuando esta trilogía juvenil es previa a sus novelas más vendidas, El Cementerio de los Libros Olvidados, ya mostraba su gran talento.
Un universo infinito de libros ascendía en espiral babilónica hac

No hay nada, NADA, que yo pueda decir que le haga justicia a esta, o cualquier otra obra del autor, pero lo voy a intentar...

Ustedes pueden decir lo que quieran sobre que a todas las novelas que tiene CRZ y que me he leído, les he dado 5 estrellas, pero la magia que el autor es capaz de brindar a través de las paginas es única en este planeta. Los personajes y los lugares tan tenebrosos, así como las historias que engloban cada una de sus obras me absorben de un modo que ningún otro autor puede

I decided to lower the rating.

I always get a great satisfaction out of going into a W.H. Smith’s book shop in any of the English airports and looking to see the latest books on offer. I saw this book the other week and the blurb took my fancy. I rather liked the idea of:

An enigmatic toymaker who lives as a recluse in an old mansion, surrounded by the fantastical beings he has created. An eerie figure that watches from behind the curtains of a locked room. Strange things that flicker through th

Nothing else to add that I haven't said below so I'll second my recommendation for this and add my thoughts on the narrator.

Jonathan Davis has narrated audio-books of Carlos Ruiz Zafon before and each time he has done very well. He has a good instinct for voices and the atmosphere of his works. (Wish he had narrated 'prisoner of heaven' like with the other two). The story comes alive with his loving (for lack of a better word) narration.

I hope Mister Davis continues to narrate for this author, h

Es el que más me gustó de la trilogía !! Y por eso se merece ese puntaje.!!

A pesar del poco tiempo que he tenido estos días para leer, lo he disfrutado muchísimo!!

El autor es un genio!! Te envuelve en unas escenas de película.! Por momentos no sabía si estaba leyendo o estaba con los protagonistas en Cravenmoore.!!

9,5 de 10*

“As Luzes de Setembro” findam a trilogia Neblina e terminam igualmente a minha leitura de toda a obra publicada de Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Ainda bem que terminei com este livro, porque me redimiu da última leitura (“O Palácio da Meia-Noite”) que esteve longe de me encher as medidas… Já esta história voltou a colocar Zafón em lugar de destaque na literatura mundial, na minha opinião! Este autor escreve de uma maneira tão própria e tão boa!

Las luces de septiembre, tercera parte de la saga "Niebla" escrito por Carlos Ruiz Zafón. Una trama impactante, engancha desde la primera frase. Sus personajes no paran de sorprender al lector, a evolucionar y a crecer. Desde siempre me ha fascinado la pluma de Zafón, por lo que disfruto al máximo de sus historias y las recomiendo con los ojos cerrados, porque te desarma completamente con la capacidad que tiene de crear historias increíbles.

Questo romanzo mi è piaciuto dall'inizio alla fine.
L'ho iniziato senza leggere prima la trama, in questo modo ogni pagina era un passo verso una scoperta nuova. Tutto ciò ha fatto si di non avere verso questo libro grandi aspettative.
Questo racconto è iniziato in un ambiente tranquillo che faceva immaginare ad una storia dominata dalla magia più innocente che esista al mondo ma andando avanti il tepore lasciato dai primi capitoli ha lasciato lo spazio all'inquietudine e malvagità delle ombre pre

The stories in this young adult series aren't connected at all. They all have a great sense of mystery and fantasy, but one is set in Spain, the other in India, and this one in France.
How much better than Prince of Mist this book is! I couldn't put it down. His characters are REAL! REAL I tell you. There's so much emotion in his words I don't know how Ruiz Zafon can keep cranking stories like this one.
Easier to relate than The Midnight Palace, this story gives us a glimpse of Andreas Corelli,

Mesmo quando escreve um livro cujo público alvo são os adolescentes, Carlos Ruiz Zafón dá uma verdadeira lição de escrita a todos. Aquilo que ele cria é tão envolvente, que só prova que não existem livros para idades específicas: quando uma obra é boa, qualquer pessoa irá apreciá-la.
Este é o terceiro e último volume da trilogia do Príncipe da Neblina e, para mim, foi sem dúvida o melhor de todos.
O cenário criado, as personagens cativantes e todo o mistério envolvente transportaram-me para uma a

This is the third book by this author that I have read and I should have stopped after the first. I feel like I just read a bunch of stuff and have no idea what happened. I think perhaps something has been lost in translation? Shadows and doppelgangers and toymakers and this child's history and that one's and masks and machines. Lots of broken glass and explosions at the end, and I could clearly envision a movie scene with the automatons burning, but other than that I'm not sure what happened. I ...more

*Línea 7b. Libro con un mes en el título.*

Me pasó lo mismo que en el anterior, dos capítulos y ya sabía para dónde iba la historia y el posible final. Sin embargo, me gustó muchísimo. Creo que es mi favorito de la trilogía porque hay de todo, amor, tristeza, drama, suspenso, ira, esperanza, venganza....todo para no soltar el libro hasta saber como termina todo.
Y tiene unos capítulos increíbles, parece un momento tranquilo y en las últimas páginas explota algo para que continues leyendo.

