Within the first 6 pages of this book I fell in love Like this doesn t usually happen to me I don t usually fall in love with a book or writer that uick it usually takes a lot longer than it did Within 6 pages I had fallen madly in love with this I think it was definitely the writing something about it I don t think I can explain the feeling with this book I wanted to devour it all at once and then I also wanted to save it I did manage to drag out the reading of this book a little But honestly the whole writing it was perfect I think I can only describe it like that As you can tell I m totally fangirling over this I had to take a few hours break so I could like gather thoughts a few hours later I m still fangirling It was so perfect I just wanted to make a note about Carlos Ruiz Zafon s writing I am in loveThe book is set in parts as well as chapters the parts give you an idea of the date that that part of the story is set in as it does span over a few years from Daniel being a child to going into teenage adult times It also covers the time span of Juli n and his story so it does make it clear and there are ways you know when certain things happen for example when a character tells a story you know it is a story As I said there is little signs of changes of time and topic or plot within the story So it makes it easier to recogniseAs the blurb said it follows Daniel as he tries to discover the story of the author who wrote The Shadow of The Wind by Juli n Carax The story was complex but not confusing everything was explained and worked out through the story The plot was so amazing and it draws you in and you just want to turn the page over and over and before you know it you have finished the book I have loads of things I want to say about this book but I also don t want to put spoilers in so I may have to do a video review and fangirl the heck out of this bookDaniel I immediately connected with his character especially his love for that book because I think we all have that love for a certain book so I definitely got where he was coming from with that He was such a charming character and it was very interesting watching him grow up from a child to a teen slowly starting adulthood His interaction with different characters completely showed what kind of person he was Like when he goes to see Cara Who is blind sits and reads with her and he just does nice stuff Always seems to get punched for it likeJuli n he is I would say the other main character in this story and he is such an enigma and he is so fascinating and I love it I think along with Daniel I fell in love with the man from him Like he was so amazing and there is so much I want to say because I don t want to spoil it So that s all I can say about him because spoilerI loved all the characters in this book and I thought that they all had a nice part in the book and I liked them all well except the certain person who did the certain thing to a certain person See the spoiler problemI can t really say anything else about this book I may have to do a spoiler review on youtube Would you all like that Would you like to hear about my thoughts on this with spoilers Let me know

I gave this read a little over 100 pages and stopped to consult some reviews Negative reviews the very few of them reflected my perspective and as such I didn t see the issues I was having with the book changing so I called itIn spite of the flowery adjective filled writing substance is lacking The plot is slow it s hard to feel engaged with the characters and the mystery is boring I searched the reviews for page turner prior to purchase We must have been reading different books because this my friends is NOT a page turner It is actually the kind of book you pick up the next day start to read and realize you have forgotten where the character is now who he is having a conversation with etcThis is all subjective of course What inspired me to actually leave a negative review was the depiction of women in the story Female characters are either presented as large busted maternal old maids or alternatively described in terms of their waist of a manneuin classically proportioned calves or china doll s complexion By the end of my valiant 100 pages every time a new female appeared my eyes were already half rolled in preparation
