Like a slow poison, the history of the place seeps into his bones as he struggles with an impossible love. Close to despair, David receives a letter from a reclusive French editor, Andreas Corelli, who makes him the offer of a lifetime. He is to write a book unlike anything that has existed - a book with the power to change hearts and minds. In return, he will receive a fortune, perhaps more. But as David begins the work, he realises that there is a connection between this haunting book and the shadows that surround his home.
Set in the turbulent 1920s, The Angel's Game takes us back to the gothic universe of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books, the Sempere & Sons bookshop, and the winding streets of Barcelona's old quarter, in a masterful tale about the magic of books and the darkest corners of the human soul.

"I've read it twice and still I'm struggling ..."
complicated - fascinating - charming
I got more into Shadows of the Wind than this one
It's very nice to listen to him telling the story
the very end
It's complicated with the many characters. I got lost in the many characters and therefor I am still trying to figure out the story. It wasn't bad at all, just a bit complicated to listen to.
