The Angel's Game - Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Lucia Graves

Zafon's earlier book, The Shadow of the Wind, is one of my favorite books. I love how it was written and the mesmerizing hold it had on me. Because of this, I looked forward with great pleasure to reading this book. While the writing is still excellent (for the most part), the story is so grim and ultimately hopeless that I cannot recommend it to anyone.


Avoid. Avoid. Do not pick up this book.
