The Angel's Game

The Angel's Game - Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Lucia Graves “And yet, as Sempere told me, every book has a soul, the soul of the person who wrote it and the soul of those who read it and dream about it.”

If this is true, this book has my soul. I am completely blown away, left speechless and in awe. This is one of those rare books that you know you’ll never forget and will most likely find yourself missing for the first few days after finishing it. It is that good.

I don’t have the adequate words to express how this book touched me. Something about it, that I can’t place, grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go – so that even when I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. It’s one of those books that absorbs you and become your world until they’re done. At one point, there was something I didn’t like all that much, that I thought would be the one thing that made the book not perfect – but in the end, it did end up being exactly right. So, yes, exactly perfect.

It is not lightly that I say that this is one of the books that has surely most marked my reading life so far. I’m now forever a fan of Carlos Ruiz Zafón and absolutely worship this work of his.

In complete awe.
