In an abandoned mansion at the heart of Barcelona, a young man, David Martin, makes his living by writing sensationalist novels under a pseudonym. Close to despair, he receives a letter from a reclusive French editor, Andreas Corelli, who makes him the offer of a lifetime--write a book unlike anything that has ever existed--a book with the power to change hearts and minds. In return, he will receive a fortune, and perhaps more. But as David begins the work, he realizes that there is a connection between his haunting book and the shadows that surround his home.… (mere)

> Le Jeu de l'ange, par Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Rencontre entre David, un jeune narrateur amateur de bonne littérature, et un éditeur qui semble être la réincarnation de Lucifer.
Après avoir fait le tour du monde des traductions avec L'Ombre du vent, le Catalan Carlos Ruiz Zafon a repris les mêmes recettes - le polar picaresque, façon Umberto Eco - pour signer ce Jeu de l'ange. Nous sommes dans la Barcelone des années 1920 en compagnie d'un jeune narrateur amateur de bonne littérature, David, dont la vie bascule lorsqu'il rencontre un mystérieux éditeur qui semble être la réincarnation de Lucifer. Quel pacte diabolique va réunir les deux hommes ? Réponse dans ce roman bondissant et rebondissant, au bout duquel David, le Faust des ramblas, sera vampirisé par ses propres rêves. Zafon sème le vent, et récolte le frisson. --L'Express

Plus a half star which might be credited to the translator Lucia Graves for a fabulous job. The tale is told in the first person but the voice is anything but straightforward; petty and weak willed and unreliable as seen from the inside, yet attracting strong friendships from clearly insightful people. The more I think back over the book, the more I see in it and the more I like it. Full of lots of different sorts of angels. ( )

En la turbulenta Barcelona de los años 20 un joven escritor obsesionado con un amor imposible recibe la oferta de un misterioso editor para escribir un libro como no ha existido nunca, a cambio de una fortuna y, tal vez, mucho más.

Not quite as good as The Shadow of the Wind, but a very compelling book. I would recommend it. ( )

Een schrijver vergeet nooit de eerste keer dat hij een paar munten of een loftuiting accepteert in ruil voor een verhaal. Nooit vergeet hij de eerste keer dat hij het zoete gif van de ijdelheid in zijn bloed voelt en gelooft dat, als hij er nu maar in slaagt zijn gebrek aan talent voor iedereen verborgen te houden, de droom van de literatuur in staat zal zijn hem een dak boven het hoofd te verschaffen, een warme maaltijd aan het einde van de dag en, waar hij het meest naar hunkert: zijn naam gedrukt op een miezerig stuk papier dat ongetwijfeld langer zal leven dan hij. Een schrijver is veroordeeld tot de herinnering aan dat moment, omdat hij dan al verloren is en zijn ziel een prijs heeft. In het turbulente Barcelona van de jaren twintig krijgt de jonge broodschrijver David Martín, geobsedeerd door een onmogelijke liefde, het aanbod van een mysterieuze uitgever om een boek te schrijven zoals nog nooit geschreven is, een boek dat de wereld zal veranderen. De tol die David hiervoor moet betalen is echter torenhoog. David, zijn vader bruut vermoord, zijn moeder niet meer dan een schim op afstand, raakt als kind verzeild in het Kerkhof der Vergeten Boeken. Daar stuit hij op het sinistere, religieuze boek Lux Aeterna, verschenen bij de Parijse uitgever Andreas Corelli Davids opdrachtgever en geschreven door ene Diego Marlasca. Ooit behoorde Davids huis met de toren toe aan deze onfortuinlijke advocaat, die zich geheel op het schrijven toelegde, tot hij onder duistere omstandigheden thuis om het leven kwam. Spoedig blijken er tussen hemzelf en Marlasca meer parallellen te bestaan dan David kon vermoeden ... Het spel van de engel is een labyrintisch verhaal vol intriges, verraad, vriendschap en tragedie, maar ook een verhaal over de gevaarlijke kunst van het schrijven en de macht van woorden.

The result is a twisty, sarcastic ode to books, with a satisfying dollop of religious theory thrown in for good measure. On its surface, "The Angel's Game" is a thriller laden with Gothic elements, but readers who need a traditional denouement with answers neatly laid out will come away disappointed. (I definitely had a little moment of "Wait! What? Huh???" at the end.)

But while the plot payoff may not be what readers are expecting, the novel itself is such a pleasure to read that the characters could have ended with a rendition of "The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow," played on cowbells and a zither, and I would have shrugged it off.

“Faust” this isn’t. Ruiz Zafón’s flamboyant pulp epic is something altogether sillier, a pact-with-the-devil tale whose only purpose is to give its readers some small intimation of the darker pleasures of the literary arts, the weird thrill of storytelling without conscience.
 
Game is a multi-layered confection that combines undying love, magical realism, meditations on religion, the importance of books and a love affair with the vibrant city of Barcelona.

Zafon hits the reset button on what it means to be a great writer. His visionary storytelling prowess is a genre unto itself.
tilføjet af sduff222 | RedigerUSA Today, Carol Memmott (Jun 16, 2009)
 
While much of this novel is highly enjoyable, at some latter point the tongue withdraws from the cheek. In wrapping up a host of absurd sub-plots, somewhere in there the writer loses his sense of humour. When the book ceases to be self-conscious about its own manipulations, it stops being fun. This won’t bother some readers; some will happily dive into the mysticism up to the neck. But others will miss the drollery and sophistication with which the novel began, and for these readers Zafón’s straight resolution will disappoint.
 
Zafon delivers a warning about the dangers of obsession, mixed with an obvious passion for literature and the printed word; his book is also a song of love for Barcelona with all its creaking floorboards and hidden subbasements.

A nice fit with the current craze for learned mysteries and for spooks of both the spying and the spectral kind.

It is part of our nature to survive. Faith is an instinctive response to aspects of existence that we cannot explain by any other means, be it the moral void we perceive in the universe, the certainty of death, the mystery of the origin of things, the meanings of our lives, or the absence of meaning. These are the basic and extremely simple aspects of existence, but our limitations prevent us from responding in an unequivocal way and for that reason we generate an emotional response, as a defense mechanism. It's pure biology.
An intellectual is usually someone who isn't exactly distinguished by his intellect. He claims that label to compensate for his inadequacies. It's as old as that saying: Tell me what you boast of and I'll tell you what you lack. Our daily bread. The incompetent always present themselves as experts, the cruel as pious, sinners as devout, usurers as benefactors, the small-minded as the patriots, the arrogant as the humble, the vulgar as elegant, and the feeble-minded as intellectual.
