    Vindens skygge af Carlos Ruiz Zafón (souloftherose)
    souloftherose: The Shadow of the Wind has the same sense of mystery and suspense as The Prince of Mist and I think it's a better example of Zafon's writing

This is my second book by Zafón (after Marina) and I love his writing and the way he captured my attention without having a very complex plot or detailed descriptions of the world. In fact, what I like most are the characters, particularly Max and Roland because they gave life to the whole plot, essentially, making things happen.
I'll definitely read more of Carlos Ruiz Zafón's work!

I'm not entirely sure when or where I picked this up, or indeed why. The cover isn't something that would really appeal to me, the synopsis isn't one which would normally grab my attention and I have to admit that the fact it is a YA novel would put me off a bit. It's not that I have anything against YA novels, I just hadn't read one before and I just assumed that they wouldn't float my boat. So where the book comes from is a mystery, it's pre-owned so I either found it or bought it by accident in a charity shop. Anyway, I grabbed it off my bookcase and decided to give it a shot.

I can't say that I have ever read a book like this before, the closest thing I can think of is Stone Junction by Jim Dodge and I only mention that because of the fantasy elements to the story. The book is set during the war and although the theme is repeated a few times in a round about kind of way, it doesn't feel like it is set during the war. Also the place it is set kind of feels like a no-where land with bits of many countries springing to mind while I was reading it. This really helps the book in my opinion because it makes the fantasy elements of the story work better than if it had been set somewhere I could relate directly to.

None of the characters are particularly well developed but then this is a short book and at no point did I feel like I needed to know more about the characters with the exception of Mrs Carver. In fact, in many ways the more mysterious the history of the people involved the better it is. We find out very little about Mrs Carver which is a shame because it feels like she is in the story just because the author felt like she was required to make the numbers up. The plot does meander in places which can be a little frustrating and the bickering between the children early on the book is repeated a few too many times for my liking.

Despite this being a YA book, at no point did it feel like I was reading something that was overly simplified. The story is clearly suited to younger readers but I still found it an enjoyable book to read and would have no hesitation in recommending it to an adult. The creepy parts are creepy enough and towards the end I found myself rushing to the conclusion so I could find out how it all ends. ( )

Although this book is written for kids, I still enjoyed it. Carlos Ruiz Zafon has magic in his pen and it was present even in this, his first novel. I will read everything he writes. By the way, if you have not read Shadow of the Wind, you are missing one of the most imaginative and original novels in a long time. Think Charles Dickens meets Edgar Allan Poe.... ( )

It wasn't really ok. It was trite and predictable and adolescent. Never mind. It doesn't stop Shadow of the Wind being one of the best books ever. ( )

I hadn't intended on reading this as I normally avoid the young adult genre, but it was 20p!

The father of the family decides that they need to move from the city to the coast because of the war. They move into a house that has already known tragedy.

Max starts to explore the immediate vicinity and finds a odd garden with creepy statues. He befriends Roland, adoptive grandson of the lighthouse keeper, and they explore a wreck just off the coast that his grandfather survived.

Strange things start to happen in the house, ending with a sister in hospital in a coma. Max, Roland and his other sister start to learn more about the truth and are told about the Prince of the Mist, a nasty character who was thought to have drowned on the ship as well.

Some of this was good, Zafon make it really creepy and disturbing at points. But I found the ending really implausible and not in fitting with the rest of the book. ( )

Once The Prince of Mist gets moving, though, Zafón's real strength shines through: chills. There are some genuinely, deliciously scary sequences that will thrill young readers, particularly if they, like me, have a thing about clowns. And by "thing about", I mean "terrified hatred of". The unevenness here is probably that of a first-time novelist finding his feet, but there are treats enough for an enjoyable read.
