    After reading The Shadow of the Wind I was left with somewhat mixed feelings On the one hand this is such a beautifully written book and is in essence an ode to literature On the other hand there are some serious flaws which distracts from the whole experience The best thing about the book in my opinion is Zafon's skill in artistic writing It reminds me of why I love to read in the first place and makes me wish I could write as beautiful as this The book contains lots of memorable uotes as well definitely

    The fact is that I’ll never be able to write a real review for this book Here is why 1 I’m not good enough I’m not now and I’ll never be It doesn’t matter how many books you have read or how smart you are you’ll never be good enough for that You won’t be able to find exact words and it’s not just you Only person who can is the author himself but I think he already said everything he wanted Don’t believe me? “Books are mirrors you only see in them what you already have inside you” “The m

    I can't believe someone actually published this book Even worse in my opinion is the fact that this book is on the New York Times Bestseller List How is this possible? It must only mean that there are a lot of people out there that think very differently from me Don't you be one of them Seriously Don't be fooled by this book It is insipid lame and poorly written First The prose is so overblown that the author uses three adjectives for every single noun Count them He evidently was told that to be a writer you have to make everything as
