I loved his previous book 'The Shadow of the Wind', and his new book is not bad, but it just does not have the same 'novelty' effect of Shadow. There is a lot of continuity between the two books, the first one illuminating some aspect of the second, the latter filling in some gap in the first. But I just cannot shake the view that the story is somewhat of a repeat. The central doomed love story, the ghostly spectre, the hidden book, the haunted house. It is well done, and an enjoyable read, but I will always prefer Shadow.
