I don't know.

Whenever I read a highly praised book and do not like it I keep wondering if I missed something, if I didn't "get" something.

There was nothing engaging about this novel. Yes, I kept reading but I didn't enjoy it. My inner devil kept sighing... about the cliched plot, the romanticized language and the horribly two-dimensional characters.
I tried to like this - I really did - but I don't think that I and Mr. Zafóns writing will ever become friends.

I had high hopes for this - that is why I give this only 2 stars...maybe a bit harsh but the longer I think about this book the more I hate it.
