Reviews

'This is explicitly, and joyously, a book about books, about what can be learned from them (say, how to follow someone in the street), and what is lost when they are lost.' Guardian 'This book is filled with literary allusions, some subtle, some with all the subtlety of the Spanish Inquisition. It is one of the finest examples of magical realism, kindred to everyone from Jorge Luis Borges and Gabriel Garcia Marquez to Isabel Allende. This is more than an exhilarating read: This is an experience not to be missed by those with both heart and mind.' Louisville Courier Journal 'Full of stylish writing, Gothic atmosphere and love letters to 19th-century novels.' Washington Post 'A romantic fantasy for book lovers.' Sydney Morning Herald 'A heady atmosphere permeates every page of Carlos Ruiz Zafon's masterly tale...The city comes alive: the ancient stone buildings, the cobblestone streets, the pedestrians as they hurry along in their dark trench coats...A compelling tale of mystery with as many twists as Barcelona's medieval streets, and infused with a love of delightful language and drama.' Weekend Press (NZ) 'Full of warmth and emotion, The Prisoner of Heaven draws on his previous books to move a step further into a remarkable fictional world.' Sunday Star Times 'An unforgettable series that has attracted fans addicted to the tales of the cemetery of lost books.' Illawarra Mercury 'Zafon relishes the conventions of popular fiction flagrantly manipulating stock characters and concealing mysteries inside mysteries-usually inside books. And that's perhaps the most improbable feature of Zafon's (literally) escapist world: here nothing matters to people as much as old books and the secrets they keep. It's a romantic fantasy for book lovers, but in the digital age it answers a nostalgia for dear old paper book that is only going to grow stronger.' Sunday Age/Sun Herald 'The unique inventiveness in the dialogue and the superb stylish writing behind the story are as engaging as ever,' ABC Queensland
