Description du produit
Revue de presse
Zafón is a master storyteller, combining the postmodern and the traditional in an enchanting hymn to literature... Magnificent: a dizzying tale of drama, intrigue and passion(Mail on Sunday)
A colossal, genre-crossing achievement... it is to be hoped that Zafon's next books deal as seriously and enjoyable with the present and future of Barcelona. (Guardian)
Moving and engaging. This is a novel to lose oneself in, and it promotes the sort of reading experience we remember from childhood - of complete absorption into a fantasy world (Irish Times)
Rich, ambitious storytelling. (Sunday Times)
Sprawling, seductive and hugely atmospheric (Sunday Express)
Neither too geeky nor too highbrow, Zafon's genre-mashing novels provide a high-definition, alternative account of Spain's turbulent 20th-century history, with added Hollywood blockbuster thrills. I was hooked. (Daily Mail)
This is a suspenseful story of loss, betrayal and redemption. (Independent)
By the author of the brilliant Shadow of the Wind, this is a good long read to relish on chilly winter evenings. (Saga)

Having read the whole saga I believe that the first book the shadow of the wind was the best,perhaps because it introduced us in the magic world of Barcelona and Spain or because as it was something different from what we were used to read from Spanish authors,it is difficult to say,nevertheless the author kept his high standards through his four books and concluded in a beautiful and nice way.The book can be read on its own but it is better to read all four in the sequence presented by its author.

The Labyrinth of the Spirits is the fourth and final book in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series, and it’s a very strong ending to the intertwined stories of literary intrigue and complex characters. I don’t want to give away any of the plot - I didn’t know much going into it, and I’m glad, because this story had more layers than an onion, and it was a magical experience to be able to peel them away one by one. All of the characters from previous books feature in the story - Daniel, Bea, little Julian, old Sempere, Isaac, many of their neighbours from Shadow, Carax, and of course the absolutely wonderful Fermin Romero de Torres, who has to be one of the funniest and warmest characters ever created. I would have liked a little more Daniel and Bea if I'm honest. There are also new characters, led by the tough and enigmatic Alicia Gris, a kind of Lisbeth Salander of times gone by.
It’s a long and complex story set against the dark backdrop of Franco’s Spain. The writing, translated as beautifully as ever by Lucia Graves, is sumptuous and delicious to read (aside from a couple of clunky bits, which I forgive). This book comes a close second to Shadow and I will probably need to read it again.
I’m feeling a little emotional that it’s all over. Might have to go and read Shadow for a ninth time...
The interweaving threads of the story are complex. We begin with the heroine of much of the book, Alicia, being rescued by the inimitable Fermin during a bombing raid, in which she is permanently wounded in the side, carrying her pain wherever she goes thereafter. We meet her again as an adult working during the Franco regime for the political police as an agent, one of the best; but she's had enough and wants out, once she's dealt with a final case. That involves the disappearance of a Government minister, Valls. During her quest to locate Valls she teams up with an incorruptible colleague; she gradually discovers that she's being set up by her own bosses, who turn out to be evil incarnate. It has to be said that the level of cold-blooded violence, involving the extremes of man's inhumanity to man, is deep in this book - no comfort read here! Be prepared for graphic descriptions of torture, murder, suffering.
Alicia is a highly intelligent and resourceful, if enigmatic, agent: it's good to see a woman taking centre stage in this darkly machismo world.
Once she tracks down Valls and uncovers a history of the abuse of children and their families at the highest level of government; once she discovers how Daniel's mother Isabella was murdered; once she dispatches her enemies with cold-blooded ruthlessness, she escapes herself, about two-thirds of the way through the book. There are cliffhangers galore in these pages, surprise after surprise, all brilliantly controlled and written: a visceral thriller. From then on, the focus shifts to Daniel, his quest to find the truth about his family, his relationship with his son Julian. It is Julian who winds up the novel in an interesting episode of meta-fiction that includes the mysterious Julian Carax, co-author, it seems, of the present quartet.
The translation flows like a dream. The whole enterprise is a significant and remarkable, not to say unique, achievement. The kind of book that draws you into it world - dark, funny, tender, mysterious - and never lets you go.
Don't even consider it, dear reader.
Buy it. It changed my world. Odds are it'll change tours.
The book is overly long (twice the length of Shadow and Angel's Game, and three times the length of Prisoner of Heaven) and it is so slow paced that it is at times a chore to read. There are a number of different plot lines, some of which don't really go anywhere, and three villains who are never developed at all - the likes of Valls and Fumero in previous books were fun to hate while the antagonists in this one are just kind of... there to act menacing/insane for no real reason. The main plot of the missing person is mostly dropped for the last half of the book meaning there is no central focus to drive the story forward and it ends up meandering around creating weird relationships between characters and wrapping up the numerous threads in unsatisfying and sometimes unbelievable ways.
The story jumps around between different viewpoints with little consistency, but the bulk of the book is told from the perspective of Alicia who I found to be rather dull and repetitive. She also isn't developed very well, even though throughout the book she probably had more pages than expertly developed Daniel, David and Fermin had in previous titles, and I found myself not caring what happened tk her and feeling baffled that the other characters cared so much about her fate.
The final 50 pages are a sort of bizarre and lengthy epilogue which tries to tie up the entire series and left me with a sour taste, partly because it was bad and partly because it makes it seem as though this may be the last time we see this world and these characters, and it feels sad to leave it on such a low.
It’s a great whodunnit mystery story .
It’s a fabulous evocation of a time and place.
It’s a beautiful love story.
It poses deep questions about the things we value and how we should respect them.
It’s an eye popping look at post Civil War Spanish history.
It scared me at times and also made me laugh out loud numerous times as the dialogue sizzles with snappy lines throughout.
I have read the previous three books in this series a number of times and read them all again in order to set this fourth instalment up properly.
Shadow of the Wind is one of my all time favourite books and still delights.
The Angels Game was a worthy follow up but veered a bit too far into the fantastical for my taste.
The Prisoner of Heaven was avidly awaited and, while enjoyable, felt a bit as though it had been hurried out to keep us happy. The ending felt like a set up for book 4.
Well Book 4 is like all the previous three combined , but better!
Hard to imagine I know but it is that big and that good. The characters remain marvellous and the feeling for me was that this is the book that was originally envisaged but the other three had to be written first. The ending is perfect and might induce a tear.
I really cannot recommend this too highly. If you enjoyed any of the earlier books, you will love this.
