As I was waiting for a book I ordered off Amazon (which, BTW, is the best place to buy a book...I'm always snatching up new and gently used hardbacks for under $5), I decided to start this book, The Shadow of the Wind, that someone gave me. Never hearing of it nor knowing anything about it, aside from the high praise printed on the back, I jumped right in and was immediately engrossed in the most unusual, quirky, somewhat dark mystery I've read in a while. It is written exquisitely and reels you in to its strange tale right from the beginning. I should finish it soon and will enlighten you with my opinion of how marvelous (or not) the book is, dependent on its ending!
Has anyone else heard of The Shadow of the Wind? Any other captivating reads y'all are going through at the moment that you just can't put down??