No es lo mejor que leí del autor, sin embargo me gustó mucho. Es un libro de misterio para pasar el rato, se lee muy rápido y como siempre zafón nos sorprende con sus palabras que forman imagenes y sentimientos muy humanos.
El libro narra sobre una madre y dos hijos que se van a vivir a un pueblo donde trabajaban para un fabricante de juguetes. Al igual que casi todos los libros de zafón la historia gira en torno a los personajes y su pasado. En especial la de este peculiar señor cuya vida es un

1937. France.

Recently widowed Simone takes up a position in a mysterious mansion at the sea belonging to a solitary toy maker and populated by his ingenious machinery. Her teenage daughter befriends a local boy and they soon uncover a decades old mystery and haunting shadows that threaten the lives of her entire family.

After the relative disappointment of Zafon's short story THE ROSE OF FIRE I decided to approach another one of his early novels and was very totally enamoured again with his writi

(English translation: The Watcher in the Shadows)

Somewhere between Jane Eyre and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Watcher in the Shadows (third in the Fog trilogy), is a gothic triumph. With elements of The Turn of the Screw, Ruiz Zafon's tale of mystery and Faustian bargains enchants in its eccentric and enigmatic world. Two stories of true love create the centerpiece for this creepy, twisted tale. Set in a picturesque, coastal French village, The Watcher in the Shadows entwines teenage r

The third and final young adult book written by Zafón during the early part of he’s career.
Just like the previous two (though not connected) it’s wonderfully written story with lots of great fantastical, mysterious and creepy elements.

I loved the fast paced nature of this book, the descriptive atmospheric setting is stunning. Especially the automated toys.
With such a great setting, it’s a slight shame that the characters feel a little weak. I wasn’t too concerned with their plight.

Terceiro livro da trilogia "Niebla"

Reedição da última entrega da série para jovens-adultos, elaborada um ano após o "Palácio da Meia-Noite" (1994), pela "pena" de Carlos Ruiz Zafón.

Toda a escrita segue a linha do anterior volume, bem mais "zafoniana" que a presente em "O Príncipe da Neblina" (1993). Sente-se claramente a evolução do autor, cada vez mais ligado ao sobrenatural, às sombras e ao gótico.

É interessante que as personagens habitem num cenário semelhante ao do primeiro volume conjugado

Me he acabado el libro y debo decir que me ha gustado.

Lo empecé con una mezcla extraña de ilusión y miedo. Ilusión por leer un libro más del autor (que me cautivó con su magnífica obra la Sombra del Viento) pero con cierto miedo por ser una obra juvenil (como tenía entendido que era este libro). En contra de estas reticencias tenía la inestimable recomendación de un amigo de toda a vida y compañero de lecturas de libros de terror que se lo había leido y que me lo había regalado en mi aniversario

I love the writing of Carlos Ruiz Zafon. And his stories and ideas. His books always catch me and I don't want to stop reading and I don't want the books to end. This one ended too fast, not just because I enjoyed it too much but because the story rushed through too fast. There would have been a lot more potential for suspense and character development.

Zadnji, i po mojoj ocjeni,najbolji dio trilogije.Ideja o tvornici igračaka koje izgledaju kao da su žive,izazvat će jezu i kod "najneotpornijeg" čitatelja.
Ovom zadnjim knjigom priznajem da sam prilično zasićena Zafonovim sjenama,mračnim zakutcima i nadnaravnim.
Do slijedećeg susreta...
Jack Stark
This was enjoyable, but not as good as I had expected. I dunno, I had heard lots of good things about this author so I think I went in with a little too high of an expectation. The story has lots in it for only 256 pages. So much so that I felt aspects were a little underdeveloped. I expected something with much more atmosphere than what I got. But, as I said, still an enjoyable story full of mystery, magic, killer monsters and a mysterious hermit man.

The watcher in the shadows is my favorite instalment of the Niebla trilogy! While reading this series I got the pleasure of seeing how the writing of Carlos Ruiz Zafon has developed and got better from one book to the other! Now that I've read all of his works I can't wait to see what he is gonna write next! It's always a pleasure to read a story from such a talented author!
Luis Zamarro Fraile
Zafón lo hace de nuevo y nunca se puede tener suficiente con un narrador tan lleno de recursos y de maestría para contar la misma historia de mil diferentes maneras.

La fórmula Zafoniana: Sombras, niebla, personajes siniestros que se valen de juguetes para atormentar a sus protagonistas mientras dos adolescentes se enamoran perdidamente y luego se separan...qué decir de una embriagante atmósfera cerca del mar y la nostalgia que evoca la pérdida de la juventud...simplemente genial y envolvente.

This was the third and probably my favorite of Zafon's young adult series. A steampunk type theme of a reclusive toy maker with a house full of automatons, it was spooky and fun. It kept me page turning until the end, and although the characters were a little flat, the themes of young love, loss, and finding yourself are prevalent throughout the entire book and are well written. Zafon's writing can never be called boring, but as I've said before, he writes adult books so beautifully, it seems al ...more
