I read about this book in a book review and hunted it down. It is truly fabulous. I agree with other reviewers that it is marvelously written.

It has been described as depressing and sad, and normally I shy away from books like that. However, I did not find this book to be depressing. Sad yes, but not in the way that is hopeless or for a sadness without purpose.

I also enjoyed this book because I love Barcelona and I could envision the streets. A little this reminded me of The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon in evoking Barcelona in a similar time period.

If I had read this when I was younger (late teens, early 20s) it probably would have been one of those I reread frequently.
