This year has given me for writing about books (as well as other trivia) and today will be less. But today is different, today I want to compare two books and an author. I read both say several things. We will start by the arguments (soil pick of the back of the mystery book publisher when I have it on my bliblioteca or any review of any digital library if they have given me or I've read in digital format). The Shadow of the Wind: A dawn of 1945, a boy is led by his father to a mysterious place hidden in the heart of the Old City: The Cemetery of Forgotten Books.

The Angel's Game: In troubled Barcelona-twenties a young writer obsessed with an impossible love, receives a mysterious offer to write a mystery book publisher editor and has never existed, in exchange for a fortune, and perhaps much more. With stunning style and impeccable precision narrative, the author of The Shadow of the Wind takes us back to Barcelona in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books to offer an adventure of intrigue, romance and tragedy, through a maze of secrets where the spell books, passion and friendship are combined into a master narrative. In its first foray hit bookstores "Shadow of the Wind. " The gossip you have submitted the mystery book publisher to Fernando Lara Awards 2000, rejected in the screening. They also say that one of the critics of the jury sent a copy to our very own Lara and he "suggested" that not only should be among the finalists, also should be considered a serious candidate to win the prize . . . but it was not. That have the gossip, but do not know the truth. Nevertheless, the mystery book publisher had the best marketing possible "word of mouth" and soon became a mystery book publisher defendant, exalted, requested and reprinted several times. The success surprised all and sundry and, above all, the mystery book publisher that the author was a selling machine. Then came "The Angel's Game. " Was promoted as the second part of "The Shadow of the Wind. " Bringing a show to promote the publication. And they sold. It sold a lot and won many awards . . . Such is the power of persuasion and the constant bombardment of the media and so mediocre authors hovers and get in the way real phenomena. It is not fair but true. "The Shadow of the Wind" I can only say that I was surprised and charmed in equal measure. The Cemetery of Forgotten Books is an irresistible attraction because it is plausible. Julian's story, the mystery book publisher writer persecuted by the protagonist is shrouded in a fog of mystery. The plot is well stitched. The characters are very consistent (can on some, some, but not hinder the evolution of the book). The prose is fluid and simple (too much sometimes and other somewhat overblown but that happens in almost all the novels). By putting one but I will say that at first made me slow, very slow . . . but I had been told so I continued. And I was hooked, I was surprised, I liked. I reread with pleasure and, therefore, I recommend it. Now for "The Angel's Game. " In short: let me down as much as I liked the other. Monta engaging story, yes, but disappoints completely (at least to me). Not for nothing is worth the hype that was given, and fortunately, I can only say that luckily did not buy it. Also I find a cheap copy of an old movie and sound, "Angel Heart. " Shit! If even the title seems . . . I will not say more of the mystery book publisher because it is not worthwhile. Yet, not a bad novel, only one more and some even see it entertaining. Certainly never recommend it. One last story. It is rumored that this story is not over and that there are two more books as a continuation. Of course, only sales that are insured but: Will the nose of promoting them as The Angel's Game? I bet you did because the mystery book publisher has seen a bonanza in the author, you know . . . . . . .
