Books: Marina

I just finished reading “Marina” by Carlos Ruiz Zafón a Spanish (Barcelona) writer who without any doubt has capture my attention for as long as he continues writing; I can tell you that this novel will not let you stop reading it for a second; its characters, scenario, poetic mysterious writing, the plot is so wonderful that each time you take a break cause your eyes demand you to, you won’t stop thinking on what is going to happen in the next chapter. 458 more words
