'It will entrance and move you and make you chuckle. You couldn't ask for more.' Sunday Age 'Richly written, historically fascinating, always entertaining...and slightly mad.' West Australian 'An unforgettable novel about the forgotten.' Adelaide Advertiser 'The seductions of narrative, for Zafon, are not unlike the allures of erotic love. He actually succeeds in making bookishness sexy.' Weekend Australian 'A big, thrilling romp through glorious Barcelona.' Courier-Mail 'Masterful, meticulous plotting...a love letter to literature, intended for readers as passionate about storytelling as its young hero.' Who Weekly 'Glorious, grandiose fun. It's a haunting, fast-paced thriller with enough twists and turns to hold a Dan Brown fan's attention, enough spookiness to satisfy lovers of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, with grotesques worthy of Dickens and some lovely, evocative writing.' Herald on Sunday 'Carlos is a natural-born storyteller.' Good Reading 'Marvellously evocative.' Sydney Morning Herald 'His enterprise is bold, serious and shocking. His treatment of Spain's tortured history in the 20th century is as significant as his literary skill. These are things that belong not just to one city but to the world.' The Times (UK)
