The Angel Game
Carlos Ruiz Zafón
I'm so excited!!! I just received an ARC gift from Doubleday and Carlos Ruiz Zafón of The Angel's Game due to be released in June 2009. I absolutely loved The Shadow of the Wind! I fell in love with the writing, the characters, the story and the author's talent. I not only recommended this book to friends when it had just been released, but I bought it for many. It was that good. I even have a quote on my blog from the book.
Now, he has written his second book, and I have waited so long for this day. When I went to the mailbox today, I couldn't contain my enthusiasm. I dare not start it, because I have three books going right now.
Included on the front page inside was a really nice letter from William Thomas, Editor in Chief and Publisher for Doubleday. In his letter he says, "If you are a fan of Carlos Ruiz Zafón's novel The Shadow of the Wind, you undoubtedly opened this package with glee." His words couldn't have been more prescient.
This book has been on the best seller's list in Spain, Germany, Italy, Poland, Norway and Portugal. According to the back cover write-up, "1.6 million copies of the Spanish edition are in print and it is the fastest selling book ever in Spain."
So, should I put all aside and just go for it?
