The Prisoner of Heaven (2011)
language
English
3.92 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: The Prisoner of Heaven had such promise, but the ending left me very unsatisfied. Echoing the sentiment of others - it felt like a bridge to future books rather than a complete work of its own. TPoH was also missing the author's usual flair for prose. I felt like I had to finish ...

review 1: I loved the "Shadow of the Wind" and highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good historical mystery/romance. This is top-notch literature set in Franco's fascist Barcelona . It reminded me of the film "Pan's Labyrinth ", which I also love because of it's spooky ambience and fo...

review 1: I love Carlos' work. He must be one of a handful of authors whose work I will buy and read (and am excited to read) without really caring too much what it is about. However, I feel this book is not his best. I think the only reason I finished it, was because my OCD wouldn't allow...

review 1: En lineas generales el libro me ha parecido bueno. La historia en si está bastante bien, pero a mi parecer se queda un poco corta. Cuando llega el final pasa todo muy deprisa sobre todo la muerte de Roland. Lo bueno que tiene Carlos Ruiz Zafon es que a la hora de leerte sus libr...

review 1: COMPLETAMENTE VICIANTE!
review 2: 3.5 stars. Not as poetic as the previous book but still enjoyable.

language

review 1: Sin duda el mejor libro de Zafón es la sombra del viento. Yo lo dudaba; leyendo esto lo confirmo.
review 2: A freaky story of fallen angels and cursed cities.
Ängelns lek (2008)

review 1: I found it naive, full of clichés and common places. Some parts of the book were interesting and it does transmit a certain degree of beauty in the descriptions. It never falls down in terms of rythm, it is always flowing and I found that Isabella's character and the tension she ...

review 1: Une déception, une lecture agréable mais frustrante au possible.
review 2: Weer een mooi Ruiz Zafón boek. Wou dat ik door het Kerkhof der Vergeten Boeken kon wandelen...

review 1: Posso dire che questo libro non mi ha fatto impazzire come "L'OMBRA DEL VENTO", ho riapprezzato il modo di scrivere di Zafón , e ho riamato tutti i personaggi. Nel prigioniero del cielo si parla principalmente della storia di Fermìn e della mamma di Daniel... Ma lo stesso ti pren...
Himlens fånge (2011)
language
English

review 1: Carlos Ruiz Zafón me parece uno de los autores contemporáneos más interesantes, pero esta novela suya me parece también por momentos precipitada, poco meditada, con una trama menos lograda que aquellas a las que nos tiene acostumbrados en otros libros suyos. No obstante, creo que...

review 1: This book had been sitting on my 'to read' shelf for quite some time, always pushed lower by other books that took priority and were more of a 'have to read it now' quality. I had picked it up on the discount table as an impulse so there was never a high priority to read it. I ha...

review 1: A fantastically creepy and atmospheric story which I liked even more than 'The Midnight Palace'.'The Prince of Mist' is set in a small coastal town in the summer of 1943. 13 year old Max and his older sister Alicia are told by their watchmaker father that he's moving their family...

review 1: Good story line that could have been developed more according to the time when the story happens. It looks like the characters are not impressed at all with the secrets revealed but play to the plot.The issue of fire and its symbolism could have been explored especially as the bo...

review 1: This book has what you need from a mystery novel. It has the suspense, the bit of horror, the clues. It was really captivating to read, and not to hard to stomach, even for big wimps like me. To be fair it may seem like nothing in comparison to readers of Stephen King, or of 'The...

review 1: Na das war ja ein kurzer Spaß. Die Geschichte war viel zu kurz und durch die schnelle Abhandlung der Ereignisse kam so gut wie gar keine Spannung auf. Ich hatte mir erhofft, etwas mehr über die noch immer nicht fertiggestellte Sagrada Familia zu erfahren oder wenigstens etwas pha...
