The Angel’s Game

Posted on April 19, 2009. Filed under: 1 |

The Angel’s Game is a prequel to The Shadow of the Wind. “In the turbulent and surreal Barcelona of the 1920s, David Martin, a young novelist obsessed with a forbidden love, receives an offer from an enigmatic publisher to write a book like no other before–a book for which “people will live and die.” In return, he is promised a fortune and, perhaps, much more.

Soon David begins to see frightening parallels between the book he’s been commissioned to write and an old religous manuscript retrieved from the Cemetery of Fogotten Books. Meanwhile, David’s ethereal publisher’s sinister scope of influence begins to encroach more and more upon his own life.”

The above is from the book jacket of the Arc I received in the mail. I think everyone should rush out and buy this book as it will make The Shadow of the Wind make more sense. The book took off for me in the middle of chapter two. I am on Chapter 10, page 58 and enjoying the ride so far. I’ll keep you posted.
