Book Review: The Shadow of the Wind
Mercy me! I thought I published this weeks ago! All this time I thought I had already shared with you guys this awesome new book that I read! I read this book only because I randomly grabbed it at the library and found out it met a requirement for Megan's Book Challenge. What luck! Because I loved it. I admit, it was a struggle at times, and it took me a while to really get into it, but this book has stayed with me in so many way. So epic. So amazing. Please read.
Here's the brief review I wrote over a month ago...
This story will sweep you away. Set in postwar Barcelona, the story weaves through years and generations around a mysterious writer, a book lover, a lost mother, a loyal friend, a sinister villain and a forbidden love affair. The epic romance of the setting and characters will seep into your soul and leave you begging for more. The mystery will haunt you and the love story will break your heart.
You don't find this book. It finds you.
Recommended for lovers of literature and epic tales.
