Young Daniel lives in post-war Barcelona in the early 1900s. He is introduced to the book The Shadow of the Wind by Julian Carax and is enthralled. He uncovers a mystery about the author and seeks the truth about what really happened to him.
Book burning, forbidden love (past and present), murder, fear, deception and humor are all presented in a beautifully flowing manner.
Daniel and Julian’s lives intertwine in an unusual and totally unexpected way. I loved the descriptions and intricacies on every page. I highly recommend this book.
