    "I had high hopes for this book, but I was disappointed. It had a lot going on, but I struggled with the story line a bit. I appreciated the characters and the settings, but they weren't as strong as I had hoped they would be."

    "This is an amazing concept for a book series. I admit, I worry that some things may be lost in translation as I read it in English, but even so, a mystery surrounding someone trying to destroy an author's entire set of works is unusual and can be compelling for any book lover. Not for the delicate of sensibility, however, as Zafón does not close the curtain on the sex scenes!"
