The Shadow of the Wind

I’m still sick. *sighs* Bronchitis is not an easy thing to recover from. Thank goodness for cold medicines that make it slightly less awful.

The Shadow of the Wind / Carlos Ruiz Zafon [It’s a Crime: New Indian Express]

17 August 2016

The Shadow of the Wind is my favourite book to recommend. I have suggested this book to highbrow literary folks when they have asked me for a thriller or a mystery story with literary merit that they can immerse into; to the regular thrill-a-minute readers asking for something a little exotic but up to their taste; to the fans of the classics that have asked for modern classics which, say, feel like Dumas; and to the translation junkie who wants to see a different place and a different time. 141 more words
